A good place to grab a quick bite to eat, when you don't want to have a full restaurant meal. Service can be a bit slow, but friendly.

A must in St Julians, the best cappuccino on the island in our opinion. Nice staff, very good food, you always feel welcome, a perfect place to spend your time at for dinner, a cup of coffee or just to have a drink in the sun. Long to go back to this place over and over again. See you soon... More

The most European cafe in Malta - a nice place and very civilised. Service can be poor and food very mediocre.

We have used this Cafe Bar many times over the last few years. Whether for a snack, afternoon coffee and cake ( a great selection!) or evening drinks, never been disappointed.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch on the terrace. They were happy to adapt my husband's ftira to vegetarian which included lots of cheese and my meal also came with lots of mozzarella, in fact our snacks were more like a main course! The service was very friendly and attentive. As for value, very good, not cheap or expensive, just right for... More

Description
Caffe` Portomaso is the oldest outlet of the Marina Restaurants fleet and has been operating successfully since 2003. It is situated below the Portomaso Business Tower (adjacent to the Hilton Hotel) and is a great place for shoppers, sightseers and the business community for a quick drink or a bite to eat. Caffe` Portomaso, like all the other outlets, has both inside and outside seating. The outside terrace is set up with outdoor wicker furniture where canopies are opened in order to shelter guests from the strong rays of the sun in the summer months and the rain in the winter months. Caffe` Portomaso has got an inside seating capacity of approximately eighty covers and an outside seating capacity of forty covers. The inside is designed to give a warm and 'homey' feeling, where many choose to make the coffee shop their spot to have a cup of coffee and read the newspaper in the morning.
