Food was good but only small portions. No bread offered with meal. We had prawn and Calamari pasta, Hard to find the Calamari pieces and only a few prawns. Thought there would be much more of a selection of seafood on the menu than there was. Trying to be a bit pretentious, and overpriced for what it is.

Pasta we ordered is yummy, my daughter loves it. The lambi ordered is well cooked. I would say this isn't a luxury place, but a nice restaurant for family gathering

Pleasant place for a pot of tea and decadent cakes on a cool, rainy afternoon. Italian raspberry cake and coconut layer cake were very rich, and really didn't need the decorative drizzles of syrup on the plate. Our two wait staff couldn't have had more different styles... at least one of them looked like she didn't mind being there.

Went here for dinner while staying in Portland for a couple of nights. We had the seafood platter for two. It was rather pricy but when it arrived it was just amazing. Everything was perfectly cooked and the flavours were to die for. We were very disappointed that we couldn't finish it. Apparently it beats everyone!

Edwards Waterfront is part of the Henty Hotel Complex on Bentinck St and looks like a very trendy bistro from the street view. They do breakfast lunch and dinner. We dropped in for a cold winters night dinner and had the fish and chips. The view is great across the road to the ocean, yet not so great at night.... More

Many menu selection options with a substantial wine list with gems from Coonawarra. Lovely view of Portland Harbour, and to finish the dinner, a variety of deserts and good coffee.

Great tasting food, well presented and good service. Place wasn't busy, maybe 6 or 7 tables, but waitress was very attentive and managed to be at the table at exactly the right times for us to order drinks, food and night cap. Waitress was very friendly and very knowledgeable about what was on offer.
