Location and contact

The spacious dining room is glamorous and comfortable, casual but with a sense of occasion. The drinks list offers a good range of food-friendly Spanish wines you can browse the collection in the dramatic glass wine cellar. Service is friendly and competent, the view is delightful and the food is very good. But it's the satisfaction of finding a hidden treasure that elevates Puerto's appeal - Age Good Food Guide 2016

Pretty disappointing to hear that my family member came to Puerto to buy me a gift voucher for christmas knowing it's one of my favourite restaurants. Noticing that the restuarant opens at 5.30, she drives down (quite a distance from her place) to be greeted...More

So over Suburban restaurants that charge city prices for suburban fare. This restaurant is outstanding. Ideally positioned on the waterfront. A quality fit out in Spanish decore. The service and food are as good as it gets. The menu has choices that are appealing and...More

Lovely restaurant, hidden from the street. The restaurant has quite a good ambiance and the view over the river is lovely. Our table was a little wonky, and the overhead airconditioning kept coming on and freezing us on an already chilly Melbourne evening, besides that...More

Had tapas lunch with friends. Food was excellent, we had the olives, the garlic prawns, the pork belly, and the pate. Would recommend all of them. The recommended Spanish wine (Rojo Granicha) was delicious. Not cheap, but good value. Highly recommended.
