Visited Otto on 12/1, party of 6. We ordered 5 small pies, a little too much for 6 people but we all wanted to try different pies. Crowd favorite Mashed potato, Bacon & scallion.

Portland is a strange town. It is a little bit New Age, a bit alternative (a bit like Totnes, Devon in the UK. So it is no surprise to find such a quirky place in such an ordinary High Street. It is a small, double...More
