Portland opened in 2015 and received a Michelin star the same year - which we have retained to this day. We try to offer the best contemporary example of fine dining in London – the finest produce we can find cooked with precision and a high level of technique led by our head chef Theo Clench and his team.

We offer a la carte and also a Tasting Menu at lunch and dinner.

Wine is as important as food and service at Portland. Our main wine list aims to offer brilliant value on interesting, different wines which we hope you seldom see on restaurant wine lists. Our Single Bottle List contains around 100 bins of some of the world’s finest wines and also more accessible offerings from our favourite producers.

Apart from the main restaurant, we hope that our private room and its offer of secluded and separate dining is just the thing you might be looking for as we take our steps back into eating and drinking with the people we love…We are looking forward to we

I like this restaurant a lot. It has excellent food while not being too presumptuous. They are very welcoming and very tolerant to food sensitivities. Overall a great experience.

5 stars on all counts.
It couldn’t be better. The food is inventive, truly delicious, skilful yet showing passion. The staff is also excellent, knowledgeable and professional but also friendly enough to create a vibrant atmosphere.

A wonderful understated Michelin Star restaurant that deserves the star if not two stars.
The staff are attentive and helpful. Definitely recommend over some of the more well known Michelin Star restaurants.

We had an incredible meal at Portland for my father's 60th birthday. The tasting menu was excellent, every dish carefully thought through and delicious. The team at Portland even wrote a card for my dad to make it even more special - Thank you!

We went here for a wedding anniversary and were looking for an modern European restaurant with a tasting menu. The food was great and the service was attentive and firendly, and the ambience was good. The bill for the two of us was £290 which is not cheap but given the quality of the food I was quite happy to pay. I would defininiety come back a second time!

The staff were amazing and the food delicious. Fresh ingredients heightened and allowed to shine, and taste combinations to die for.

The soft drinks my friend and I were drinking were very expensive for what they were but everything else was priced very reasonably.

A few more vegan options would also be appreciated but I'd definitely go back.

Really pleased to be able to revisit - as before, excellent food and service, and the wine list has been refreshed so some interesting new additions. Venison dish is very good, snacks at the beginning well worth paying for. Thanks to all the team for a lovely meal.

Another fantastic experience at Portland! The staff are so lovely and it's such a relaxed environment that you can fully enjoy the food and drink. Every course of the tasting menu was incredibly tasty with interesting and well balanced flavours and textures. Our favourites were the sea bass and venison and the hollandaise sauce from the amuse bouche was amazing. We opted for a few of the paired wines and the dessert wine was incredible. Highly recommended, we'll definitely be back.

What really sets them apart is their fantastic staff, we felt so well taken care of - nothing is too much trouble. Thank you to the whole team, especially Ilaria, for a fantastic evening.

Went here for lunch on our 30th wedding anniversary and it certainly lived up to our expectations!
The taster menu, with wine flight was magical. The service impeccable- if you have not visited and you are a “foodie” and or like interesting wines this is a must visit restaurant.
Thanks all for making our lunch special!

Visited Portland on a Saturday for a special meal with my partner. Food experience was excellent - the pre-starter courses were understated but enjoyable; Raviolo with truffle starter was good; standouts were the Pollock main and Strawberries dessert. Looking forward to visiting again soon.
