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 executive chef Stuart Andrew and head chef Chris Bassett 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 for special family events or business meetings.

    We had the tasting menu with matched wines, and every course was delicious. The wine matchings were good, with some standard and some more unusual examples. The counter seating is in the window, so we got to do some people watching at the same time. Service was exceptional, highly recommend

    Weekend lunch and the lunchtime menu was excellent and great value. It was our first visit here and we had a great experience overall. Our only complaints were no tablecloths, slightly cramped tables and I’ve certainly sat in more comfortable chairs. The rather functional dining room was lit up by the friendly and capable front of house team. Busy and deservedly so.

    A small, quite buzzy and fairly informal restaurant. Service was helpful and friendly. Most of the food was excellent, with the exception of my wife's starter, although the dessert was only average. After a couple of false starts, we found wines to our liking.

    Entered early at 12.30pm and was quiet but suddenly everyone arrived at the restaurant was full. The décor is minimal. But the service and food and presentation is quite unbelievable. I have the luxury of dining out a fair amount and this was quite and amazing find. Thank you Portland for a perfect lunch.

    One of the most welcoming Michelin star restaurants ive been to. The atmosphere is bright and open. Everything from the wine, food, and service was consistently great. I only had time for the Al La Carte menu (crab and chicken, both amazing!) , but would love to come back for the tasting menu.

    Celebrated a birthday lunch here and the service and food was incredible! Loved the relaxed ambience and being able to watch the kitchen at work (surprisingly quiet given how bustling it was). The raspberry pisco sour I had as an aperitif was the best I've tried. I had the hoggett as a main, which was wonderfully juicy and tender, my white asparagus starter had me mopping up the sauce with bread. And THAT bread - not often I rave about restaurant bread but the crust on it was sublime. The bitter chocolate tart was my favourite course. My partner loved his pork belly starter and truffled chicken main, and couldn't stop raving about the rhubarb granita. The service really made the experience though - friendly, and prompt without being intrusive or pushy. All the staff were lovely. I shall definitely return!

    Absolutely delectable. For many Michelin-type restaurants the dessert can sometimes be an afterthought, but at Portland the final course was just as good (I had the dark chocolate tart with white asparagus ice cream). Decor was unpretentious, which is a bonus, and the service was friendly and attentive. Will definitely return!

    This is a spectacular restaurant giving you the flavors and high quality cooking you can expect from the best of London restaurants. The hogget, chicken (yes....even the chicken), and the rhubarb dessert floored me. Just a wonderful restaurant for anyone that wants local British ingredients and elevated French techniques, all while tasting amazing.

    My daughter had been the restaurant 2 weeks been and suggested it. The dinner was to celebrate a triple milestone birthdays for my husband and daughters. We were in the private room and Bonnie made us feel at home right away. The initial snacks were very nice as was the whole meal. I particularly enjoyed the tart tartin and the chocolates at the end. We had the feasting menu of the beef wellington and l wanted my beef a little more well done which they happily obliged. The beef came back and was still succulent and juicy! It was cooked perfectly! We also received a little gift of Portland honey which was a nice touch. All in all it was a memorable evening to celebrate the occasions. Also, thanks to Bonnie, Hugo and the team at Portland. We will return again!

    I had to choose one London restaurant for my month here, also a birthday meal and I didn't hesitate for a second.. this place is exceptional.. we had a warm welcome..fantastic friendly.. and dare I say it..rather hunky service.. having worked in the wine trade the wines are very important for me..we had an exceptional selection, fitting in my demanding palate and specific budget. The food was excellent as always, innovative combinations, delicious bites, without fuss and high quality.. what an absolute treat.. thank you Portland.. I'll be back..

    I called beforehand to ask for a secluded table - if there was one - and they did the best they could ensuring that we only had one table next to ours. Very professional and corteous staff. I was especially impressed with the sommelier who gave us great advice on a decently priced bottle of Bordeaux.
