QLD Tourism welcomes Portofino on Bank, in Port Fairy You'll discover wonderful places to visit in Port Fairy.
Even without the scenery en route, it would be worth driving the Great Ocean Road just to dine at Port Fairy’s Portofino on Bank. Set in the heart of town in what was the Port Phillip Savings Bank (built in 1868), Portofino is one of the region’s most acclaimed restaurants. A crackling open fire sets the mood along with deep chocolate décor, elegantly set tables, and racks of wine that reach up to the ceiling. Service is personable and attentive, and the menu defined by contemporary Italian flavours and finesse. Portofino on Bank's award-winning wine list ensures a perfect match for every meal, be it Sichuan pepper crusted pork belly on sweet potato puree, or white chocolate and macadamia brulee with honey and lavender ice-cream.

Pasta was under cooked - not al dente but undercooked. Bolognese sauce was under cooked. Dessert sorbet, three sorts all tasted the same. My husband had bread and butter pudding which was high on bread and low on everything else. Waitress was inexperienced and the music was everything but Italian. Very disappointing.
Despite a decent-looking pasta menu on offer, this place was embarrassingly bad. Not only did they get three out of four of our orders completely wrong; the food that did come out was pretty much a disgrace given the city-level pricing. The quality of both the "house made" pasta (dismally undercooked, tasteless and waxy) and the depressingly-bland accompanying "sauces" (bewilderingly a garlic-free zone) was so poor I can safely say we could've done better at home ourselves. Waitress was apologetic however the kitchen's performance was pretty much inexcusable. AVOID.
Siamo stati ieri sera per cena in questo ristorante,ed è stata una piacevole sorpresa dopo un anno in Australia trovare un ristorante così piacevole. Il servizio a tavola è stato impeccabile ed il cibo squisito! servito con eleganza e nelle giuste proporzioni. Ancora grazie a tutto lo staff che ci ha permesso di trascorrere una così piacevole serata. Torneremo sicuramente!!
