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.
Portofino On Bank has interesting facts - Why are Pubs called Hotels in Australia? A pub, short for Public House, is an establishment whose main function is to serve alcohol, mostly beer. Also known as an Ale house or Tavern. The reason for this is that until recently, in Australia (late 1980s), pubs were forced, by the liquor laws, to provide accommodation and so were accurately called hotels.
