We have been in Port House many times, usually we had good experience in that place. However our last visit was nothing more than a disaster. It started from very beginning, waitress walking around empty handed and not even acknowledging our existence (it must be the invisible cloaks we wear). Moving forward to the food, we ordered 6 tapas as we always do. Mix seafood plater (12€) - the portion is so "big" that we could even count the pieces of food. Also the platter arrived without the aioli which was stated clearly on the menu. When we mentioned that to the waiter. He said it doesn't come with aioli only with a piece of lemon. Catalan bread (3.75€) - I can easily say Jacobs crackers are bigger than the size of that catalan bread, creamy mushrooms (4.55€) are even smaller with few pieces of mushrooms (sorry I should say mushroom as singular) on toast. Selection of croquettes (6 pieces), but what arrived was 4 and a broken one with a little bit burned on the side or maybe just oil wasn't changed for a while its hard to say, when sent back new plate arrived, you think? no, it was just one piece added and broken croquet turned upside down so it can't be notice that is still the same broken one. The last but not least Sangria - if you take out all fruits and ice, you only end up with shot of diluted liquid and couldn't taste much of red wine. and then we ended up ordering 2 more tapas which brings as to total of 8 with a bill of 65€. We came in not that hungry and left not that stuffed. The End
