During the day Portofino is really busy with people arriving via Ferry so take a wander to Castello Brown and then onto Faro di Portofino. Its a lovely walk and the views from the bar are stunning. The barman is really entertaining and provides free nibbles and wonderful cocktails made with love!!! A must visit!!

This place is well worth a visit. The views of the Ligurian coast are beautiful and the cocktails were superb. We had a lovely walk up to the light house which boasted beautiful scenery and history. The bar owner was also a great character and very friendly.

Getting to the Faro di Portofino involves a wonderful little hike from town with great views of the town and sea. But the great surprise was finding a host with such great energy as Antonio has. He is definitely as good as it gets! Great music, nice drinks, and a spectacular view. Definitely recommended.

Amazing View, Very Pleasant Bartender, Host & Dj couldn't do enough for us. It was a lovely to reach the top for a cold drink and some snacks. We visited each day after our hike to the lighthouse.

The walk up is long, but not difficult and the views are amazing. I was disappointed that the cafe/restaurant that is talked a lot about in the reviews was closed because having a nice drink with that view as a reward would have been fabulous - especially if there had been music as many have reported. But looking back on... More

We took a long walk up to this bar but it was definitely worth it for the views alone. The owner is very friendly and service is good. The views are stunning!
