We had walked around Portofino for some time and decided to stop here with a table almost on the water. We ordered a prosecco each and were served good nibbles to go with this. Price was fine but glad we didn't order the bellinis which were very expensive. That said, a local fisherman was feeding his seagulls. He told us... More

After a week long visit to Italy we were staying a couple of nights in the wonderful Portfino. On our first night we decided to eat dinner at Jolly in the hopes of finding a magical meal to end our trip on. And find it we did. I never thought I would find water so magical that it purportedly is... More

We visited this cafe on a short visit to Portofino. There had been a storm and many of the restaurants were closed to undertake repairs. This restaurant was open. Ordered some drinks and they arrived. Halfway through the drink, the repairers needed access and the sidewalk was closed. The owner yelled ' Pay and go' . I advised that we... More

We arrived on a boat as we were staying there the next evening. Stopped here to enjoy a drink and the view. Service was very poor as if we were an inconvenience to the waiter. Now we are here for a few days would not recommend this stop to anyone.

We arrived very late to Portofino so all the restaurants were closed. We were told the "bars" had food so went to Jolly. The waiter was friendly, helpful and polite. The food was excellent as well. We had thought we would only be able to get a snack given the name of the place, but got a good, quality, filling... More

This was a bucket list visit and after exploring the town, we settled down at Wine Bar Jolly for delicious cocktails and then amazing italian cuisine. Service was very good and meals were value for money.

We were 4 people who just completed a grueling hike from Santa Margherita to Portofino. We were hot and exhausted and starving and Jolly looked inviting. We ordered drinks and sparkling water. I understand that Portofino is a posh destination for the area and was not completely surprised at the 40 euro price tag for one belini. The presentation was... More

We sat here as it was a great spot for people watching and ordered 2 glasses of wine at €7 each. They came with nibbles and the staff seemed friendly so we decided to stay for lunch. We ordered a bottle of local wine and 2 Salad Nicoise - they were absolutely awful and nothing like a proper one. I... More

Simply over priced and not friendly at all. Staff speaks very little English. The only good thing is the location

We went for a drink, sat on the 'boat', then asked for a drink menu. We thought it was a little suspicious when there wasnt one available but went ahead and ordered a coke (330 ml) and a small orange juice. I know the prices are high but 19 eur for two nonalcoholic drinks. You got to be kidding me.... More
