Went to this restaurant for my partner’s birthday dinner as we were craving seafood. The restaurant offers indoor and outdoor seating. There’s plenty of food options and Johnny the waiter was more than happy to assist in selecting our food. The service was on point and the food was delicious. The prices are a bit high but are well worth it. I would definitely recommend trying out this place as a special treat.

Happy travels,
Alex

Visited this place for my birthday on sept. 17 thought of all the options but opted for seafood. This restaurant is located in a multi plaza next to the Holiday in. They have inside and outside seating with nice lighting through out very quiet to eat and the service is great. The waiter Johnny really did great he was on point and kept checking up to make sure everything was going well with our food. He was also very helpful with recommendations for food as it was our first time eating at this place. Food was very delicious and nicely presented. They sell liquor there and a multitude of beverage options. We chose the strawberry lemonade and to our surprise it’s made with real strawberrys. Over all I do recomed this place if you are looking for good seafood this is the place to go.

Don’t forget to try the Risotto with Mushrooms and octopus and squid.

Very rich and full flavor. You can ask for hot sauce that complete the dish perfectly

About 10 business colleagues had dinner there the other night. Great Ceviche selections! Entrees were all outstanding. Steaks were also very good for non-seafood eaters. Would highly recommend Porto 8 to anyone looking for a great meal. Only recommendation is for them to add bourbon (Makers Mark or Woodford) to the shelf.

I have been to several good restaurants in SJO, but this restaurant is pricy and has a low quality seafood. It’s overrated and flavorless.
