Called Il Porto, the restaurant is located on the first floor of the widely popular and high profile Lebanese restaurant Mirage Marine.
Il Porto claims to be among the very few restaurants in the country that can offer authentic Italian and Japanese cuisines, primarily because it uses only the freshest and finest ingredients, just like the restaurants in Italy or Japan. Moreover, Il Porto offers homemade pasta, while the Sushi is freshly made at the special sushi bar.
“My vast experience in the food industry has taught me that offering a wholesome experience to the customer is just as important as serving high quality and scrumptious food. At Il Porto, diners can enjoy the very best of Italian and Japanese cuisines in an ambience that oozes class and tranquillity,”
said Bilal Hamdar, Founder of Il Porto and Mirage Marine, and someone who has more than 25 years of food industry experience in the UAE.
Il Porto, which offers an excellent sea view to diners, can accommodate more than 100 guests at a time, making it an ideal venue for small private events and functions. With a team of highly experienced chefs who have worked in diverse markets across Europe and Asia, and have specialised in Japanese and Italian cuisines, Il Porto’s menu offers everything from pastas, salads, steaks, sea food and Sushi to juices and desserts.
“When people think of good Italian or Japanese food Il Porto should be the first thing that comes to mind. This is what we’ll be striving for in the months ahead, and we are extremely confident that with the kind of service, quality and authenticity we’ll be offering, this will be easily attainable,” concluded Hamdar.
