Listings Portal Restaurant and Bar


Portal combines the buzzing conviviality of Iberian dining with bold interior design. Spilling back into a glorious glasshouse, the airy dining area lends an alfresco feel that is spectacular both day and night.


The new courtyard is in the guise of a modern Portuguese patio, cocooned by dark, red brickworks.


The cuisine is a sumptuous blend of Portuguese with hints of Atlantic and Mediterranean. The menu exhibits a great sense of balance in the freshness and the lightness of intense flavours, putting a unique twist on traditional Portuguese fare. The extensive wine list provides the perfect finishing touch to your gastronomic experience.

BARBICAN LIFE NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE


Barbican Life magazine has now resurrected its website – www.barbicanlife.com – and complete issues of the magazine are now available to view starting from the Autumn 2011 issue in a great ‘turning page’ format. This will, of course, make the magazine viewable by non-residents who do not receive hard copies and should thus be of particular interest to other local residents in Golden Lane, Bridgewater House etc. Do visit the website and have a look for yourselves and let your friends know too.
