Restaurant is beautiful, overlooking the water. Food was amazing! though our mains took a little long to arrive... our waiter gave us a complimentary drink to make up for the wait.
Highly recommend and will be back :)

Not as good as previous visits. Slow cooked meat wasn't hot enough, but food still tasty.

We have dined here many times and the food and service are usually very good. Unfortunately, it was inconsistent this time and we left disappointed. The food is expensive and the portions are small so they need to be really good if you want people to come back. Entrees were great but the mains were pretty average and the chocolate tart dessert was revolting. What really disturbed me was I asked the waitress what the strawberries were marinated in because they were horrible and she said nothing you probably just ate an off one! Clearly they were all off, including the one we left on the plate. That dessert was $14! Oh and they also charged me a surcharge because I paid with eftpos. We won’t be back.

Ambiance was great. Good for having conversations and spending time leisurely. Food was good but was quite sparse for the serving. For me, the high price did not quite justify the serving size and taste.

Superb food and service, and the setting was just wonderful. We sat next to the windows, which were open for part of our stay. Between four of us we shared several tapas and 2 mains with sides (the ox cheek is to die for!) Will definitely be returning - great to have this level of restaurant in this area.

I work in hospitality as an on floor manager at a restaurant the same quality as this one and was very disappointment that basic service manners are not held here. After being seated for an hour we had only been served 1 of 4 of our courses, which was a miniature sized cup of soup. Not one of the waiters checked on our table regarding food, not having noticed we hadn’t been served in in that long period of time. After mentioning we had not been served it still didn’t seem a priority to serve us our next course over other tables who had sat down after us. Not bread or any other condiments were offered during our time of waiting for food. An hour and 40 minutes passed and we were served our mains. I had to ask the service staff twice to turn down the cooling as it was freezing in the restaurant, then was greeted back with a very rude waitor to tell me it was the fans from the kitchen and they cannot turn it off only down (which was what I had only asked for in the first place, not off just down)
A free round of drinks was offered to us which was nice and I am grateful for that but I do say I won’t be coming back again.

Not sure if it was an off day, but everything was super slow. Items were frequently forgotten, some never came at all.
The lovely waitress was apologetic and constantly coming to check on us, whilst we waited too long for our orders to come out.
Thank goodness we were there with good company, or else the waiting would have been painful!
The food was good, although we were served raw broccolini and asparagus...
Probably won't be going back. The value for money was poor and kitchen really let everything slip through the cracks.

Booked online through Opentable and then turned up and the restaurant was closed! Not impressed at all when we had arranged a babysitter for the kids and then had to scramble at the last minute to find somewhere else to eat.

The food was great and restaurant location is really nice. The style is very relaxed and had a Spanish feel about it. Disappointed with the service, when we selected the wine they came back with a different one and tried to cover it up even when we nicely challenged them about it. Wouldn’t have been a problem if they hadn’t tried to cover this up. Was made to feel like we were creating an issue and it was our problem that they had run out. We booked the later dining time and felt we were being rushed so they could close. Shame we had this negative experience as the food was really very good.

We absolutely loved our experience at Puerto. The food was just amazing and the service was really good. At Puerto, the Chef and his team make truly Spanish food. We had Arroz Caldoso de Marisco (best dish of the night)!, croquetas (super tasty), Gambas con morcilla, Calamari, Pimientos Rellenos and Garbanzos con Chorizo and they were all incredible! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to experience Spanish food.

I was passing by they were setting for dinner I asked if I could have a look in and they asked if I would like a drink at the bar, they were welcoming and took the time to explain the menu while preparing me one of the best whiskey sours I've ever had, I stayed and had a few dishes that the chef was trialing that were excellent, since then I have returned with a friend and have recommended it to many friends.
I work in hospitality and I'm delighted a restaurant of this calaber is now in Patterson lakes

What a fantastic restaurant. One of the best Spanish dining experiences we have had outside of Spain. The food was magnificent with the flavors bang on. Good portion sizes as well. Extensive Spanish wine list to compliment the meal. An absolute must. Thanks to all the staff for their outstanding service which made our dining experience even better.
