Porta is a small cosy restaurant in Park Hotel Clarke Quay at Unity Street. Serving modern European cuisine, it is good for brunch and casual dining all day. It has an attractively priced set lunch and currently has a Chope 1-for-1 Deal.
Porta at Park Hotel Clarke Quay
Located on the ground level of Park Hotel Clarke Quay, Porta opened for business in 2016. Unlike a typical hotel all day dining restaurant, Porta looks like a cosy European restaurant and has an al fresco dining section.
In the air-conditioned dining area, the space between regular dining tables can be quite narrow. Ask for the alcove seats if you want a bit more privacy.
Porta’s menu has recently been refreshed to include a repertoire of European and Mediterranean dishes, combining fresh produce sourced both globally and locally. Besides the a la carte menu, there is a Porta Brunch menu which is available all week from 8.00 am to 4.00 pm.
Below are photos of the Porta brunch menu and the a la carte menu.
On weekdays, Porta offers attractive set lunches from 12.00 pm to 2.30 pm. The choices on the set lunch menu are adjusted regularly for refreshing variety. A 2-course set lunch is priced at $18 (choice of appetiser and main, or main and dessert) and 3-course is priced at $22++ (choice of appetiser, main, and dessert).
Besides the affordably priced set lunch, there are various attractive deals at Porta.
Chope 1-for-1 Deal
The Chope Deal allows you to enjoy 1-for-1 burgers, steak or pasta when you book through the Chope app or website to dine in April 2019 (where the complimentary item must be lower or equal in value compared to the purchased item).

Lunch at Porta
We went to Porta in Park Hotel for lunch on a weekend. We made a reservation through Chope to get the 1-for-1 burgers, steak or pasta deal. We ordered Prawn & Chorizo Pasta ($22) and the Ribeye Steak ($28), which meant that we had to pay only $28 (plus service charge and GST) for both dishes.
It is hard to go wrong paring prawn and chorizo with pasta. Porta’s Prawn & Chorizo Linguine with tomato sauce had a nice balance of spiciness and tartness. It was an easy dish to like.
The 200g Ribeye Steak with Beef Jus was served with spinach and mushroom. It was good enough though nothing very exciting or remarkable.
Good Quality Good value
Overall, Porta in Park Hotel is a nice cosy restaurant which serves quality food at affordable prices. If you can take advantage of one of the promotional deals or go for the weekday set lunch, you can get a really good value meal at Porta.
