Hidden amongst a business complex and surrounded by offices, Portico is not a place you'll stumble upon. This hidden find, with its large al-fresco dining area and edible herb garden, serves up innovative and tasty modern European fusion cuisine in a laid-back, relaxing setting. Portico, which means 'porch' in Italian, is also known for its support of local, Singapore produce; where possible, all ingredients are locally sourced.

Ambience at Portico is designed to resemble a comfy home, with a relaxing outdoor al-fresco garden dining, and the interior calling to mind an intimate living room. Pictures of the staff frame line the wooden cabinets along the wall, and the low atmospheric lighting lends to the feeling of tranquility. You immediately feel like just chilling for a long time here. There's also a pool table outdoors, where dining is nice on breezy evenings.

Service at Portico is friendly, welcoming, and efficient. I note that staff offer greetings, and are quick to seat guests, as well as clear empty / dirty tables. They have a good grasp of the menu, which changes fairly regularly, and can answer general questions about dishes. Kudos to Head Chef Nixon Low for heading up an excellent team!

Food at Portico is fine dining, modern European fusion cuisine, with elements of Singaporean influence. Great care is taken in the preparation and presentation / plating of each dish, such that each is an individual work of art, photo worthy plates of food presented to discerning diners. And it doesn't just look pretty, because Head Chef Nixon Low and team ensure each dish packs flavour and texture, combining to dazzle and please the palate. And while portions are relatively hearty, such gourmet wonders don't come cheap, expect a decent meal here to cost about SGD $60 or more per person!

The Portico Chicken Wings With Chili Lime Dip (SGD $8 / $15 / $27) has a crisp, flavourful batter that crunches nicely to reveal tender, juicy, piping hot chicken meat. There is a sense of nostalgia eating this, as the taste of the batter resembles those from a famous Singaporean fried chicken brand, while the fiery chili with a sharp zing resembles the potent chili you get at the best barbecue chicken wings stalls!

The Salad Of Vine Ripened Tomatoes, Jamon Serrano Slices, Organic Quinoa, Honey Melon Dressing (SGD $17) is a house signature salad, and the combination of tastes and texture is just delightful. You have the bright juicy freshness and tart sourness of the marinated tomatoes, the sweet juicy rock melon, the chewy quinoa, and the salty, savoury taste of the jamon serrano, and the crunch of the shallots, seaweed, and jamon serrano crisps! Highly recommended!
