Great local food in a Grand setting

With a warm regional town atmosphere and some of the best local produce, the Bistro is the beating heart of the Portarlington Grand Hotel.

It’s here that you can sample the renowned local wineries and enjoy delicious meals such as the famous Portarlington mussels or our signature paella dish.

We can argue if it’s Parma or Parmi, but rest assured that classic dish and many more, will always be available on the menu.

This space will open in a few months when the remainder of the Grand Plan renovations are completed

Brimming with personality and charm. always a welcoming place.
