Portico welcomes you with a lively ambiance (Still some work is happening around the restaurant). Caricatures and wall paintings along with filament bulbs lights up the place. The pool view enhances the charm of this place.

The restaurant has an interesting menu with a mix of international & Indian cuisine.

I fueled my belly with few mocktails, starters, sizzler and finally the chocolate biscuit.

Mocktails:-

Spicy Papaya Margarita (Mix of Papaya, jalapeno, rosemary, etc.) :

This was a thick serving of papaya with a tinge of jalapeno. Salt n chilli powder was applied on the rim of the glass and a slice of papaya placed on top. It tasted okay.

Blackberry Caipiroshka (Black berry, mint, lime, sprite):

Though Caipiroshka is a popular cocktail in Latin America, the one served at Portico is for the Teetotalers. For those who love the blackberry taste, this mocktail served with blackberry and lime, is a must try at Portico.
