About Puerto

An alluring Spanish flair draws a crowd of trendy Patterson Lakes locals to Puerto, a Latin inspired tapas bar and restaurant located in Harbour Plaza. Unwind with a glass of Tempranillo, surrounded by the sleek sophistication of Puerto’s interior design, with a position perched right on the edge of the water as a backing track of suave music whisks you away to an exotic Mediterranean location. As the mouth-watering smells of Spanish influenced cuisine pull you back to reality, decide on a sumptuous bite to eat from a tempting menu range. Graze over charcuterie and freshly shucked Pacific Oysters before delving into plates like crispy fried pork hock with salted apple and pickled chilli, later finishing with a dessert of cinnamon and orange scented crème brulee and wood-fired pear.

Wow, wow what a cracker
The four of us had dinner at this restaurant last night, what can i say? We had quite a range of tappas and they were all exceptional. Was already getting quite full after the tappas, but i had to have one of the main steak's as well which was again... spot on. The ambiance was very nice and the music was not to load. Prices were very reasonable. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone, who needs rockpool! Very nice, thats all i can say.


Enjoyed the lunch special, very good value and flavoursome. Friendly and efficient service. Good ambience and view over the lake. Try it and enjoy.


Food, wine, atmosphere is brilliant in every way.


A classy local restaurant with outstanding view. The interior decor creates beautiful ambience. Many sublte tasty selections on the menu. Service excellent. Good value for that special outing. We look forward to returning with friends.



Tried Puerto in Patterson Lakes for the first time tonight and I will be back. The fitout is spectacular, very lux and interesting, very much upmarket Spain, with beautiful views across the harbour which were as pretty post-sunset as they were prior. Attention to detail in everything is obvious, food, decor and cocktails were all lovely and this is a "special occasion" venue for everyday use as it doesn't come with a ridiculous price tag. I had 3 courses and three superb cocktails for around $80 and the food was great. (It was Thurs night Happy Hour with half price cocktails though so you'd probably add $20 or so for any other night) I love dining out and really enjoy good restaurants and Puerto does well to match up to quality restaurants in the CBD. Only criticism is cocktails were a little slow in coming but they were worth the wait, and in three rounds, it was probably only the first that was a bit slow. Staff were friendly and helpful and able to make recommendations on the restaurant. If you are looking for a restaurant where you get huge meals at low cost, this may not be your style, but if you are looking for something a little different, with refinement, taste, gorgeous surrounds and warm ambience, and you appreciate quality in your food, then this is worth checking out. They've only been opened since Jan 2016 so hopefully the local community gets behind them and supports the venue.
