Owners Joe and Ben Wright, responsible for the spectacular Joseph Benjamin restaurant next door, opened this authentic tapas bar in 2012, creating a relaxing dining and drinking experience akin to the tapas bars of Barcelona. Porta beckons you to try its casual and welcoming atmosphere and spend some time delving into its fantastic food and wine.
Informal seating and a no-bookings policy reinforces the lively, festival atmosphere, easily making it one of the most relaxing nights out in Chester. Classic tapas dishes are faultlessly presented including fine Jamon, tomato bread, padron peppers, croquetas and patatas bravas— all simple but delicious and incredibly moreish.
No tapas bar is complete without superb sherries and wines; Porta keeps things simple with a regularly changing chalk-board of stunning Spanish and some wider- European examples. They even manage to sneak in some of the tastiest Spanish lager and UK craft beers—so there really is something for everyone.
