SEYCHELLES - The art of gastronomic cookery has been taken to a new level at Portobello at Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa on Silhouette Island. Guests can enjoy a mix of unforgettable food and exquisite wines with elegant service and a unique ambience. Inspired by the most traditional ingredients in Italian cuisine Chef Gaetano at Portobello offers diners authentic dishes created with care and with a special twist.

The romantic lakeside setting of Portobello flaunts stunning views of Mount Dauban from the dining room and terrace. Diners can relax in the cool comfort of the modern, minimalist restaurant or choose to enjoy beautifully prepared food al fresco under the starry skies of Seychelles. Below the chic, contemporary restaurant lies an expansive wine cellar serving some of the most exclusive wines from all over the world. Wine can be expertly paired to complement each dish and create the ideal fusion of flavours to complete the guest's Mediterranean dining experience.

Renowned Chef Gaetano hails from Sicily and cites his grandmother as a great inspiration in his cooking, which is rooted in the classical Italian repertoire. Gaetano said, "I like to use the flavours, cultures and traditions of Sicilian dishes, and present them to guests here so they can have a taste of Italy here in Seychelles".

Expect seasonal ingredients, local greens and fruits picked fresh from the organic garden on Silhouette. The ingredients are prepared to perfection throughout the Mediterranean-Italian menu, which is revived every three to four days, allowing diners to sample a range of Portobello's Italian-inspired delicacies throughout their stay. The menu features classic icilian ingredients like squid ink and capers, as well as the unusual flavours that give Chef Gaetano's dishes a distinctive flavour, such as mint, lobster, fennel and passion fruit. The colourful, balanced dishes present the perfect contrast in both flavour and textures. Signatures such as Parmigiana, inimitable Black Tortellini with basil foam, local 'catch of the day' served with modern Mediterranean accompaniments, are beautifully presented for guests to savour.

"For intimate celebrations, business, romance or carousing, the elegant Portobello is the perfect restaurant in the ideal setting" said Claus Steiner, cluster general manager, Hilton Seychelles Hotels. Bespoke menu options are available for groups wishing to dine in Portobello, whether in the dazzling wine cellar or in the exotic atmosphere of the open-air terrace.

Enchanting Portobello presents the finest Italian cuisine fused with fresh new flavours, surrounded by the tropical paradise of Silhouette Island, taking guests into another world at Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa.

Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa is located on Silhouette Island, 20km northwest of Mahé. This luxurious mountainous beach hideaway is sandwiched between a dazzling 2.5km long white beach with leaning palms over turquoise seas strewn with granite boulders and tropical forest.
