    Restored my love for Mexicam food!

    After having a few bad experiences with a street bar i was completely turned off Mexican food, the food never seemed clean and always left an after taste and bad feeling in my tummy. Cafe al Portal is so clean and fresh and lite it was a pleasure and definitely the best Mexican in the neighborhood. Great value for money and they can never do enough for you. Delivery is always fast and i love this place!

    What a find!

    walking thru Soho and happened upon this little basement cantina with cute Xmas lighting and quaint atmosphere. We went in and gave it a try. Full bar and had margaritas. They were only so so. I got nervous for the food but when it came, WOW! Sooooo good. And prices are fine. We had two app's @ $6 each and one main at $10 and were full. The taste of the food was fantastic. I literally wanted to go into the kitchen to thank the chef. What a surprise, what a find. We'll be back

    SoCal Authentic

    I'm from San Diego, moved to NYC two years ago, and haven't been able to find comparable Mexican food here until now. The prices aren't cheap, but the food is literally amazing. The verde sauce is as good as it gets! I've never reviewed anything before but I am now because I just gotta shout out about how excellent the food is! Try it PLEASE! You are doing your mouth and tummy a favor!
