Fine Dining Hiawassee GA Cafe PortofinoCafé Portofino offers one of the most elegant dining rooms in the North Georgia Mountains. With a spectacular view of scenic Lake Chatuge, a knowledgeable, friendly staff providing impeccable service, we offer an experience unmatched.

Our executive chef, Andrzej Arnista, prepares dishes with International flare and expert instincts.  The use of  high quality and fresh ingredients is of vast importance and is our standard. Our menu is comprehensive and offers something for all palates.

Try our New Zealand mussels, sauteed to succulent perfection in a white wine reduction with a hint of lemon and garlic. Chef Andrjez’s crab cakes rival those found in the finest dining rooms along the eastern seaboard. Entrees like Tuscan Chicken and our Seafood Stew keep regulars coming back week after week. Perfectly marbled ribeye steaks burst with flavor and delicate fishes, melt in your mouth!

We welcome you to join us at our fully stocked bar we call “Firelight” adjacent to Café Portofino. There you can enjoy a classic or specialty cocktail from one of our talented mixologists!

On Saturday evenings we offer live entertainment with professional pianist, Charlie Teer! Charlie is immensely talented and will delight you with his broad repertoire of music! He performs in our dining room. In Firelight we have local talent from all genres and a large dance floor!
