Loews Resorts at Universal Orlando
Harbor Nights Romantico 2023 Menu Items and Prices

The Harbor Nights Romantico event
at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel is taking place on Friday, February 17th
this year, and it's one of those events that does sell out in advance… so if you want to go (especially if you want to sit in the VIP section), now is the time to start planning.
All of the Harbor Nights
events follow a similar format… but each specific seasonal night features different decor, music, and food items. Each of the resort's restaurants bring a tapas style, plated version of a dish and wine that represents their location. Guests can eat and drink as much as they want for one ticket price from 5:30pm - 8:00pm.

The Harbor Nights Romantico event takes place in the vast piazza (courtyard) behind the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. In this photo, the VIP Tables are on the right (white tablecloths) and the General Ticket tables are on the left (black tablecloths with no chairs).
The Harbor Piazza at Portofino Bay is set up for a Harbor Nights event. The VIP Seating is on the right with the white table cloths and the general "Standing Ticket" area has a few high-boy style tables with black table cloths on the left.
The all-inclusive event features some great entertainment with a live band and dancing area, along with a couple of opera singers for good measure, free self-parking, and as many samples of the food and beverages listed on the menu below, for the duration of the event.
- Standing Ticket : A $79 (per person, plus tax and ticket fee ends up being $91.74) "Standing Ticket" includes all of the above, but does not guarantee a table or a seat. Some "high boy" type of strolling tables are available, but are very limited — and there really are only a handful of chairs here and there.
- VIP Ticket : A $109 per person, plus tax and ticket fee ends up being $125.83) "VIP Ticket" includes all of the above, plus gets you a reserved table and seating in a special area with an additional hors d'oeuvres plate — along with some exclusive food and wine sampling stations (where the lines aren't as long as they are in the general "standing" area).
