yes it is Portuguese


Explanation:
but honestly is is not possible to say accurately what it means. There are too many mistakes in it and probably words missing in between.
Portuguese is my mother tongue and I can't make anything of it, or at least nothing that makes sense
Fist of all girlfriend is English
then the word mina means "mine" as in mining. I suppose you might have meant "minha" which means "my" or "mine" as in this is mine or that is mine.
I leave you here the translation of the words and perhabs you can make sense of it. The way the sentence is written I could only try to guess

O = The
girlfriend is English. In Portuguese it would be "amiga" (just a normal friend) or "namorada" (if referring to a romantic relationship)
da = of
mina = ??
e = and
a= the
menina = girl (little girl)
em que = in which
mais = more
bonito = nice, beatiful, pretty
mais bonito = nicer, prettier
eu = I
ajusto = adjust
sempre = always
meus = my
olhos = eyes

hope it helps you!

neutral  Ana Rita Santiago: just to add something: in SP "mina" is slang for menina, girl.But it sounds strange to say "the girl's girlfriend".

just to add a note


Explanation:
I dont seem to be able to add a note to my previous answer so here goes:

"e" means "and", but "é" means "it is"...just in case an accent is missing

also: "alhos" is the plural for "garlic" so I guess it should be "olhos" as in "eyes"

a notional trans


Explanation:
as a rough translation/interpretation

My girlfriend is the prettiest girl on which I have laid eyes


Rearranging the words makes more sense of the original:

a minHa 'girlfriend' e a menina mais bonitA em que eu ajusto sempre meus Olhos
