O Leão de Porches

Delectable dining in the Algarve

In 1970 an English couple discovered a 17th century farmhouse in the centre of Porches – a village just off the EN125 near Carvoeiro and now best known for its wonderful pottery. They saw the potential of this charming building and converted it into a restaurant which thrives to this day.


Porches’ best kept secret is no longer a secret, since Bianca took on the restaurant in 2005 and made it one of the most attractive and appealing places to dine in this part of the Algarve – within easy reach of many golf courses.


The restaurant retains many original features and has a charming patio for those warm summer evenings.


The restaurant is well known for its wonderful sauces and the beautiful presentation of its dishes which are a pleasure to behold and equally delicious.


You can be sure that once you have experienced O Leão de Porches, you will want to share this secret with your friends.
