O Leão de Porches

Delectable dining in the Algarve

We will be closed for holidays from the 26th of November till the 20th of December and from the 7th of January till the 31st of January.

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.
