My wife and I went here for her birthday dinner, and we were not let down. The place is very cozy with a very nice atmosphere and very attentive staff. We had the five course degustation menu, with four extras from the chef. The duck and the napoleon cake was outstanding. Four two person with water and coffee, the price... More

We stayed in Porches for a couple of weeks and wanted to stay local on our last night. Having read the reviews, we decided to dine here, having eaten at Ocean the week prior, which was our other must-do locally. O Leao de Porches is in a lovely, unassuming setting. I can't comment on the inside as we dined on... More

Visited this place on our last night based on the trip advisor reviews and I am so glad we did. The reviews do not do the place justice, it is simply amazing. We received a very warm greeting and were shown to a lovely table on the terrace. There are two options, a five course tasting menu or order a... More

We have been coming to the Algarve for many years and this was our third time dining at this restaurant - once again it did not disappoint. The service from Bianca is always wonderful - she is a friendly and charming hostess! The menu had plenty of choice, and excellent variation of meat, fish and vegetarian options. The food here...

We were all inclusive in local Armaceo de Pera but wanted a good restaurant and we found this and tried their taster menu which we thoroughly enjoyed... Pretty little village and lovely village dog that visits and receives strokes... Really enjoyed the atmosphere and food ... Very romantic and quiet restaurant and the patio was lovely

Two fantastic dinners with quality ingredients and imaginative menus. Charming staff. Could not fault any aspect (apart from the ladies loo which did not lock!)
