always a delight

My wife and I ate at o Leao again last Friday. And we had a perfect meal - again. In the summer we sat outside in the charming courtyard but this time (of course, it being January) we were in the cosy dining room. And what an architectural gem the dining room is. But it was the food we we... read more

Yes, you will not be disappointed. Bianca and her staff are interested in ensuring you have a good food and drink experience and then for you to enjoy it. If you really want Portuguese fine dining then this is it. Yes you pay a price but more than reasonable. Excellence does not come cheap.

This restaurant was chosen as we wanted to treat our daughter and family at the end of our holiday. It did not disappoint. We were greeted warmly at the door and shown to our table. The menu provided just the right balance in terms of fish and meat and all of our meals were delicious - from our six year... More

Set in a 17th century farm house, this restaurant will not disappoint. The ambience is just right, candle lit and with excellent service by the owner and her staff. The quality and presentation of the food makes this restaurant a must to visit. Authentic setting with what would be best described as gourmet food. We are staying at the Vila... More

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely evening in the restaurant with top class food and service. Strongly recommended if you want to have an evening with good food in a relaxed atmosphere. Prices are higher than other restaurants in the area, but truly worth every cent.

We stumbled upon this little place 25 years ago and loved it. So wanted to try it again and although it has been taken over since then, it is equally as good. But not as cheap - in fact this has gone very upmarket which reflects in the size of the bill ! Worth it for a special occasion. Hidden... More

We chose O Leao de Porches for dinner on our final night of our holidays and what a good choice we made. The setting in the restaurant is beautiful from the moment you enter, we opted to sit outside on the terrace which is surprising quite a large area and extremely comfortable. Throughout the night it did get a bit... More
