Our Menu

Using quality and local produce, the menu is rich in Portuguese food specialities such as cataplanas, a traditional portuguese dish that can feature fish, seafood or meat. There is always a fresh Catch of the Day available to be grilled and enjoyed with a light salad. There is a choice of steak dishes too, including the delicious Portuguese Style Steak.

All the desserts served at Porches Velho are made in our own kitchens following traditional recipes and methods.
