What People Say

“If I could give The Porch Light more than 5 stars I would. This evening we had a private event for a family occasion. The customized menu that Chef Jeremy created impressed everyone which is quite an accomplishment with a European family! Very unique combinations of very fresh and flavourful ingredients and lots of it. The owner, Helder, made us feel so at home and well looked after. Great music, lovely wines and cocktails, and the play room at the back was an added bonus. All this plus very reasonable prices and right in my neighbourhood. Thank you Porch Light for a stress-free and memorable family party!”

Lily L

“What a quaint, cozy, relaxing, and delicious spot. Well made food with fresh, healthy ingredients. Hope the light stays home for a long time to come. Will be back and back and back.”

Carley Kohen Becky F

“We were looking for someplace for dinner in our neighborhood this evening and decided to try The Porch Light based on their posted menu which was tempting and had quite a few options for vegetarians. Very glad we did - the atmosphere is great, the service was excellent and the food was absolutely amazing. It was a prix fixe menu (great value) and, where possible, we ordered different items so we could share. Everything was delicious. Fresh, not overly complicated but very interesting combinations of flavors and ingredients. We'll absolutely be back!”
