One of the things I really like about this part of the Algarve is how many good restaurants there are to choose from. But, I have to say, I think Le Marquis is the best of the lot. Chef Vincent really knows how to cook and you are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome. It's a little off the beaten... More

The latest of several visits to this welcoming resaurant. We had a wonderful Sunday barbecue lunch in the outside courtyard. Great choice of delicious starters followed by our own choice of barbecue meats and fish. A dreamy dessert to follow. Everything cooked and presented perfectly. The welcome and friendly attention always combine to make it a special occasion when we... More

This is a lovely restaurant, cosy and warm in the winter months and with a beautiful shaded terrace during the summer. The food is exceptionally good and elegantly presented. Perfect for a family lunch on Sundays or for a quiet evening meal for two. A lovely ambience and very professional service

We return regularly for the wonderful, creative food of the talented Vincent. A varied tempting menu. This is the only restaurant I will eat duck as it is served tender and tasty. The ribs satisfy the most picky and unadventurously demanding father in law. But the chocolate dessert is outstanding! We will go back soon!

I tried the fresh pasta with shrimps which was perfect and the followed by Duck and finished with Traditional Dutch Apple, Raisins & Black Pepper Pie served with Custard... More

We discovered le Marquis on our last night in Portugal - wish we had found it sooner. Excellent food using local ingredients, beautifully presented. Staff were extremely friendly, made us feel very welcome, and service was discrete but attentive. Would recommend without hesitation.

Having been favourably impressed by our first visit we made a second visit to finish off our holiday. On both occasions we received a very friendly welcome from a smiling and attentive waitress who looked after our table well for the evenings. There was a good choice from the rather limited Menu but each dish we selected was superbly presented,... More
