What a great place Marco's is. We were in Alvor for 10 days and went to Marco's throughout our holiday. Very friendly atmosphere, Jackie and Mark are a great couple who make you feel very welcome from your first visit.

An ideal place for breakfast, lunch, dinner, a snack, a drink in fact anything! So friendly and welcoming a lovely situation to have a break from the very hard work of sunbathing and splashing about in the pool! Marco cooks the most wonderful food and the best Crepes I tasted in Alvor, had to keep going back!

If you miss your full English breakfast then call in here. We had the mega breakfast but I think the mini breakfast would have been enough. Filled us up for the day.
