There can't be many better placed restaurants than Le Marquis as you arrive with the sun setting over the Algarve. It isn't the easiest restaurant to find as it isn't obviously signed and lies inland near a the village of Gorjoes. The restaurant is situated in part of a residential nursing home which is made up of a number of... More

A friend and I had the pleasure of a Sunday roast lunch here. A stunning setting in the courtyard, with beautifully presented food and our gracious host made for a memorable visit. My only disappointment was that the roast pork was finished and I had to settle for the (melt in your mouth) roast beef. The fishcake for entree was... More

That sounds an absurd boast and, of course, we couldn't possibly know that but we believe that the culinary standard, imaginative menu, freshness of ingredients would take a lot of beating. Vincent and Helma have a wonderful restaurant here in a lovely, tranquil, traditional setting serving Portuguese dishes with an international flair and the set menu is really good value... More

We had a fabulous evening in this restaurant. What an incredible find and congratulations to the chef Vincent for coming 2nd place in such a prestigious competition throughout the whole of Portugal. Vincent and his wife run this restaurant to such an excellent standard and the food is exquisite. I had the best home made pasta (as a starter) that... More

A wonderful experience. Every detail, every flavor are there for a reason. Plan your drive ahead of time as the address may be misleading to locals who have not visited, therefore you may get abbreviated directions.
