This is the best restaurant by a long mile, we're lucky enough vist the Algarve every couple of months as we own a villa near Olhao, we can't praise/recommend Le Marquis enough, thank you and well done Helma and Vincent for maintaining such excellent standards of exquisite food, service and ambience. Look forward to seeing you again in March.

We were taken to Le Marquis on Saturday for my partners birthday treat and it was probably the best meal we have ever had. The food was simply superb and the choice was so fantastic. You really felt that the plates were so exquisite they needed to be photographed. Can't wait to go back again and its only 10 mins... More

I've been to this restaurant a few times, and it´s getting better every time! It's the ideal scenario for romantic dinners with your soulmate, both during winter (close to the fireplace with candle light), or summer (on the rustic porch). Regular changes to the menu are made, to give you the opportunity to taste a variety of exquisite dishes well... More

We chose this fine place for lunch after attending services at Saint Luke Anglican Church next door. Very friendly hostess, nice table and excellent food. Today menu selections were very English and most of the other diners appeared to be Snowbirds from the UK. Restaurant is small and cozy. Its high rating is well-deserved.

Deserving of the accolades,it was far and away the highlight of a miserable week on the Algarve.On a dark damp night met with a warm welcome from the lovely Helene,and showed straight to our table.She has created a beautiful ambience,and Vincent a superb menu.Not cheap,but worth every euro. Just one tiny niggle,why just strawberry,vanilla,and chocolate ice cream?

Far from the madding crowd is where we like to stay in Portugal. We also like to finish off our fortnight with Helma and her team at Le Marquis. Food is always excellent, service is brilliant and a lovely atmosphere. And Helma, if you read these reviews, we will take you up on that Tennis challenge next year!!

Travelled from up from QDL to Marquis for dinner, it's not that far and worth making this small effort, for what we can only describe as world class food and service. Vincent's cooking is serious, from the amuse bouche through each course was just a pleasure. Fantastic wines and a special port to finish. Do not miss this experience....

Our villa is only five minutes away, but were it 45 minutes away Le Marquis would still be one of our favourite restaurants in the Algarve. Helma and her husband Vincent provide a quiet, elegant setting - wonderful to be outside in warm weather in a very sheltered courtyard; friendly and warm inside in the winter. The menu is always...

We've been going to this restaurant for years and it never dissappoints, sometimes a little quiet but otherwise "superb". To date this is the best food we have found in the Algarve, but maybe we should look harder. Good selection of wines available, from countries other than Portugal, other restaurants please take note. Also super value for the quality available.
