Terrific food in a lovely serene courtyard. Ideal for that special lunch occasion. Not easy to find,unless you have been there before,but worth locating the restaurant. Have not tried the inside restaurant at night time due to location. For lunch,I repeat,wonderful setting and food to match.

Took us an hour and a half when it should have taken 30 minutes. Trip Advisor directions through Google Maps took us to the center of Faro! It's really up in the hills in a village called Monte Da Palhagueira but our car GPS wouldn't take that as a destination. In spite of our late arrival, we were warmly greeted... More

My wife and I visited on the evening of June 17th and were very impressed. The setting is idyllic, the atmosphere relaxed and the food sophisticated and delicious. The owner made the effort to welcome us and there was no issue when my wife needed her lamb dish cooked longer due to pregnancy. I would urge travellers to this area... More

Wonderful and charming location. We went there as group, were very warm welcomed. We had a table in the beautiful garden and the whole team were very, very friendly and recognized every little thing of us. We really enjoyed the familiar and personal atmosphere, and as I am a vegetarinan, the boss himself created an extra menue for me! The... More

Situated 25 minutes from Faro in the hills above Sta. Barbara de Nexe, near the little villages of Gorjoes and Palhagueira, Le Marquis provides all that one would wish for both in the Winter by the log fires, especially in the evenings, or within the delightful enclosed courtyard in Summer. A charming welcome awaits from the Dutch husband and wife... More
