This restaurant rarely disappoints with such dedicated professionals in charge - Dutch owner chef extraordinaire Victor and his highly attentive front of house wife Helma run a very tight ship. They love great food, wine and ambience and find it both their job and pleasure to deliver all these things!

Le Marquis is a little out of the way but well worth the taxi fare. Excellent food - European (not that modern at times) and great hilltop location. We ate in the lovely walled garden which was pleasant, both in midday heat and in the evening. Every dish we tried was fantastic - Niçoise salad was exceptional but ask for... More

We chose the set menu had two courses a bottle of wine 23euros plus water coffee/tea and the bill came to 98 euros. It was very good but high for this rural setting.

We have been to Portugal 30 plus times and recently stay around St Barbara de Nexe. We didn't know about this restaurant until this time when we came across it by accident and thought we would try after seeing the reviews on TA. The reviews are all true. Lovely food, good choice, reasonable prices and excellent service. We are here... More

My wife and I love it here, and go at few times each year when we are in town. From the warm greeting from Helma to the delicious Michelin standard food from Vincent, Le Marquis cannot be bettered. An absolute gem.

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

From beginning to end everything was amazing, from the food to the location to the atmosphere, just perfect! The hosts Helen and her husband chef Vincent were so welcoming and it was wonderful to observe their passion for food. To start we had chicken liver, it just melted in my mouth. For main I had salmon, which was cooked to... 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
