One of the best restaurants in Portugal

It was hard to get us there - but worth it by far! - it is a great place, owner-managed, great food, atmosphere and, while a little north on price, worrh it fully. Highly recommended!

We visited Le Marquis on a recommendation and it certainly lived up to expectations. We were a party of five and each of us felt the same, both about the food and the setting - amazing. The building is a converted farm house, with a beautiful outdoor dining area. Well worth a visit.

My family took me here for my birthday on a brief trip to the Algarve, of which we come to often and have for a number of years although this was our first visit to this restaurant. It will now be one of many visits I hope as it was simply superb. We arrived slightly late as the taxi driver... More

We spend several weeks in the Algarve each year, and no visit would be complete without a meal at this delightful restaurant. Helma & Vincent make every guest feel special, & Vincent's cooking is certainly special. It's a lovely restaurant, rustic yet stylish, with no trace of stuffiness. The food never disappoints, whether it's the Sunday roast, taken in the... More

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
