We ate here twice whilst in Alvor recently; once for breakfast and once for lunch - both great experiences - my tuna jacket potato with dressed side salad was a delight to both the eyes and the taste buds. Excellent value for money too - it is at the back of the Dunas complex - a bit hidden but definitely... More

There are a few different bars and restaurants on the Dunas complex and Marco's is just what you need when you want a taste of home. We would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a good Sunday lunch. They are also open for English breakfasts but we didn't try one.

Used this cafe for the odd breakfast and regular lunches. Best value for money in the Dunas complex, with friendly staff.

I had visited Marco's in 2013 and had enjoyed a few snacks and drinks! During my recent stay in Alvor, 23rd July to 30th July, I frequented Marcos Bistro on several occasions and I can honestly say that the quality of food was as good as I have tasted anywhere in the world, that includes the U.S.A. and a Mediterranean...

This is our third year running visiting this restaurant. We cannot recommend the place high enough. Marco made sure there was always something like chicken and mash or steak pie and mash for our 1 year old at night and made sure there was an abundance of chicken nuggets for our 5 year old on offer at all times.

Jackie & Marco are the most friendliest people we have... More
