Friendly and relaxed.

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...

Just returned from our Wedding & 2 week holiday in Alvor. Had many lovely meals and drinks at Marcos. Mark, Jackie and Julie made us all so welcome and even helped out with some last minute wedding details. The food is really tasty and the service is excellent. Anyone visiting Alvor should call in. We will definitely be returning.

We visited here a group (11) in total on Father's Day for the Sunday roast, service was excellent and so was the roast beef dinner with the home made gravy. Puddings are very nice also! High chair available and the staff are very friendly and helpful
