“Fantastic Atmosphere and Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We went to the Le Marquis a couple of weeks ago with some friends. The open fire was roaring away and we sat in the lovely restaurant which was full of character and was very comfortable. The hosts were very attentive, the food was served promptly and tasted delicious. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very romantic and we would have no hesitation in recommending this special place to any of our friends or contacts. Well worth the money especially for a special occasion. You will definitely not be disappointed.

“Refined dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

A little off the beaten track, but well worth a detour.. Vincent and Helma are Dutch, but make a great team serving the finest food in the area. Helma is maitre d and Vincent does the disinctive, French style catering. Sunday lunches are a great attraction - usually a full house, with succulent roast beef and yorkshire pudding, roast lamb or pork also, cooked to perfection. All served with a good assortment of fresh vegetables.Take the road to Gorjões out of Santa Barbara and just in front of the "Gorljões" sign, turn right,, up the hill. Restairant parking is 2nd right. Tel 289 992 018.

“Lovely restaurant! Great food and atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

Second time we celebrated my father's birthday here. It is a very cosy beautiful restaurant.

The food & wine is very good. Love the delicate way everything is presented. Picture perfect plates!

Will be back as soon as I can, especially now they also serve very reasonably priced 2/3 course menus.

Loved the cake Erwin made as a gift for my father!

“Le Marquis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

This is a good and adventurous restaurant for the hills of the Algarve, and it manages to produce good quality food, local wherever possible, and very professionally served. It is imaginitive without being too much so, and the owners really take an interest in what you eat. I like the balance of flavouring to enhance not overpower, and they understand about the freshness and texture of fish - which can so easily be overcooked and flavourless in a restaurant. Good atmosphere; a fire in winter and a beautiful terrace in summer -highly recommended.
