“The best restrauant in Alvor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We went to Alvor Dunas hotel where there are quite a few restrauants in the complex, it wasn't till the second day that we found Marco's which is situated behind all the other places in the complex next to the pool.
From the begining Mark and Jackie made us feel extremely welcome. My little old mother has an unusual eating problem which makes it difficult to eat properly without choking, this makes her feel really embarrassed when eating out as she can only eat the tinniest of portions. Mark latched onto this straight away and sorted her meals out to her liking.
Jackie made sure we had agreat time there, and there was never a feeling that you were being pushed out of the door.
If you like a good breakfast go for the Mega breakfast it really fills you up for the start of the day. The other meal i had there was the sirloin steak, OMG what a meal it was fantastic never had a steak like it in all my life. Another must is the sunday lunch absolutely cracking.
Marco's opens at 09.30 in the morning, on our last night we explained to them that we would be leaving early in the morning so they made us all bacon sandwiches so we could have them before we left for the airport.
Food = Magnificent ( Best i have ever had)
Price = On a par with the rest of the restaurants
Service = Absolutely brilliant, very very friendly people.
Cleanliness = Excellent

“English Breakfast, English and Portuguese Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Marco and the team make you feel very welcome and provide great breakfasts and Sunday Roasts. My Portuguese Father-in-law and Mother-in-law enjoyed the Sunday Roasts as well plus the home baked desserts.

Had a Sunday roast here, food was good, very generous portion and staff were friendly despite the lady having sliced her finger open just a few hours previous.
