Tucked away and may be difficult to find but worth the effort. A simple out door terrace awaits and a friendly Dutch welcome. The food is just great and beautifully presented. I tried the fresh pasta with shrimps which was perfect and the followed by Duck and finished with Traditional Dutch Apple, Raisins & Black Pepper Pie served with Custard... More

We discovered le Marquis on our last night in Portugal - wish we had found it sooner. Excellent food using local ingredients, beautifully presented. Staff were extremely friendly, made us feel very welcome, and service was discrete but attentive. Would recommend without hesitation.

Having been favourably impressed by our first visit we made a second visit to finish off our holiday. On both occasions we received a very friendly welcome from a smiling and attentive waitress who looked after our table well for the evenings. There was a good choice from the rather limited Menu but each dish we selected was superbly presented,... More

Went for dinner during our summer holiday, based on the Tripadvisor ratings. The night we went, there were only 4 guests, but our original booking was cancelled because the restaurant was full. We were not disappointed and liked the food, the setting and the explanation of the Dutch owner. The food was very nice: sea bass, BBQ Ribs (mmmmmmm). The... More

A bit out of Faro, near Loulé, this restaurant is a bit hidden. Well known by British 'locals'. Friendly service. Excellent food and wine.

Wanted somewhere a little bit special but local to take visiting friends. Le Marquis had been recommended and we were not disappointed. The weather was terrible so we had to sit inside and there were only 2 other tables occupied so it was quiet but the greeting by the owner was warm and welcoming. We all chose from the set... More

We received a very friendly welcome from a smiling waitress who looked after our table for the evening continuing with warm professional service. We chose from the 31 euro menu for 3 courses & each course was well balanced, cooked & presented. The goats cheese apple & beetroot salad was fresh & a delight to eat, salmon for mains, perfectly...

We had a marvelous experience eating at The Marquis with friends. And this was not the first time, actually it was the 4th time we went there. Great dishes, great atmosphere and great wines... If you want the best, there it is!

We had heard good things about this restaurant and we booked for a Friday night in August expecteding the place to be packed. The drive up there is lovely with some amazing views as you drive up the mountain. We got to there and the restaurant was empty, and we stood at reception for a while before having to call... More
