This is a lovely restaurant, cosy and warm in the winter months and with a beautiful shaded terrace during the summer. The food is exceptionally good and elegantly presented. Perfect for a family lunch on Sundays or for a quiet evening meal for two. A lovely ambience and very professional service

We return regularly for the wonderful, creative food of the talented Vincent. A varied tempting menu. This is the only restaurant I will eat duck as it is served tender and tasty. The ribs satisfy the most picky and unadventurously demanding father in law. But the chocolate dessert is outstanding! We will go back soon!

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.
