The best of the Market,everyday,with art,commitment and generosity! Restaurant well focused on the best the products have to offer. With a concept of sharing,in a young and relaxed environment. Allowing for an experience of the best recepies with ethnic influences, from North to South of the Country. Supported by an original and distinctive cocktail list and an exclusive wine cellar, the menus tell stories in a playful, interative and challenging way, modernizing the traditional. This is 'The Market' way!

Visited here tonight after spotting it on the strip and reading the reviews about the place. What can I say they are true! The food was unbievably good, fresh and cooked to perfection! I had the suckling pig croquettes for starters they where so good,...my partner had the prawns and I tried them they where gorgeous also. For the main I had the ribeye steak which is probably the best steak I've ever had. Every course was beautiful, it was an amazing experience and I will definatley be back in the future.More

We've had our dinner taken at this restaurant and I can say that it was by far the most beautiful restaurant with excellent services and the food was above my expectations! 😍It's located in the new town and it has a view from the top...that it's just amazing!! The waiters were so nice and they way they served us denoted their professionalism!! The prices are not too high,we've had the most expensive thing that was on the menu,"Grilled Octopus with mashed potatos and something else " and it cost @ £17 but you'll definitely see that the portions are big and they taste sooo good. I've also had a cocktail called "Market star" which was the best cocktail I've even had, I highly recommend you this one!😉😍More

I picked this place to propose my girlfriend! I cannot believe how welcome, friendly and supportive were the staff members! We had an amazing night, delicious food, and the best service provided. I would give them 7 starts if I could! Highly recommended!

We ended up here as a 3rd choice - our first 2 were either closed or fully booked, which we didn't realise! We decided on The Market somewhat hesitantly as it was on the strip; I had wanted a particularly nice restaurant as I was...due to propose following the meal! We had a lovely meal (I had the octopus and my partner the duck) in a lovely setting with brilliant service. The food was superb, expensive but well worth it for the quality and essentially saved my evening!More

Located at the bottom of the strip, this is a good dinner spot. The restaurant sells tasty well cooked food and has an extensive wine list to cover all budgets. The service was good and the food freshly prepared and very good quality. We had...the lamb and peri peri chicken and 2 of their excellent desserts to finish.More

This was our first time visiting this restaurant and it was the best meal Ive ever had. I recommend the burger and for dessert the sharing platter. All the staff were friendly and made the experience so enjoyable and made us laugh a lot. The...views from the restaurant also make it even more special and it is the best place we visited during our holiday. The cocktails were wonderful and staff are so attentive to your needs, a rare place. We can’t thank the staff at the The Market enough for making our final night in the Algarve so memorable, special thank you to the chef who served us our dessert. I couldn’t find a fault with this place.More

First of all it's a very pretty view and a nice looking restaurant. The staff is very attentive and friendly. In our five day stay in Algarve we went there twice in a row. The main dishes were great but the desserts were something else....The husband and I do not like pear and do not appreciate cinammon. We had a pear crumble with a cinammon ice cream that was recommended. It was amazing, just so good. We also had the chocolate mousse with fake honeycomb and salt and pepper which was also brilliant. Highly recommens. It is not cheap but it is worth it.More

Food and cocktails were incredible. Service was GREAT - if you need any advice or recommendations ask for Rita. She was fantastic. We will 100% return on our next trip, our favourite meal of the holiday!
