On our annual visit to faro, eating here is always a highlight! The food is as good as it gets, the couple running it are delightfully friendly and welcoming and the setting is perfect! There is no better way of spending a long holiday lunch time. No point in writing more, just go and try it yourselves...

One of the best restaurants in the Algarve. To be honest Chef Vicent sould have a Michelin Star or maybe two. It you like good food, it is the place to go!

One of the things I really like about this part of the Algarve is how many good restaurants there are to choose from. But, I have to say, I think Le Marquis is the best of the lot. Chef Vincent really knows how to cook and you are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome. It's a little off the beaten... More

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!
