Chef João Marrieros creates 11 individual courses with AMAZING flavours for 75 Euros per person. With a wine list to compliment at very reasonable prices. If you want to celebrate? This is THE place to come. It is not surprising that you may have to...wait up to a month for a reservation. BUT it is worth the wait. Loki might just be THE BEST RESTAURANT IN PORTUGAL.More

Dear João, we are now almost 2 weeks back in The Netherlands and it is also 2 weeks ago that we enjoyed a very special and highly memorable dinner in your cosy restaurant! We speak highly about you and your cooking skills with our friends,...as well as the very special moments we shared with you about our experiences in life! Your story is a very remarkable one and I dare to say you may be very proud of what you have achieved! Your mom’s advice is probably one of the best she could have given: make your passion your work! The passion you have shown to us that evening about the Algarve, its food and wines was second to none, what an amazing experience! We wish to thank you once again for the beautiful culinary journey and making us part of your great talent! It goes without saying that next time we are in Portugal it will be our utmost pleasure to visit you again; maybe in your new location! Kindest regards, Erik and EllenMore

You can trust all the other reviews - there's not much I can add! Loki is a special place. Don't miss out, but book early. The restaurant is small so that Joao is able to attend to each diner personally.

We had an incredible 11 course meal at Loki. The chef personally served us and his knowledge and passion for the ingredients used was fantastic (he had even scuba dived to collect the seaweed served!). He explained how all the ingredients used were local and...where he was not able to source the ingredient locally, how he had found creative solutions to alternatives.More

What an experience, intimate setting, sustainable, conscious food. Each course tastier than the next. Exciting food. Great wine selection. Literally nothing more you could ever ask for in a dining experience.

This is a new but in our opinion the best restaurant in the Algarve. Fine dining in a super cosy setting. Expensive, but worth the price, you get what you pay for. This place should get a star. A pleasant surprise when you realise Loki...serves and cooks everything himself. Every dish was surprising and top notch. Interesting wine pairing too. Loki has good stories to tell as well with every dish or pairing. We were the only ones in the restaurant so felt like we had a personal chef.More

We went for a lovely dinner yesterday with my boyfriend to Loki. The chef and owner João offers and excellent service and hospitality. Not only that, he is also an fantastic chef. He offers a 11 plate surprise menu, with fresh ingredients from the nearby...areas, so each day the menu changes. Every plate has its own beautiful and interesting story, which made the dinner experience really unique. The restaurant is small and very cozy, if you are lucky you might have the whole restaurant just for yourselves, like we had. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough, if you have the posibility to visit João and his restaurant - do it! Remember to book in advance due to that the restaurant is small and quite popular, he answers very quickly on Facebook as well for bookings.More

Tucked away up a side street, this little restaurant provides an amazing culinary experience. Joao is a truly dedicated chef, who embraces his locally sourced products, mixes them with local history, and his early experiences, and creates wonderful dishes with great depth of flavour. He...deserves to succeed, and I can wholeheartedly recommend a visit. Thank you for a wonderful evening Joao.More

This is a really fabulous restaurant!! We were blown away by the quality and thoughtfulness of each dish. Everything was delicious and Chef João was the most welcoming of hosts. It was one of the best meals we’ve had in a very long time. We’ll...most certainly be back!More
