We gave the airport taxi driver the address and the nearest road it intersects with, but he couldn't find the restaurant. I double checked the street numbers. We were in the correct area as I recognised other restaurants. A mystery!

Marques is a very good portuguese restaurant. Codfish and sea food are the specialities. Try "lagareiro" codfish and octopus. Portuguese wine options are one of the best in town. It is very difficult to find a parking lot on busy days.
