Sisters 40th birthday

There was 28 of us that went, and we all got our food at the same time, I've found in most places with big party's they struggle. Food was lovely, staff very friendly and helpful, and good price.

Had another excellent meal on Sunday at San Marcos. Food and service is always first class and we have used this restaurant since it first opened in Highfield Road around 16 years ago and never once had a complaint. It's also one of the few places you can visit on a quiet midweek evening and find it has sufficient people... More

Originally we booked the Italian over the road but they had overbooked and had a waiting time of 1 hour. We stumbled across this little Italian over the road and was more than happy with our find! The food was gorgeous, staff where lovely very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was brilliant. Best food Italian food we have tasted!

The food was average on this very quiet night. I know some of my table were disappointed with their food but I can't speak for them. What bothered me was the lack of service. There were only two large tables, we were a table of 10, there were many staff but all stood on a line chatting and cleaning cutlery.... More

I've not visited San Marcos for years but I went with the family for a birthday celebration. I thought it had started to look a little tired to be honest, we booked our table for 6.30 but weren't seated until almost 7pm. We visited on a Tuesday, it wasn't particularly busy so I'd have expected to be seated on time.... More

My wife and I found this restaurant by chance we enjoyed the food and service so much we went back the night after. Unfortunately our second visit was let down when I visited the toilet and was met by vomit all over the floor not a sight that you need to see In a eating establishment.

I'm sorry to hear this. We inspect out toilets on a regular basis during service . As soon as you told the waiter it was cleaned immediately . Unfortunetely we cannot monitor every customer that use the toilets . To say we lack hygiene is incorrect and an unfair comment as take our hygiene very seriously . I have spoken... More
