We visited the restaurant last Friday and was very impressed by the quality of the service. We arrived at around 6pm and within half an hour the restaurant was almost full . I ordered the Tornedos Rossini steak. I can honestly say it was the best steak I have tasted in years. My wife ordered the Surf and Turf and... More

We had the early bird menu, which, I thought was good value, it is what it is and reasonably priced. The food was ok and I always usually like the ambience in there. We ordered drinks and said we would have the early bird complimentary drink to start, then a bottle of Sparkly with our meal. The waitress noted down... More

Me and my partner visited San Marcos whilst on a weekend break from London, as soon as we walked in we felt unwelcome. The staff were just stood at the bar area and nobody came to greet us, finally when we got the attention of a older waiter he was very rude and asked us if we had booked, which... More

Having been a fairly regular customer for years it's always been a cheap ish cheerful place ideal for last minute bookings. However the last few times I've noticed it's not quite as reasonable the food is just ok and I don't feel the price is appropriate. I had chicken goujons to start and these were £8 for 3 small strips... More

In Blackpool meeting up with friends, asked the barman in our hotel if there were any decent restaurants close by and thus found by chance San Marcos. Super food, relaxed atmosphere and good value for money. Service a little bit sloppy (wrong wine brought to the table, forgot a dessert) but always resolved without fuss.
