We have eaten here a few times since they took over the Booths the supermarket building, and the food has always been okay. The service has always been a bit hit and miss but tonight it went to a new LOW level. After waiting to be acknowledged at the "wait here to be seated" area we were taken to our... More

The food was of the quality you would expect from a greasy spoon cafe or a stall on the promenade - borderline sh@t. The garlic bread was one of the most salty i have ever had the misfortune to order, and I doubt if the fillet steak was what it said on the tin ! All in all a crap... More

I was recommended this restaurant by the owners of the BandB we were staying in. It is not far from the pleasure beach. The food was really lovely and the early bird offer was unbelievably good value. It was £9.95 for 2 courses and a drink. Starters and mains were top notch!!! The drinks were lovely and wine was cheap... More

I was giving up hope of eating out within Blackpool, as it never satisfied me. I thought id try San Marcos and im glad i did. Very well mannered and polite staff, all with a great knowledge of what's available. No hassle and a great calm atmosphere. The staff made it obvious they were on hand to deal with any... More

Had a lovely meal with my wife. Food I'd good without being exceptional. Live music until 9 kept the mood light. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Would recommend if you are south of the pleasure beech and don't fancy a trip back into town.

I work for a big organisation in Blackpool. We have monthly volunteer socials. We had booked to go to San Marcos weeks in advance and the lovely guy I spoke to gave us an early bird special on a Saturday night to thank the volunteers for all they did within the community. On the eve of the do, I rang... More

Been here many times but never again. Myself and a few friends been for a meal tonight and it was awful. Four of the meals were wrong, one meal was fish pie with very little fish in it the others were just ok. We were never even asked if we required desserts or coffees. Just felt like we were an...
