I had the sea bass, which was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. My husband had the mahi mahi, which was a little dry. The service was good, not excellent. The restaurant itself appears old and may be in need of a little updating. But overall we enjoyed having dinner here.

My wife and I just visited this quaint little restaurant in Marco Island, FL on our vacation and were blown away! First of all, you walk in and are greeted immediately by a warm hostess. We made reservations for 7:45 pm. Even though the outside area looked to be closed, our waiter to be (Scott) said we could eat outside... More

In August 2014 our family visited Marco Island and was pleased to dine at Café de Marco! The restaurant is quaint with an intimate setting. We had a 5:00 reservation and were happy to be there early to enjoy the quiet place before the crowd came in. They have early bird specials. I ordered the salmon with dill sauce. It... More

My wife and I had a terrific dining experience here in July 2013, and I wrote a TA review titled "Wow, Far Exceeded our Expectations!" when we got home. So on our return vacation this summer, we HAD to go back for another visit. And once again, the entire experience was over the top. The dining room has been remodeled... More

I can not stop thinking about how amazing my sole fish tasted. The best fish I have had in Naples in the 2 years we lived here. We went with a group of 50 so we had a limited menu but let me tell you, I will go back. I tend to agree with some of the other reviews about... More

This restaurant has delicious sea food/meats that are cooked to perfection and the service is incredible! Despite the fact that this restaurant is a tad bit more expensive than most other restaurants I have been to, it is definitely worth treating yourself to this fantastic food on the island.

Had a FANTASTIC dinner: scallops with prawns!!! Along with the lobster bisque. My husband had the macadamian encrusted cobia along with the eggplant appetizer. The desserts all sounded excellent however we diid not have any more room. Definitely going back!!!! We HIGHLY recommend having dinner at Cafe De Marco!!!! Ask for Marty, he was an excellent server.
