Old decor, a weird smell and heavy feeling. Food heavy and not as fresh as possible. Capraese salad had grocery tomatoes in chuncks, no basil,roasted peppers and a dressing that tasted bottled. Clams oregano had more bread crumbs than anything else. Not worth the time or money

Okay so this is a pricey place. Still, you get what you pay for. If you are ready to splurge or celebrate a momentous occasion, then Cafe de Marco is a great place for seafood. It is in the "Olde Marco Island Village" area of Marco Island. Not too hard to find, but it is off the main drag. The... More

My Wife got me a gift card for Café De Marco for my Birthday on hearing glowing reviews from our local friends. I am a regular at Joe's Hideout across the street and have seen the Café packed during the peak season, so was always curious to see whether the hype lived up to it's billing. I can absolutely say...

What a strange place , a sort of prefab building ,church or hall like with purple carpet and pale green walls . Some stained glass inside makes it feel like a chapel also . Fortunately it was full I would hate to dine there when it was empty ! However the food is good . Try and avoid over complicated... More

Just had a fabulous dinner from fellow Jersey'an Sandy Franchini. As a Jersey resident, we are very picky about our food. Cafe DeMarco lives up to our Jersey standards. The wine was delicious, the Lobster Bisque was filled with lobster, creamy and decadent. I had the Grouper Francaise that was delicious and the filet mignon with puff pastry, was my... More

We have been visiting Marco Island for over 25 years and have dined here every year. We just had the best dinner in Marco/Naples ever here tonight. The food and service was outstanding. The difference from last year was unbelievable. We can tell that there is a renewed enthusiasm for the business. Joe was our waiter who was fantastic and... More

The hotel set up this diner and a car was sent for us which was nice touch. We arrive and were less than impressed with the facility. The onside not much better but we were here for the food not ambiance. Go here with that thought in mind and you will have one of the best meals in fla. From... More

We tried cafe de marco on the recommendation of a guest at our hotel. My husband and I thought the food was delicious. The rolls were the best we have had on the island, the homemade salad dressing was light and flavorful. Then came our entree. I had the snapper and my husband the grouper. The waitress, Christine, was very... More
