Very good food --- very good prices at early bird! Wide selection of appetizers --- large enough to share. The salmon was 'to die for'!

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.

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

This place may not have been the best visited whilst on Marco but it was certainly an enjoyable evening. The service was friendly and efficient presenting good well presented food. I had lamb which was cooked exactly as requested. Location is great in Old Marco. Very happy to recommend and will certainly go again. Thank you for a very good... 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
