Ate here for breakfast one morning while at the resort. Food was average, yet pricey. Definitely paying for the location!

We are sorry to hear that you were not entirely satisfied. Marco Beach Ocean Resort strives to exceed expectations and make every interaction with our property a valuable one. Breakfast and lunch, though on the terrace of Sale E Pepe, is entirely different than the restaurant fine dining in the evening. The daytime menu is meant to offer something quick,... More

for the prices charged, we expected more. My sea bass was thin and over cooked. Our waitress did not explain the menu well, and the tira misu was just ok.

This was an elegant dining experience. This is an expensive restaurant but the ambiance and food make it worth it. The sunset views are extraordinary. The Branzino, a Imported fish from Greece was grilled to perfection. The veal cutlet was also prepared perfectly. Our waiter Sean was friendly and attentive. The entire experience was wonderful, but at the price it... More

Food was great, slightly overpriced. We had a reservation for 515 showed up at 5 and was told we couldn't be seated until 515 and it was happy hour so we went to the bar. On the way to the bar the hostess reminded us that our reservation was for 515 so to enjoy our drink for 15 minutes but... More

We liked the excellent service, extensive wine list, interesting menu, and well prepared food. We suggest avoiding the evenings when there is a wedding or you may be subject to noise.

We had heard good things about the sunset view so decided to go. While the view is nice the food I was a little surprised by. We wanted bolognese, a true italian kind with veal, pork, etc. Their bolognese is just ground beef. It tasted more like regular spaghetti meat sauce. You could not get the type of noodle you... More

We decided the venue was a bit 'corporate' and a bit stuffy at first. But actually the service was friendly and good. There wasn't a lot of choice on the menu. But we made great choices and it was delicious. We ate on a covered terrace outside and it was warm and had a nice atmosphere. We missed the sunset... More

We had always heard that dining on the terrace was spectacular. The restaurant is beautiful and the service is top notch. We did enjoy watching the sunset while dining. The menu items are of a high quality; however, there are not many to choose from. I ordered a pasta special, which was not on the menu, and ended up costing... More

While the food is good the price tag is too high. The service is very slow and the are constantly trying to up-sell you on everything. It's as if the waiter got extra "commission" on our bill. They give themselves 18 pct gratuity for a table of 2. Shorted themselves we always give 20 pct.
