although we always try and dine seaside we couldn't resist trying due to reviews. We were not disappointed, the food was incredible. Our table had the ceviche, tuna tartar, spring rolls, beet salad, seared tuna, and macadamia crusted snapper. Every single dish was perfection. Prices were very reasonable for the quality. Will be sure to put on our list of... More

Perhaps our tenth visit over the years. Not as crowded as in the past. However the food is delicious and nicely plated and the standard of service remains high We started with Caesar salad and beet salad. Both very tasty. My wife had the salmon and I had the fish of the day. Each a margarita and one wine. Everything... More

Had dinner with my wife and the service was only out-matched by the awesome uniquely prepared foods. Luus was a terrific waiter and the soup, salad and entrees, were truly unique and amazing. Jan has got a special place here!

Quite a bit more expensive than other places nearby but worth it. Lovely atmosphere, excellent service, fabulous food (I do recommend however to tell the waiter how you want your pork chop - I didn't and it came rare - medium would be have been better - it was whisked away and returned that way!)

I have visited this restaurant many times and I am always blown away. I highly recommend the New Zealand rack of lamb that is flown in directly every week! The seafood i always amazing and incredibly fresh. The mango margarita is unreal. Mark's coffee for desert is a must!!!!

Have heard good things over the years, finally went and was not disappointed. From the moment you walk in you know you are at a special place. My only suggestion would be a little rice or something with the entrees. Not a complaint just a preference.

We've been coming to Bucerias for years and years. Mark's Bar and Grill is always one of our "must go" places. Our friends, my wife and I decided to pretend we were at a Tapas Bar and decided we'd share everything we ordered. 4 appy's and 4 main courses later, and we had all tried 8 different items. We all...

This restaurant is not on the beach but on one of the side streets near the beach. The food is fantastic no matter what you order. I usually get the pork chop, delicious!! My wife likes fish and its always fresh and well prepared. This is not a typical Mexican place, very Continental in atmosphere. This is one of 3... More

Enjoyed two evening meals at Mark's on our recent visit to Bucerias. The pork chop entree was absolutely delicious! The cheesecake was beautifully presented with a sugar decoration. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals on both occasions. The service was outstanding and we loved the ambiance. The singers that approached the table are a nice touch but rather expensive...
