Four of us went to Mark's and it's a very good Bar and Grill. The food was good and the service was good. We all enjoyed all our meals. A jug of sangrias is rather pricy but delicious. We had their desert and we oh my goodness Mark knows desert! Our waiter was excellent and it was a great night.

Bucerías history: Long time ago, the only way to access it was through sea or hills (there was no highway), but people still went and dove to get from there oysters and lobster. (Bucerías = Bucear = DIVE in english) According to my husband, the oysters he had are one of the best he's ever had! I had the lobster... More

I dined at Marks again after 4 years. I am very pleased to say that nothing had changed, in fact if anthing it had had got better, which I never expected. Upon arrival I was greated by a very friendly hostess who seated us straight away at a great table on the terrace. Our waiter was also very friendly and... More

On holiday with my husband and another couple and decided to try Mark's as it looked so nice. Our Server was very pleasant and knowledgeable and 3 of us had the snapper and one had steak. We had drinks and wine and shared a dessert and we all agreed it was very good. The kicker came when we got the... More

We were staying in the Gringo Gulch area of Puerto Vallarta and looking for an adventure. It was late in the season. So whale watching had to wait until next year. My neighbor recommended Mark's Bar and Grill in Bucerias and we decided to go. The taxi trip took a lot longer than expected and our driver had trouble finding... More

We choose to eat at Mark's on a Thursday night because his restaurant is right in the middle of the Thursday night Artwalk in Bucerias. Mark's is definitely a little upscale from most of the other Bucerias choices and, therefore, a little pricier but still a good value for the money. You can choose to sit outside in the fresh...

It was easy to see why Mark's is rated so high. From our appetizers of spring rolls to our desserts, everything was great. I personally had the best beef filet since we've been in the area and our seafood entrees were delicious. I give it the highest of ratings, dine there is possible.

We enjoyed a lovely meal beautifully presented. The menu was unique in its selection with a touch of Asia. The wine selection was impressive but a bit pricey. We didn't have room for dessert but wish we did because they looked amazing.
