Mark's is great. FOOD is delicious & I found it can be served quickly if nicely requested. Seared Tuna salad was a crowd favourite. LOCATION is easy to access, especially when leaving as the Taxi stand is right out the door. Inside is quite large and can accommodate a large amount of people. The courtyard had a tent set-up during... More

We really enjoyed this place. Hugo, our server was very good and the food was presented well and tasted fresh. My tomato and goat cheese salad could have more goat cheese, it was just a small amount. Otherwise, everything was terrific!

We hadn't been to bucerias before and heard it was a great small town so decided to venture out on a rainy evening. We made reservations which I strongly suggest. Dinner was great. Had the pork chop. Service was also great and the drinks and wine were top notch. Mark is there helping run the show. Very nice man. Dessert... More

Lovely patio, nice waiters. Two of us had the filet, very nice. I also had the tomato, goat cheese salad. Mostly tomato, but delicious. My wife loved the gazpacho soup, not tomato based but very nice. She had the snapper special, nice. Lots of choice on the menu (not really Mexican), for deserts, for cocktails and for wine. Clean and... More

Returned to Mark's after a two year absence to find that the food is as good if not better than before. I always have the beet salad, but tried the masala Spiced chicken roll and it was the best. Beautiful presentation great flavors. For main I had the San Blas shrimp as I previously always had the Macademia crusted snapper,... More

One of our favorite places in the PV area. The drinks are cold and the food is hot, with many Mexican specialities to choose from. The atmosphere is relaxed and the service is always excellent. Also love the little pottery shop attached to the restaurant.

We have enjoyed Mark's on many trips to PV, always making this a destination for dinner. The menu is a fusion of Mediterranean meets Mexico, and is hands-down, the finest we have eaten in years of travel to this area. This year we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and chose Mark's for our big night out. The service was... More

We tried this restaurant last week and returned again last night because it was such a great dinner. Whether vegetarian or carnivore, there is something delicious for everyone. The staff are friendly and had no problems keeping up with larger group (we were table of 8). I have a dairy allergy and couldn't sample but others in our party raved... More

We have never been disappointed at Mark's and dinner tonight, on a showery evening, was no exception. My wife and I shared their incredible housemate gnocchi as an appetizer and followed it up with the San Blas Shrimp and the Pan Seared Tuna. Including a bottle of Malbec, it was all perfect. The service, as usual, was absolutely the best.... More
