Another wonderful meal at Marks. Can't come to Nuevo without making a trip to Bucerias for a dinner or two. Hugo was our waiter this time and did an excellent job. Their wine list is excellent and reasonably priced. My date has Pasta with black Pesto and I had a Caesar salad and the appetizer, Tuna 2 ways. Everything was... More

Mark's has an elegant but yet very upbeat and modern setting. Great service, food is delicious and drinks were well made. The portions of the plates is a bit small. If you have a big appetite like mine, you do need appetizer, dinner and dessert. That would be my only complaint, it is also not ultra expensive but its priced... More

The food was outstanding, the service friendly, and Mark is delightful. Really enjoyed our dinner here. I had lobster raviolis and they were delicious. Nice cocktail and wine selection. Ambiance was inviting, tropical and the resident cat was cute. There were guitar players strolling thru, offering to play your request. They were very good, well worth a tip. A place... More

Mark's Bar and Grill is a restaurant not to be missed while on vacation. The food is excellent and the service and atmosphere are fabulous. Prices are subjective...I've read many reviews saying prices are high. Mark's prices are very fair...quality ingredients and large portions. I don't expect to pay taco stand prices for quality food in a nice atmosphere with... More

Service poor and not as before, food over prepared and seemed not as before, meat cooked médium well instead of medium rare. Not the heathiest food on a warm summer night. Will try again with friends next winter and see if it was just an off experience as past visits, it seemed more of a positive experience.

We happened upon this place after our disappointing visit to Rosa Mexicana in the same area. We went back the last night of our trip and wish we had discovered it sooner. The food was the best we had on the trip and the drinks were great as well. Great atmosphere and service. It will be my first choice when... More
