“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

It's nothing special food adequate but not that authentic, I cook better italian at home, still the decor is nice staff friendly, but nothing to write home about.

“amazing food and such reasonable prices!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

it was my first time to Marco Polo last week, we went last minute on Friday evening but this wasnta problem to staff, the waitress seated us and staff were so pleasent. We ordered from the Al A Carte Menu and the starters were served promptly! Delicious potato skins, bruschetta and mixed olives with Feta. On to the mains, i was the fussy one of the three of us and asked if i could add chicken to my Arribeita pasta, this wasnt a problem and my it was delicious! All dishes were cooked to perfection and were so fresh! Safe to say we will be returning to Marco Polo when we are in the area, for it has outstanding food and service!

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We have only came here just the once as we used to live around the corner, we went when they had a special meal deal a 3 course for about £5.95, the food was good and well worth the money.

“:0( DISSAPOINTED :0(”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

Went on a saturday night in couples got straight in and seated,got put next to a large table of women on a leaving party so could not even hear yourself think never mind hold a conversation.Lighting in the room was poor to dark even the tea lights were poor as kept getting old ones with very little time left on them, three later eventually got a new one. As couples we shared a starter pate and potato skins which you really can't get wrong then mains my wife got the chicken with prawns only 3 prawns with a very rubbery chicken the rest got sirloin steak mine was terrible far to thick so hence wasnt cooked properly left 3 quarters of it complained but never got anything off the bill .The staff were friendly but they were rushed off there feet as appeared to be understaffed although for a saturday night not busy really,only reason for two stars is the cheese cake was good gone very down hill not be going back in a hurry.
