“Fresh Delicious Mideast Delicacies - Lunch or Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

The only thing that would make Markos more perfect... would be if it were on the oceanfront with outdoor seating.

Well, not really... because then their rent and prices would double.

They are perfect where they are, just 1.5 blocks from the Narragansett Ocean Wall.

Lunch or dinner are both great gastronomic experiences here though for dinner, if you like, you can enhance your experience by taking a nice wine or beer 6-pack. They have the glasses and stemware.

Seating is limited, so you have to be strategic in terms of when you go. In peak summer, you may not find a table at the time you want to go.

But the food... is fab.

A good start is the vegetarian appetizer platter for 2 or 4. You get a really nice combo of tabbouleh, homos, baba ghanouj, felafel, great sliced veggies, and a generous basket of wedges of flat bread.

When I go, I usually follow up the appetizer platter with some great skewered kabobs: lamb, chicken (couple of different marinades), shrimp and more are on offer. These are great with rice, and they also have good bean dishes for sides or for main courses if you like. There are many other great dishes, and you probably would hit the mark with any choice. They have soups and stews also.

At lunch, you can have wraps with the same kabobs, or felafel, or other fillings. The homemade lemonade goes well with these dishes during lunch.

You can round out your meal with a piece of delish baklava and, if you like, some mint tea or arabic coffee.

The owner and the staff are friendly - this is just a great meal experience. No fancy decor (it's nice, but not opulent).... just good food.

“Back every year, love it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011 via mobile

We've been coming here for the past 6 years, and Markos is the place we eat more meals from than any other restaurant. Even my ridiculously picky 19 yr old is starting to like the falafel, salad and hummus. My wife and I love the gyros, falafel, veg appetizer samplers, and the fries are awesome. We always do take out, as our house is 2 blocks away; give them a good 35+ minutes for a phone order on a busy Saturday. Overall, good fresh food, good portions, interesting flavors, just love it. Didn't give them max ratings due mainly to pricey (but very tasty) kebabs.

“Small, Near East restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2009

Have eaten at Markos several times this winter and have always had a good meal. Have introduced friends to this establishment and they also have been very pleased with their dining experience. Nice to be able to BYOB and have a decent meal without breaking the bank!! Wraps are great and a generous size, starters wonderful (especially the vegetarian sampler) and kabobs delicious. Can get very busy on summer nights with a line out the door.......go early or go for lunch!

“Very good - call it in "to go" and eat at the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2008

Great food, great flavor, good people working here. Call it in to go (takes a while) and eat at the beach. The falafel is fabulous and the portions are generous. Worth each penny.
