We are a family run business and our staff will do their utmost to ensure an enjoyable visit each and every time. We play relaxing music ranging from the 70's, 80's and today's hits. Every Friday we have a fish, chips & mushy pea night with karaoke... As for sport we will do our best to screen all the top sporting action in the "Mount gay" Lounge.

“Amazing King Fish and Mahi Mahi...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Make a left out from the Crane Beach Resort, go 200 feet or so, and it'll be there on your right side, a very quick commute (feel free to walk if you like!). I thought it to be better then the both the Zen restaurant and Italian restaurant on the actual Crane compound, as far as I am concerned, and I wasn't alone in thinking this as it was the consensus of our group of 4.

I came here (The sign says "The Crane Palms" but it has been renamed Marco Polo's) with my girlfriend and my folks to this quiet little hidden gem. The couple that owns the place were really friendly and the fish was fresh fresh fresh, even had the burger 1 night... was craving beef, but I certainly recommend the King Fish or Mahi Mahi mmhmmmm ;). Prices were very reasonable and the best eats in the vicinity. Casual clothing, laid back atmosphere, definitely a must visit.

“Simply Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

lLocated just across the street from The Crane Resort in Barbados, proprietors Marc and Sally have.created a great bar and restaurant which combines relaxed Bajan hospitality with quality fresh local food (+ heat steaks etc) at unbeatable value! If you like Shakers on the south you'll love Crane Palms (soon to be renamed Marco Polos) in the East. Our group had delicious fresh fish and Juicy Sirloin steaks here last night - thanks for spoiling us Marc and Sally!

“Go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Don't let a name change scare you off. It was our first time to Barbados and we stayed at the Crane. Marco Polo is within walking distance of the hotel and one of the few non reservation restaurants nearby at night. The food was really good and Sally was very welcoming!

We went for Friday fish and chip night . We were 17 guests and we had lots of bottles of wine and assorted drinks,fish and chips and it was very reasonable. There was a D.J. With karaoke lots of fun!
The hosts Mark and Sally and the staff did an excellent job.
Would recommend this spot to tourists and locals alike.
