Marks is a beautiful restaraunt in the Dorado zone of Bucerias. It's on a quiet street just off the beach. The restaraunt is open and airy and the staff is plentiful and very willing to make your experience enjoyable. The menu is not traditional Mexican fair, or even Mexican versions of Italian food, but rather inventive twists on Italian food... More

Mark's came recommended to us. The ambiance was nice and the service was quite good but my goodness, it was EXPENSIVE. The margaritas (Especial & de la Casa) were boring. The food was enjoyed by my dining partners but I only ate most of my lobster & leek ravioli to be polite. I am NOT a picky eater but I... More

We like most everything on Mark's menu. Tonight we celebrated our 44th anniversary with friends at Mark's. We are here for 9 weeks and without a doubt the San Blas Shrimp was The best Shrimp meal we had this year. The spinach salad was cold, crisp and excellent, the rack of lamb medium rare was perfectly cooked, fab chocolate cake... More

Everything was perfect for this special day of the year. From the ambience to the six course dinner, we loved every minute. Can't wait to see Jan's menu for next year.

We go there once a year when we stay in Nuevo - it is worth the cab ride. Recommend getting a reservation. We almost didn't get in. Food and service is consistently good.

Our first visit to Mark's in about a year and we found it to be excellent. The service was good and the food was really delicious. Some of our group's rave reviews were for panko crusted oysters, ceviche, red snapper and filet of beef. Desserts of chocolate brownie sundae and coconut ice cream with Chili brittle were a big hit.... More

Our last night in Bucerias, we stopped in to a full restaurant. Our friends had eaten here often over several years. We sat at the bar. Even though it was a very busy night, we were able to order beverages right away. It was fun watching the busy bartenders work, one who had been there for several years. The owner... More

Not sure what's going on here but not as good as we remembered from previous visit last year. Food and service good but not excellent and seemed pricey.

We checked this place out in the afternoon as we were looking for somewhere special to spend our last evening in Mexico. We liked what we saw and booked a table for the evening. Was amazed when we got there at 19:00 to find the place was packed. That speak volumnes. Our dinner and choice of wine was excellent and... More
