“Nice every time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

I have been several times to San Marco's, almost every time I go to Blackpool. The food is very good, the atmosphere is great, especially on Tuesdays when there is a live singer. This is really one of my favourite restaurant in Blackpool.

“Meal for Two”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

We both really enjoyed it here on saturday evening. The atmosphere was great, the waiters were very smart and helpful and the food was delicious. We couldn't think of anywhere nicer to eater in Blackpool and were glad with our choice. We will definitely go back again.

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Visited the original San Marcos before it moved to bigger premises many times and as often happens the new restaurant expands and loses that personal touch and the meals not quite the same when you first experienced them, although the facilities are much better and the atmosphere more livelier and still maintains a good quality of food and service. I need to visit again soon to experience it.

“Awesome atmosphere, attentive service, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

I've eaten at San Marco's countless times and I must say they always got it right. Soon as you walk in from the Blackpool chill you are welcomed with the coziest ambient. It's got that massive sofa by the bar and tables of all sizes, even quieter ones at the back if you're on a date night. The kitchen is open so the smell of the food being cooked is captivating and you don't wait long before you are served with a delicious meal. I particularly like the entertainment in San Marco's, they have pretty good local bands on certain nights so reserve a table close to the stage and you'll get a free show during your meal too! A restaurant with a bonus, love it!

“Gone massively downhill and overpriced”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

San Marcos sparked the revolution in south shore dining. But the owners have now taken less involved roles and it shows. The Italian guy they have left running it is awful, he has no personality and a real attitude problem. plus the food prices have gone up to the point that it is very overpriced and you can get much better food and service elsewhere for much less money
