“nice place for a quick lunch”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Marc's describes itself as Mediterrean Cusine but inside the menu were many with Alsace in brackets written by the dishes. we went there for lunch very early and had a very pleasant meal and it filled up a bit by the time we left.
service was good and so was the price.
we will be back

“predictable”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

My friend and I ate here 2-3 times on our last trip, as we stayed down the street at 110 Main and it was close walking distance.

The food here is good and predictable/consistent. The staff was very nice. We sat inside but it looked like there was a nice patio for sitting out back would seems perfect provided a nice bottle of wine and agreeable weather.

Food pricing was good so it was a good option for a break from the other nearby restaurants.

“A definite revisit!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

We visited Marc's a number of times during an extended stay in the Winelands and we always had a great meal. Although we tried various meals on the menu, the steaks and pizzas were our favourites, always delicious! The atmosphere was friendly and the staff very helpful. We'll definitely be back hen we revisit next year.

“Good Setting, Average Food, Bad Service”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Being in the Hospitality Industry for almost 10 years, It's hard to find a decent restaurant in the Cape Winelands with good food and excellent service as well as a good setting for lunch and dinner.

Me and friends of mine went to have dinner at Marc's. When we arrived at our table the trouble started: un-ironed table cloths - one with burnt sigarette marks on it, dirty serviettes, dirty wine glasses and unfinished table settings - no desert cutlery. They didn't even have enough menus for all of us and had to come and ask menus from our table for other tables twice. It seemed like they only had 3 waiters on duty with 2 being inexperienced taking their time when we asked to bring us something.
Overall the service was pathetic - We had to wait a long time for our food and requests were not done promptly.
Marc was also there, but failed in running the evening properly i.e. not managing his staff and not having enough staff on the floor.

The food was average. I had the Chicken and Prawn Curry which was not up to scratch. As far as I know, you don't serve curry on a bed of Tastic Rice which was not boiled in salted water. There were only 5 prawns in the curry and a whole lot of chicken. The flavour of the curry however was quite good as well as the sambal and Popadum.

I have to congratulate Marc on a fantastic wine list. We had the White Pinotage which was very good.

Overall a good setting and ambience and quite a few glitches in food and service. Will not recommend Marc's because of very bad service.

“Not very lucky”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

We had a new server who was not really trained and got confused several times. Salad and tsaziki was good but spaghetti vongole very poor. Spaghetti completely overcooked and not very tasty.
Nice setting on the terrace.
