First time for my family. We were a little surprised that the restaurant was not crowed or busy for a Saturday night but that should have been a sign for us. We arrived and were seated very shortly after the hostess finished a phone call. We ordered a few entrees minus the drinks for a total around $70. The big issue we had was the food was fair at best, small portions, and extremely poor service - this was mainly it with the fair food. The server did not make much of an effort to fill our glasses. It was disappointing for us based on all of the positive feedback. I had the fresh fish and it was no better than a baked dish from Captain D's, then you are there with nothing to drink. I felt guilty leaving anything for a tip... I would not recommend or waste my money.

We love Marek's and it is our "go to" restaurant on the island. Wherever we are in the mood for eating out, we know this place will not disappoint. The food is always amazing and fresh. They offer a large variety of lighter options like salads and seafood, as well as heartier meat dishes... there's truly something for everyone. The prices are surprisingly reasonable! The restaurant itself has a great atmosphere - casual yet special. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. Indoor and outdoor seating options are both lovely, as well as the bar area. This is a must for anyone living or visiting the island. You won't be disappointed!

This is our go to restaurant on Marco. Always good. Love their curry. They aren't so good about making fish you bring in.
