“Fantastic food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2007

Having been to most restaurants on Marco Island on one of my numerous trips to this particular slice of paradise I can whole-heartedly recommend Marek's. The food is simply out of this world and the service impeccable though not patronising. Definately worth a try - you won't be disappointed!

“We had to return because of the great experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2006

After we arrived at our condo located on the northern end of Marco Island, we were in need of a good meal since we had not eaten since breakfast in the tundra of Wisconsin. We had seen by these reviews that Mareks was a good place and it was just a few blocks north of the condo. We arrived about 5:30 in this pre-season mid November saturday evening. We were fortunate to get a table as most were reserved from 7:00 on. We had a fabulous appetizer to begin our experience. The entrees were presented with a wonderful flair. The subtle flavors were to be savored with each bite. A wide variety of deserts offered could not be resisted. We each had a creme brulle - one rasberry flavor and one traditional - both great. With 3 glasses of wine the tab was just over $100. We found in the ads available that they were offering a special if you will arrive before 5:30 which was a 3 course meal with wine for 16.95 offered until november 16. We could not resist and had another wonderfully exceptional time. We will return!

“Marek's, Simply the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2004

We fly down to Marco every October, and have tried all the fine dining establishments on the Island. Marek's is the best. From there nightly special appetizers and entrees to sumptuous desserts you just can't get any better than this.. Everything is prepared to perfection, never missing the small details, and always going a step or two above our expectation...

“Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2004

I live in Kensington, London SW7 and have dined at Marek's restaurant in Marco Island numerous times and found the food and service second to none, it has a cosy, charming and welcoming ambiance. The owners Peter and Penny Marek are excellent hosts. Highly recommended and well worth the visit!!

“Five Stars: The best food in Marco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2004

Marek’s Collier House restaurant was a golden find during our vacation to Marco Island this year. We LOVED this place and couldn’t eat there often enough. The excellent service and intimate ambience was only surpassed by the quality and choice of the food on the menu. The owners have successfully managed to transfer their passion and talent for food from Jersey, a tiny island off the coast of France (yes, we had no idea where it was either!), to a larger Island community! The French influence is obvious in their wonderful menu from mouth-wateringly tender lamb to perfectly cooked steak and a large selection of wonderfully fresh fish. The fact that the Chef, Peter Marek, has won more international culinary awards than the Yankees have won the World series, AND has cooked for the Queen of England herself, should be enough to make you try this wonderful restaurant. They certainly made us feel like Royalty!!!!!!!!!
