“Wonderful evening with a friendly owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

A concierge at a previous hotel recommended Marco Polo. It's down an alley in the old city with all the charm and ambiance you can ask for! The restaurant is inside a "mansion". With the warm weather, we sat upstairs on the patio. The walls are painted in deep vibrant colors and the foliage is lush.
Of course that is merely the ambiance! The food was very good too. There were 3 people in our party and we shared 2 starters and 2 entrées. More than enough!
The owner Effie stole the show. She talks to everyone and is a delight!
We would definitely return!

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

Very nice restaurant in the old town. Great food and pretty good service. Was so good I went two nights in a row. I did end up finding the service, though good, a bit mechanical. It's friendly, but without really looking you in the eyes and delivering sales speech. This besides, I'd go back and again. Definitely recommended.

Although we had written directions it was hard to find. We were recommended to this restaurant, amazing terrace , amazing food choices, not your usual tourist Greek food, great service. Only sorry we discovered it on our last night.

“Vegetables should be more than just decoration”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

We enjoyed our meal at Marco Polo but it could have been better. The restaurant is in a very nice courtyard behind the main building. The waiters were friendly and helpful. The house wine was good. My wife had the tuna, which was cooked as she likes it, almost raw inside, but her vegetables were tiny, just a bit of decoration on the plate. I had the lamb souvlaki, which was slightly undercooked, raw inside rather than pink, but not quite enough to send it back. Mine had a bit more vegetables with it, but not enough. The deserts were a bit disappointing, things which had been prepared much earlier and had spent the day in the fridge. We left feeling a bit hungry. They should be much more generous with the vegetables.
