“Just what the doctor ordered!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Was looking for something a bit different and came across El Marques. A very warm welcome, decent wine list and some very tasty dishes.

We had spring rolls to start (grease-free and flavoursome) and Nasi Goring for our main which was truly excellent; bursting with flavour and ultra-fresh.

Do yourself a favour; try something different!

“Poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The place is packed with Dutch people. The service is very poor. It is like they are there because they have jailtime. Food is oke but not special. Prices are way to high for what they deliver.

“Excellent bar in centre of San Pedro de Alcantara”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

This small bar is located in the heart of San Pedro. The dutch owners are very friendly and make sure you will enjoy your breakfast/lunch/dinner or drinks. The small menu offers enough variety and their famous dish is 'nasi'. During lunch you can enjoy great sandwiches. They also serve various international beers on bottle. So, it is a great place to relax and enjoy your food/drinks at each time of the day. It is definitely worth a visit.

“Fantastic food & service, you must try it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

This little but very friendly bar is situated in the pedestrian area of San Pedro Town which is delightful in itself. It's run by Dutch people who certainly know how o keep the customers happy, great selection of drinks & cocktails all reasonably priced & they offer a simple but superb selection of fantastic snacks & more substantial meals. The outside AL Fresco area is a great place to watch the world go by & the service is immediate, the fact so many locals keep returning here is good recommendation in itself. The food is always cooked fresh in the spotless kitchen & we find the selection very good indeed, everyone we take there wants to go back. They offer a good selection of very reasonable meals & very good children menu, you will not spend. Fortune here & all the plates we see go back to the kitchen empty. A super little & atmospheric bar to meet friends & occasionally have a really tasty meal, cannot ask for more. Go & try it you will not be disappointed.
