“Always a good choice.”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

The food is good, the ambiance ambiance as well. They have a pretty garden. Aside from their normal dinners, they serve a very good lunch ...fresh ingredients etc. Service can be a bit mixed depending on how frantically busy they are.

“Marks Bar & Grill still comes through with flying colours!”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

My wife and I visited Marks again recently, and had a pasta dish each and shared a salad. For drinks, we each had a different glass of wine - one Burgundy and one Shiraz. Simple pleasures served up in what has become a classical setting for the area - great service from the staff - especially the wait staff and the bar. Mark is always gracefully hospitable and Jan is alertly on hand to see that the standards remain high. Cudos to Mark and Jan and staff for continuing to bat a 1000 (pardon the baseball analogy) - no going stale here! Great food, great service...and an easily accessible location for parking and after dinner walks - and taxis, too if you want to imbibe an extra drink or two!

“Good food and drinks”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

We have eaten here a few times over the past few years and the food and drinks are excellent. The service is average-good. When we first started going the prices were fair but now that they have been written up in lots of magazines the prices are what you would expect from a fine dine restaurant in the USA or Canada,not Mexico.

“Reliable”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

Mark's is a great place for good, reliable food. Mark is always there, usually at the bar. His wife, Jan, is usually running the kitchen and is the designer of the restaurant, which is beautifully lit.
