“We're so glad we stopped here”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

This restaurant is true to its reviews. Exceptionally tasty food, beautifully presented and clearly enjoyed by locals and travellers alike. Unfortunately Marcel, the owner, has decided to return to Switzerland so his cafe is now closed. No word on whether it will reopen and whether or not the new owner will be able to wow its customers as well as Marcel. I don't know her name (but she'll know I mean her)... kudos to the gal who was Marcel's chief server, prep and shutdown gal for so many years. She made everyone welcome, was very good at her job and was part of the team that made this restaurant such a success.

“Gem in the Cariboo”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Great place in the Cariboo. As good a meal as you would find at any fine restaraunt in the lower mainland of BC. Service is great, and the food is spectacular! Great for a quick bite or a fine meal.

“Great dinner... I had the Butter Chicken”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

For me, who is lactose intolerant, I was delighted to find out that the Saturday night special, Butter Chicken, was made with almond butter instead of milk products.
Of course, the service was great. Marcel's is in the most unassuming location for such quality cuisine.
