There is nothing to dislike about this place, been there many time over the years. If you are unsure of which wine goes with your chosen meal, just ask, the staff are always very knowledgeable. Keep up the good work Marc.

Excellent service and we got special treatment with a glass of champers on the house because of our anniversary. Sitting on the veranda sure gave a nice romantic atmosphere

We ate here a few times during our trip and we absolutely loved it! The food was superb. We both can't wait to come back! The service made it very special!

Marc's is as close to my home as it is to my heart. A tasty meal with personality and charm awaits you, as you meander through its open doors. Welcoming smiles greet you as you enter; a warmth and friendliness abounds. Tasteful art dresses the walls and soft melodies are carried across time and space. A truly delightful evening was...

Food is acceptable, service is poor. We have all but given up on Marc's as a restaurant we would frequent.

We happened on Marc's on a Saturday evening. Judging by the exterior I did not expect much, maybe a cake-and-coffee or a light dinner. Upon entering the establishment I immediately realized how wrong I was. Service was very professional and attentive. Atmosphere is nice and homely, but you also know from the word go that you are in very capable... More

I took a friend out to this place in Paarl. Great mezze platter to share which was very good value for money and delicious. They also stock a great selection of local wines. We sat in their back garden - where the chairs are not very comfortable. The service was great. But the best thing was their chocolate mousse. The... More

After booking into our guest house, we wanted to get some dinner and we decided to try Marc's on the Main Road of Paarl. The restaurant was warm and inviting with cheerful and attentive staff. We ordered wine and were brought warm and crisp flat bread with a zingy pesto as a nibble while we mulled over the menu. What... More

I came here on recommendation and I'm glad I did. It was New Years Eve and although it was only late afternoon, it had just struck midnight in Australia, so I had a glass of champagne to celebrate with the lovely staff wishing me a happy new year. The restaurant is classy with an outdoor terrace, although it can get... More
