Good food, cosy and very friendly staff. You have to make reservation, otherwise you will be waiting for a very long time. On the pricey side but food was good. I would come again next visit to Marco island.

You know that it happens...last years restaurant just isn't as good anymore. That is not the case with Marek's. Still an excellent bistro with an excellent, very fairly priced menu. My wife and I have eaten at the bar the last 3 years because we like the conversation with the people we meet and the great service. For the past... More

We have been to Marek's, 8 times during our winter stay in Marco and every time , it gets better. Megan has waited on us most of the time. She even knows what my husbands drink is. She knows the Menu forward and backwards and never writes it down. Had most things on menu and never disappointed. We always feel... More

We really like this restaurant - several different rooms and therefore different ambiance in each one. The food is always good - ranging from pure comfort food to freshest of fish prepared exotically or as you like it. We have never had a mediocre meal - this one was exceptional. I had the soft shell crab appetizer and wished I... More

Perfect place for a special birthday dinner..... from private seating in the library room to serving grandma's favorite cake!! Meal highlights included: awesome lobster risotto, Banana grouper, blackened shrimp alfredo, and large serving of short ribs. Lamb shank was delicious but small. We will definitely return!!

In addition to good food the atmosphere is wonderful. Warm and cozy with two bars. Bartenders are so personable and welcoming. The icing on the cake... More

We've vacationed in Marco for several years and always see lots of cars at this restaurant, but never tried it. We went early one evening (5:00), and I think that's the only reason we got a table. The food and service were amazing. I had the fish of the day, and my dining partner had fish and chips. Both were... More

I have been to Mareks many times and will continue to dine here. The food is wonderful, the drinks are terrific, the staff is very friendly and very accommodating. A couple nights a week there is a musician to listen to who is very good.
