Tonight we went to Marco’s it was clean, the atmosphere was good, and the staff was pleasant. The problem is I ordered Spaghetti Carbonara and was served something very different. The main flavour in a carbonara is bacon and it did say that on the...menu, there was absolutely no bacon in this dish it seemed like they put red peppers in it so something would be red. The dish was not bad but it wasn’t Carbonara. When I asked the server about it she didn’t quite know what to do. The coconut cream pie was very good though.More

Good menu. Tried the chicken and broccoli bake and the pork schnitzel with mushroom sauce. Served piping hot! Great and friendly service. Would definitely recommend. Lots of seafood on the menu as well.

Had a donair for lunch at Marco's and it was excellent. It had a generous topping of donair sauce with fresh tomatoes, lettuce and red onion over nicely spiced donair meat. I would have this again. Service was great as well. I didn't notice it...on the menu but I have had it before and it is available.More

I have eaten at Marco's a few times in the past and felt confident they had a great menu. At a recent visit, I decided to try the chicken stir fry as it is one of my favourite ways to eat chicken. The dish I...was served in no way resembled a stir fry. The vegetables and chicken were steamed, the vegetables were soggy and there was no sauce or additional flavor added. Since it was a special family occasion, I did not want to make a big deal about it. I phoned the restaurant the next day and spoke with a manager who told me they start the stir fry in a pan with water and the cover on. When everything is cooked, they add oil and a sauce. I explained this was not a traditional stir fry and the menu was misleading. I was then informed this was how stir fries are cooked and I should have just asked for another meal to be prepared that night. After all, I had eaten the meal so it must have been ok. Very disappointed. It will definitely influence future decisions about where I will be eating in Yarmouth.More

My wife and I dropped into Marco's several years ago. At that time it was very noisy due to hard walls and ceiling. The tables and chairs were of poor quality and the food was instantly forgettable. Fortunately all has changed! The Friday Gang visited...last night and were delighted. The decor has been significantly upgraded, with comfortable seating, warm colours, artwork on the walls and sound deadening on the ceiling, making for a much more comfortable dining experience. As for the food, like many local restaurants, they try too hard to cater to everyone, rather than specializing in one regional cuisine. Really, how many restaurants need to serve deep fried seafood? We all stuck to the "Little Italy" offerings. Personally, I had the Chicken Parmigiana on Alfredo noodles. It was served with two slices of baguette, in a large bowl. Very tasty indeed, but WAY too much! Every one of us had the same problem... no one could finish their dinner. Based on our experience, the management could easily reduce the size of each serving and lower the prices, which are a tad high. As for quality. it's the best Italian food in Yarmouth. Unfortunately it's the only Italian food available in Yarmouth, but it was very good, and certainly filling. The "Gang" will return.More

Even with a crowd, we all got our meals at the same time. We went there a few times and always great food and service. We will definitely be back again.

Prior to our meal we enjoyed a variety of (mostly breaded) appetizers. For our main meal several of us enjoyed the halilibut and chips, broccoli/cauliflower cheese/pasta dish, and the famous Digby scallops with sweet potatoe fries (or a spinach salad). The service was pleasant and...setting cafeteria styled.More

This is a grill that has super food. We had lunch & dinner there and were impressed. The back of the seating area has a neat view of a backwater from the bay.
