Highly recommended. The service and good was excellent. It's a nice experience to eat pand stay at Marco's!
A lot of fun
Nice South African experience
Great place to try various African cuisine. The restaurant does focus on groups so can get very crowded! Food was delicious and good portions. Did not feel it overpriced either. Will come back!

Marco's has always been a lovely place for dinner. Keep up the good work guys !!
Great atmosphere and food
We went back for 2 more evenings
We were a group of 8 at 7:30pm. I don't know what was happening in the kitchen but we waited for 90 minutes for any dinners to come out. All of our orders came out separately and the last dish was not served until 10 pm. Worst of all, that last one was king clip and it was raw, two other people had undercooked dishes, and the person who ordered the lamb stew said the meat was too tough to chew. Four of us liked our dinners very much. The show was entertaining but we were right next to the stage and it gets to be long, loud and repetitive. It would be nice if they started the second set with softer music so people could visit.
Great vibe, great live band, wonderful staff! Really enjoyed our experience, thank you.
Wonderful food and atmosphere. Entertainment was great and the staff were friendly and accommodating. Will recommend to friends who travel here :)
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal of assorted typical African meats . Both the Serengetti and Pan African platters were cooked to perfection. The entertainment was also very good
Great atmosphere, very good service and excellent food (from the starters until the dessert). Everything was delicious and I was more than satisfied!
Super tolle Stimmung und authentisch leckeres Essen. Hier sind am Wochenende auch Einheimische und nicht nur Touris.
Marcos is a great place to hang out. I love the hospitality, food and live music.
On 17th of August 2016 I had dinner with group of 18 people from Bulgaria. We enjoyed nice atmosphere, very clean restaurant, nice music and the girls really entertained the public in the restaurant. The service and food was excellent. I really can recommend Marco's African Place as very good African experience. I am thinking New Year to celebrate there with my groups.Vaska
Wow.... I had friends over from Germany and all I wanted was to give them an African experience. Marco's is an exceptionally amazing place. I made sure we arrived and had our meal before the incredible music and performance at 8pm on Friday. The service was great at first I found it time consuming for our hungry stomachs to listen to the waitress tell us about the other menu. He explained every started, meal and dessert one by one but to my surprise it was very helpful for my friends. Our waitress was Choco. After he presented the menu they knew what they were ordering. The performance and the music was simply amazing and engaging. The vibe there is what I believe every restaurant should have Going to marco's is more than just the delicious food but about the experience too. Thank you Marco's wishing you much success.
Great food and amazing bread.
Thank you to the friendly and helpful staff throughout the whole process of booking and on the evening. Deserves an applaus! Thanks to Bongi for organising and for Denis and his team on the evening. Every guest was impressed and will definitely be returning! Awesome evening!
