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!

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.

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

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.
