“Great View, good food”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

Marco polo is located on the top floor in holiday inn Nicosia city center. The view was amazing. Starter we had mushrooms with white sauce. Fresh mushrooms, great taste!. For main we had lamb - was a little bit dry - potato poure was tasteless but made from fresh potatoes. Tikka chicken was really good, spicy as should be!
The prices.....actually you pay the view.

“good price, great food, but sadly very slow service”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

We went to Marco Polo twice in the last month, both times for special occasions. Clearly, we had a good experience the first time, so we returned a couple of weeks later for our anniversary. The atmosphere is wonderful-- pleasant, chic, yet comfortable and not "too much" as some other places which seek to appear "romantic." I like the fact that the place is airy and open yet shielded from the wind at the same time. The view on the rooftop of the hotel is indeed beautiful, especially for Cyprus standards. The overall ambience is, therefore, welcoming and relaxing and I think this is the primary reason for going or for going back. The food will not disappoint, I think. it is nicely prepared, but this is not a gastronomic experience by any standards. We were satisfied with our meal, it was healthy and interesting, but not extraordinary. The price was also very reasonable, again given the quality of the food and the ambience. Where the place celarly falls short is the service. Since we did not want to ruin an otherwise pleasant night, we did not make a big fuss, but on both occasions it took at least 2 hours to complete our meal and this included a good hour of waiting for our main dish. It is easy to feel "forgotten" especially if you are seated in one of less central tables and the feeling can be frustrating, so keep it in mind, unless the management takes notice and begins to remedy the situation. Overall, I would reccomend the place but I would warn friends to be patient...

“Excellent”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Nice romantic setting with great views! Food is excellent. A little bit expensive, but with the special coupons from directdeals or skroutz you get 1 starter, 2 main courses, 2 desserts and a bottle of wine for only 35 euros! Totally worth going, especially using the coupon!

“Good food but...”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

The restaurant is having an offer/promotion this period. For 35 Euros per 2 persons one can get one starter , two main dishes and two deserts plus a bottle of red or white wine (specific label).
So we visited the restaurant yesterday night and took the offer.
There were some limitations on what to order, specifically in the main dishes (no steaks, no fish) and some dishes weren't available (one starter and two deserts), but besides that the menu has a plethora of choices, which I consider to be enough for a restaurant of this calibre and pricing.
The food is well-cooked and in sufficient portions and I have to say we were satisfied by the food.
Service though, was another story. Although in general the service was more than adequate (polite waiters, fast response) there was one incident at the beginning, that was a show-stopper for me.
As I mentioned before, in the specific menu, a red or white wine was included. We ordered the white wine. The waiter opened the wine and left it on the table, without tasting, without serving, without even a cooler. We had to serve ourselves, which in my opinion is unacceptable for a formal restaurant...
