“Superb service and Delicious Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

A delightful, unpretentious place, attractively decorated and where one is not bombarded by over-loud muzak so conversation without yelling is perfectly possible! Our table by the fire was a very welcome respite from the crispy air on Saturday but the courtyard looks dreamy and I am looking forward to a visit in summer.
The menu is not overlarge and the dishes are prettily presented, our only criticism was the lack of variety in the vegetables which accompanied our meal, to have duck breast on butternut mash served with yet more butternut, was disappointing. My companion praised the duck and I can vouch for the perfection of the fillet!
Lyle was our waiter and he truly provided service way above and beyond our expectations - Thank you Lyle! Truly, you are one of the main reasons I rate this establishment so highly!

“Paarl's best kept secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

Third time at Marc's. Best fillet in town. My kids love the kids chicken kebabs- so nice that kids have healthy choices, not the usual fried fish fingers or hot dogs.

“Flattering to deceive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

Service was very slow although that might be due to computer system not working but surely there should be a backup plan ! The paella was very peppery but the salad and creme brule were good.

“Cafe feel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Wife and I were in Paarl for the weekend. Decided to try our what we were told would be the best steak in town... so we orders starter's and a drink each. The starter's looked like they had been wrapped or of a Woolies prepacked container, it was way to small. I suppose if you want to pop around there wis some folk fir a quick drink it would be better but not my expectation of a Mediterranean joint...
Service was ok but nothing to write about.
After having the starters we decided to pay the bill and try soming a little more suited to the defined and seasoned taste buds...
