If you are a tourist to wales you must visit Marcos cafe, very famous for a TV series but wait until you meet Marco the owner. One of the nicest men you will ever meet and his children are fantastic. The view from the cafe is lovely, you look out to Barry beach which is spotless. The coffee is real Italian and the atmosphere is very friendly. I try and go there when I’m home, just sit there in piece and quiet drinking coffee and laughing with Marco. If you go to London you visit the Palace, if you come to wales visit Marcos. Massive thumbs up.

Every visit to Barry and Whitmore Bay demands a trip to Marco's, to sit and watch the world go by while drinking the very good coffee. It's not posh or romantic but just a nice place to be.

We were drawn here as fans of Gavin and Stacey and wanted a nice cuppa. It was good to see that the coffee was good quality and reasonably priced. We also decided to have an ice cream. I can certainly recommend the apple pie ice cream. Haven’t seen it before but it was delicious. Would recommend to others visiting the area.

Marco's is one of the prominent tourist stop offs when visiting the Island, primarily because of it's association with the filming of the BBC hit comedy, Gavin & Stacey. That said, they serve great coffee! I've had countless cappuccinos from the place over the years and the never fail to serve the best.
