The Lower Gulf Coast Restaurants



Café de Marco

Café de Marco Review

This cozy little bistro with cheery yellow walls and stained-glass windows has served expertly prepared local fish since 1983. The jumbo prawns—an entire pound butterflied and broiled in their shell—are the signature dish, but grilled filet mignon on phyllo pastry proves the kitchen also knows how to do meat. Try stuffed Florida lobster, sautéed frogs' legs, or the broiled seafood platter. For a taste of the café without the sticker shock, dine from 5 to 5:45 for a reduced-price early bird menu. In 2013, there is also an "anniversary" prix-fixe menu every evening to celebrate the restaurant's 30-year anniversary; at $27, it includes a salad, main dish, dessert, coffee, and glass of wine.
