Jennifer was a great waitress and the seafood was well prepared and tasty. If they have the amaretto gelato definitely get it. Be prepared for a small historical house; not a typical cafe or restaurant. If you are staying at a hotel nearby, ask your...More

Old decor, a weird smell and heavy feeling. Food heavy and not as fresh as possible. Capraese salad had grocery tomatoes in chuncks, no basil,roasted peppers and a dressing that tasted bottled. Clams oregano had more bread crumbs than anything else. Not worth the time...More

I'm not sure if they are. I haven't traveled there in the winter. A place as great as it is, I wouldn't be surprised if they are open though.

Tucked away in the northern most point of Old Marco is Cafe de Marco. An intimate bistro/cafe serving the most diverse selection of fresh seafood & other continental specialties since 1983. A favorite amongst locals & seasonal return visitors to Marco Island. Reservations are greatly appreciated. Olde Florida atmosphere in the historic district of Olde Marco. Perfect for an outstanding meal, business, or special occasion. Vast wine selection and beer available. Twilight specials and children's menu available. Owned and operated by same owner & family since starting out in 1983. Our building enjoys a rich piece of Marco history. The Cafe's building was the original quarters for the chamber maids employed by the historic Old Marco Inn just a few yards away. Many years ago the Inn functioned as a "bed & breakfast", and the maids would simply walk to work from our building. This explains the answer to a frequently asked question..."Was this an old house at one time?" Today, step inside to what has been transformed into an islander's tradition for over 30 years. We look forward to serving you soon! ~Sandy Franchino, Owner
