This casually elegant Bucerias landmark, famous for its great bar, food and service, has been consistently voted Best Out of Town Restaurant by readers choice. Chef Jan Benton is clearly passionate about food, receiving acclaim from both patrons and the media for her elegant menu. With focused flavors and clean lines, using Mediterranean and Asian influences, Mark’s exceeds expectations.
The bread and flatbread are handmade daily and fired in the brick oven. A local favorite is four cheeses, smoked salmon, capers and arugula. The appetizers are not to be missed with tempura tuna rolls, fried calamari, beef carpaccio and daily soups. People travel for the perfectly grilled filet mignon with blue cheese ravioli, the butter poached fresh lobster and the variety of pasta dishes each with its own dazzling presentation. Mark’s offers an extensive wine list, many available by the glass, and a specialty cocktail list.
The innovative menu reflects the best of the season with daily chef creations, utilizing local grower’s produce and fresh seafood such as mussels and scallops flown in from Baja. The freshly made desserts are irresistible, try the trio tasting plate followed by a choice of great coffee liquor drinks and espresso. With regular live music, Mark’s Bar & Grill makes a night out an event.
