Stopped here on way to Dunblane from Dunfermline. Staff were lovely, food was delicious. We got a takeaway which took a wee while but was worth it, as all very fresh. We ordered the steak wrap, chorizo and chicken panini and bacon roll. Panini and wrap came with fresh salad and coleslaw. Really enjoyed it and also had the best coffee ever. Thanks to the lovely friendly staff. More...

Came to Marco’s kitchen today, lovely atmosphere, very attentive staff, the food was amazing and they even did gluten free for me, it is so hard to find places that serve gluten free food. Would highly recommend this place, especially if your going to the Theatre, you can book in advance. They have an excellent selection of dishes and can accommodate all dietary requirements. It’s a cosy place and very personal, they have affordable dishes for all. More...

What a lovely find, close to The Mayflower Theatre, so perfect for a pre show meal. The staff were friendly and efficient and the food was delicious. The decor of the restaurant was lovely too. Although perfect for a pre show meal, it would be great for other occasions too . As I visited the restaurant with my niece aged 11, I plan to revisit soon with my husband, as I was so impressed.

Friends & I had tickets for the matinee performance of Wicked, our train got in at 12, so using google earth we looked to see which places were close for lunch, I rang to book & spoke to a lady who gave a selection of times we could choose. I chose a 12.15 booking, on arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome & shown to our table. The lunch menu has a good selection of dishes. We ordered drinks first, while we decided what to have. We selected the sourdough garlic bread with cheese & bacon, a sharing platter with enough for the 3 of us & very tasty, my main was a delicious lasagna & a tasty fresh side salad, my friends choose the caramelised onion & goats cheese salad & the chorizo & chicken salad, they both enjoyed there meals. As we had the show to attend we decided not to have dessert. Service was efficient & with a smile. After seeing Wicked we popped back in before our train, we purchased 6 sicilian cannoli for our return train journey. We shall certainly be returning & cannot recommend Marco’s enough. More...

No one can beat their quality work in the current market. Product delivered by Marcos kitchens is way above the other builders or manufacturers in the market. They built my kitchen, laundry and study room about two years ago and I didn’t have a single problem. They went extra mile to help me out. Price was way cheaper than other branded companies and better quality. More...

Great banter and awesome food. However I did take one for the team, after hearing the sob story about how the last can of "minging" san pellegrino was left on the shelf all by itself. Yes I can confirm that it was an experience, it had a heady taste of gingerbread with the sharp flavour of over ripe oranges that were well past their due date. I can confirm I did finish it all and would highly recommend that you never try that flavour again. More...

Understanding the need of customers (Occasion and Budget)

Dealing with people and help them make their event special and memorable.

Working in the Airline industry for a few decade and the love and passion for food that run in my family delicatessen since I was born, inspire me to open a restaurant in 2010. Great customer service, honest quality well presented food and a modern venue have been our best assets.

Outstanding customer service follow by sensational food quality and great professionalism.
