Marcos Cuban Cafe Naples Restaurant Review

For a filling breakfast or lunch, 6:30 am to 4 pm, Marcos is among the top 3 Cuban restaurants in SW Florida. A favorite of those in the Industrial Park area, east of the Naples Airport, it can be nearly full most days. This is hearty well spiced food at very good prices. Marco Soto, the chef/owner, is obviously on site (below), and business is strictly locals, who keep coming back frequently.There's plenty of chairs, a wide screen TV, and ample photos on the walls of spots around Cuba.
Lechon Asado (Roast Pork) Very tender and well spiced (7.75).
Media Noche -Smoked ham, pork, cheese and pickles on sweet bread ($4.95) thisis a great example of the real thing.
Congri, puerco asado-roast pork and garlicky yuca-the best! Often served for Christmas dinner.(~8) My favorite, Bistec de Palomilla, fried breaded thin Cuban steak, con tostones y limes, onions and parsley-the classic! (7.50)
We also had tamales and other goodies, and my hands were too messy to hold the camera! Have platanos maduros-the sweet plantains ((2), and a can of cold Materva, wine or natural juices. There's at least seven specials each day, so come hungry, leave with leftovers, and change from your ten dollar bill! .4110 Enterprise Avenue, Naples, 239-435-1961
