Mark's Bar & Grill

The regular crowd at Mark’s Bar and Grill in Bucerias, both visitors and residents, consistently give this Riviera Nayarit hot spot top billing for food, ambiance and overall experience. Whether dining at the bar with great conversation or on the tropical garden patio under the stars, the Mediterranean and Asian inspired food will exceed expectations. 


Chef Jan Benton´s menu reflects her style of simplicity, depth of flavor and artful presentation. Fresh local seafood and produce are expertly prepared and served by an experienced wait staff.

Start with a taste from the tempting appetizer menu and be sure not to miss the organic salads and perfect pastas. Fresh ricotta gnocchi with San Blas shrimp or grass-fed filet mignon with horseradish scalloped potatoes are local favorites, along with amazing brick-oven pizzas. All the seafood and produce are sourced locally, expertly prepared daily and served by an accomplished staff. 

Happy Hour 5:00 to 6:30 - Enjoy a house drink or glass of wine plus mini appetizer of the day, or two house drinks or two glasses of wine for just $120 pesos (cash only for happy hour).
