Marco Polo does not accept multiple booking of tables from one person. One table booking only allowed per customer. If you require more than one table then you must contact restaurant directly by phone or email.
If we are unable to make contact with the phone number/email provided to confirm the booking, then we will cancel the booking.
We require a deposit to be paid or provision of credit card to be charged at busy booking periods. If a deposit or credit card is not provided then the booking will not be accepted and will be cancelled.
You must contact us and pay the appropriate deposit on making the booking.
Are large groups required to pay a deposit in advance?
For group bookings (5 or more), we can request a deposit of up-to €15 per person with a credit/debit card at the time of booking. (During busy seasons, we may require a deposit for all reservations made during this time.)
Please be aware that if you fail to cancel your booking or inform the restaurant of the reduced number of attendees 24 hours prior to the reservation, we reserve the right to charge €15 per person for each “no show”.
Are online or telephone reservations limited?
Marco Polo accepts a limited number of reservations because we welcome walk-ins at any time.
Can customers visit our restaurants without making a reservation?
We can be extremely busy, especially at weekends, bank holidays or special occasions (Easter, Christmas etc..) but we do our best to accommodate our customers on a first come, first served basis. Sadly some customers may be disappointed by the wait and we apologize for that but cannot guarantee a table at busy times. We therefore ask large groups, or those attending for special occasion to book in advance to avoid disappointment

Please give the restaurant a call as we may still have space available.
