Love Bistro & Cafe
Price range: US$7 - US$33
Description: Love Bistro serves only the freshest ingredients from around the lake, creating each dish from scratch, with love. The restaurant hosts a full bar and extensive craft cocktail list. Live music on many evenings and good tunes the rest of the time. Set right on the water in picturesque San Marcos, the setting can't be beat, swing through Love Bistro and feel the Love! ️

Had a lovely meal at the fairly new Love. Great location, eclectic atmosphere and cool vibe. The food was amazing (fried ravioli with goat cheese and mushrooms, so good). Owner and waiter Pauly was friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. Highly recommend you trying out Love ~ you won’t be sorry.

TACOS are a must try! A little pricey, but if you are looking to splurge this is the place! All of their food that came out looked delicious and the service was excellent.

Love Bistro is new, and they seemed to still be working out some kinks during our visit. We arrived too early for dinner service and were told to come back (while others - seemingly friends of the staff) were at the bar having a drink. We did come back (and again felt like we were interrupting when the staff finally stopped hanging out with their friends to seat us) because there was supposed to be a violinist playing. We were there an hour after the music was supposed to start. The violinist warmed up on the balcony and then went back up to the bar area and was hanging out with friends when we left. No music ever happened. Our waitress didn't seem to know the menu well and huffed a little when I didn't take her word for whether a certain ingredient was in a dish (I'm allergic) and asked her to ask the kitchen. Our food was okay. Not the best we had in San Marcos while being the most expensive. We were in San Marcos for five weeks and never had any desire to go back.

They seem to be trying to do a lot of things well all at one time - classes, workshops, theme nights, dinner, bar, etc... But maybe they should focus on doing one thing better than everyone else if that's their price point.

All that said, the view is amazing. Go here for drinks.

Set beautifully, right on the water in San Marcos la Laguna Love Bistro is a casual, comfortable, delicious restaurant. Much of the team at Love Bistro used to run Lush Kitchen, they have since moved the outfit to the lakeside and renewed the culinary and vibratory pursuits con gusto! They have a full bar, craft cocktails, and growing small wine list. The food is a mix of international cuisines and fusion made from scratch with local, fresh ingredients. A delicious grill, vegetarian options, good for parties, dates or just loitering around listening to guitar or broken trumpet and rolling cigarettes and having dessert. A not to be missed stop for anyone hanging in San Marcos and looking to soak in all the quirk the village has to offer. Much love.
