It may look like your average neighborhood cafe, but "M&V Cafe" delivers a truly delectable experience. My husband and I went for Valentines dinner special, and were immediately greeted by friendly staff . The restaurant filled up quickly, yet the service was impeccable throughout the night. We started with champagne foie gras terrine with walnut raisin toast and fig jam, just succulent. My husband had the short-rib braise in red wine served over a creamy radiatori pasta and, I had the Mahi-mahi quenelle, both excellent. We ended with an extraordinary chocolate fondant cake and crème brûlée.
Do not let appearances fool you—the decor may be simple, but the food is exquisite. This place is perfect for groups or a casual breakfast, lunch or dinner. Should you have the opportunity to go eat there, do not hesitate!

Amazing food at very reasonable price. My friend and I shared escargot as a starter. It was fabulous. I asked for more bead to soak up every bit of the garlic butter sauce. We also had the lunch special of chicken breast with pasta in a ratatouille sauce. It was very good. For dessert, I had the creme brulee, which was very good as well. The only drawback is the lack of parking but that is a very big drawback since it is a very small lot, shared by three businesses. The tattoo people were very nice about us parking behind their shop, even though they had to move cars to let us out. My advice is to arrive early and plan to walk a bit.

Enjoyable platter of foie gras, succulent Osso bucco, pleasant owners, and creamy , crispy crème brûlée . Other tables enjoyed salads and fish such as the quenelle over mushroom risotto. Good food , honest ingredients in the hands of French professionals

First time here, overall we loved it. Only suggestion would be something to absorb some of the sound, they have 10 or so tables for seating but it sounded like we were in an auditorium with 100’s and made it hard to speak across the table of two. And this was at brunch.

This neighborhood spot is stylish and clean lined. I have been twice for lunch and once for dinner. It is good quality and really nice food and presentation. I do find it a bit pricey for everyday lunch, but they do a nice happy hour. The grilled fish, the sandwiches and the chocolate mousse were really very nice. the staff and decor is casual yet classy.

Everything was delicious!! My husband and I both ordered the tuna as a main course and both of ours was cold. We gave it back and they warmed it up and it was much better. Our appetizers were outstanding. All in all would definitely go back

Interesting menu. Lunch centers on sandwiches, quiches. Offerings are pricey. Want to try dinner menu. Parking is TIGHT, but if you are willing to cross Biscayne Boulevard, there is a large parking lot for a strip mall across from Barok.

Barok is always good,regretfully, never better. We live 10 minutes away and used to go there often, less so recently. The problem is a menu that hasn’t changed since they opened, and specials which are uninspiring and for the most part overpriced. This night they ran out of several menu items including an ingredient to make a sauce. Inexcusable! We have told them directly,but the owners don’t seem to care. Too bad, because it could be a first rate restaurant with just a little more effort.

Dear Howard, Thank you for your review Barok Cafe. I'm sorry to hear that our specials are uninspiring. We are changing it often and I'm sure you will find something more appealing next time. After a busy weekend, we run out of some items, apologies. Most of our regular customers love our menu and ordering their usual, we prefer working on daily specials. It doesn't occur that we spoke on Sunday, it's my day off, I will love to speak to you on your next visit. Happy Holidays. RUDY Owner.

The restaurant is a cafe yes but the menu is anything but. Very French, good variety of both menu items and specials and reasonably priced. Though it lacked much in the way of decor, it nevertheless felt cozy.
We had the special brie with truffles which came with lovely artisanal bread, a small salad with sliced figs
and strawberries and lettuce. Very large so should have been shared but I took the rest home instead.
H had the foie gras...didn't hear a word out of him - he was busy enjoying. For mains I had the filet mignon au poivre with their special ratatouille as I didn't want the carbs that came with it. H had pan seared salmon with cauliflower rice (made especially as he didn't want the carbs that came with it). Loved the fact that they happily replaced items we didn't want with something else. Dessert was crepe suzette which we shared. Will definitely come here again next time we are in Miami.

Fantastic French cuisine at a reasonable price. Small, so reservations recommended. Wonderful sauces and numerous specials. Service was attentive without being to pushy or rushed. This was an unexpected gem! We will certainly return when we are in the Miami area again.
