Mediterranean
Marfil Bistro opens for lunch and dinner, we offer an à la carte, where you can find a merger of the traditional modern kitchen, with a selection of dishes recommended by our creative Chef.
We recommend you to try the "Rack of Lamb" it's come over Himalayan salt board with grilled root vegetables and rosemary kalamata tapenade. You also cannot miss the "Mediterranean stuffed Branzino" that comes with giant beans salad and don’t forget a nice bottle of wine from our extensive wine cellar that will highlight all the flavors of your food. For dessert, we suggest "La Bola", a large sphere of chocolate, flamed until its chocolate soufflé and vanilla ice cream is discovered, we are sure this will complement your wonderful experience.

The service was outstanding. We sat outside, which was very pleasant. The goat cheese croquetas and the stuffed dates were very good. The pork osso bucco was memorable. The short ribs were excellent, too. We shared desserts, which were great. I strongly recommend this restaurant for its food, service, ambience and reasonable prices.

The waiter was extremely nice and accommodating but the kitchen was very slow. there was really nobody there and it was almost an hour before we got our brunch. The food came out a bit cold and the steaks were over done. I also wouldn’t recommend sitting outside to the left as you hear nothing but traffic and cars. Not too enjoyable. We honestly left feeling like we could have gotten that meal at Dennys with about the same taste and quality. It just wasn’t anything special. The food lacked flavor.

The goat cheese croquettes were good but you had to like goat cheese to really love it. The octopus was mildly rubbery but the sauce was delicious. The main meals were outstanding inclusive of the salmon and filet mignonette and the lobster. Overall a very good experience

First time visiting while on a trip to the Miami area for our anniversary. Everything we ate was delicious!! Enjoyed the seafood selection especially the seafood casserole dish. We had an early dinner that was quiet, but could tell there would be a crowd as we were finishing up. Recommend for a date night.

We had a fantastic experience at Marfil. The food was excellent. But, Luis, our server, made our experience outstanding. We called ahead & requested our server to wear a mask due to increasing COVID cases. He said nobody in the restaurant was wearing them because they’re vaccinated. I proceeded to explain that Omicron variant is affecting vaccinated individuals & that we wanted to cancel our reservation because we it felt unsafe. Luis said he would go get a mask to attend to us. Instead, I took him one which he wore gracefully the entire time. We were so touched by his willingness to serve us & adapt to our request. We felt safer & had a wonderful time. Luis is a treasure & I hope the management of the restaurant recognizes what an asset he is. It was fantastic! The food & ambiance were phenomenal. We loved our Christmas celebration here. Thank you Luis!

The food was very good. We ordered various appetizers like croquettes, filet mignon carpaccio, and octopus. And the main entries are the Manchego Risotto Short Ribs and the Lobster Risotto.

The main entrees could have come a bit warmer.

Marfil Bistro never disappoints, it’s one of our favorites at Doral. We went for Thanksgiving with my husband and we had a very pleasant time. Everything was delicious but we want to specially highlight the desserts. They were truly awesome. The staff made us feel at home, thank you.

The service was absolutely terrible. We had 2 waitresses at one point and although they were charming they forgot to put an order in leaving us without food for about 1 hour 45 minutes!! The ambiance is subpar, the music was decent, there was also a spider in the bucket of ice they left for us which was disgusting. No manager came by to check on us after we made a complaint and nothing (not even 1 drink) was deducted from our bill after the spider fiasco. Really would never recommend this place.

The service was impeccable, the waiter's recommendations were amazing. We tried 9 different dishes, all of which were phenomenal. We especially liked the tenderloin carpaccio, the salmon carpaccio, the burrata, the seafood on fire, and the dessert known as La Bola, a fiery and delicious finale. The restaurant was very clean and very tastefully decorated. We had an outstanding experience and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great spot for some fine dining.
