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.

It is a pleasure to come and enjoy a meal at this restaurant in the DORAL area. We came a Saturday night, it was completely booked and maybe for this reason the food took its time to came to the table, but it was worthy. Good service, a saxophonist while enjoying a delicious meal like ossobuco raviolis and duck breast with porcini/coffee sauce. They have plenty of outdoor sitting.

The food and service was amazing! I highly recommend the smoked short rib with the manchego risotto. The service was wonderful! It’s a little pricey, but then again the food was just fabulous! I also highly recommend the guava soufflé.

I have noticed not only at your place that when ever the waitress sees that there is only 2 people/couple they don’t go beyond their service because the tip it’s not going to be much and that is so wrong because we never give less than 20% or more according to their service!

Everything was wonderful!!! The service, the presentation of the food & the quality of the food. The Smoked Old Fashion is a must! Had the seafood on fire as an appetizer & the Braised Short Rib Risotto & for desert tiramisu. Everything was incredible.

We have been coming to Marfil since it initially opened and we have not had a bad experience; yet. The service is great and their food is excellent. A bit pricy, but with the Covid; everyone raising their prices to ease their losses, after a 6 month closing. You will not regret the visit.

The food was excellent and the wine selection was very good. I requested a 93 pt Reserve Malbec which was not available but wasn’t disappointed with the 93 pt Kaiken replacement. Served a bit colder than should have been but very good nonetheless. Goat Cheese appetizer, Carpaccio, and the Ceviche were very good and well plated. The Sea Bass entree was perfectly grilled to an outside Crust with a butttery soft center. The surrounding seafood was well prepared and the cilantro rice was a very good touch.

Notwithstanding the strong whiffs of tobacco smoke that were smelled inside, the occasion was an A-.

One of our favorite places but not on this night. Waitress was not good. She never refilled our water glasses or asked if we wanted additional drink. My ribeye was over cooked and tough. When she ask how was meal I told her and she just ignore my comment and walked away. Not sure if maybe owner wasn’t in but very subpar experience both in good and in service not normal for this place.

Since our arrival, the service was great and on-point. As an appetizer we ordered the tuna tartare with spicy mayo and avocado and it was truly delicious. For the two entrees, we ordered the short ribs with manchego risotto and the filet mignon over tri-color potatoes, sautéed spinach and blue cheese sauce. Both of the ordered entrees were amazing as well. We will definitely be coming back for more!

Marfil Bistro is a nice hidden gem in Doral. The food was excellent, and so was the service and ambiance. They had someone playing the saxophone which was really nice, and helped with the mood. Our table was upstairs which was a little tight. The price is a little steep, but the food quality and taste makes up for it.

Definitely a place to recommend...

Great location and well decorated.

The service was OK. The food had an amazing presentation and the only reason I wouldn't give it a 5 star is because the Pork Ossobuco came out cold...

I also saw some dishes I would say are slightly overpriced.

Other than that we went on a Sunday night and the place was dead. There was maybe 2 other tables with customers.

Would come again and would recommend also. I'd prefer to go maybe a Saturday night with a bit more of a vibe.

We had great service and the cuisine is impeccable!!! When we ate our meals, both of our dishes burst with a fusion of flavors and our taste buds were beyond delighted!

I took my boyfriend here for his bday and he loved it! Let me tell you, he’s one picky guy, so I was beyond happy with that.

This was the second time here and I loved it just as much as the first!!! Definitely worth a try and you may catch yourself becoming a return customer!!! 👌😉💎

Quaint and cozy place. Service was good. I asked for additional bread and she replied, "how many"? Which is kind of awkward. As for the food, the Osobucco was a bit dry, pasta and octopus were good. Ambiance was nice except for when they sing Happy Birthday because the inside is rather small for how loud they played the song Which went on 5 times while we were there.
