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.

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.

One of the few truly gourmet restaurants in the growing Miami area city of Doral, Marfil never disappoints. The fish dishes are fresh with subtle but tasty sauces that do no overpower. While the wine list is limited, the selection is quite broad and of very good value. A wonderful place for either a business dinner or romantic outing.

When we arrived we were shocked to find the dining room at capacity given the COVID restrictions. We asked to be seated outside. Our server seemed to not understand that covering your nose is an important part of wearing a mask and had her mask pulled beneath her nose the entire time. The appetizer of coconut shrimp was good, but not exceptional. It was pretty standard fare that one could find at nearly any restaurant. I ordered the steak and eggs. The first plate they brought me consisted of overcooked sunny side up eggs and the toughest, most flavorless steak I have ever encountered. Not only was it overcooked (I asked for medium rare), it was also so tough I could barely get a knife through it. My friend tried it as well and agreed it was inedible. The second steak they gave me, after I complained, was better in texture and better cooked, but was equally devoid of seasoning. I had to ask for salt, which brought murmurs of disbelief from the waitstaff. The dessert was ok, but not memorable. Overall it was a terrible experience and I have no plans to ever go back. I’m
Surprised to have had such a disappointing time as the reviews I read were high. We chose the Miami Spice menu. Perhaps that was a mistake, although I thought the idea was to be exposed to the menu and attract customers to return. That did not work in this instance.

Love the ambiance! The food was not to the price standard. The kids food was cold and our food was tasteless. The drinks were good but the service was a disaster. It took forever to take the drinks and the food order. The waiter didn’t not give any recommendation on the food, he didn’t seem knowledgeable about the menu, had an actitud and barely came to check on us. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone and surely not coming back!
