    My boyfriend went here last night. Overall good experience. It was very busy, lots of people hustling & bustling but it made the vibe lively & exciting. Wouldn’t recommend if you’re looking for a nice relaxing evening. I had the poke bowl which was a little pricey but it was refreshing and delicious. Just be careful because they add 18% gratuity automatically. We accidentally gave an extra tip because of this. Overall I think that it was a great time!

    Service was very good. Octopus starter, and bread pudding were excellent. I was disappointed with the grouper - not grilled well and tasted fishy like it had been lying around for awhile so did not finish it. Very noisy

    Marabu was a casual Cuban restaurant in the Brickell City Center on a Sunday, Mother's Day and we were fortunate enough to finish our sightseeing by 4:00 pm and got there before the majority of diners which was great. The waitress was very nice and attentive. She told me that their passion fruit mojito was the best around and she certainly didn't lie. Overall the food was good. Nothing too exciting however the prices were in line for the cuisine but impressive for the area. Overall, if you would like to have decent Cuban food in an area where most restaurants are aimed at foodies along with the prices, I would suggest Marabu is a good choice.

    I attended a dinner with business associates. We had amazing ropa vieja empanadas for appetizers and for the main course had Cuban sandwiches and a ropa vieja entree. The food was cooked perfectly! I have had Cuban sandwiches all over the country and this was probably the best Cuban sandwich I have had. I highly recommend Marubu. Oh, the service was great, too!

    MarabúResponded on 5 May 2022Thank you for your wonderful feedback and for recommending Marabú! We're happy to read the Cuban Sandwich was the best you've ever had. We look forward to serving you again very soon.

    My husband and I had a fun evening here. Amazing dinner…truly a feast for the eyes and the stomach. Absolutely fantastic service! Carlos took care of us like we were cherished family. 😊 From the wonderful suggestions to instructions for my drink to attentive & friendly service, the meal couldn’t have been more perfect. We were looking for a special Miami restaurant to sample Cuban food near our hotel, and we couldn’t have been more pleased. The location is a little tricky to find (we didn’t find the correct escalators or elevators for a bit after getting to the mall), but the food experience more than made up for the location challenges. By the end of the meal, we felt like Carlos was our friend we were having to leave. Such a true pleasure was our experience here. The drinks were delicious (various mojitos and a couple different old fashions), the appetizers were very tasty (mixed seafood cerviche and truffle yuca fries), and the red snapper entree was EXQUISITE. So was the quatro leches dessert! All in all, a perfect 5 stars!

    MarabúResponded on 2 May 2022Thank you for letting us serve you! Customer satisfaction is our top priority and we're glad to see our review reaffirms the hard work we put in every day. We look forward to welcoming you again very soon. Thanks again!

    We had a great time at Marabú. Yes, it’s in the middle of a mall, and the noise level was on the loud side, but the service was fantastic. My wife and I both had the ropa vieja, which was phenomenal. Definitely a good spot for a relaxed but fun night out in Brickell.

    Marabu used to be one of my favorite latin restaurants…no more. It seems they changed their menu (and chef?) in December and lost most of their iconic dishes. No more maduro with bacon, mozzarella and maple…no Caja China. The menu now looks like a diner. It has been simplified to the point I will never go back (the tuna tostones were very good tho).

    The food took a significantly long time to come out. And to make it worse, the food was salty and the rice was hard and overcooked. The ceviche also had a funny taste. Our server would disappear for long stretches of time and we had to go inside and find her for the check. Also there was no toilet paper in any of the bathroom stalls, we had to ask a server to replace it. Overall not the best experience in service or food. Disappointed. I had high hopes for this place.

    Dinner was fine, nothing to write home about. I tried the beef empanadas and got the chopped salad for dinner(server said it was her favorite). The salad was fine. It was a salad. My husband got the burger. He seemed satisfied with it. Another in our party got the chicken which was bland. She said the best thing about the chicken dish was the rice. She left most of her dinner on her plate. We didn’t realize the restaurant was part of the mall in downtown Miami. When Trip Advisor indicates “outdoor seating” as a categorical header, let me clarify, you are actually sitting outside the restaurant but in the mall. An escalator deposits people right where you are sitting. The best I can say about this dinner is that we ate, but it was on the verge of feeling fast food’ish and the ambience was non-existent.
