    Wonderful Cuban food and attentive service. We trusted our server's recommendations for favorites and were very glad we did. On the other hand, there were so many attractive items on the menu, we could return multiple times and have something new every time. The super-hot oven lends a great crispness to the vaca frita. Strong drinks menu - I had the seasonal mojito with mango and it was perfectly balanced - a hint of mango keeping it from being too sweet. Oh, and don't miss the desserts - outstanding bread pudding and a "Spinal Tap" QUATROS leches cake!

    MarabúResponded on July 22, 2022Thank you for letting us serve you! We're glad to know our Cuban food was wonderful and that our service was attentive.

    We had another lovely experience, this time with Ivana B as our waitress. She was so sweet, funny and attentive. She made sure we were taken care of, double checked our orders and made us feel at home. She’s a true gem in a restaurant that has some of the best Cuban food out there. Mojitos are made to perfection and we always leave room for dessert. So good!

    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!

    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!

    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!
