We arrived at Marben late one Friday night. The restaurant was buzzing. Luckily we had perfect timing and were able to be seated right away. We sat at the back in a cozy spot near the open kitchen. The restaurant had an interesting edgy, yet rustic vibe; as the night went on we continued to notice more aspects of the decor. The staff were all very hip, welcoming and very knowledgeable about the items on the menu.
As we sat down our server was quick to bring us WARM BREAD, inform us about the menu and their daily specials, and take our drink orders. Right away, we could tell the service was going to be great.
To go along with our mains we decided to try the PATATAS BRAVAS; house cut fries, toped with spicy tomato sauce, smoked paprika and garlic aioli. The fires were hot, fresh and well seasoned, and the spicy tomato sauce was tasy, but more smoky than spicy.
AM ordered the DINGO FARM'S ROASED RED ANGUS BEEF: 6 week dry-aged grass-fed beef, with bacon and crispy green beans. Once again the portion was quite small but large in flavours; the meat was perfectly cooked and well seasoned.
Would we go back ? Yes
