J'ai trouvé que les plats étaient bons quoique mon entrée "Tomates, Fraises, Glace à l'huile d'olive" était un peu simple et que mon dessert "Banane, Cream cheese et Chocolat" m'ait un peu déçu (P-ê juste parce que je suis une grande amatrice de chocolat et que je n'ai pas aimé le goût de la crème au chocolat). Ceci dit le plat était bon et le pré-dessert excellent. Le service et l'atmosphère étaient également agréables. Sauf quand j'ai demandé un plateau de fromage sans présure animale, en dessert, pour mon mari qui a une maladie congénitale qui l'empêche de manger du saccharose (sucre de canne, de betterave, etc...) et qu'on m'a répondu assez sèchement qu'il n'y avait pas de fromage sans présure (vegetarian cheese) et qu'il était impossible d'avoir quoi que ce soit en remplacement. On m'a précisé que j'aurais dû le préciser à la réservation. Ce qui n'est pas faux. Mais au vu de la liste d'ingrédients que mon mari ne peut manger, je préfère en général étudier le menu avant de me rendre au restaurant et trouver des solutions en amont. J'ai vu que le restaurant proposait un assiette de fromage et qu'il était également proposé des formules végétariennes, j'en ai donc déduit qu'obtenir une assiette de fromage sans présure (surtout en Angleterre où ils sont légions) ne serait pas un soucis. J'ai visité de très nombreux restaurants dans pas mal de pays et c'est la première fois que mon mari a eu le sentiment d'être coupable d'être malade. Le serveur a insisté très lourdement sur le fait que nous aurions dû le dire avant. Au final, je dois saluer le geste commercial qui a été fait car on nous a offert un voucher de £25 pour une prochaine visite. Si jamais nous y retournons, ce dont je ne suis pas encore sûre, je donnerais à nouveau mon avis, par soucis d'équité.

The meal was OK, prawn cocktail was generous and good, other starter was mainly beetroot with a tiny bit of grated apple and two tiny balls of goats cheese. Both main courses were OK but disappointing but it is good that you realise home cooking is better than eating out.

Wonderful food, beautifully crafted with exciting combinations and flavours. The service was generally courteous and efficient with only one member of staff being aloof and a little intimidating. This was a special occasion and served the purpose well. We will certainly return.

Outstanding food that far exceeded our expectations. Sensationally beautiful and tasting dishes from tasting menu. Vegetarian substitutions were magnificent, which makes a pleasant change. Superb example of Michelin quality, fine dining at its best. Vast improvement on previous iteration (Edmunds) though food was fine then too. Professional, discreet service. Thank you!

Maribel is quite nice. We were big fans of Edmunds (the former restaurant here).
Lovely atmosphere, quiet and sophisticated. Attentive staff. Food was wonderful, we went A La Carte.
Only two downsides-
Firstly, the Argentinian Pinot Noir by the glass was undrinkable. I had a couple of sips and then I simply left the rest of the glass because it tasted incredibly bitter and rough around the edges. We were disappointed as we trusted the sommelier would have curated a menu of wines by the glass of a better calibre. £10 per glass also, felt like an expensive waste. Mentioned this to one of the servers and they apologised that it was not to my taste but I do feel it was an objectively bad-tasting wine! I have never before left a glass of wine unfinished in a restaurant.
Secondly, whilst dining we heard a woman loudly explain she was here with a Groupon voucher, not what one likes to learn about whilst dining full-price. We investigated the deal after we got home and it would have saved us a considerable amount of money.
Despite these minor downsides, we may return in future as the food was delicious and the atmosphere was very agreeable.

Food was beautiful, very tasty and perfect in every way. Staff were friendly and welcoming and the service was efficient and professional. The restaurant was lovely and comfortable and very clean. It was quiet when we visited but there was music playing softly in the background which created a nice atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this restaurant, it was superb in every way.

Three of us went last Thursday lunchtime for a taster meal. I think there were six courses and we enjoyed them all. Most were dishes we would never have ordered ourselves but the quality of taste and presentation was outstanding. Each dish was briefly described to us as it was served by friendly staff. Expensive but nice to treat ourselves occasionally!

I used to visit quite often when the restaurant was known as Edmunds. It was very good then and it is really good to see that as Maribels the restaurant continues to provide excellent quality food, brilliantly presented at reasonable prices.

I am going there with my family;y for Christmas 2019, therefore it is with no surprise that I very strongly recommend Maribels.

Extremely disappointed, Michelin style price without the substance to back it up. A few gimmicks with the presentation don’t make up for the bland food. I’m amazed at the other 5 star reviews of this place, there must be a lot of people out there who don’t know any better if they think this is the hight of fine dining.

My partner and I enjoyed a lovely birthday lunch at Maribel.
The décor and ambience was really classy and relaxing. The food was beautifully presented and the portion sizes were more generous than similar restaurants. It was some of the most delicious food I've had in a long time and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend!

A nice restaurant with really good food - for foodies and those looking for a cosy place for lunch of dinner. I was there on business and really enjoyed my experience. The portions could have been bigger, I guess: my three-course menu was just enough for a small dinner but not for someone who had skipped lunch;) Bread was not freshly baked, which should have been the case. The restaurant accommodated our last minute request for gluten and shell fish free menu, which was great!

Simply stunning food which at moments showed moments of true culinary genius. A dish as simple as asparagus, pink grapefruit, and hazelnut, elevated to dizzying heights of flavour. Turbot that celebrated this wonderful fish, veal that was succulent and sweet, desserts that were dreamlike - and every course accompanied perfectly by expert wine choices. Fine dining at its best, by one of Birmingham's best chef's. The return of Richard Turner's Michelin star cannot be far away.

Being lunchtime, very quiet, apparently very busy in evening. Food superb, canapés divine. Fish course of raw scallop one of best I have ever had. Main course of veal, beautifully cooked. Given quality, three courses (you can have more) and wine, excellent value at £70 per head. Downside is negotiating the pigs ear of Centenary Square from the city side, which is a building site. Well worth the effort Howe.
