Be prepared for a small and simple restaurant packing an amazing amount of flavor in your meal!! Each dish was super fresh and the flavors were amazing!! I had a grilled snapper that was so light that it practically melted as I ate it. Delicious!! Some of the menu might not be available when you go, but know that is... More

My fellow travelers have been to Jamaica many times so based upon their reviews of Murphy's, I expected a good meal. What I did not expect: The chef overheard us discussing the menu. He came to our table and talked options with each of us. Based upon this collaboration, each of us had a unique meal prepared. We were thrilled... More

If youre looking for good food in Negril go to Murphy's. That's basically all that is to say. It has a nice chef, good cook and an easy athmosphere. Check it out! For our 9 days stay we tried about six different restaurants but always came back to Murphy's. So in total we had including breakfast around 7 meals at... More

First off the food is unbelievably good. I'm a foodie and very picky and every bite was an explosion of flavor. I had the devil chicken and my husband ordered the grilled lobster. Both were fantastic as were the sides, pumpkin sweet potato mash and callaloo. Seriously have not had better lobster in 5 star restaurants back in the US.... More

We were recommended to try the food by the owner of countryside tours while at the appleton tour. Caught the cab to the west end to arrive at a little quaint yes cozy spot, a hidden gem! Sat down and looked at all the great options there were on the menu and got advice on what all is good and... More

We visited Murphy's last night for the second time. We were greeted by Chef Leneil with a hug. He prepared the lobster pasta and shrimp scampi for us. Both dishes were painstakingly crafted and almost too beautiful to eat! They were both phenomenal and our dinner was the highlight of our trip to Negril! ! After dinner, Chef Leneil joined... More

Little place on the side of the main road in the cliff end of Negril. Very friendly staff. Had the shrimp scampi which was delicious, not anything like the American version. Also had the grilled lobster and stewed chicken, very yummy, beautiful presentation, made with love by Murphy himself.

Amazing food and ambiance! The cleanest kitchen I have ever seen in my travels. Murphy is one of the best cooks in Jamaica. Ordered the grilled lobster, which would cost an arm and a leg in San Francisco, and I could not stop groaning from the flavors that melted in my mouth. Equally amazing was Murphy's curry shrimp, so fresh... More

Second morning in a row for breakfast at Murphy's. Awesome breakfast of eggs, fruit, toast and ham for today. Coffee is good, fresh and strong. Murphy is an amazing host. He showed us his kitchen (very clean), and even opened up to cook breakfast for us on Independence Day. We'll be back for dinner. We hear his friend is off... More
