Don't let the decor put you off! Yes, it looks like you are walking into a stranger's front room, but I've always been warmly welcomed and looked after. The fish soup starter is a yummy, hot, thick broth with croutons, grated cheese and sour cream on the side to add in to taste. And everytime I've ordered a fish dish... More

Bland and poorly cooked. Shells in crab salad and dry over cooked fish. Both of us left feeling horrible after eating here. Never again

We went as a family, the place needs a total revamp as it looks tired, cluttered and shabby. Even though the place was almost empty, we were rushed by waiting staff to finish. Won't be going back. Overpriced, unimaginative presentation of boring looking food, I could have done better at home.

Took a chance as it was a wet day after seeing this restaurant on Cowes week , really made welcome lovely fish soup, cod and salmon but the deserts are worth a visit alone. Great kids menu, would recommend that you book for evenings although Cowes looks sleepy through the day it comes alive in the evening. Try it ...we... More

I liked the look of this restaurant when walking by so took a chance and popped in. It's a small place so on Fridays and Saturdays I would recommend reserving a table. The menu is quite varied and the staff are nice. The service was a little slow which was surprising as I was there mid week ad it was... More

Nice buzz, good fresh food, and friendly service. The king prawns in chilli and lime were delicious as was my husbands squid.

It doesn't necessarily look that appealing from the street, but on a Sunday evening in Cowes we were just glad to find a restaurant open. Bizarrely empty and closed up little town! The set menu is really good value at £18 for two courses and the main menu and specials had great options too. The five of us had a... More

Absolutely gorgeous meal, fresh, tasty and great atmosphere. Really well looked after and I would certainly class this as the best restaurant in Cowes. Thank-you very much for a great evening!!! The staff were superb and very accommodating.

Should have gone on first impressions. Very tired restaurant, but no excuse for a miserable waitress. Food grim. Sorry will not be returning

Murray's has been a favourite for years, excellent, well-cooked seafood at sensible prices. It looks a bit old fashioned and the service isn't slick but don't be put off, it's well worth a visit.
