“Lovely little restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Really pleased with our choice for the evening. We knew that the restaurant was fully booked but being the first to walk into an absolutely silent restaurant is always a bit awkward. Some gentle music might be a good idea.
Food was delicious, wine was very good too. Service slick, but didn't feel at all rushed.
Only comment I would say was, when I asked what the Trio of Chocolate Dessert was, I would expect a better answer than: it's three chocolate desserts!

“2 Sittings!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

If like us you do not like being rushed or having a late meal Murray's is not the place for you as they have two sittings.
They also ran out of the wine we had all ordered!
Service was good but we will not be going back I am afraid.
If you do visit this establishment and do not mind two sittings make sure you are in the front of the restaurant which has a calmer feel about it.

“Very cosy fish restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Very good fish and seafood menu. The service was quick, the menu varied and tasty, from the starters to the dessert and the wine. The restaurant does not open before 19.00 hours, and it is advisable to book beforehand, as it is a rather small place and tends to fill up very quckly.

“worth a visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

A few years ago we went to this restaurant about once a month.
we went again in june and found that it had gone down hill.
I would like to think it was a one off, so give it a go.
