“Fantastic food, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Our compliments to the chef and all the staff at this great restaurant. We stayed for a week in san vito lo capo and planned to try a different restaurant each night. To be honest we were rather disappointed with the first few - food was ok but not special and we felt that we were being rushed when we wanted to take our time over the meal. What a difference when we went to the Murphy restaurant. The fish was absolutely fantastic and the service was excellent, nothing was too much trouble. After a mediocre meal the next night we broke our rule and returned to the Murphy - we weren't disappointed and again had an excellent meal with excellent service. We took the advice of the waiter when ordering wine - he didn't select the most expensive on the menu - just a good wine that was perfect with our meal. We were able to take our time over the meal and didn't feel rushed. The decor is excellent and the meals are very good value. There are lots of restaurants to choose from in this town - don't miss this one.

“Superb service and excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

This restaurant has recently changed from a mere pub to pub & restaurant, so they have a lot to show to gain new customers. And they did great, when we visited them! We were 2 adults and a 11 month child. The menu was plentyful, portions big and they also tasted excellent. I heard that the cook is new, so he has a lot to show, and he managed it great. Also, the waiters and the headwaiter we extremely helpful and the portions were served with good timing. And, in addition, the price/quality relation was excellent. I warmly recommend this place to all visitors in San Vito lo Capo!
