We showed up without reservation. We walked in the restaurant is empty. No one is there. The waitress is just sitting down. Others are sitting in the hammocks. Waitress asks do you have a reservation? No! Well there are signs all over saying call for reservations. I say sorry I did not see that. Do you need a reservation so... More

We had a recommendation to try Murphys. We were staying on the 7 mile beach and it was further away than most restaurants on the cliffs but was worth it. The food was really good! Our only complaint was they didn't serve wine which we enjoy when we are having a nice supper. They did have beer. The staff was... More

Cute little place with a friendly staff. We were wanting shrimp cocktails and they told us they were out. So we said that we would just drink a beer. Since we were not going to eat anything else, they managed to make some shrimp cocktails. Hmmmm, what was up with that?

Best lobster I've ever had. My wife had jerk lobster and I had grilled - both were phenomenal. 3 other friends had lobster and all agreed. Another friend has fish that was prepared perfectly as well. We did call ahead earlier in the day to reserve a table which I'd suggest to do. Also location is easy to get to... More

I had the jerk lobster with pumpkin mash and rum punch. I'm a spice wimp so I kept it on the low end of the 10 point rating scale. All 8 of our dinners were tasty and reasonably priced. Our server Candy was very helpful but she's sad her last name isn't Murphy.

Best Meal in Negril by far. It's been 28 years since my last visit (too long!!). Murphys is a wonderful place to visit for world class food and true Jamaican vibes and experience. You can easily walk here from Ricks Cafe. As other reviewers wrote the food is delicious and absolutely beautifully plated. I highly recommend this restaurant. Had a... More

Best lobster i've ever had. Murphy is my cousin & he talked a good talk so i challenged him 2 deliver. I'm a very fussy eater but his presentation alone had me sold. One day i had the devil chicken which was so tender it was dropping off the bone , full of flavors. Another day i had the lobster... More

The chef here really knows food and takes great pride in his restaurant. The deviled chicken my husband had the first night , we were there ,was exceptional. The bammy had a nice hint of either mace or nutmeg which was a nice compliment to the dish , the mashed pumpkin and sautéed vegetables were also terrific. We joined them... More

For our annual visit to Negril it took two days to get us to Murphy's. Murphy as the same cheerful, friendly, fun and fabulous chef he has always been. His professionalism and his cooking skills are not to be beaten. His new Vulcan range is totally amazing. The food came out fast and perfectly cooked. We are used to waiting... More
