We stopped by Murphy's for one beer while walking on the Malecan boardwalk. We didn't have any food so I can't comment on that. The staff was excellent and we had full beers before needing to ask. The band that played this past weekend (Thurs, Fri, Sat) was awesome. I unfortunately didn't catch the name - but it was 3... More

We stopped in for a Black and Tan for a change of pace. Ended up staying awhile as the staff were so friendly and then a rock band played. We sampled some other drinks and all were good. Had the best hot wings of my life here. Good location on the malecon.

It overlooks the Malecon, which is why I went there, but the food was nothing special. The burger was overdone & dry. Not worth going in a row of restaurants.

We stopped in on a whim while walking the Malecon. Great people watching and the drinks were yummy. We wound up going back for dinner a few days later - so yummy! We had nachos, chicken tenders and a meat/potato souffle thing. They were also going to have a live 80s band there but it wasn't starting until late. Kudos... More

Nothing wrong with the place. Had couple of coronas looking out to the sea from the balcony. A good place to people watch. Staff Friendly, kind and helpful. Needed abit of background music and few more people inside to get abit more of a atmosphere. Was around midday, if your after a place for a quick drink with good views... More

Came with my wife, only had a drink but the menu looked spot on traditional English/Irish dishes and the ambiance was spot on just like an Irish pub in Spain.
