This place had great reviews but our experience was a little disappointing. Service was slow and not good compared to our night at hartwood. Portion sizes are TINY. And EXPENSIVE. I did a lot of research and was disappointed with this place. We had a...couple vegans and the restaurant was out of 2 of the vegan options the night we were there. Portions were so small and none of us were satisfied. I recommend hartwood over this every time.More

Very original cuisine. Tasty. Friendly service. Good cocktails. At night, it is in the heart of busy Tulum, and in front of noisy Rosa Negra. Partygoers will enjoy. If you are looking for quietness, it will be more challenging

My wife and I were walking along the hotel zone road in Tulum looking for a spot for dinner. We checked a few places and talked with servers, and decided this one sounded the best, and we were not disappointed! We started with 2 cocktails...that were recommended by the waiter (who was courteous, and very knowledgeable) and was constantly making sure we had everything we needed. My drink was mezcal based, and had a good spiciness with the jalapeno and smoke from the mezcal. My wife's was a type of spicy Paloma, which was also really good and refreshing on a hot evening! We started with a few appetizers, and both were delicious. One was the squash, which had a great sauce and char. The highlight of the apps was the octopus. It had 2 pieces, perfectly cooked and the sauce again was so good and a perfect compliment to the flavor of the octopus. For the main and side, we had the whole roasted cauliflower and Mayan pork. The cauliflower was seasoned with a tamarind sauce and nuts, and this as well was so fresh, and cooked to perfection. The Mayan pork also had multiple sauces on the side, as well are large Mayan spinach pieces so you could make your own tacos. The pork was very tender, and again the freshness and flavors all were great! All of the food is made in wood burning ovens and you can see the cooks/chefs in action, so you know its all fresh.More

Should have read the previous reviews. My husband and I shared the tuna skewers and lamp chop appetizer followed by the pork in clay. Everything tasted fine, interesting mix of flavors. Hit me a few hours later and my husband early the next morning and...literally ruined our last day in Tulum. Couldn't leave the room with vomiting and diarrhea. This place should truly be closed down if this keeps happening.More

Food was a bit off the mark and service was weak. Plus I unfortunately got the runs later that night. Based on this single experience I wouldn’t recommend.

Cocktails here are great. Try the spicy Paloma! Staff is wonderful as well. Attentive and friendly. We tried the beets, the scallop, the octopus, and oven roasted cabbage (which was a special that night). Cabbage was the best thing and probably the only item I...would re-order, mostly because there were other interesting things on the menu. We didn’t get any of the main dishes so I can’t comment on those but the items we did get were very small portions. I recommend at least stopping here for a drink because the cocktails were seriously amazing !More

This might be the best meal I had in Tulum, and that's saying something. Mur Mur is a cozy restaurant, which was right near our hotel. We made reservations weeks in advance, just in case. My friend and I stuck to wine, and we went...through about 3 bottles of amazing Savignon Blanc. But my main course is what I keep dreaming about! I had pork baked in clay. When it was brought to my table, it was still in clay, and the server broke it up in front of me, then pulled it out into a plate layered with some additional spices, then added more flavorful spices, pickled jalapeno, and some other things I don't remember. And I got a stack of tiny warm tortillas, so I ate it as tacos. But it was one of the most amazing, flavorful things I have ever eaten! I want to go back to Tulum just to try that again! And service was fantastic, all through the evening (we were there for a while).More

Wow. Quite simply, this was one of the best dining experiences of my life. From the moment we were greeted by the hostess to the moment we took a cab home, my girlfriend and I were in awe of the service, the food and the...ambiance. The staff took incredible care of us: they gave tremendous recommendations for food, and we felt as if we were treated like close friends or family. And the food itself was simply some of the best that I had in my life. Each dish was a culinary masterpiece: we got the scallop ceviche (special), chocolate clams, cauliflower, and pork, and each dish simply blew us away. Nevertheless, I think we could have ordered entirely different dishes and still had one of the best meals of our life. We can't wait to visit again!More

My boyfriend and I had dinner here and it was absolutely fantastic. The food was thoughtfully and artistically prepared. Everything was delicious. The octopus was unlike any we had ever tasted, tender and it melted in our mouths. The service and atmosphere were genuine, welcoming...and unpretentious. We're looking forward to eating here again.More

After two nights in a row at party spots for dinner Mur Mur was a welcome oasis of mellow vibes where the food was the main focus. To those people claiming to be chefs who left awful reviews...Where were you a chef? The local penitentiary...cafeteria? Did you even taste the food? Seriously, this food was the best culinary experience of my trip to Tulum and one of the top ten of my life. The flavors of the potato-chorizo appetizer danced across our palettes and served as the perfect warmup for our main courses. The pork belly was braised to perfection and finished with crisp, crackling skin. Layering the pork on the house made, fresh tortillas with swiss chard, confit jicama and the pickled shallots created a flavorful bite complete with complex texture. Our waitress Christina timed the service of our second entree, the catch of the day, perfectly (which was no surprise as her service was attentive and personalized). The catch of the day was Grouper and expertly described by the manager Armando. The fish flaked apart with the touch of the fork and melted in our mouths. The cocktails were light, refreshing and delicious. We even had a fantastic coffee cocktail that was recommended as a little pick me up. Mur Mur was a fantastic experience and I highly recommend it if you’re looking for high quality cuisine and excellent service.More

The food was great here, typical Tulum fine dining, rustic meat and fish dishes with delicious sauces. Unfortunately everything else was just terrible. We were seated in a dark corner (not cozy dark, just dark) with two huge industrial fans on either side of our...table, making noise and really destroying what little atmosphere we had. Asked for the wine list: there isn't one, rather it's delivered verbally. Now if there's one thing you really don't want delivered verbally, it's a wine list. There are so many regions, vintages, vineyards, grape varieties, etc, it's a jungle, and you really want to know what you're ordering. And what about price? No prices were given for any of the wines, which wasn't an issue, since we didn't like the sound of any of them. Finally we realized that one of the girls at our table had ordered a glass of Prosecco at the bar, so we decided on Prosecco. "Sure! French Champagne?" was the reply. Same same, just infinitely more expensive. No, Prosecco, we said. Our server said he'd really recommend the French Champagne over the Prosecco. So would I, if all I cared about were my tips and not guest satisfaction. We replied that we'd already tried the prosecco, it was perfect, we'd like a bottle. Then he said he didn't have it by the bottle, only by the glass, which we pointed out was pretty much impossible, since a glass does come from a bottle, and which point he finally relented, and with a huge huff, went off to get our Prosecco. Now, before all this, once of the other girls at the table had ordered a glass of Prosecco. So of course he would cancel that glass order, since we were all drinking Prosecco fom the bottle, right? No of course not, since the goal here is not to make the guest happy, it's to rip you off as much as possible. One glass of Prosecco was promptly, delivered, and then the bottle, which was dumped on the table, and not served. Neither were any of the next 2 bottles, it was self-service apparently. And of course when it came to the tip, we said we'd leave cash and he refused, saying he wanted the tip on the card (because he knew he had delivered really bad service, and was worried we'd stiff him with cash). Overall, just a terrible experience, the worst of Tulum. Go to ARCA or BAK' instead.More
