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

My husband and I absolutely loved Mur Mur! It is in my Top 10 Meals ever! Everything was fantastic from the engaging staff, fantastic craft cocktails, amazing starters (the tomato salad to die for!) creative and absolutely delicious entrees and deserts. The staff was so...attentive and genuinely cared about making our evening memorable. Can’t recommend it enough. We will be back for sure! Thank you Mur Mur staff! Well done!!More

Vegan / vegetarian options! I was very happy to see so many options on the menu, and knowing it is all organic fresh Mexican ingredients made it that much more enjoyable. The highlights of the meal included the pistachio beats and the fresh tomatoes and...crusted Parmesan cheese appetizer. Wow the juicy tomatoes popped in your mouth !!!!! I loved the drink “the woman” and “mur mur.” It was pouring rain when I went but we still sat outside, the top fully covered enjoying a wonderful meal with great service. Originally I found this place on yelp because wonderful reviews, definitely book ahead because it was busy when I came so I was happy I had a reservation!More

OMG. My son considers this one of the five best meals of his life and I’m hard pressed not to put it in my top 10. Everything was spot on. I started with the spicy Paloma and he had the Madera del Mar. The bar...serves up a range of citrus-centric offerings that pair phenomenally with the food, and these were no exception. We followed up with The Woman and the Don Nacho, which were built around local Mayan peppers. We started with the Vallidolid potatoes and chorizo. Well balanced, tasty, creamy, a take on a classic that worked well. Pork Salpicon Tostada, which was simply mind blowing., with black bean cream, tomato puree, and habanero paste. The blend of heat and flavor was gorgeous. For our main courses, we had the grilled octopus and the Yucatan pork. I do not think I have ever had octopus done this well. Soft, flavorful, with salsa macha and salsa verda and mirliton squash with nopales salad. The last of these was unique and unlike anything else available in Tulum. The pork with sikil pidik salsa and legumes and local sautéed chard was amazing. Don’t ask me what some of those ware other than amazingly tasty. The pork has a just insane crust, more like the best Texas Barbeque. Not any of these dishes was anything like what I’ve had anywhere before. Many places in Tulum talk about being Mayan influenced, but this is the first that took that seriously. The desserts were also of that realm, with a grilled plaintain roasted in its skin with bitter chocolate sorbet and caramel sauce. The other dessert we had was a roasted aquash with candied pumpkin seeds and fresh shaved unsweetened coconut. Neither was remotely typical or remotely like I’ve had anywhere else. We then went back for lunch, and had a trio of tacos – pork belly, shrimp ad fish –ad each was perfect, the fish taco, the shrimp and pork belly were bursting with richness and heat. That said, for reasons I cannot fathom, they don’t open for lunch until 3PM, which is their single huge mistake. Open earlier! This is where you MUST eat when in Tulum.More

The food here was great, no complaints. Unfortunately, the service was not. We got the wrong dish put on our table as one of the entrees that we ordered. We expressed to the waitress that it wasn't what we ordered and we asked for the...entree that we did order (squash). She still charged us for the entree we did not order and refused to take it off the bill. This was very unfortunate and left us not wanting to come back to this restaurant.More

Best restaurant we've been in Mexico so far! Just absolutely amazing! The manager was great to explain the whole concept of the restaurant and then the service from Max was suberb! He explained each dish in details and how mayan ingredients or techniques were applied...to it. Then the food... Mayan or inspired by and all so well thought, surprising and unbelievable! Beautiful and all the flavours were just amazing! The best pork dish I've ever had in my life! Unfortunately we only found it on our final days, but we'll absolutely come back next time we're here! Note: we've also been to Hardwood and this was by far better considering environment, service and food!More

WOW!!! I am literally writing this review as I sit in a swing at the bar at Mur Mur with my husband drinking our favorite cocktails - a Spicy Paloma and a Don Nacho - the 2 best drinks on the menu in our opinion!...We I stumbled across this gem our first night in Tulum after having dinner across the street and have been back every single night. Not only are their cocktails amazing, but we saw the outdoor fire ovens they cook their food in and scrapped our expensive dinner plans to eat here on night #2. Insanely delicious!! We tried the roasted beets (a must order!!!), squash tacos, shrimp tacos and the pork belly (a definite must try). Ask for a side of fresh warm homemade tortillas with the pork and a carajillo (a mexican version of an espresso martini) for dessert. We’ve been here now 5 nights and may have to eat here again before we leave. :))) ENJOY!!!More

We wanted to go to Hartwood but it was closed. It was pouring rain so we didn't want to go far and we saw the inviting open hearth at this restaurant. We didn't even know what kind of food. But we were treated to some...excellent cocktails and fantastic Baja style elevated Mexican food. The squash tacos were recommended and we loved them. The fish tacos and short ribs were also excellent. We'll be back!More

We visited this restaurant back in January 2020 and we came with a big group.. we ordered a lot of different dishes.. the highlight was the Lamb Chops.. EVERY DISH was AMAZING.. PERFECT.. the portions were what you would expect when paying a premium price.....perfect. After eating at ARCA, Hartwood, GITANO, Rosa Negra, Taboo and other restaurants.. this restaurant was our favorite due to the recipes, the dishes offered and portions sizes..BUT it's gone down hill.. like a very deep steep hole into the darkest cenote that the most experienced divers wouldn't go to.. We returned in August 2020 BEYOND excited..and we were displeased to see they removed the lamb chops from the menu because of the cost to produce it.. odd because the price would justify the cost.. Furthermore, we ordered their salads and other dishes and wow.. their portions completely changed... extremely small portions.. After spending over $100 USD.. we were still starving.. We brought it up with the manager and he confirmed the dishes had become smaller due to price issues.. unfortunately, this restaurant went from our FAVORITE IN ALL OF TULUM.. to mediocre... not only because of the portions but the recipes used.. however, the manager and staff are AMAZING!! The staff earns the credit but.. unfortunately.. the whole package comes with the experience and the food. I wish they would go back to their roots... =( MUR MUR you were #1 but now we're not sure.. won't return unless they changed back to their roots.. :( with all due respect..More
