Atmosphere good. Location convenient and charming as ever. Had lunch with fixed time available before catching the ferry. Fish soup a disappointment. The rest ok.

We wanted somewhere a bit special to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary and mentioned this in passing when booking a few days beforehand. How lovely that this had been noted and we were treated accordingly. Thank you so much. Our meal was very good and the friendly young waiter added to the overall experience. Not often able to have Dover... More

Murrays has recently gone through a bit of a transformation with the interior and exterior having a spruce up. Luckily the food has not been touched and it is still absolutely gorgeous. Awesome fish dishes but, as my husband doesn't eat fish, we've also tried the steak and they are awesome too.

We arrived late in the mid afternoon at the end of the lunch shift and the last guests were leaving, but we were accommodated and both ordered seafood platters. They were fine fresh fish and we chatted to the owner to learn all about the 40 odd years the restaurant has been established. We accompanied the food with an excellent... More

Right in the centre of town. Good set-menu with some decent wine. Quiet on a Friday night, but plenty of seating available.

Visited this quaint,cosy and intimate little restaurant on 22nd September whilst staying in Southampton after looking at the reviews. We took the passenger ferry across to Cowes and it was so worth it. Was amazing. We had lobster, crab, scallops and sea bass that had been caught in Bembridge that morning and delivered at lunchtime. It wasn't cheap but was... More

Only staying one night in Cowes and wanted to taste some real seafood. It's easy to miss it and walk on by but stands out from most other seafood restaurants I have been in. Interesting choices and not too dear. Excellent service and with a smile always helps. Food was excellent, light and tasty with superb sauce to compliment the... More
