Description: Jill & George Mure opened Tasmania's first licensed seafood restaurant, Mures Fish House, in 1973 in Hobart. When they struggled to source quality, fresh, local seafood, George went fishing. More than 40 years on, now owned by Will & Jude Mure, Mures remains a favourite of locals and visitors alike, located in Hobart's working fishing port at Victoria Dock. Mures' philosophy of fresh Australian seafood, sourced from sustainably managed fisheries still rings true from the ocean to the plate. With an international reputation for Tasmania's world class seafood, Upper Deck is the ultimate seafood experience in Hobart.Enjoy expansive dockside views and a la carte dishes, often changing daily with the freshest catch, featuring the finest seafood and very best local produce. Perfectly complement your meal with their award-winning exclusively Tasmanian wine list. Reservations are recommended. Upper Deck specialises in functions from private dining for small groups to large corporate events and are experienced in tailoring an event to suit your needs.

“Beware the bearded mussel”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

My husband and I went here on our honeymoon. I ordered the mussel entree ($15 for approx 15mussels) in some kind of white wine sauce. 8 of the mussels were served with the beards in tact.
When I told the waiter he returned with the chefs feedback that some mussels just come with beards.... That is absolute rubbish! I'm no chef but I have cooked mussels in the past and I know they need to be debearded before cooking!

Overall, an overpriced, wannabe fine dining experience where a backchatty chef does not appreciate customer feedback!

“Wonderful Seafood!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

What an amazing place to eat! Even though they were fully booked on a Friday night, and our booking had disappeared, they still fitted us in. We had the seafood platter to share, with half a lobster too - and it was more than plenty. Excellent service, delicious meal, and we even managed to squeeze in dessert...just!

This restaurant came highly recommended, and quite rightly so. Don't visit Hobart without coming here. But do check your bank balance first, as quality this good doesn't come cheap!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

Entree Oysters Natural - I ordered 6 and received 7, but they were very small not the usual size of Tasmanian oysters. Served with wedge of lemon, no sauce. Main course I had Fish of the day and although it was very tasty it was only luke warm. I would not rush back there.

“Not as bad a tourist trap as it looks.”
Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

We were walking around the shore after flying in to Hobart late in the day looking for seafood place and Mures was certainly obvious, so much so that I pegged it as a tourist trap, but we went in anyway because there was no obvious alternative. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the seafood (lobster and barramundi). Perhaps it is because it is family owned and has its own fishing boats.
