About
Founded in early summer 2014, the restaurant's origins lie in Le Marais, Paris. Weekends spent propping up the area's cocktail bars and small plate restaurants of Paris' 4th Arrondissement nurtured a desire to create somewhere in which small plates and well-made drinks could be enjoyed in equal measure. The menu is designed with emphasis on sharing, made up of small plates inspired by the food we love to cook. Maray is a small plate and cocktail restaurant. Come with your partner, in a group, or pull up a bar stool order Manhattan and listen to Prince.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wow! 😮 Amazing explosions of flavours. I’m veggie, hubby isn’t! Both very well catered for and equally enjoyed the beautiful, freshly prepared food. Definitely recommend. Lovely service and atmosphere. Absolutely full to the brim! Thank you very much. It’s my birthday and Liverpool won the...cup! How does it get any better than this? 😀More

This was something else. I sat at the bar as was travelling solo - ordered boquerones to whet the appetite. Then the chickpeas dopiqza and the seabass with coconut red lentils and fennel. The whole thing was magic on the pallet. All the time. Overseen...by great staff and I could watch everything coming in and out of the kitchen. I was tempted to order more when I saw the hummus and the rump steak. Just great unforgettable food. I walked out after all the above and a carafe of good Negromaro for less than 49 quid. A great spot. Loved it and can’t wait to come back.More

Visited the first time for the lunchtime menu, £17.50 for 3 small plates plus we added a rice dish with onions from the main menu. Fried chicken, goats cheese, cauliflower bhajis and falafel were memorable but our decision to order the rice/onions dish backfired as...it was awful, far too salty, dry and chewy.More

Beautiful food, excellent knowledgeable staff, well worth a visit. Don't expect big portions , these are small plates, but they will leave you satisfied. Recommendation is to 2 to 3 plates per person. Personally I feel you need 3. I had the sea bass, lamb...and sweet potatoes, all wonderful and packed with flavour, to drink I had the peddler - light and refreshing, for those who dislike sweet cocktails. Certainly worth a visit if you are in Liverpool. I will return.More

The Christmas specials are here! Maray have worked their magic on sprouts, roast potatoes and pigs in blankets. We had all three together with the braised carrots and sea bass from the main menu. All dishes were bursting with flavour and complemented each other really...well. We'll hopefully get back before Xmas to have the whole lot again!More

Great food, lovely atmosphere and convenient location in centre of Liverpool. 90% vegan menu but fish and meat dishes available. Really tasty Middle Eastern inspired dishes. Nice kick of spice. Small plates to share allows you to try lots of dishes.

Hi went to Maray Bold street pre concert on a rainy night midweek . Lovely welcome and staff had erected a curtain to shield customers from the weather . Menu is limited which I like as your sort of guaranteed freshly prepared food . Wine...list is simple but the list reflects the menu . Staff were boss always about so no waiting for more drinks or the bill . It’s a very cozy restaurant but again to my liking . Have no complaints too evening. 👍More

We had gone to a concert at the Philharmonic and were expecting to have dinner afterwards, but were dismayed to discover that everywhere we went in that area had stopped serving food or were closing (at just 9pm!) We walked back down towards Bold Street...which we knew was lined with restaurants. The places we passed along the way that looked promising were also closing, it seemed. When we got to Bold Street we happened across Maray, a review of which by Jay Raynor I had come across when looking for places in Liverpool for our visit there. It was a lucky find; not only were they still serving, but the food and service were both excellent. We had a plate of pickles and dips, a transcendental rump steak, some flatbread, butter beans and leeks, braised carrots, and the fries with hummus and zhug, along with two delicious house cocktails. I'd go back any time, with pleasure....More

Outstanding experience. Loved the ambience, staff, service and food. Just the right size menu with something for everyone - and the tastes were superb. I can totally recommend the Disco Cauliflower. I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to everyone.

As Malpoet said this is not a halal restaurant. If you are happy to eat vegetarian dishes in an non halal restaurant though you will find a good range of dishes.

3 dishes is enough but I've had 4 plenty of times. Parking on Bold Street isn't great before 1800 but there is parking on Heathfield Street at Secure for only £1 per hour.
