Have been here many times, and it never disappoints. Really excellent value set menu of 2 or 3 courses, for lunch or dinner. Slightly more for dinner but still amazing value. Primarily fish and seafood, but meat options too, including an excellent rump steak. None of the dishes come at a price supplement including the steak and cheese board, which... More

A group of 10 of us went for dinner. The menu was a 2 or 3 course dinner but there were also lots of specials. The seafood was excellent and for those that wanted meat the steaks were great. Good service and a mov atmosphere made it a fun evening.

The three course lunch meal for 17.50 is of great quality and flavour. Good choice of fresh fish with some more expensive specials up to around 25 for a lobster main. Chilled decor but enough to make it feel like your eating at a decent place. Service was good and informal, as I like it. Would recommend without question.

Another wonderful visit to the best seafood restaurant in Cowes (actually probably the Island). Freshly cooked amazing seafood with a selection of non-seafood as well you cannot fail any aspect of this wonderful place. Warm welcoming staff mean excellent service and priced incredibly reasonably for the quality and quantity of the meals that they create. Why eat anywhere else..?

This was a return visit to Murrays after several years, and it didn't disappoint. It is a family run restaurant with a high standard of service. The menu focusses on seafood which is very reasonably priced. It is vital to book ahead at least a day in advance - this restaurant gets very busy.

We went to Murray's for dinner, granted it was a Thursday at 6:30pm. But the place was dead, it was a horrible atmosphere with no background music or anything to welcome you in. The food was nice but I've had better, not much variety for a seafood restaurant. Price wasn't too bad for what we had but the atmosphere just... More

We just wanted a simple lunch, found this fish restaurant, looked at the menu and went in. We were welcomed into this very small but lovely restaurant. The food is expensive but is beautifully served and presented. The main course was hake with ratatouille. This came with a side dish of veg and new potatoes. There is little to say... More

I loved the decor and layout, a fire burning in the grate, only 18 covers, asked if we had booked in a Tuesday eve, only 3 tables taken all evening. Polite but very quiet service, silence other than the thundering above the staircase we were sat under. 3 other diners whispered but we could hear each other in the deathly... More

The title above says it all. 4 of us went in with no booking on a Saturday night, place was busy but seats found, service prompt, food fresh, tasty, well presented and reasonably priced.
