Contemporary Mexican
Mur Mur’s concept is based on the authenticity of Mexican cuisine. Focusing only in the resources offered by the Yucatan Peninsula and turning them into original and provocative dishes. With a deep respect for the environment and for the roots that identify the region, we looked for the best local providers and decided that the dishes offered will be seasonal, taking what nature and the environment can lend us at that specific moment.

Mur Mur came highly recommended by several friends who had previously been to Tulum - one of them a chef and Mur Mur did not disappoint! The food was delicious - must order pork tostadas to start! The service was excellent - genuine and warm without being overbearing. The overall experience was lovely and would recommend to anyone visiting Tulum

Firstly, service was superb. Friendly, knowledgeable, available, but not smothering. The food and flavor profiles aren’t as strong as they were at my last visit 2 years ago. At that time, I considered it one of the best meals anywhere, and definitely superior to Hartwood. So much so, I ate there two nights in a row. This visit, the flavors weren’t as interesting or complex. Pairings and flavor profiles seemed off. Example: a few fresh tomato halves served with the pulpo was unnecessary, and didn’t support the dish. It was still a good meal, but not what it once was. I hope Mur Mur finds again their magic for our next visit!

First off — wow! This is the place. My husband and I enjoyed our first meal in Tulum at this fantastic little spot. The ambience, the service — the food, those cocktails! Where to begin. I can not recommend this divine little date night destination enough. Easily our favorite meal in Mexico, Mur Mur is a delight, from start to finish. The lovely and attentive staff will seamlessly guide you through a brilliant menu, while you enjoy the very best of locally-sourced produce. Do yourself a favor, order the pork belly and finish the night with something decadent. Mur Mur does not disappoint!

While there was a slight hiccup with our reservation (for some reason they had us down for a party of 5 instead of 2...), we had a great experience. The ambiance is a bit more low-key than some of the flashier Tulum spots, but the service was fantastic. The ceviche, tomato salad and catch of the day were all incredible. Our cocktails were a bit on the side of too-sweet but we enjoyed them nonetheless.

Mur Mur is a Tulum gem! It's our favorite restaurant in Tulum. The design of the place is super cute. We loved the bar swing for a cocktail before sitting down for dinner. The dim lighting and the open wood fire kitchen makes the ambiance interesting and different. The scents and music roaming true the place are enjoyable. Most of all, the food was so delicious! The portions are just right not too big not too small, perfect for sharing. We strongly recommend to try the following dishes; the tomato salad, the short ribs and the chicken with brussel sprouts. The service was outstanding! Armando the manager tends to every little details and needs and he had great recommendations on which dish and wine to try. We loved it so much that we booked another reservation to dine for a second night at Mur Mur before we leave this magical place called Tulum! Mur Mur is a must try!

Walking into Mur Mur we were greeted by the manager who gave a little background about the restaurant. He was very kind as well as our server. The menu prices were expensive, as expected but a little overboard for what we were served. We knew that coming in and wanted to experience fine dining for one night as we were staying in Tulum. For 2 drinks, 1 shared appetizer, 2 entrees and a dessert it totaled around $110 US dollars. The appetizer was amazing, pork salpicon tostada, entrees fish of the day (wild mackerel) and pork belly were good, and dessert fudge brownie with passion fruit was okay. With the entrees we were given tortilla shells and that completed our meal, without it I think it would’ve been just okay. I also would not recommend spicy Paloma drink if you’re wearing white, the drink is a mess with some type of shavings coming down the cup for presentation, and they do not offer straws which is okay but it is almost impossible to drink out of the cup as well as all the ice and fruit (please use bigger cups). Overall, amazing environment (no cell service at all) and beautiful presentation. Not a place to eat every night while staying at Tulum, but a good experience overall.

We’ve been to quite a few restaurants like MurMur in different places around the world... nothing compared to the way my wife and I were treated, the atmosphere and the FOOD! We cancelled our dinner plans for our last night in Tulum and are going back for a 2nd time.

This is our second visit and I think it even surpassed our wonderful experience last year. Everything amazing. The chorizo and potatoes hands down the best dish of the week which included such heavyweights as Hartwood, Arca, Gitano, and Nu. Such a beautiful spot as well. Just love taking it all in. Thank you guys! Oh and the cutest dog greeting everyone was a hit with my kids.

The service was AMAZING, but just to warn you, it is VERY smokey. Everything is wood fired, so obviously there’s some smoke that billows. Food is some of the most delicious i’ve had in Tulum.

Amazing food, this place did not disappoint! The menu is small but the 3 dishes my boyfriend and I shared were exceptional! We had the pork tostada, the shrimp tacos, and the guacamole with pomegranate, all of them to die for. We’ll definitely be back before we leave Tulum!

The place was good, as well as food. We found it a bit too expensive though, especially wine. Appart from that we ordered wine which was totally spoiled, smelled and tasted like vinegar but somelier tried to convince that it is how it should be. As I have done many wine tastings, this argument didnt go through. However, it doesn’t add good to the place.

The service at Mur Mur was fabulous. The hostess, manager and wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The day of our visit they worked with our schedule and changed our reservation to later in the evening to accommodate our needs. We appreciated their flexibility and customer service orientation. The beet salad was unbelievably delicious and the turkey dinner melted in our mouths. The atmosphere was fun and upbeat with lively music playing from the 80s. The whole experience was very pleasant and we will definitely be back!

Great place. Outdoor sitting only, fantastic coctails and food. Super fresh fish and seafood, so fresh they run out often because they only get so many a day. They have a wonderful brick oven where they do their magic. Bar people are super knowledgable, they made me a great Aperol Spritz even though it wasnt in their bar menu.
Its a little warm, no a/c or indoor sitting, but worth it. Very sexy place.

Does not live up to any sort of hype. I get it, we're from NY and we have very good restaurants. I'm also a chef. It just wasn't good. We actually didn't even eat one of the entrees, which we ordered 3 because we like to splurge. I appreciate what they're trying to do, but for the chef to come from a top 50 Latin restaurant, it just didn't make sense. Forget the value or whatever. It just wasn't tasty, executed poorly, and was honestly just a big let down. Spend your money in the town. You can get 3 amazing dinners for the same price we paid for a bad one. Also, they are just trying to hard. "Mezcal old fashioned". Fine. The effort could have been placed otherwise to make a delicious cocktail, instead of a classic drink substituted with something local, that just didn't work. Sorry guys, but I have to be honest. Overall.. a big fat internet hyped let down.

The ambiance and food were nice and, we recommend a few dishes, which are reviewed and recommended heavily already on the Internet. Sadly, service distracted from the food. Our server had to be reminded more than 4 times to bring basics like water and the check. Off the clock employees seemed to distract from business with chatter and using precious power outlets for charging their phones. I get there isn’t much in terms of modern conveniences in Tulum but this is a business. Overall, our experience didn’t live up to the hype presented by the restaurant nor previous reviewers. The restaurants surrounding Hartwood might try for something different; they simply do not compare and perhaps are hurting themselves by attempting a similar format. Maybe there isn’t much to work with given the environmental restrictions but as a customer, it is really tough to not compare.

Definitely one of our favorite restaurants from our week in Tulum. We chose one of the “outside” tables, but they are basically all outdoors — ours was in the back garden, fairly isolated but we were totally fine with this because it allowed for easier conversation for our group of 4. The whole restaurant is stylish yet comfortable. Our waiter was easy-going and he had great suggestions for us regarding the menu and other restaurants he recommended in Tulum. Food was FANTASTIC. Really enjoyed the whole experience.

Unfortunately, the service was very bad so our experience at Murmur was a bit disappointing. We didn’t get our drinks before the entree and 2 minutes after we finished it, we had our main course... so bad ! The waiter was taking care of other table (choosing the one with budget) and didn’t care less about us. The food was good and the decor/ambiance is exceptionnel !
