Stunning views from the patio. Great place for cocktails at sun set. The lobster order was 900 grams in weight! Excellent Wagyu steak!

The last night of our stay we dinned at Muraka Restaurant. The staff is very kind, attentive and making sure you have all you need to have a wonderful relaxing evening! The atmosphere is romantic, quiet, relaxed. You have a predinner drink while the sun is setting followed by a lovely meal outside on the candle lit deck. Perfect!

If you are at Mirihi, definitely visit Muraka , the restaurant is fabulous. The cocktail at the sunset paired with little canapés is a top-notch experience. No words about the dinners, doesn't matter if you are taking a set menu of choose a la carte - the food is exquisite. Can't recommend this restaurant enough.

A restaurant on the sea with a one of the best collection of wine on earth. Be there to enjoy the sunset and then the dinner. Words cannot explain the experience.

Even we had full board in the Mirihi resort, we decided to skip the Oriental buffet in the main restaurant and try the a la carte restaurant Muraka. From the lobby we were accompanied to the restaurant which is over the water. As the whole resort is a barefoot area, a waiter is cleaning your feet and we were seated... More

We came here a lot while staying on the island. Beautiful view, great atmosphere and awesome food ! The lobster feast is amazing. My 12-year son caught two big tuna fish. Chef made us tuna dishes in 3 ways. Staff are caring and friendly. We love dining and drinking at Murata !

The Muraka offers al-a-carte menus with the best quality ingredients cooked to absolute perfection. A highly recommended place to eat, though the price is high so it may be reserved for a special occasion! Make sure you go early evening, have cocktails which are served outside on the decking to watch the beautiful sunsets
