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.

We were in Hobart and needed a drink before dinner. We saw Mures at the dock and it looked cozy and inviting. Great food and local wines and a good selection beer available. We had some drinks overlooking the waterfront - just lovely!
Awesome service and lovely staff made for a really good experience !

So good. The oysters were beautiful. The Fish and lamb dishes were cooked with so much care and so well presented.
And the location on that waterfront is very,very good.
We have been here many times before but on this chilly Hobart day - after a wonderful visit to MONA - Mures was at its best.
Recommended.

After our day at MONA, we were hungry for a late lunch/early dinner & Mures Upper Deck was the perfect spot. Our waitress was attentive, we ordered a bottle of our favourite Cofield Sparkling Shiraz (great wine list), started with oysters galore & finished with seafood laksa (which defeated me) & lamb cutlets (which satisfied him). We couldn't fault or meal, service or ambience.

Overpriced.
Overrated.
Off putting taste with the "fresh scallops"

Visited for the expectation it was going to be good.
We ordered a few entrees to play around with.
(Way overpriced for what they served)
Scallops w sausage - scallops had a funny taste as if they were off

Lobster tail with mashed peas etc- smallest portion ever. 2 tiny bite size pieces - $48..

Fresh Oysters- meh

Mains we had.
Seafood Laksa- again the seafood was not the freshest and had an off putting taste. Bland, missing spices and definitely too creamy- not an authentic laksa

Steak- ordered medium rare- came out close to well done.
But was pretty nice actually haha

Service was good, even though the food was slow to come out.

Would probably not recommend.
Save your money and your stomach

Dear goodbloke24,
We are sorry that you didn’t enjoy your meal at Mures Upper Deck.
We pride ourselves on the very freshest seafood much of which is caught on our own Fishing vessel, “Diana”
We reject completely that you got ill from our seafood, we have not had any other claims of sickness.
The Seafood Laksa is our most popular dish of which we get consistently positive feedback.
Our pan seared Tasmanian Scallops with white bean and porcini puree sells for $25
Our Tasmanian Southern Rock Lobster comes with wombok, walnut & yuzu dressing and pea puree and wasabi which is a delicacy with the $42 price clearly marked.
We find that despite the price for this highly prized seafood it is still popular and well received.
Most of our entrees are priced around the $20 mark which is reasonable considering that Mures Upper Deck is a multiple award winning seafood restaurant with an emphasis on sustainably caught Australian seafood.
Again we are sorry that you did not enjoy your experience.
Please feel free to contact us if you wish to discuss this further.
Regards
Mures Upper Deck

Spent a few days in Hobart, Mures looked great from the outside, so booked a table for 2 dinner date with wife, treated like 2nd rate customers, rushed through a very ordinary quick nite, the manager just needed his face slapped, pathetic, would never go back even if it was free.
