Had heard about this restaurant on a Liverpool podcast and read the Jay Rayner review so wanted to check out whilst on a weekend break.
Lovely restaurant, great service and most importantly excellent food. Will certainly be back next time we're in Liverpool.

We loved the vegetarian offerings at this restaurant, very inventive and tasty. Interesting wines by the glass. Excellent service. Room a bit cramped and noisy, but it didn't spoil the evening.

My wife and I and another couple enjoyed the food immensely. You will struggle to find a fault in the food. Creative ingredients + pleasing presentation = a happy evening out. The staff was friendly and knowledgable. Everyone working seemed to take pride in the restaurant as a whole. The cocktails looked quite fancy too, but I was driving. Next time! We are guaranteed to return.

Excellent food. Sometimes the tapas dishes don't look so appetising but always very tasty. Unusual mix of flavours, ie green beans with strawberries. We ate early and the food came possibly too quickly, and we felt pressure to eat it all before it went cold. Overall a great dining experience.

Really enjoy coming to this restaurant, it has vibrant atmosphere but enough space for intamacy if you need it. Great selection for veggies and meat eaters. Service very good and delivered with a positivity/enthusiasm. The restaurant is a small plate/tapas facility and good value for money

Excellent food and service. Had a late lunch on Saturday 20th August and it was fab all round. Polite and friengly service throughout.
The cost was only £59.00 for six dishes, 2 cocktails and 2 beers. For a meal of this quality that is outstanding value.
The cauliflower us worth the hype, but all the dishes we ate were fabulous. The Datk and Stormier dark rum cocktail was ace as well. Get yourself down there.

I've eaten at Maray quite a few times and they never disappoint. The service is always quick and cordial. The food arrives as it is cooked, so it is always fresh and gorgeous.
The standard of cooking is unsurpassable, imaginative and and innovative. There's a friendly, urban feel about the place. Intimate yet buzzy, relaxed yet vibrant and always worth the visit. Nice range of wines and cocktails.
Certainly one of my very favourite places to meet up with friends, and the conversation always ends up centered around the food.

Slightly less focused cooking than during my first visit when the execution of the dishes was superb. I wondered if that was because we came at lunchtime and there were fewer customers. I love the restaurant and the service was (and is always) superb. It's a huge plus to have it in Liverpool in Bold Street and I will certainly return.
