Have been to Mercers a few times now and have never been disappointed. The service and quality of the food stacks up against and indeed beats many ‘big name ’restaurants I’ve been to. The seasonal menus are clearly well thought out and prepared to showcase the quality of the produce rather than any pretentions. This makes for delicious flavour combinations... More

The food can only be described as superlative; each course carefully matched to an excellent wine. The service was also outstanding and we all delighted in the expert descriptions of the food and the wine that was presented to... More

We have dined at Mercers on several occasions usually for special celebrations. The service is always excellent, the food outstanding- beautiful flavours and fresh. We can never go past the dancing prawns, and at our most recent visit our party had lamb, duck and salmon all of which were amazing.

My husband and i celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at Mercers restaurant, a gift arranged by our children. We had the most enjoyable evening and the dinner was superb. We even got happy anniversary piped in chocolate on our dessert platter. My daughter told the staff to make sure we could order anything on the menu including the wine list.... More

Booked in for a birthday lunch with the family. The menu and wine lists both have a good variety of options. There is also a degustation menu with matched wines, which looked great. I had the dancing prawn entrée, which I must say was the best prawn dish that I have ever had. The boys had baked beetroot with a... More

This is our go to restaurant for special occasions. We were there on Saturday evening to celebrate my wife's birthday. Ute always has a friendly smile and time for a quick chat, no matter how busy. The front of house service is always friendly, attentive and efficient and the food is top notch. The menu is varied with plenty of... More
