Enjoying Merry beach caravan park and the relaxation that comes with chilling on NSW south coast. Merry street is now doing gourmet takeaways - we tried the flathead and linguine/risotto on two consecutive nights and were very pleased with the portions and the flavours! Also,...really friendly service from the ordering staff/manager. Highly recommended as better than your usual fish n chip takeaway - restaurant quality food in takeaway containers!More

We had a lovely lunch here. Not too busy on a Thurs. The pate, salmon special and the seafood board were all delicious! There are great wines by the glass and the service is just lovely and personal. Would recommend for sure.

What a beautiful lunch experience! Celebrating my husbands birthday with family recently was an absolute joy. Allison managed our booking online in a timely manner and was very accommodating when we postponed to a day later due to weather. The fresh seafood was amazing, a...lovely experience all round. Thanks Allison, we will be back! 🎂🥂More

Alison, was amazing. My mum celebrated a birthday without the family due to COVID border restrictions and she went out of her way to make her night special and sent me photos all night. I cannot recommend this restaurant more, their customer service is second...to none. Mum loved the food. Thanks Alison, you rock!More

Truly five star food and presentation. We booked for a midweek lunch 2 weeks ago on the way back from Morilya and were seriously impressed with the fresh seafood at this relaxing venue. The bbq octopus was the best we’ve had from around the world....The seafood platter was generous and wide selection. Staff were friendly, welcoming and efficient. We took the opportunity to thank and compliment the chef.More

Visited Kioloa for the weekend and went to merry street restaurant for dinner on the Friday evening. The food was amazing as was the cocktails. My husband is a ceoliac and the chef advised him the chips were not gluten free so he went out...of his way to replace with potatoes. The staff were very helpful especially the young waitress who did a wonderful job. It was so good we went back the next night highly recommend .More

Have been here a few times now. Food consistently good, staff are always lovely, and it has a very cute and calm feel about it of an evening. Open hours are very limited though, and aren’t always as advertised. Make sure to call ahead to...avoid this problem, they even once stayed open for us as they were going to close early on a night we had planned to go (very happy we called and very happy they were willing to wait for two lone customers almost an hour after their last ones had left). We go just about every time we visit the area, mostly only hindered by said opening times. Best restaurant in town.More

A beautiful hidden gem of the NSW south coast. The staff were extremely friendly and the service was exceptional. The fresh seafood board was to die for and the salmon special was the best Salmon we’ve had. We will definitely be returning and recommending to...all our friends and family.More
