This was our second visit to Merchant and this time we felt that the service was lacking and the restaurant lacked the overall atmosphere we had felt on our first visit a few years ago.

We started with shared entrees of prawn special and Crab with artichoke hearts, both were delicious. For mains we had the gnocchi, which was OK without being amazing and the Bigoli "Neri" chilli crab, this was delicious but quite a small serve. The standout was the Tiramisu that we shared for dessert.

All in all its a good restaurant for a quiet relaxed night when staying at the Intercontinental.

I recently stayed at the intercontinental and found the restaurant conveniently located. I enjoyed the local cuttlefish and scallop risotto. Very good quality, very tasty and well priced. Would recommend particularly if staying at the hotel

I get used to being a second class citizen in restaurants since I'm gluten and dairy intolerant.

That was NOT the case here. I received GF bread when my friends received their bread and enjoyed a beautiful meal.

The first time I actually enjoyed being in a restaurant for ages - thank you!
