We were so surprised by the quality and quantity of the food tucked away amongst the trees in a very private location with a superb view into the distance. Will definitely be back for their change of menu in winter.
Perfectly understated atmosphere. Staff friendly and attentive. Chef happy to amend food for my wife who can’t eat grains. Grazing plates with great variety - just the right amount. Highlight of our trip to the Bellarine Peninsula.
Very welcoming staff on arrival. Peaceful location creates a relaxing dining experience. Superb food. Will definitely go again. A great local experience on the Bellarine Peninsula.
Loved the outlook from the restaurant over the olive grove. The service was excellent and the food delicious and beautiful presented Certainly a wonderful experience and look forward to returning again
Four of us had an excellent degustation dinner. One of the group had some dietary restrictions. Merge catered for her without missing a beat or making her feel uneasy. We’ll be back. RB
The food was superb, the staff and Atmosphere over looking the olive grove was wonderful. Second time and will definitely be going back. Thank you
We had a wonderful lunch experience from the beautiful views to local wine and most importantly the food! The service was first class and we will definitely be back!
This is a beautiful place serving excellent and innovative food. I could do without the background music though. The service was casual and attentive and super friendly to. accomodate our dietary requirements.
From greeting at the door and throughout the service it was great experience. The food and flavors very different from the traditional glazing tables. Overall excellent.
From our arrival greeting, to the food and lovely service we received from both the waitress and front of house, we could not fault Merne. Highly recommend
Great views and hospitality from the team! Food was outstanding- favourites were the kangaroo and pork! We had the 4 course menu and left absolutely stuffed.
The food was fresh, light and really tasty. The dishes were innovative and the service was excellent. We were pleasantly surprised by everything. Highly recommended.
Fresh produce served in a thoughtful& interesting manner. Everything was deliciously light & innovative. Reasonably priced for the quality of food and service
Tucked away in a nice spot, beautiful views and welcoming service. Food was superb, fine dining. We chose the 2 course meal and it was plenty. We will definitely be back.
A very pleasant lunch which we throughly enjoyed friendly staff and nice view,we would return.
I would like to see 3 Courses of all and not 4 Courses ! I think the in between 2 & 4 - 3 Courses would be the answer! A wonderful variety of food and presentation - I would like to see the coffee included in the price of the Menu's - Even if the price was included in the price of the 2 Course or the 4 Course - I believe it is in the interest of the Restaurant - people don't like to pay extras - No one ever notices if Coffee is included in the Course Price! Constructive criticism!
Prospective patrons need to understand that there is only the choice of two degustation menus, no a la carte. This did not bother us as we knew in advance.
A little costly given there are only the two options of menus. Perhaps the ability to just order mains or entrees etc separately?
Good quality food and wine at good price point
Absolutely beautiful. The views, service & meals were outstanding.

Drysdale’s hidden gem!
This contemporary restaurant with a view is Drysdale’s hidden gem. The spacious verandah provides a romantic and intimate setting overlooking lush greenery and high tree tops. Merne at Lighthouse has become the go to spot for special celebrations, anniversaries and romantic nights out.
The menu offers small dishes to eat out on the verandah whilst taking in the beautiful scenery and sipping on champagne. These guys offer a two course or four course option for dining out, including smoked mussels, kangaroo and goat milk parfait. You’ll be finding any reason to celebrate!
