    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.

    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.

    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?

    A beautiful place, hidden in the olive grove and vineyard with the best view. Food was exquisite and the service offered by staff wonderful. Very friendly and accommodating. Will go back again.

    Beautiful outlook across the water. The food was delicious. Only criticism was not enough choices for wine by the glass.

    Almost Five-Star Fine-Dining Prices, but not quite fine-dining meals (a couple of dishes sampled fell short). But nonetheless a good dining experience and well worth a visit. Superb views (if you get there before dark). Spacious sitting, large tables (even for 2 - a huge plus for me). Attentive staff. And to top off the night, they serve a 10/10 coffee!
