Dulcie's is a reimagined family cottage turned restaurant bar. The menu consists of a small selection of tasty burgers, oysters, seasonal cocktails, delicious wine, and friendly chat. Dulcie’s has a long bar to sit at, a beer garden to hang in, a fireplace to warm up next to. All of our menus consider local produce and the atmosphere we aim to create is cosy, fun and comfortable. Think cool grandma crossed with cheeky grandpa vibes.

    Very friendly staff, delicious bubbles, lovely open fire and a warm atmosphere. Love the dog wall of fame! The shroom burger was fantastic and so were the fries with secret sauce. Hubby had the cheeseburger and said it was great. We had groceries and gorgeous Connor offered to put them in their fridge while we had our lunch. All round superstars!!!!

    A special institution in Merimbula - they do it all very well. Great concept & great food, cocktails and drinks, great music and ambiance and open fire! We look forward to our annual visit to Merimbula and Dulcies is a highlight!

    Third time we have been there. Last time was 3 years ago. On holidays and passing through Merimbula and had to go back. Nothing has changed. Ambience is still great, Food is great as is the service; warm, genuinely friendly and helpful. Like the idea that you have a choice of "creating" you're own menu. Wheelchair accessible and easy to get to. A huge thank you to our waitress, Jess. Awesome service and made the evening.

    Burgers were great, although we spent over $100 for 4 burgers without sides. Service was good and bar/table staff were lovely. We arrived with 2 children before 8pm and were made to feel like we had Done something wrong. Security guard was beyond rude and made us feel uncomfortable so we left without finishing our meals. Wait staff advised he is often rude and people do complain about him. His behaviour was unacceptable and honestly if he causes so much trouble he shouldn’t be employed to man the front gate. It basically ruined the night for us. As I said, food was good and a good spot for a drink, however not affordable or family friendly.

    You might come for the very reliable burgers, but then delight in the bar. The knowledgeable staff are capable of delighting the senses with outstanding cocktails.

    The burgers are excellent. Good variety of beers. The burgers are expensive considering they don’t come with chips.

    Ordering with QR code at the table not my thing, but trying to order at the bar was so time-consuming I returned to the table and used my phone. Our burgers arrived after 45 minutes. Wine pours we're minimal and $14 a pop. I've always enjoyed Dulcie's but left this time quite underwhelmed.
