    What an amazing staff! We went for Mother's Day and I had a special request if a gift could be handed to my mom once we're seated. I went in earlier fully prepared for them to say no, understandably so because they are really busy on Mother's Day. But they were so happy to do it and seemed excited that they could be part of my mom's surprise. They were very attentive too even though it was crazy busy. The food is nice! And they had special activities for Mother's Day, like a photo booth, live music, giveaways, free welcome drink, and for every mom they gave free makeup and a rose. Really nice experience!

    We had a wonderful experience this evening at the Mercat Mothers Day Buffet. We were greeted with a glass of champagne for both my husband and I, and then I was presented with a beautiful flower and as if that weren’t enough, I was given a beautiful fancy gold-cased lipstick by Revlon. Then we were graciously seated by a young lady and greeted by our server. She was very, very attentive and helped us along the way to finding the most delicious shrimp, oysters on the half shell, mussels, and several other seafoods such as a tuna tartar bowl with rice. Also, there was sushi and california rolls, and so much more, I can’t even remember what else but it was all delicious. And that was just the beginning. I was then mesmerized by an italian station where I was able to choose vegetables such as mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers, onion, spinach, bacon, a white or red sauce and a pasta. I chose ziti with white sauce and one of several different cheeses which the gentleman suggested would go well with the vegetables and bacon that I had chosen for my sauce. He sautéed them all together tossing and flipping them, then topped it all off with off with parmesan cheese, until it was a perfect sauce. The only other thing that I added to my plate was a delicious slice of roast beef that literally melted in my mouth. There was a massive table set up with all kinds of delicious looking desserts, too. Oh my goodness this was the most delicious dinner I have ever had in Aruba! We will be back again and again!

    Not a great service. We paid the same amount like everyone else in the dining room that day, but since our reservation was at 1 pm, the moms at out table did not get a rose and our party wasn't involved in the raffle and btw, we were rushed by the waiter, since the buffet ended at 2 PM. It wasn't like that at all when the same venue was "La Vista". Mercat was not a nice experience on a special day like Mother's Day.

    We had high expectations for Mercat since it had received good reviews. The restaurant is nicely appointed but with chairs that are incredibly loud when pulled out for seating of otherwise moved. That is a very minor concern, but attention to detail is important. Even though the restaurant was mostly empty it was still "noisy" to the point where we could hear the folks at the tables on the other side of the restaurant almost as though they were sitting next to us. My lamb shank was good, but my wife's salmon was way undercooked. We sent it back after she ate what she could and they did replace it with a full meal. Coincidently, a woman at the next table sent her chicken back twice since it was undercooked before telling the waiter to simply cancel her order. Again, great looking restaurant, but the food was a disappointment.

    Service was sub par. The waiter barely checked on us even though the restaurant was quiet. The apps were great but the entrees were small. The pizza did not taste homemade—the crust tasted like a freezer crust. The branzino, greek salad, and hummus were very good. Also, after we had finished paying, our waiter (Augustin) came around and said “I have a present for you.” The present was his business card with an QR code he wanted us to use to give him a good rating/review. After visiting several of the other restaurants on the island, we would not go back here.

    We are a group that comes to Aruba each year and wanted a place for Sunday Brunch. We had not tried Mercat and from New York I attempted to make reservations online but was unable to make one as open table sets a max of 8.We needed one for 9 people. However I messaged the restaurant and they could not have been more accommodating. It was no problem to adjust to nine. The experience was outstanding. The array and quality of food was absolutely incredible. From classic breakfast choices of any type to substantial hot lunch dishes, poke bowls, small bites the selection just goes on and on presented in a beautiful way along with " bottomles" mimosas is not to be missed. Our server was the delightful Rosa. She went above and beyond to inform us and was so kind and accommodating I say if making reservations ask for her section! So if you are looking for a fantastic place to have brunch on Sunday in Aruba make your way to Mercat at Marriot Stellaris for a wonderful experience. Ps..another suprise was that the cost online is actually listed in AF not US dollars so it amounts to only $34pp without gratuity. Living in NY it was amazing pricing for what you are served. Mercat will now be added to our yearly stops in Aruba.

    Service was excellent. It was Easter Brunch so it was very lively. (Loud) which was fine. Food overall was really good except the meat didn’t have much flavor, was overcooked for us and was very chewy. Everything else especially the seafood was perfect. Would definitely go again.

    The food at Mercat is really good. We only had starters to share and cocktails, and they were really good. Moreover, we want to thank Viviana and especially to the Supervisor Emilyn for their good service and attention to detail as they made us feel really welcomed and happy with our overall experience.
