Unadventurous wine list, but very acceptable. Sincere and friendly service. Exceedingly dense and overcooked burger patty. Nicely crisp skin on the salmon - although fish was farmed rather than wild, which may explain the medium not medium rare doneness.

We enjoyed our lunch at Merricks Genral Wine Store. Food was very good but limited options available for vegetarians which was surprising. One of my guests was disappointed with the Barramundi. As it was a Sunday Lunch it was very busy and there was no Cider drinks from the menu available and they had also apparently run out of Coke. Overall I would visit again probably mid week.

It was busy so service was slow and we felt forgotten. Food was disappointing- the Barramundi and Pate. Mains were expensive.
It was noisy given the number of people.
We would not return.

we had to move because our table in the dining room was next to the door which the waitress kept going through. very draughty. we were moved to the newer long bench table. The fish was the ends of the fish with neither of us having a middle piece

I was very disappointed with Merricks General Wine Store as it came highly recommended. There were three of us and all three of us were disappointed. We found the food quite "ordinary" and, in fact, the duck confit was very dry, so less than "ordinary". We also had a less than fabulous sardine (two tiny pieces) niçoise salade, quite small and plain, and a seafood pasta that was OK, not wonderful. Service was quite slow. We sat for a long time waiting for our orders to be taken and for the food to arrive.

Great place to catch up with friends for breakfast or lunch. Staff are very friendly and efficient, we did not have to wait very long for our coffees and breakfast even though it was very busy. We were not made to feel we had to leave once finished which was nice, unlike other places during the summer rush. The meal was lovely, though the breakfast menu is rather limited. It does get very noisy when the venue is close to being full, though there is the outside deck as an option.

Mark this as a "Coffee stop" only... food, while okay, was extremely overpriced for the quality and location.

Booked for my birthday, Merricks didn’t disappoint. Great, friendly service from our waitress, food was delightful. Quite noisy but not distracting. Loved browsing the shop on the way out. We like to eat out and this was by far one of the best places we have been to in a long time!!! We live on the doorstep so we will be back!

Fresh and delicious food, presented beautifully. An exceptional glass of local Shiraz added depth to the experience. I requested some additional olive oil and this was provided immediately. Staff were charming, from the wine bar to the restaurant and took the time to personalise our visit with a warm, brief chat. Thoroughly enjoyable across the board.

It was extremely busy when we went for lunch on Sunday, which is what you would expect down at Mornington Peninsula at that time of the year. Luckily we booked and were shown straight to our table. The food was excellent (lamb shoulder was one of the best I have had) and taking into consideration how busy they were, arrived fairly quickly. Very good wine knowledge and food matching. Coffee and cakes were both great too.

Clean,fresh healthy food with sympathetic use of local produce. Down to earth helpful staff. You can have a quick bite or linger. Great for vegetarians. Don't trust a taxi to take you home when they say they will (you'll never see them!!).
