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!!).

Great food - I had an amazing eggplant dish for breakfast- wonderful flavours and they were happy to add a couple of poached eggs. Friendly staff though they were very busy. Food also came out in good time. Liked the coffee so much I bought some home!

It was great and they accommodated our needs. We had brunch. It was really noisy as there were several big tables of people having a coffee. Would have preferred to maybe sit in the closed in veranda for a quieter time.

We had a lovely time at Merricks and the ambience was lovely however the breakfast menu, namely the Eggs Benedict left a lot to be desired. We were so excited to drive from Melbourne early in the morning to try the menu. Unfortunately Boston beans were not available that day and my husband opted for Eggs Benedict. As a famous staple breakfast item we expected better. Dry muffin, poor hollaindaise and quite insipid presentation.

I ordered the roti with haloumi, beetroot hummus and avocado- quite nice but needed a bit more crunch!

Coffee was great and service warm and friendly

We’ve been here quite a few times and have enjoyed it - usually v good food, nice setting, good service and an overall nice Sunday relaxing experience.
This time around it was ok but not as relaxing. They’ve crammed a lot more tables into the place, so levels of service aren’t quite as sharp (although still relatively ok). The worst part was the booming noise levels as everyone tries competing to have a conversation- historically that was never a problem. The servings have also got smaller and pricier so the value for money isn’t quite there. I do like the area however I’m sure there are other places nearby worth exploring.

Great ambiance and lovely surroundings, made extra special by the heritage old building and façade. The food was very well cooked and the wine list has a good selection of pinot noirs.

I booked online and ticked the box that it was for a birthday. I brought a cake along but was told we couldn't have it there - fair enough, but would have been good to get this info from the website or booking site. I ticked the box for a birthday celebration but, because of no cake, it wasn't really made into a "special occasion" for my Mum. It was a bit noisy where we were seated (close to doorway between two dining areas) but the wait staff were very efficient and friendly and the food was lovely, albeit a bit pricey. Will go again but probably not for a special occasion.

It does get very very busy and that crippled the kitchen and staff on the lunch service, but it is understandable.

Had a great lunch at Merricks General Wine Store. Sat outside on the verandah out the back with the dog, enjoying the sun. Wine tasting at the cellar door was really enjoyable. The man who talked us through the wines was very knowledgeable and pleasant to speak with, so a special commendation goes to him! Lunch was delicious. Two of our party enjoyed the fish of the day and the burger. My friend and I shared the proscuitto and cheese platter, which was divine. Will definitely be back! Bonus points for being dog friendly!!
