We were staying in the Plaza B&B . On reading reviews we decided to give the Merlot a try. Bad mistake. As stated in my Title, reading the other reviews, we must have been very unlucky with the meals my wife and I received. We ate here on Sunday 23rd Nov. Starters were average, I had soup which was overly... More

There is no doubting the excellence of the food and the talent that has prepared it. I've marked it down because I felt the menu was a little derivative and what arrived was not necessarily what I expected. It really annoys me when a restaurant lists rib-eye steak and roast beef arrives.Fair enough the cut is rib-eye but when you... More

We visited The Merlot Restaurant recently for a family celebration, it was our 2nd time there in about 3 years and I was delighted to see that the food was still very good and the same staff were just as professional and friendly. Food and service was second to none, its well worth a visit for a treat.

Recently ate here for the fourth time. Anytime we are Westport we stay in the Plaza, and each time have dined here, and it seems to get better each time. Amazing food, and friendly staff. Also nice to see over the years the same friendly staff there. Food tastes and is presented to very high standard, and the menu is... More

Good quality food and service, however, ambiance suffers a little because the restaurant (being part of a hotel) is so large.

We had two meals in Restaurant Merlot while staying in the Westport Plaza. The food was first class. The menu had enough choice each night to keep us happy. The menu changes every day. We will be back.
