I had dinner here with one of my colleagues. The restaurant was literally 2 minutes away of the hotel I was staying at so I could afford a good glass of wine since I did not have to do any driving. The restaurant sits nicely next to the water, unfortunately it was too cold to sit outside. We were greeted... More

Not all of the guys were accustomed to have diner at the better restaurants but they loved the place very much. The atmosphere is modern / trendy, staff is welcoming you at the door and through the evening very friendly and... More

This restaurant at the banks of the river Eem - the only river that springs in the Netherlands - is a haven for wining and dining. It is located in a recent extension to the centre of Amersfoort - a lovely small, ancient city in the center of the Netherlands. Our 6-course surprise menu was again a revelation. Unbelievable how...

I visited this restaurant with our business colleagues and all of us were impressed with the tastes. Especially, my grilled beef was good with its source. The atmosphere inside the restaurant was black base and the atmosphere was superb. It would be also good for the date.

We went to Merlot for the wife's birthday and are so pleased we chose it. The booking was made via internet with our apologies for not speaking Dutch and on our arrival were greeted in English by our hosts. There was no English menu but we are in Netherlands so perhaps we should make the effort to speak/read more Dutch.... More

Years ago we had a bad experience at Merlot so we avoided the restaurant. A few weeks ago we went back and were surprised, very good 7 course dinner with several amuses and lots of wines by the glass. Only problem was that the start of the meal was very slow, we had to wait a long time before we... More
