Was really good

Had a great dinner here. The food was extremely rich and I could not eat all of it! People write about it being on the small side and that was true. I would recommend!

the place is nice and one of the waitress speak french. The Foie gras as a starter was really good. The musles dish was a bit disappointed : small quantity, not so tasty and small musles (maybe not the season). the creme brulée for the dessert was ok.

We went a family of four with two teenage kids and really loved this place. It's located in the centre and is extremely cozy and the staff was very warm and welcoming. We hade the cheese and meat starter and it was perfect with great cheese and a good size for four people. We also had the escargot and they... More

Very small, the seat space was very narrow. Yummy food. It is a good place to fill up your hunger but sitting there chatting with friends.

Truly delicious French food with a taste of southern France. We had an incredibly sweet hostess so service is first class.

Just arrived in Gothenburg, and we went out for a bite. Luckily we found Bistro Merlot with friendly service and innovative dishes and a good choice of wines.
