Great food (moules frittes to die for), relaxed atmosphere, great service - also for the kids! Can't go wrong with Bistro Merlot.

and drinks the following night. Nice wine selection - knowledgeable, friendly staff. I only wish that they were open a little later into the night. Was there on business, but this could be a good romantic spot with the right company.

The day we arrived in Gothenburg (early morning) we had a salad lunch and didn't feel like a full dinner. Bistro Merlot was on my list "to do" so we just went there for wine and dessert. The desserts were excellent. My daughter (a dessert lover) rated it 8.5 but by the end of our stay she had upgraded it... More

The service was fast. The waiter/owner was really nice to us. The price weren't that high compared to other places where the food was a lot less good. The waiter even serves us in French which was really appreciated. We even talked with a few regular customers that were very friendly! Totally recommended!!

Just off the main avenue in Gothenburg, we found Bistro Merlot. Being off the Avenue made for a much more relaxing meal than on the Avenue. Typical French place with a nice selection. I started with a fresh salad and then had the hamburger which was amazingly good. Desserts were even better. We will be back again as this place... More

We had a delightful meal here. The menu is very much French bistro, so we ordered duck confit and braised lamb with bacon, then shared Crepes Suzette for dessert. The service was friendly and prompt, and the Merlot we ordered (how could we resist given the name of the restaurant?) was a nice complement to the meal. Definitely recommend.

If you are in Goteborg. Never forget to try this place. It is super. Very good vines and food. This is a real French Bistro. Right in the central of Goteborg.
