A very nice surprise!

Tucked away down some stairs is this very good restaurant, where we enjoyed seriously good food in pleasant surroundings. Hats off to the chef!

Whether stopping for a light lunch or an A La Carte evening out this venue has something for everyone. Prices are very reasonable and there is an ambience of times gone by.

We had dinner in Café Merlot as a party of 12 adults & 3 children having made the reservation after reading Trip Advisor reviews. First impressions weren't great as you enter via a narrow corridor beside the pub and descend into the cellar. The restaurant is a bit gloomy with not much natural light and noise seemed to echo and... More

Café Merlot never disappoints. Often noisy and busy on Saturday nights but staff friendly and food superb. Great antipasti starters - mini burger, roast tomato slices on bruschetto and small cup of slightly spicy fish broth with longoustines - all served on a slate. Very tasty mains of ribeye steak with tomato and cep mushroom served with concannon and crispy... More

Food is absolutely stunning. Very reasonably priced for the quality. The manger is extremely pleasant and can not do enough for you, very nice man indeed. Can not wait to return next year when we return to Fermanagh.

had a very tasty meal here on 28th August. Service was quick, food was of a high quality and the price was reasonable for two courses. The choice was good and the staff were very helpful. Overall a good choice for a family or couples meal. The restaurant is tastefully decorated too.

This was our second visit to Cafe Merlot and again we were not disappointed! Lovely antipasti starter to share, steaks very tasty and beautifully cooked. Shared the trio of desserts which were delightful. Service very attentive, nice wine, reasonably priced. Will definitely be back.

We were seated in a dark corner, our candle was not lit, the staff were friendly. We opted for dinner and dessert, I had the steak which I can not recommend highly enough, it was cooked to perfection and every detail on the plate right down to the tomato that garnished it had been lovingly cared for and tasted exquisite,...
