Was recommended this restaurant by a friend and was delighted to find that she was absolutely right to do so. The ambiance, the food and the staff couldn`t have been better and to top it all the food was very good value for money (£16.95 for 2 courses - we paid £19.95 as we had the rib eye which was...

Enjoyed a fabulous meal last weekend at Cafe Merlot. The elegantly presented courses lived up to the usual very high standard we have come to expect from this establishment.. The staff are cheerful and knowledgeable, delighting in explaining the various elements of each course. There is a real buzz atmosphere but it does not intrude. The wine choice suggested by... More

Have been here for lunch a few times, have never received a dish I didn't like. The soup is always excellant, sandwhiches are good for what you pay. The fajita flour wraps could have been heated. Will find something good for vegetarians. It is qauint and feels very private. Will have to come for dinner soon.

Was recommended by a friend. Good food enjoyed by all. The service was great and throughly enjoyed the knowledge on wine we were given and the recommendation of a nice Merlot. We were there for the pre theatre menu. Would recommend.

Food OK. Side dishes rather pricy. But very OK. Service was just a joke. The waitress couldn't put the new plates on the table because of all the empty dishes on it... The 'manager' passed 4 times without acting. Poor. And disturbing. That why this score is so low.

Absolutely love Cafe Merlot, lunch is always lovely. Staff are lovely & really make an effort, I've seen a waiter speaking to french diners in french & waitresses are always smiling & helpful! Delicious food in pleasant surroundings. Favourite midweek treat!

I've been up in Ennskillen from Dublin quite a few times now and my four visits to cafe merlot have been top quaity. Great seafood dishes and one of the nicest vegetarian mains I've had. There is a lovely selection of wine, which the owner/manager has put a lot of thought into. Highly recommend!
