On our annual visit to Enniskillen, the number one spot on Tripadvisor had to be sampled, especially after the praise lavished by a couple we met the previous night: we were not disappointed. On entering via the Italianate structure at the back, we found ourselves in a cellar with vaulted ceilings. We hadn't booked, but Sunday evening at 6pm was,... More

We went here last night, on visit from Antrim. We enjoyed our food and the wine was good - although the wine list could have been better presented! I really enjoyed my crab pate starter and short rib main. Hubby's fish cake nice but it was swimming in sauce which ruined it a bit. His steak was very good! We... More

Went at around 3pm on a Sunday and was very pleased on first entering the restaurant. Nice place, decor and ambiance. However we were given a Sunday lunch menu which was very limited and on first run through there was nothing jumping out, we actually considered going somewhere else. I had seen the usual menu online and was disappointed with... More

We really enjoyed our meal here, even though we found it difficult to find and kept driving past it. The Thai pork belly starter was pure quality, not too fatty in a beautiful sauce. I had lamb shoulder, it was cooked to perfection, so tender it could have been cut with a spoon, my wife loved her ribeye steak also.... More

Both for lunch and dinner this is the place to go. Freshly cooked food and very good value.They always have a good choice of food and their Rib Eye steaks are superb. For food with excellent flavour this is the place.

This was our first trip to Ireland and it certainly won't be our last. This restaurant is a real gem - the atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the food was some of the best we have ever eaten. If you go here do catch a 'wee drinkie' in the pub on the ground floor and if you are feeling... More

Johnny & Gerry & Staff: all work very hard to create a unique dining experience which I have been lucky to experience on a regular basis! Keep up the good work guys..love the new addition of Organic Salmon with Miso & Sesame crust on a bed of scented rice...beautiful. Always consistent on service & imaginative food!

Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor I booked this restaurant for my family and parents (7 of us) and had high expectations. Unfortunately it really was like something out of Fawlty Towers. Firstly we arrived and were shown to our table and given menus. The waiter came and took our order for food but no drinks and we had... More

Always the culinary highlight of the holiday, Cafe Merlot once again lived up to (high) expectations, A varied menu with some interesting dishes - hake and beef bourgignon - suoerb desserts and an extensive wine list thats not too hard on the pocket. The staff as always were friendly and professional. Very highly recommended
