Been here on numerous business occasions but it is even better as a restaurant to go to on family special occasions. They took excellent care of special wishes regarding the menu and wines taken form our home cellar on the occasion. Food was very good, beautifully arranged and tasty. Our guests stayed here overnight and they enjoyed it too at... More

Ingredients were all fresh and the composition and taste were excellent. We had a bottle of Puligny Montrachet and paid Euro 365 for the dinner. The staff... More

Service was impeccable, and the food lovely. We had the 6 course tasting menu with matching wines. Truly a great value for money (80€ for the food alone). The cheese course is not to be missed! The sommelier was outstanding. He offered several more challenging wines at the beginning, but all paired perfectly with each course. Was it all worthy... More

Always a great experience (food, service and ambience) at Merlet. Food is elegant, yet straightforward. The sommelier does a great job in selection of excellent wines to combine. Highly recommend.

We had a 5 course diner at the Merlet Restaurant located directly beneath our room. It has been awarded a Michelin Star, and lived up to every expectation. Service, food presentation and quality where excellent!
