The food is absolutely delicious! Only thing to draw on is that the bread we had ordered was removed before we had eaten even though the basket was full

I went there with my girlfriend while we were visiting our friends in Porsgrunn. From the moment you enter the restaurant you're feeling like you are in right place. Friendly atmosphere, smiling people and beautiful warm place make you feel like at home. We had...three course meal and all of these dishes were great (Shrimps, enterecote and lava cake as a dessert). It's good to try their wines and they can easily recommend you how to pair wine with your meal. After dessert as a beer lover I felt in love with their local craft beer. Great experience, delicious food and really good time that we spent during our visit Norway. 101% recommended! Thanks Merci Team!More

I can honestly say that it was one of the best meals I had ever had. I highly recommend gnocchi with pesto, pine nuts, and with delicious burrata cheese on top it. For the starter, I had tortellini with chanterelles mushrooms and with a perfectly...creamy sauce. I also had very tasty fries with truffle oil. Besides that, I had a dessert and it was tiramisu with pistachios. As a vegetarian, I was really satisfied with my dishes. This restaurant is high class with an amazing staff and management! You can feel that this place was created with passion!More

This restaurant is marketed and priced as a high end french restaurant. However, when we received dry, frozen cooked pommes frites that tasted stale and really terrible we decided to say something. The junior waiting staff were super kind so we said that we found...the rest of the food nice and didn’t want a fuss. Even so, they called the owner over to speak to us, we were then ridiculed (in front of other guests) by the appalling, aggressive, arrogant owner whom refused to accept that, as a ‘french restaurant’ his dry, frozen pommes frites (101 basic french classic) were not acceptable. He was insistent that his expensive FROZEN french fries in a FRENCH restaurant were the best in Norway. Unquestionably, I’ve eaten better fries in a multitude of non-french non-expensive Norwegian restaurants..... so we paid, left upset and disappointed....never to return.More

At last we got around to have a dinner at Merci. And what a pleasure! A very nice location near the river, with a beautiful view. Nice interior and pleasant staff. The food is most certainly French inspired. Dinner was near perfect. We had a...misunderstanding with one of the beef served, but the they would make a new one even it was already eaten! Al three courses had the highest quality, so I would not think again visiting this restaurant. Well done Merci!More

The place is quite basic in design and interior, but has a good menu and serve quality food. A little untrained waiter did not spoil the evening. We all ended up with what we ordered and it was at a standard not matched in Porsgrunn...now.More
