Food was excellent. Staff seemed a little harassed, especially younger ones, but was Saturday night so very busy. Would definitely recommend, must go to place if in Enniskillen

Rated as number 1 on TripAdvisor and with good reason. Had a 3 course meal here with a friend and every course was as amazing as the next. I would particularly recommend the steak and ice-creams as a dessert. The restaurant itself is lovely and quaint looking and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back.

We took lunch at the Merlot last week. The restaurant was well staffed and the service good. My wife enjoyed her duck confit. I had fish and chips which were served on a slate - everything was enjoyable - the batter was excellent but there was a distinct lack of fish contained therein. I will make a return visit but...

Read the reviews and remember previous experiences being great in this Restaurant. But this meal I found was very substandard! My partner and I got steak and it was full of gristle and fat. I probably should have complained at the time, but didn't for whatever reason. Very didsapointed, giving it 3 stars due to previous meals here being fantastic

What delicious food! What an explosion of flavours! What imaginative cooking! If you like variety choose the Assiette both for starters and desert. The waiter was so welcoming and took delight in answering all our questions about the ingredients. This is now our favourite restaurant!

Amazing food as usual coupled with extremely good service. The fishcake starter was mouth watering and the steak main cooked to perfection 10/10

I came here with a friend and her friends back in August, for a wine tasting evening. I have to say it was a great giggle and thoroughly enjoyed the different wines and the tapas that came with it. Needless to say i was a little intoxicated but would highly recommend it for a girly get together.

Went here disputed recent review and the food was very pleasant. Made to feel welcome on a quiet Tuesday night. I had the chicken which was cooked to order so tool bout 20 mins but gave me time to catch up on email via the free wifi. No probs here. If hungry take a starter as it wasn't huge but... More
