Merlot is one of the best restuarants I have ever been to which is why one of my Danish friends had his 40th birthday there. Its a great restuarant for an intimate meal or business lunch. The wine list is wonderful and they are always keen to advise. Try the coffee its an event in itself. One seen never forgotten.

I'd like to start by saying that this restaurant was not just a matter of eating out. It was an experience that has kept us talking about it ever since our visit and wanting to go back. The menu, service and atmosphere offered was all top drawer: from the personal explanations of ingredients and courses in both Danish and English... More

We had a fantastic meal tonight at Merlot. This was one of our top five dinners ever. Owner chef Egon spent generous time with us and the food was unique fusion of Danish fundamentals with French flair, delicious and presented at its best. We asked him to pair some wines for us and his choices were spot on and well... More

Was i Vejle for one night and were looking for a nice place to eat, when I, by browsing the internet, found this restaurant and thought I'd give it a try. When me and my dinner party came in to the hall, we were met by the owner who took care of our coats. We then came inside the restaurant... More

Found this little gem on Tripadvisor, a very quaint, homely and nicely fashioned restaurant; kind of looks like what I'd imagine Stephen Frys restaurant to look like (if he had one). Onto the Food, me and my wife opted for the five course menu with 2 courses of wine... We started off with a small mini-starter souffle of cod with... More

I visited with 3 colleagues and we had the 5 course meal. The food was superbly cooked and portions were perfect. We left feeling satisfied but not bloated. The wine we chose was a special one so not cheap but was superb. The wine list is fairly comprehensive. I gave it full marks for value not because its cheap (it's... More

The place is very cosy, the building, decoration, fournitures,... Everything makes you feel that this is a special place. The food is good, well prepared, fresh products. The price are reasonnable compared to the experience. Starter + main course for 2 persons without wine would end up around 700 DKK. It was our first time there, but for sure not... More

My wife and I visited this small restaurant in Vejle and we got at big surprise. The host was fantastic and told a lot of funny stories. He serviced gourmet food and the wine menu is one of the largest I have seen. All in all a really good experience.
