“Food is very good but very expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

The first time i went to mermaid cafe gallery, in cox's bazar i absolutely loved the ambiance. Back then it was the only one and given to its location on the beach and the open kitchen the highly overpriced food with comparison to the very small serving did not really bother me.

When they opened in Dhaka almost two years back, i was more than excited to visit the place. The decor, the ambiance ,the service, everything was absolutely beautiful. This became the new place for us to go when we needed that virtual beach break away from the city..while being in the city itself!

Food is fresh, juices are fresh and one of the best quality of sea food platter in Dhaka. And if you are not a sea food person (as me) they also have a a platter of poultry and meat on the offer, and vegetarian too, as that is one rarity in this country.I am not generally fond of Lemonade but the drink here is good. My favorite from the food platter is spinach soup and stuffed chicken breast. The choice of desert is minimal but mouth watering, and if you don't mind the extra calories, creme brulee is a must must must...

“Overrated overpriced place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

Went to the place because of so many people talking about it....and I was soo disappointed!! The place it self is nice...but the food is not, especially for the price. The food is way to expensive for no reason. And to top it..the service is terrible...they take ages to serve the food. Overall it was a bad experience....and will never go in there again!

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

A great space and friendly staff, the food was tasty, but my tuna was so over cooked even asking for it to be cooked really really rare. Prices weren't too bad, about 10$US a main. Check it out.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

Went in to have seafood..... But found that their italian dishes were much better.... the tuna steak is exquisite, egg plant (aubergine) with mozzarella side dish is tasty Thai chicken with organic rice is something you need to try their cocktails/ fruit juices are standard.....
