“Great but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

We had a great dinner. We shared a cheese fondue, empanadas, and a dessert fondue, and two glasses of wine, and our tab was 46.24. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the good wine. The food was delicious, especially the peanut butter desert fondue. We will be back!

“Bohemian Meets Wine Bar With Great Food, Excelent Staff and Outstanding Live Entertainement!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

The Kilted Mermaid is one of my favorite spots in Vero. Linda and Rick, the dynamic owners of this easily found hotspot seem to know everyone in town and all who enter are made to feel welcome and at home. They get it!

Every staff member has a kind word, handshake or hug and this really adds to the homey feeling which pervades every corner of the small, but well thought-out establishment.

The broad selection of fine craft beers and wine, selection of unbelievably addictive "fondue events" and other tasty offerings combine to make Kilted a must visit for tourists looking to mix and mingle with Vero's residents.

Very few places in Vero offer such a consistent offering of great live music and Linda is great at marketing their performers on Facebook, so I strongly suggest you friend the Kilted Facebook page.

Overall the Kilted Mermaid has steadily grown a large and loyal following since its opening.

Hope to see you there.

“Great little place even for families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

Wasn't so sure whether it would be appropriate for a family with older children but after seeing the great reviews we decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did. Great apps, great fondue, and a really mellow laid back atmosphere. We enjoyed it tremendously even with kids. Large beer and wine selection for the adults and the kids were equally impressed by the flatbreads and the fondue. This is definitely a new stop on our regular Vero Beach trips.

“great entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We have been to the Kilted Mermaid a few times and really enjoy the atmosphere of the establishment. They feature live music on Friday and Saturday and it is an eclectic mix of music that is presented. The decor inside is very unusual and interesting. They also have outdoor seating and you can still hear the music from out there. We have sat both inside and outside and found that we enjoyed it a little more outside (not Quite as loud). The first time we went it was to hear a blus group. We ordered some wine and decided to try the chocolate fondue, which was excellent. If you decide to go, I would recommend getting there by 8 as it will fill up pretty quickly and seating is somewhat limited. Great way to spend a Friday or Saturday evening. They list the entertainment in the local paper every week and it is posted for future shows so you can plan ahead. Good service and friendly atmosphere.
