We stayed at The Mecure for two nights and ate at the restaurant three times--two breakfasts and one dinner. The breakfasts were a fairly standard offering including cereals, toasts and hot food (avoid the scrambled eggs) but the hot pancake machine was a winner! The dinner was very pleasant, and service was reasonably good. It's not amazing food but I enjoyed a nice beef fillet and hubby had the lamb, not huge servings for my hungry hubby so the $38 per meal didn't go very far as I usually give him some of mine. We both had desserts and they were delicious, can recommend the apple maple cake Yum!! Probably give it 7 out of 10.

Have been a few times, have enjoyed ordering off the menu & also have had the set "High Tea" - great afternoon atmosphere with girlfriends & also lovely dinner menu & atmosphere too. Friendly staff, great cocktails & easy & well priced menu. Definitely worth a return visit. Day spa packages also tie in well with staying for a meal.

I must start out by saying that the food we had was very good, especially the stuffed zucchini flowers. Not much of a choice from the mains but the entrees were interesting. Wine list very pricey with limited choice. The white we had was quite horrible. Was a busy night with not enough staff, hence, our orders took a long time to be taken, 2 people got their meals after the other 4 and we had to ask for more water more than once. If we're at a pizza place, we don't mind this sort of service but, Mercure, if you want to charge Sydney prices then give us Sydney service, please!
Outdoor area is quite nice. In fact, we probably should have stayed outside as the acoustics inside were dreadful.

Service was great as was the food. I found the menu a little short on choice as I was there for three nights.
