We had not eaten her in approximately 18 months and were eager to try Merritt 's again. We had lunch which was exceptional value. The food was excellent, house wine was very good and the service and ambiance were exceptional. Gai who served us was very attentive and knowledgeable. It was a great experience and I would recommend without hesitation!

Breakfast at Merretts is as good as it gets. No car noises, a marvellous selection of cuisine, and the solitude of being by the water, with the boats, and the beach adjoining. I've spent many a Sunday morning with the papers, and just spaced the meal out....... Perfect!
Merretts at lunch is usually very quiet, and even at night the room may just be half full, but the high quality of the food, the presentation, and the taste!.... are absolutely the finest in The Port Stephens area. You will sample something at Merretts that you had never experienced before, or presented in a most unusual way, that takes your fancy.
Any knockers of the food here, were just not in the mood to taste fine cuisine, or had set themselves up to be critics before they even sat down. Certainly one of the finest restaurants I've eaten at, all over the world, Superb position, Port Stephen's Best!

WE stayed at the Anchorage, and ate here for our first night, and the meal was really delicious and we had 2 courses for a set price---it was our anniversary--pity we had a very Loud table beside us and they over drank and got louder!! Also the lights are very bright and not a lot of atmosphere in there.
but as the meal was so good we ate there again the 2nd night and had a great meal also---the chef is very knowledgeable!!

the food is great with a varied menu, we chose to order three courses each to receive the complimentary bottle of wine for an total of $140. The food delivery however took forever and the room was freezing.

Views are sensational and so is the food. Considering the quality, prices are reasonable. I come here for lunch often - well controlled dogs can sit outside with owners.
