We dined at Braddon Merchant just after they re-opened after pandemic shutdown. Service was excellent (and appreciative) and the food served as a 5-course degustation experience was amazing.

Had a wonderful night, an excellent showcase of local food and wine, not to mention the excellent service. Definitely going again.

Whisked in and without even being able to order a drink we were told we were getting the Chefs choice menu. The food was terrible, lacked taste, and it was clear that they used cheap cuts and choices (ox tail, chicken thigh, and a pimped up choc chip cookie for dessert) The staff and chefs seemed more concerned about going home than good service! Sorry guys, but there’s a reason there are alway free tables!

While there was only a fixed menu - 5 course chef selection due to just reopening post COVID - it was great value @ $70/person. Great selection of wines which the waiting staff had in depth knowledge of . Really enjoyable night.

We had booked brunch with friends after a long shutdown period. Booked for 9.30am. At 9.15, we get a call from the restaurant to let us know that the kitchen closes at 10am so we will need to order by 9.45 to get the orders in. We are on our way there when we get the call.

We arrive and are asked for coffee orders. No sign of menus so need to ask for them at 9.40am. Coffee takes 20mins to get to the table. We order. Scrambled eggs with sourdough and Pepe saya butter, bacon, tomato. Our friend asks if an omelette is possible. Yes. She is asked 3 more times how she would like her eggs cooked.

Eventually breakfast arrives. The scramble is tasty but very loose and only just set. The ‘toasted sourdough’ is a thin slice that looks like it comes from a supermarket. It is barely toasted and there is no butter to be seen. We have to ask for butter, but it is pointless as the ‘toast’ is cold and inedible. No one checks on us again. No one asks if we would like another round of coffees. Our bill is unceremoniously dumped on the table. At $30 a head this is overpriced and unappetising. We won’t be coming back.

The restaurant lacked any atmosphere & the food was trying to be clever but didn’t hit the mark. Due to COVID restrictions lifting they were running a set menu of 5 courses. One of our party doesn’t eat seafood but they didn’t replace his two seafood courses with anything else. Rather disappointed over all.

Nice, stark modern environment. Ambitious menu but scallops would have been better on their own or with a vegetable accompaniment. Also a bit bread heavy. Good olives and steak, in particular. Good wine list.

The service was excellent, but not the food. Coffee was great too. The bacon and egg rolls were tiny, really tiny. Tasted good, but not worth it. My wife asked for gluten free, but ended up with stomach cramps all day and into the evening, it wasn't gluten free. And the omelette was very dry. I'd recommend going somewhere else!

Attentive waiters who knew their stuff and who were aware of special dietary requirements listed online. At last a place that actually gets the information and wait staff are aware of it! Tasty food reasonably priced too.

My partner and I had the best anniversary dinner at the Braddon Merchant. Nothing could have been better, it was truly an experience to remember. The food was outstanding and the service was exceptional - including a special glass of champagne on arrival and even a specialised six course menu. Highly recommend, will definitely return!

We had the Braddon Merchant Experience for $55 per person. The food was very nice - good value for money. The wine selection is good too.

Nothing short of fabulous. We had the chefs pick which involved $55 per head and a huge number of dishes from across the menu. The wine list is extensive.

On arrival we were not aware of the seafood content of the set menu for Valentine’s Day, having to change to the vegetarian menu - but this was the best thing we ever did!

Each dish was incredible - well presented and delicious. The zucchini flowers in particular were fabulous and the lime meringue was bursting with flavour.

The staff were lovey - nothing was too hard and everyone was happy to talk about the food and check how we were going.

I would thoroughly recommend Braddon Merchant as it was an amazing dinner out!

Beautifully designed environment and incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable staff. We went with the $55 set menu which was ample food for 5 guys. Great wines available and insightful staff to select the right one. A great addition to the restaurant scene.

Braddon Merchant is a very new restaurant in Braddon and the service and food was wonderful. The waiter was fantastic and very honest and helpful with wine and food choices. I highly recommend the Braddon experience for $55 per person for share plates - there was a good amount of food in this option. Each meal was different and tasty.

I imagine this place will become very busy once word gets out it is open and how fantastic the place is.
