Great evening - lovely food and great service - will be back
Fantastic. Great food - everything on the menu. Service wonderful. Can’t say enough.
Thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary dinner her. Would definitely like to come back. Staff are respectful and lovely. Swrvice was impeccable.
Realy good food but the service was terrible. It didnt exactly ruin the evening but left a sour note. When I was first seated I was igored and after some time, I had to flag a waiter down to order a drink (go figure).
We waited a decent 40mins for our last dish to arrive after we had asked for it TWICE. The 2nd time we asked for the dish (because we had waited for so long) we said we will just cancel it. But to our astonishment, the waiter came back and said the dish had been cooked (ofcourse).
The waiter we spoke to about our last dish not arriving had abit of an attitude and I saw him have a giggle about us with the host which as awful.
Great experience, really lovely food and amazing combinations!
Fantastic food, we especially loved the scallops, prawns and the freshly baked bread. The foie was definitely our favourite. Great value on the degustation menu.
We wanted to try everything, and ordered too much food, but it was delicious! Oysters were creamy and sweet, and roast chicken was best we had in Sydney. They do beautiful and unique flavors with purees and sauces. Definitely add Mercado to your list.
Have been to Mercado previously and will definitely book again. Love the share plates concept.
A great discovery. Interesting dishes, designed to share. We shall return.
The food and service was both excellent. The servings were substantial. We will come back and try the other dishes on the menu.
This is my 4th time there and it's always consistently good! The food is innovative, and internationally inspired with a Spanish theme. Sharing is the name of the game. Order from the small, medium, and large sharing dishes. Be sure to have them with one of their house cocktails or wines from their more than decent wine list. We like the high tables in the corner to the right as you enter. It's out of the way, cozy, but we're never forgotten. They have a great staff always looking after us.
Recommend the hummus, jamon iberico, octopus, the pumpkin ravioli, kingfish tartare, and the foie gras with fig and raspberries.
Great food, location and excellent service.
The waitress made us feel like home.
We were celebrating birthday and staff even brought a little dessert and candles
Amazing date night restaurant with great food to share.
We had not realised it was "platter" service but now we know, and it was most enjoyable. A tad on the expensive side but when shared, not so much. Marvellous position for the City Recital Centre.
We chose the pre-theater menu which was a small version of a degustation, about half a dozen small tasting courses and a substantial main course selected by the chef from several rotisserie options. Ours was roast chicken, perhaps the most flavoursome and juicy I can remember having. At $55 per person it was good value. Drinks extra from a list of cocktails and mostly European wines. Attentive and knowledgeable waiters. A very good dining experience.
The food is excellent - fresh and surprising approach with quality ingredients.
I had eaten here with my husband and we shared 3 medium size plates each of which was delicious , generous portions and fairly priced
Beacause we enjoyed so much I wanted to take my 2 daughters as a treat for lunch.
One daughter asked the waitress if there was a special that day, and we were told that fillet steak was a special With varying degrees of weights
But no mention was made of price.
This was something which she should have told us
The cost was a prohibitive $90 for whatever the weight was - the smallest of those offers.
Given the medium plates we ordered were $29? Or $39 - cannot remember, this was way off the beam as far as cost goes.
My daughter would not have ordered if she had been told the price and was acutely embarrassed when the bill arrived, as I was paying.
Nor did I wish to further embarras by making a fuss.
So no return for any 3 of us !
Fantastic service and so much food on the $100.00 set menu
Food was great but service was really poor - two items we ordered never arrived and had to chase wine so that we had wine with our mains food.
Another wonderful meal at Mercado. The food is delicious, with good vegetarian options. Wine is always interesting, and service is outstanding.
The food was amazing, the wine list was excellent, the atmosphere was nice, not noisy, the service was excellent. however, there was one thing that spoilt our first occasion there - there werent many people there, but they managed to put "someone else's" dessert on our bill, when we didnt even have dessert - that was not cool. lucky we checked the bill. goodness knows how often that happens?
Took an overseas friend here while she was visiting and she loved it. It’s one of my fav spots in the city; it is consistently delicious, has a great wine list and provides friendly service. Can’t wait to go back!! Keep up the good work team.
The wine list and menu were extensive but not overwhelming, and our coeliac colleague was easily catered for. Our Colombian waitress was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The lamb shoulder was melt-in-your-mouth perfect, and the parfait was also a highlight. We'll be back - a great option for an easy, but classy, business lunch.
Excellent service and the food was amazing Will definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends
Was surprised and delighted by Mercado. The food was unique and quite special. Service would have scored better but disappeared later in the evening so was hard to find someone for the bill!
Had great expectations . Didn’t stand up to it. No wow factor in taste
Lovely meal, everything tasted great. Sitting right next to the kitchen was a bit bright though. But otherwise lovely meal.
The flat bread that the serve is probably the tastiest thing I had ever eaten. Our whole table said they could just eat that for the rest of the day.
I have dined at Mercado frequently. Sadly the food is now formulaic and repetitive, and service Friday night was absolutely shockingly bad. I will not return nor recommend it.
I really enjoyed the food at Mercado. I was recommended this restaurant by a friend for the amazing dishes and they lived up to the hype. I will definitely dine here again as I had an amazing meal.
I love Mercado. Food was delicious as usual. Service off a little on Saturday night. Some really helpful, friendly and attentive servers and then others completely ignored us and we sat with empty plates waiting for dessert for ages. Still brilliant.
Fantastic beautiful food and such a surprise of food made well,great choices and wonderful service.
Have been wanting to try for ages so was thrilled to do so before our ACO concert. Great menu with perfect amount and variety of food from what looks to be a fab menu. We will be back to sample more but with more time. Thank you
Great value menu! Lovely services. Enjoyed the entire dining experience
We asked 4 times for tap water and finally got it a half hour after arrival!! It’s not that hard!! The food was served one dish at a time so u couldn’t mix flavours. And our waitress seemed annoyed when we asked a few questions around the dishes as it was our first time dining there. No we were not impressed. The staff seemed rushed although it was only half full. So it was a disappointing night.
Absolutely fantastic! Can’t fault anything. 5 stars over and over again!
Far long between courses. We sat with empty plates for half an hour.
Great food, wine and service! I’ll definitely be back again.
Some of the food was cold when serving it but otherwise good.
Even though it is a tapas restaurant, the food arrived at the table totally out of sync with fries first, which meant they were cold before the large plate was served and we ordered the fries to go with this dish. A little thought on delivery of dishes would be nice.
