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.

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.

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.

Dear Open Table

I took my team of 6 for an EOFY lunch to Mercado. It was terrific and the team really enjoyed it. They enjoyed the quality selection and variety of mezes and plates. Each serving was tasty and really good quality. The ambience was terrific and impressed with the space and size of the table we were given, this added to the great experience. Overall very good and definitely recommend and go back again. The only one critique I had was the serving size of one of the mains ( roast chicken), it was just a little small to reasonably share with 6 adults but indeed was very very tasty.

Deserts were very nice and coffees thereafter were fine barista quality

definitely go back for team and client lunches.

I also received very good feedback from the team so all in all happy that I got to make my team happy by them experiencing a really great lunch dining experience.

keep up the good work

regards,

John

Enjoyed the $100 banquet with friends for lunch with accompanying wines suggested by staff. Was great value for money, delicious food and wine and wonderful friendly service. Would thoroughly recommend it but make sure you go there hungry as there is a lot of food! Did not need dinner that night.

The buffet option was fabulous , provided a taste of their more popular dishes. The rotisserie and each tapas dish was extremely tasty & well presented. The wine list extensive with some exceptional wines form Spain and Italy . The waitresses knowledge of wine from each of the regions were very good and her recommendation was fabulous. Would highly recommend this restaurant to foodies as a must try restaurant.

If you offer the pre theatre option staff must ensure the food is managed so patrons can make the show! We had to remind wait staff we had a concert at 7 on several occasions.....desert had not been provided 7 minutes prior to the concert start time so we suggested we come back after. Not an option for the wait staff so we gulped down a spoonful of ice cream as we raced out the door.

Very different to service on previous occasions.
