    Thanks for great and efficient service all the time. The food and coffee great. One thing is that the outdoor table/chair picnic style wasnt good for our 90 year old aunt but we will know next time. Appreciate everything!

    The food seemed fairly cheap and unimaginative, very basic. I also don't expect to wait so long to receive drinks which we're ordered first, they came as meals were almost finished.

    Delicious brunch menu, we ate a breakfast burger, brunch stack and chicken burger from the lunch menu and all were good. Orange juice was fresh and a generous serve. Service was quick and efficient. Restaurant was very busy and table space wasn’t huge but this wouldn’t be enough to put me off visiting again and trying more from the menu.

    Had corn and zucchini fritters which were close to burnt on the outside and uncooked on the inside. The poached egg that came with it was overcooked. Staff were friendly and unobtrusive, I found the messages emblazoned on the wall above the bar area that said something to the effect that what a drunk girl says is what a sober girl thinks and that 'alcohol is cheaper than therapy' made it seem like a place where idiots would congregate.

    We met up with friends for brunch. Absolutely love this place. It’s the second time we’ve eaten here and wil definitely be back. My friend has special dietary requirements which they were very accommodating with. The food is delicious and the menu has a great selection for all tastes. Above all the service is brilliant! Everyone is happy and incredibly attentive. Thank you so much guys. We’re local and will always come back.

    Very good service -the staff were friendly and attentive. The food was okay- the bread wasn’t great. It was difficult to eat at that outside (table #60) as the table was far too low.

    We always have a great experience at Mercetta. The staff are friendly the food is always amazing and it has a great atmosphere. We had breakfast on New Years day and even though busy, our food was at a fantastic standard, we barely waited to be served and the food was out much faster than I could have thought.

    My friend and I were seated at a table which was in the sun, which was nice at first, but then we got hot. We asked the waitress if we could sit somewhere else and she was very helpful. We enjoyed our meal sitting under the trees out the back. Thankyou so much

    Couldn't fault service or food 10/10 but the overwhelming doggy carpet smell wasn't pleasant. We had a dog with us and we're very pleased that we could bring her, but maybe a deeper clean of the area would help.

    I have a dietary requirement that 99% of restaurants are happy to help me with. This establishment wasn’t interested in helping me with my simple request so I didn’t eat. I just had a coffee which was good while I watched the friends that I was with have their lunch

    Just okay. Wilted greens were mainly broccolini stalks and were tough, expected a nice slice of halloumi but got some scattered strips. Capsicum was super salty. Eggs were cooked well, poached had runny yolks. Soggy toast under eggs and pulled pork hock it looked like it had been soaked in water. Hopefully just one off issues. Coffee was good.

    Mercetta has a great vibe and the different dining areas make it a great experience. The service was great, however I was disappointed in the sandwich. The bread was stale and the filling wasn’t pleasant, however the sweet potato fries and sauce was delicious. The others in our group had the salad and fish and chips which they said was nice. Overall we had a good dining experience.

    Very popular and busy. Arrived 1/2 hour early and table was being used but when we came back I was recognised without reshowing booking so the recall was excellent. Was told there may be a delay with food delivery which was a good thing but they did extremely well and we were happy to wait as they did bring out the chips early! Overall a great place and will definitely go back. May even try it with my fur baby as they are pet friendly which is a great thing
