Merchants a great place and offers great value for money but lately their parmas are a bit hit and miss on flavour and quality. The chips on the side are really unevenly plated. But I will go again.

both times I have been there the food was great and the staff are the best, the food is cheap but ample portions and top notch, I brought 2 friends with us last time and the are fussy people, they said its the best food they have tasted in quite some time, one of the best places on the peninsula for price, service and quality, try it you wont be disappointed

Went on pizzas and sides night; the food was generous and tasty, the price was excellent. Excellent service as well, love the venue as well, cosy and intimate, but our group of 8 were comfortable.
Only minor issue was we got a few plates of sides and pizzas to share amongst us all, and found the table was a little small for all the food we ordered.
It wasn't that big of an issue though; everything else was just excellent. Would definitely go back, keen to try another night for different foods.

Food was yummy, no gluten free option for pizza night so had to have gluten. From ordering to receiving last item took 55 minutes. Alcohol is very expensive to compensate for cheap meals.

The menu and staff were great but the food was cold when it arrived and half of the people I was with didn’t get there food untill 2 hours after eating it. We asked where our 2 tacos were that we were still waiting for when the cake had come out. We asked 4 times and by the 5th time we asked for a refund, the refund came with the tacos.
The waiters were nice about it all and the bartender is an awesome guy.

Great place for good value food in a area like Mornington were going out can be expensive.

We had one vegan on the table and nothing was too much to make her a yummy dinner that didn't make her feel out of place.

The only downside is no straws - I get the save the planet thing -But an alternative would of been helpful. Paper?? Metal? Just might have bough another drink if it didn't take me so long to drink the first. (Being very picky so just personal feedback)

Thank you

We ordered 3 of the 250gm porterhouse steaks. 1 medium and 2 medium rare.
They all came out crucified on the outside, and raw on the inside.
We sent them back.
2nd round was just as crucified outside. And about half the steak (the thinner pieces) rare-medium rare. The rest was barely room temperature.

Very poor cooking for a "speciality night"

The "spicy wings" were about as spicy as salt

Great price to go out rather than pay the same for a Maccas. Lass than $60 for dinner & drinks for 4 adults, pitched well for midweek dining.

The place was nice and the staff were very friendly, even after getting our order wrong. It was very slow though, there needed to be extra bar staff just for serving drinks. Nice though.

I booked few weeks before for a large table of 18 but moved further in the resaurant due to cold wind through front door
Staff were great and accommodating to requests
The very meaty burger however was unedible according to my teenage son as nothing but thick meat patties in a bun unfortunately

$4;90 Parma night. Ordering food was a long line at bar. Barman not only took food orders but also had to serve drinks. Very busy. He remained pleasant and friendly and very apologetic.
He had to run to back twice in 10 minutes as run out of bottled wines suggesting poor forplanning.
Meals were lovely , fresh and hot.
Noisy but not overbearing.
Great for a quick bite and friend catch up.

Really enjoyed our visit for the Burger night. The wings were the best surprise on Burger night, best tasting buffalo wings on the Peninsula. The selection and choice of burgers was brilliant. Staff were just lovely, very friendly and attentive. Food service was fast. Great evening and nice atmosphere.

The food was nice and the wait staff friendly, but it took well over an hour for our dinner arrive after we ordered. We were given a free round of drinks to compensate, but that’s not the point. Don’t know if I’d bother with it again....
