    We had a lovely celebration lunch at Mercury for 5 guests. The food was delicious and its presentation was excellent. The view and dining space was very airy and comfortable. The waitresses were attentive, happy to accommodate sauce requests and very friendly. My only comment would be the portion sizes with respect to the price - it would be nice to have 2 halves of a hardboiled egg versus only half, the cake for dessert is a finger slice though the crumbs and berry coulis fill much of the plate. It feels like the portions are small for the sake of being small, so that it's "fancy".

    I can only give 1 star rating as I booked a high tea at the Melbourne Museum and this was highlighted in the booking form. Despite receiving a reminder, when I arrived I was advised that the high tea was connected to the exhibition so was no longer being served (as the exhibition had finished). However, despite booking nearly two weeks earlier (when the exhibition was still on) no one followed up to advise me of this. It seemed more convenient to blame both the IT system and the Melbourne Museum - despite the booking showing that it was high tea that was booked.

    All I can say is WOW!!. My friend and I turned up on time expecting the Titanic experience and High Tea as I had book a month before and was confirmed by txt that very morning. What was potentially a complete disaster was turned around by the very sweet and respectful manager Nattapon who was just as confused as we were. After confirming with him that I would send him all the correspondence I have regarding the booking and he ensured me that he would pass on to management. So, we decided to stay for lunch. We then received the best service and most wonderful food while enjoying views of a glorious day in Melbourne. I intend returning to this venue with friends and family very soon. I just hope that OpenTable honor the refund and return my money very soon.

    The high tea was not very nice the scones were good, coffee and tea were fine and sandwiches were good, also the macaroons were nice but something was amiss with the other warm food and the cakes

    Food and service was outstanding. We felt like we were in a fish bowl with everyone walking out of the Titanic exhibition walking past. Some sort of screen would have been beneficial

    We attended the Titanic High Tea. The service from all staff was outstanding. The food exquisite by flavor, artistry and size. Exactly what we were hoping for. My only disappointment was that the 'cafe' was in amongst the pedestrian pathways which was a bit raw and unexpected. I had needed assistance to co-ordinate the times for the High Tea and tour being responsible for an adult with a level of disability. Again from both booking areas, I was given great understanding and assistance. Thank you to all involved. An enjoyable and memorable day.

    It was nearly great but what put us off was when the manager came to us & told us we need to leave “like right now”.. we were told the sitting was only 90mins. We got that. But we were having a good time & she just came to our table & handed us the bill. Usually, they would give us a 10-15min heads up. Besides, our coffee had just arrived. She didn’t even tell us to finish them. Good thing, our server told us to take our time & finish our drinks. The former was a bit rude & inconsiderate.

    A lovely afternoon tea experience after visiting the Titanic Exhibition at the Melbourne Museum. The service was excellent and the food was all delicious. We had the vegetarian menu and it was just lovely. I think unlimited pots of tea and coffee was great too. This meant you could take your time to indulge in all the goodies with a fresh drink.i would definitely recommend this experience. Well done to the team!
