The 5 dishes menu was different cuisine, the taste was good, quantities eloquent but the price is too much for the restaurant, it is great and different but there are many restaurants in Amersfoort with great food

We were here to celebrate my birthday and it totally worth it! Starting with the service and ending with the food everything was good. The staff is friendly and it can advice you on your possible choice of food or wine. When the food arrived my first reaction was"Gosh! I'm sorry I have to eat you, you look perfect!" It... More

Slightly experimental international kitchen. I had a starter and a steak for the main course, but service and serving was horribly slow. We waited 25 min. just order and another 45-50 min. to get the starters - and another 45 min. for the main course - spending a total for more than 2½ hours for a simple serving is simply... More

Absolutely fantastic from start to finish, we ordered the 3 course tasting menu with accompanying wines for each course. Each meal was a surprise, although the waitress had taken into account any dislikes first, the wines that complimented each course were absolutely delicious and the staff were extremely knowledgeable about the wines and their origins. There was a complementary little... More

Even after reading the menu carefully, Merlot gives a haute cuisine twist to the dish. And service is attentive and polite.

We had a big group and everyone had the 6 course tasting menu. The service was efficient and friendly, the food was superb: tasty, well presented and original. A real treat! The stand out course was the Aberdeen Angus steak which was a generous size for a tasting menu. Everyone had a superb meal.

We have had numerous experiences at Merlot; Owner Vincent chaired the Amersfoort's Masters of Business many times of which I was introduced once. The place is Zen and good for business meetings. Quality of the food is good, but the Wine experience is even better. Could this be a future Wine Bar with food delicatessen instead of a restaurant with... More

With a party of 5 we had our Christmas dinner at Merlot. Arrived as one of the first guests. We enjoyed a good glass of champagne. All of us had the 5 course menu with wines by the glass for each course. The menu was great, good taste, well proportioned and having that extra you wish/expect for Christmas. The restaurant...
