This is my first visit to Merci Marcel. We ordered soba salad, french toast and Ravioles de Royans. Food arrived with nice presentation and it was delicious. The Ravioles De Royans was exceptionally good. We love the atmosphere so we stayed on for cheese and wine for the rest of the afternoon. The staffs were very attentive and helpful. Would definitely visit again!
The ambience of the cafe is nice and decoration is homely. The service is good. Generally the main course more of quality than quantity. A total new refreshing taste as compared to other cafes that I’ve tried. Ordered the red snapper, angus beef, crab tartine, ravioles, Creme brûlée. Highly recommended for a new taste experience and also preferably to share the food.
Delicious French food in a cosy homely interior setting. Do be aware that French cuisine portion is smaller and pricier compared to the mass market restaurants. Worth a visit for that indulgence treat once in a while. Reservations is strongly recommended as waiting times can be long during peak periods.
Love the ambience and the staff were all relatively friendly. Would recommend it for catch ups and chilling sessions but not birthday celebrations that involves bringing a cake from outside. There will be a ‘corkage’ fee of $15. It is the first time experiencing it but maybe plan in advance and work around it if you are celebrating birthdays there.
I had dinner with two friends at Merci Marcel. We liked the cozy French ambiance. Foods were tasty and prices were reasonable. A Good place for casual dinner with friends.
Food is amazing! Ambience great and overall service even better - only improvement would be the order of when the food comes out - the sides came before some of the mains - eventhough most plates are for sharing - it makes more sense to have the sides dishes come with the mains or at least around the same time
Merci Marcel's dinner menu is made for sharing. We ordered the cheese croquettee, red snapper and seasoned mushrooms (this is really good!). Will be back for their brunch!
Incredibly warm and friendly service, food divine also. We had booked for 4 and had a last minute addition, which despite some logistical challenges (they were literally out of furniture) they made happen. The waitstaff knew the food and wine well, and each dish was superb.
Amazing ambience and food! Not your typical run of the mill cafes with mediocre food. For afternoon tea we had crab gratin, fries and passion fruit creme brulee, all of which taste as good as they sounded on the menu. Will revisit for lunch/dinner some day.
Never a disappointment whether it’s the food, the service or the atmosphere! I’ve been here umpteen times and I have no intention to ever stop. Can’t wait to check out the new Club Street location next - I expect that menu to be no less spectacular.
