Food is on the pricier side but tasty. Ambiance was nice and the French music was good too. Order their coffee! I promise, you won’t be disappointed. Good selection of French cheeses and French wines. Online menu wasn’t well accepted by the older folks but...they do provide a hard copy menu. Service was fantastic, lot of greeting and welcoming smiles. Me and my parents were well taken by the team. They provided $1 free flow of premium water, support a cleaner planet and they mentioned half of the revenue will go for project tree planting in Indonesia👍I suggest you reserve a good table online before you come. We will be back definitely. And big thanks to Shung, such a lovely person!More

Went in the evening where it was not very crowded. Did not have to Q in line. Pizza and coffee was great. Service was great too . Menu could have been more extensive with more choices.

I wanted to look for a quieter place to read my book and chanced upon this cafe. The staff were very friendly. I chose and outdoor seating but when it got a bit hotter, one of the waiters offered the window seating inside and helped...move my drink and bag in. Would def come by again if I'm in the area!More

I live locally to Merci Marcel, so I’ve been a number of times since it opened. Along the way they have changed concepts from a casual French-Japanese restaurant to something closer to a cafe with all-day dining. So, now it is Impossible Burgers and Mac...and Cheese and Caesar Salad with Chicken. They still have a great wine list and full bar, but the menu has moved from chef-driven to easy-to-produce formula. It is what it is, and sometimes a burger or salad hits the spot, but everything else went more casual with the changes, including the service. There is really no excuse for bringing the meals out for a table with different timings, but the night we were there one us was served more than 15 minutes later than the others. That just annoys everyone at the table who is polite enough to wait until everyone is served before starting to eat. Because it’s “casual”, that means servers standing in one spot and handing plates around, cutlery in a bucket and guests trying to intercept staff if you want your water refilled. Again, it is what it is, but we actually sent a “green risotto” back for being dry (and, to be honest, tasteless) and it was comped from our bill. Another odd moment… One of our friends was visiting from overseas and didn’t have data on her phone (because “casual” means QR-code menus) and the suggestion from our server was to use a neighbouring restaurant’s unlocked wifi because it would be “easier”. I suspect that neighbouring restaurant, which has a similar menu, would have been a better dining experience. I’m all for restaurants surviving, so I understand Merci Marcel’s decision to serve breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon coffees and dinners. I understand the mid-tier pricing and keeping it casual. I understand the menu changing to dishes which can be pre-prepped and don’t require much kitchen skill. But, I think you can do that AND provide a reasonable dining experience. With the quality of the food and service, we thought this meal at Merci Marcel would probably be our last. Pity, because it was a great little local restaurant.More

The service by the crew were superb. Initially we had a table at the patio and a little warm. The crew moved us to the indoor dining immediately when there was empty table. The crew can remember all our plate n glass when shifting. The...food was served fast and fantastic. Will definitely go again.More
