About The Merchant
Located near Event Cinemas + next to Mama Loco. We look out over Albany Lake on Don McKinnon Drive.
Again the team at the Merch make the entire evening awesome!!!!!
The food was great and good value for the quality of food! Waitresses were friendly, useful and ensured an enjoyable night for all. Will definitely return.
We had our valentines dinner at the merchant last night.The food, drinks and atmosphere are great but we're not impressed with their service, it took almost 1hr for them to served our foods. We understand their busy because its valentines day but its way too slow to serve the food, we have our reservation around 7:15pm but we had our dinner around 8:15pm or 8:20pm, all of us are starving that time. So we have to finished our food on or before 9pm because we have a movie to watch around 9pm. On the other hand, staffs are friendly and nice.
BEST bar and kitchen on the shore. Kindest, most hardworking staff and you cant resist the epic band.
Awesome food and amazing service!!!
Fantastic evening made very special by a wonderful balmy midsummer night. Everything was fabulous MARY-ANN
Lance, Lara and the staff made my birthday function night an awesome, memorable experience enjoyed by all.
Loved this place
I couldn’t fault the lunch today, was pretty amazing overall. The food was tops. Also Maddy(sp?) was awesome.
Ravlan was our waitress for the evening and she was absolutely amazing. Really attentative and always ensured that all of our guests had everything they wanted. A true asset to your bar. Joe
Thought you served us well and in timely fashion as we had a big group.
Excellent service and table as requested by the window.
It was a lovely relaxing lunch.
Everything about our lunch booking was excellent, right from the initial booking up to the lunch event. Thank you for making it a success.
The service was amazing. So were the staff. I would 100% go back again thank for the amazing service 💜
My guest were very impressed with the service from the merchant family. The waitress and staff all had a wonderful personalised manner which enhanced the atmosphere. Thank you for the experience. We will be back
Lance and his team always take care of us whenever we head into the merchant
Was a great place to celebrate end of year and Xmas
We had a party of 20 and were seated inside. Food was great. The wait staff were very good. The drinks were a little slow to arrive but understandable given xmas rush, and the wait staff were apologetic which was really good. Good communication. The only down side, which I guess xant really be helped (yet) was the smoke coming in from outside while we ate. A great experience. Thank you from all at Downer ES Auckland. Cheers
Had a great time. It was very busy, but the service was good and friendly staff.
Best pub in the area by far. Excellent food.
Great night, would eat there again
All good as usual. :-)
Thank you to all the team at The Merchant. They set up a lovely Christmas atmosphere for our end of year function - way more than I was expecting. The food was absolutely fantastic, as was the service. Could not fault a thing!
Thanks team at Merchant. Sorry we had to rush to leave and I didn't get to stop in and thank you personally. Thanks for great service and accomodating our late-comer. Have a good Christmas Murray, on behalf of cbm (Christian Blind Mission International - www.cbmnz.org.nz)
