My wife and I visit this intimate bistro last evening at the suggestion of the relatives we were visiting in Gothenburg. Just a block and a half off the Avenyn I found this to be an extraordinarily pleasant experience. While I do not drink, they appeared to have a wide selection of beers, wines, and liquors.

We had duck and onion soup & chicken, all was very well prepared and tasted very nice. Enough portions and good merlot red wine. Average price for Gothenburg. Waiters were nice and friendly.

Very nice atmosphere, and great attentive staff with positive spirit. I tried frog legs for the first time, but did not like it even if it was well cooked. The snails as well as the duck liver was delicious though. The duck brest was fantastic, and the small cheese dish afterwards just right.

Had a light meal at this delightful establishment. No outdoor dining but it was rainy so that was fine. Salmon rolls were excellent !!

Having been here before, we brought a second family with us to Bistro Merlot when we were back in Göteborg. The first time we had a brilliant time as a couple. This time around the experience was slightly mixed. The two having the daily special (skewers) were a bit disappointed, both by the quality and the size of the portions.... More

The wines were good, but the food medium. The moule marienier I had was far too salty and some of the mussels were closed. Som do eat somewhere else.
