My kids normally don’t like new tastes but they loved Merkato! Added bonus was staff being so helpful and friendly. So that’s 3 big thumbs up.
Fun atmosphere, and attentive staff. The honey wine was tasty (first time trying it), and we left feeling very full and content. Would recommend this to anyone else.
