The last time we ran a Big Deal with the City Merchant restaurant, it was extremely popular. Rated a whopping 4.3/5 by 5pm bookers, this is what a couple of recent diners thought of their experiences at the City Merchant:
‘All round excellence. Loved everything about City Merchant, the service was fantastic, the food superb and value for money amazing. I can’t recommend this highly enough. I’ll definitely be back soon.’ Rating 5/5
‘Delicious food and very attentive but unobtrusive service.’ Rating 4.8/5
Today’s Big Deal would be perfect for a romantic dinner, a mighty fine lunch or a very satisfying pre-theatre meal.
Located on Candleriggs, City Merchant is incredibly handy for shows at the City Halls and Old Fruitmarket, not to mention the Tron Theatre.
If you haven’t been before then this is a fantastic chance to give the City Merchant a whirl.
