We had booked a table on the patio, but when we arrived, nothing was set for us. We got a table after waiting >10 min. When we finally sat at the table, it took an incredibly long time to get to see the menu, then it took a long time before we could order drinks, a lot of waving of the hand was involved. I had time to asked twice where our drinks were before we finally got them, mind you, it was not THAT busy! The food? Now that's a whole different matter, the food at this place is fantastic. And it's an absolute shame that the terrible service is dragging this place down and a reason for me not to come back.

Merwah is one of the newer restaurants in Linköping. It serves Lebanese/Mediterranean food in a cosy environment. During lunch hours the offer a buffet which is very good value. In the evening I would suggest one of the tasting menus, they are interesting. Be aware that the ones with many dishes can be something of a challenge, it is more food than it seems! Service was good during our visits to the restaurant. They also have a nice wine list. We tried Lebanese wine and it was absolutely ok. The only real disadvantage I can find is that you are going to smell of garlic a couple of days after the dinner.....

This restaurant offers great Mediterranean food with lots of variety and tasty. Humongous quantity of each dish. Service is warm and pleasing with servers going out of their way to make you comfortable. Would recommend that you eat here even if you are visiting for 1 day.

We stopped there as we are fond of libanese cuisine. The staff is extremely kind. we had Meze (12 dishes) and a mixed grill. to close then with a baklava and mint tea (menu n°3). everything was very good, plentiful and tasty! Inside there is a realy typical atmosphere.
we really reccomand to go!

As a vegetarian and gluten intolerant person you can find a full meal here. Sadly the food is not very interesting so if you are looking for a culinary experience as a vegetarian and gluten intolerant person this is not the place to go.

Minus:
- Hard to get noticed by waiters (took 40minutes to get a menu and water).
- Hard to get food (took 2h 15min) to get food.
- When food came the potatoes and fries were still raw/under cooked.
- Food was under spiced.
- The falafel seemd to not have been made in their kitchen but pre-bought and heated.

Plus:
+ Nice decorations.
+ Nice music.
+ When the waitors finally understood that we were annoyed about the wait and after some discussion with the manager we got the food for half price.
