If two heads are better than one, then two cuisine-noggins fused into one restaurant-body are also better than one. Polycephalify your palate with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Spanish-Italian fusion fare at Merche! in Cypress.

Merche! stuffs slack stomachs with a handcrafted blend of Spanish, Italian, and Mediterranean flavors made from fresh ingredients. The menu menaces hunger pangs with a range of meaty entrees, the heftiest of which might be the colossal pork chop alla Jim, 28 ounces of pork-chop paradise massaged with seasonings and emblazoned before being carved tableside in front of an audience of roasted potatoes and caramelized cippolini onions ($24). Plates swoon at the sight the viva caliente! pizza, a wood-fired dough disk topped with rotisserie chicken, chipotle mayonnaise, caramelized onions, jalapeños, and lime-cilantro sauce ($11), and forks twirl with excitement when faced with the tender pasta, prosciutto, capers, grape tomatoes, and white-wine sauce forming the linguini alla Merche! ($12).

To aid digestion without jumping on a trampoline, finish with a signature soufflé dressed in chocolate, cinnamon, or Grand Marnier ($8). Meanwhile, nomadic noshers can fight the tyranny of ceilings on the stone patio, where a large fireplace warms hands and running shoes.


Carefully merging a trio of culinary traditions, Merche! showcases its fresh fusion cuisine with Spanish-, Italian-, and Mediterranean–inspired dishes. In the dining room, guests can stare deeply into the large mosaic circle baring the eatery’s name while waiting for entrees such as buttered snapper and chicken piccata to emerge. Small plates of bruschetta and beef empanadas are suited for sharing on the patio, where light from a fireplace dances across pale stone walls, or luring raccoons into a rival’s canoe.

Customer Reviews

Merche! is a favorite restaurant choice for a fine dinner in a pleasant and quiet (but not stuffy) atmosphere. The menu is varied and the souffle dessert (ask if it can be prepared when you are ordering) is a special treat we really look forward to!

Great food! I got the filet and my husband got the ahi tuna. Both had wood-fired flavor and sides that complimented well. Merche has an inviting atmosphere, also. Great date restaurant, quiet, and welcoming. Very friendly staff.
