We enjoyed a great quiet and romantic dinner at Melini's. The service was perfectly timed and very attentive. The entrees were tasty and well prepared. The main courses were delicious and substantial plates! The wine list was varied and interesting.

The food at Melini's is great. Terrific choice and beautifully cooked. Also a great choice of excellent wines and spirits. The outlook onto the Harbour is lovely. Mark and Ady are great hosts and make you feel very welcome, they do everything they can to make your meal experience special. Would recommend a visit.

Looking for an evening meal out, we wandered around Jolly Harbour looking at the menus of all the recommended restaurants and settled on here for two reasons; a very friendly staff member took us through the menu, a senior member of staff said " we are not busy, no need to book but I will keep a table for you...

We loved this place, we were not too hungry so decided to share a pizza and salad between us. Everything was wonderful and we loved it. Loved the lights as well dangling down round the edge of the roof as well.

When we went to reserve for dinner we found the person we talked very unfriendly and was smoking in the dinning area (of course no one was eating then). We didn't feel like going back but then since our options nearby are limited we just decided to go as the reviews are all great. Our decision didn't disappoint us. We... More

We visit every year and are never disappointed. There is plenty of choice and the food is consistently good. Staff and service hit the right balance. We're looking forward to returning again next year. Thanks Mark and Adrian!

Beautiful location right in Jolly Harbor. My fiancé and I agreed that their eggplant parm was the best we've ever had. Coming from New Jersey. Huge compliment . Service was impeccable . I Highly recommend this restaurant for a wonderful meal.
