Good food but expensive

I love the food. The steak was cooked well and tender. The portions were just right. Though expensive, the experience was nice. I love the ambiance and interiors. It was a lovely place. The service crew were friendly and efficient.

When I saw the menu and prices I thought it must be a joke. Is this some sort of rich person's haven where the prices are artificially high to keep the riff raff out so the wealthy can dine in private? I was intrigued so I ordered the rib eye expecting to be wowed and was extremely disappointed. Seriously, I... More

Melo's is known for its great steak/meat selections and it's true -- they don't disappoint! We dined here during dinner and we had a great meal; the servers were even helpful in assisting us on how we can eat and slice our way through one of their specially-prepared steaks. But despite the great meal, be aware that this place can... More

Melos, Burgos Circle, BGC The resto has a good ambiance.music was good. I was not happy with what I ate at all. I ordered escargot for my starter. Instead of cooking it in garlic, they put ready made fried garlic on top of the escargots, and no parsley except that the parsley was placed in the middle of the dish... More

Visited Melo's for lunch yesterday. Restaurant very quiet but the service was very slow. Nobody smiled. Eventually given 2 pieces of stale toasted bread and 2 small pats of pre-packed butter. Ordered soup and steak from the cart - wife ordered the Angus Burger. Soup was OK but full of MSG. Burger quite good but the bread was stale and... More

for a restaurant which asks for its client to pay 4 times more for a meat plate than neighborhood restaurants, my family and I found service and food adding up to a real bad experience. Meat is offered at prices ranging from PHP208 per ounce to PHP600 and more per ounce, so you look what size and weight of meat... More

Their much ballyhood black Angus steaks are just so-so. Not at all extraordinary. Despite frying most of the fat of the steaks we ordered, the steaks were still too fatty and the meat portion was not enough to satisfy. Service was very good though. Believe it or not my group was till hungry after eating sizeable steaks and we ate... More

Our latest visit here was to celebrate my husband's birthday, with family. Booking the last minute reservation for Sunday lunch was very easy. The beef, lamb, seafood, and veggies they use are always fresh and of good quality. Table service is attentive and responsive, though the occasional trainee needs to improve on his/her active listening and English language skills. Prep... More

I probably went there with the best company. Tried their angus. Good enough. But the location i'd say is perfect for a christmas weather. service was fine. Nothing extraordinary

You wouldn't normally look for a nice steak when you're in the Philppines but since it was recommended, why not? The ambience could be improved a little but the service was quite good. The steak itself was cooked properly (I had medium-rare) and was seasoned very well. Probably not one of my favorites but is worth a try if you're... More
