Having read trip advisor reports on this Italian I felt it was worth a visit and in fact we went twice! The Jolly Harbour area in my opinion is a let down and beside the former casino I was approached asking for money when I went past on a number of occasions. I appreciate it was out of season but...

The food and service was excellent! The extra little touches, like having your drinks served by the bar manager/person, as opposed to the waitress, add a little extra to the experience! The food was very good. My wife had the liver, which was excellent and I had the seafood special, which was also very nice. A little more expensive than... More

Good value, good friendly service. The kids loved the pizza especially the crispy duck one. We went three times in our two week stay and each time the service and food was consistently good.

the food and service were excellent, but it's an outdoor restaurant at a marina and it can get very hot and uncomfortable.

Ventured down to the harbour from Jolly Beach resort in the morning to take some photos and the owner (Adrian) was cleaning his restaurant and after a friendly chat with him I took my wife there that evening. We got a table easily as quiet but not as quiet as the other restaurants (island quiet period) and were quickly served.... More

Fantastic food, friendly and attentive service. Thanks Adrian we hope to come again although 6 out 10 evening meals with you tells the story more than reams of review. Many thanks the Martin's from ,York, England.

We regularly eat at this restaurant located by Jolly Harbour Marina. We have always enjoyed the food & superb service. At a recent birthday celebration , the owners arranged a superb surprise party.

What a beautiful setting first of all. Situated right on the docks of jolly harbour and al fresco dining, this beautiful restaurant is lit with fairy lights and candles, making it such a pleasure to experience. The staff are a delight. With a wicked sense of humour and good food and wine knowledge. The portions are huge! So very tasty.... More

We visted Melini's while staying at Sugar Ridge and had a fabulous time. We actually went back because it was so good. We met both owners and Adrian even drove us back to our hotel after dinner the first night. The staff was nice and Milie, one of the servers, even invited us to come to church with her, which...

But better late than never! These guys have got a great set up, good food, right mood, great wine and lots of fun. We are here at least three times during our two week stay at Jolly Beach and thoroughly recommend for a lovely relaxing evening. I must admit after enjoying our first night there we polished off a few... More
