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

When in the Marina in Jolly Harbour I came to the restaurant most mornings for coffee and to use the excellent WiFi. Getting to be a bit of a regular the strength of the coffee I liked was known by the staff and was made just right for me, a very nice bit of service. Had dinner there several nights... More

I found Melini's three weeks ago and went to dine 12 times since. The food is deliciously tasty. Starters are amazing. Mains are the best. Very good service. Patient staff that recognize you after the first visit. Pat's service is outstanding. Blue bottle wine is a little expensive. We would have drank much more if it was EC$20 cheaper.

We went to Melini's several times in our 2 week break. We found the food consistently excellent (as apparently did the little black cat who enjoys sitting and staring at you with big eyes). We thought the prices were reasonable given location and portion sizes. Also found the menu choice to be much more varied and interesting than Mayday next... More

I thought the food was great, but a bit on the pricey side. The outdoor setting and ambience is excellent, and it is located in a convenient area within Jolly Harbour.

Had a great dinner at 8pm. Stayed down the road so this was a perfect location to grab a meal right in the marina. Nice waitstaff. Attentive, friendly. Food is excellent. Awesome and different types of pizzas to choose from. Decent mark up on the bottles of wine. Enjoyed a pizza to start, two entrees and a bottle of rose... More

This Italian eatery is the first restaurant we came across after the five minute walk from Jolly Harbour Resort. Brilliant spot with lovely lush views of the boats in the harbour. The restaurant owner is a charming Englishman from Portsmouth – he’s got his restaurant just right. The food is really good. I had two different pizzas with thin crispy... More
