Just listened to my vertically challenged daughter explain how she was treated when she could not get up to the bar chairs, as no others were vacant. Then informed when they turned up a party of four for lunch, only another couple at the other table. Despite the lack of patronage at that time of the day, staff refused to... More

We called in early evening not feeling too hungry, but as we were flying later that evening we were not sure when our next meal would be. They have a good range of tapas reasonably priced for the size. Our waiter said we needed to order a few but decided to order a couple and see how we felt. Have... More

What is more off putting to a customer than unwelcome looks from ignorant staff that don't get that its the customer that pays their wage. Whilst the food might be great and all one is hardly left with anything but a bad taste in their mouth after the initial greeting or lack thereof...so a note to management, please weed out... More

What a super spot. Greeted on entry and made to feel very welcome. Ordered a pizza which was fresh, cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. The wine was chilled and there was a real buzz about the place. Will return- a sign of a lovely evening!

My 12yr old daughter and I entered Melt and were welcomed by a very attentive waiter. Music, décor and atmosphere was super cool. We had no reservations and it was a busy Friday night. He quickly provided us with a table for two. We had meatball pizza and a lovely pear and walnut with greens salad. It was inexpensive for... More

Inner city dining at its best. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. We were a walk in booking and there were 7 of us but the staff didn't make us feel guilty for asking if they had space for us. We decided to do the shared table menu and left it to them to work out the food. Everything... More

As a frequent business traveller I have dined at Melt on a number of occassions. The staff are extremely accommodating, especially to those who are on business and dining alone, the service is exceptional and overall the food and wine list is fantastic! I highly recommend the scallop pizza with truffles...absolutely delicious!
