We found this place on-line on another similar website to Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. I would call it French bistro with a twist of Japanese (not Aussie). It is a little on the expensive side but the food served is worth the extra dollars, especially with the BYO system where they charge $5 corkage per bottle. We rang... More

We went to the Great Mellie after reading all the good reviews on Trip Advisor. The overall experience was very disappointing .You pay top price for food which you can't really complaint about but doesn't fulfil the expectation. We had the quail which they were supposed to be served in truffle juices... It was nothing more than roasted quail legs... More

Great Mellie serves simple, yet well prepared, French Bistro food. The restaurant is tucked away near the Round House and plainly furnished. However, this is part of Great Mellie's charm. It reminds me of a small bistro in Tours or even parts of Paris. The food is very good with offerings such as Duckling Breast in High Spirits which includes... More

what a nice surprise this restaurant was! Set in a 'cave like' restaurant is this little place on High Street away from the busy market end. The food is french bistro done beautifully. Nothing amazing or different but very enjoyable for its simplicity. Highly recommend the duck. Nice change from the usual stuff along the cappucino strip

We went for a second time to the Great Mellie. It was a last minute thing, but they had a cancellation and we had a table for 2. The food was good as it was for our last visit. The service however was as bad as I have had in any restaurant of this class. All but 1 of the... More

Good French food - not overpriced - and byo - what's not to like? We all had the set menu. Corkage is $5 per bottle or two cans of beer. After ordering there was a complimentary mini mushroom soup amuse-bouche, then the menu. First pasta filled with pumpkin and slices of truffle. Main course was a small sirloin but the... More

A party of 12 of us went to this restaurant for a special birthday and had the Discovery Menu. The food was fabulous! Small serves but you do leave full by the time you have had all the courses. Each course leaves you wanting more. Two of the party were gluten free and catered for beautifully. Service was attentive and... More
