Very nice indeed (although it pains me to admit it!)

I was extremely critical about Mels being the no1 restaurant in Lassi, when there are so many lovely Greek restaurants around, however, now I have been I can see why people like it so much. What they do, they do very, very well. We went once for a drink and ice cream, once for breakfast, and the... read more

Morning, noon or night Mel's has something to offer! We regularly call here during our stay, at various times of the day, the food and service are both always excellent. It is an American themed diner but don't let that detract from what it has to offer. If you want Beef Stifado, go elsewhere, if you want excellent freshly made... More

Came here on our last night. Got a bit bored of all the other restaurants offering the same thing. I ordered a special hot dog. Yes I know it sounds like cheap processed food but it really was exquisite, probably the best hot dog I have ever eaten. It came with some delicious cheese and some bacon and BBQ sauce.... More

We love Mel's diner we call in most days as we stay in an apartment on the Fanari Road (Emmas Studio's) After a good ten minute walk a nice cold Mythos is very welcomed. We have eaten there a few times too, food is really delicious. Greek pizza is my favourite. Can definately recommend!!!

I'm not sure if Mel's should be in the same category as the other tavernas as it is mostly a cafe/diner but don't let that put you off. Delicious salads, burgers and sandwiches and really friendly service. We had many lunches there and were never disappointed. Try the milkshakes, yum!

Went for lunch and it was lovely, dearer than the rest but not too pricy! End of the road, as your heading to Argistoli.

A lovely place for breakfast and I would imagine would be great for lunch, personally for us I wouldn't go for dinner. The food was fab, service was great and personal. We map of the island on our table and our waitress offered to give us help with our day if we wanted it. A lovely personal touch showing how... More
