The night we took over Meli Melo

There were 16 of us for Easter 2015. I phoned Marc at Meli Melo to book. We had been before several times as a couple or just with a few friends and always had a good meal. He said "you can have the whole restaurant to yourselves'. We had a most magnificent meal. He managed to serve us all at... read more

For those of you who find this place better we keep it to ourselves. Everything about the place and service and food is excellent. They know how to create superb dishes and the price is very fair based on the quality you get.

The restaurant opens at "Spanish" hours, this is at 19:00. The reception was quite good. We had taken as a main course beaf Angus, actually the most expensive dish on the menu: 24 euros. And it was worth that price! We had taken also a good wine. Too bad, the waiter did not know this wine! The fries were very... More

Overall this is probably my favourite place to eat in Moraira. Its quite small with only 30-40 seats, so booking in advance is essential. It certainly doesn’t have the best location, but more than compensates for that by the quality of the food, which has always been excellent. The owner is a top chef from Belgium trained in the classical... More

My wife and I went to Meli Melo last night to celebrate her birthday and we had a lovely evening. The place is a bit 'twee' and old fashioned in a bit of a commercial run down area but does have good parking outside. It is only small inside and as this was late october it was too cold to... More

Myself and my partner had been staying in Moraira for a week and on our last evening we decided to try Meli Melo. Situated along the main road, it is not instantly noticeable as it has quite a small front. Don't be put off by the road-side location because once seated you are in a nicely lit, romantic setting. None... More

This place is run by a couple from Belgium and is one of our favourites. The husband is a superb chef, whilst the wife is extremely attentive and professional at the tables. The menu is regularly updated and it is sometimes quite hard to make a selection as several items appeal. The bill is normally a little below what food... More

If you are visiting Moraira in the summer months, pay them a visit. Well worth spending an hour or so under the canopy, enjoying a variety of tapas with a jug of sangria. Easy going and child friendly.

At long last my friends who live in Moreira took me to this restaurant which they frequently visit and rave about. Reservations are a must as it is extremely popular with the residents of this area. Ingrid is front of restaurant and gave us a real nice welcome and a great choice of daily specialities which change according to season... More

At last we got a table! Months of missing a supper here because of not making a reservation. Great great food. Chef made up an instant pasta dish to the liking of my vegetarian friend....very much appreciated. Wonderful service. Will definitely book again.
