“The TOP of the TOP”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

I cannot find the words to express how gorgeous were our (several) meals at the Melenos Lindos restaurant. Impeccable service. New menu every day with fresh green salad from the garden, atypic way of presenting and decorating the plates, a real show on the table for each plate. The view is fantastic and we were never tired to admire the clear blue water of the bay.
The staff is very friendly but also professional, they know how to describe the various choices and they take care of children. You always get a smile, even when they are so busy.
This place is really the TOP !

“Faultless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Idyllic location with views of acropolis, the ocean and everything traditionally Greek. Excellent quality food and service. Have never tasted such beautifully prepared lamb shanks before.

“...I need to say that it is not what I have expected...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I have to admit that the atmosphere and the service was quite good.
The view and the location is excellent!
As for the food, I also need to say that it is overrated!!!
I am Greek and as my father is a professional fisherman, I could tell immediately that some of the seafood is not fresh but frozen.
The prices were very high!!! And this is the reason I would demand the quality of the food to be the same...!
I wouldn't recommend it...I have invited friends from Italy to enjoy the best of our food but it was something that didn't happen...
I am really sorry for the above comments but you need to try harder...

It is a shame that you did niot enjoy as much your dinner although the fish is always fresh in Melenos.It can be different as the status of the restaurant cannot accept that to happen.

“Melenos Lindos - stunning !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Last week we spent a gorgeous week in Lindos. One evening we truly enjoyed a wonderful dinner, with a stunning view on the Acropolis. We booked a table for two one day in advance and when seated we were assigned a nice, quit table at the open terrace.
The staff was extremely friendly, helped us selecting a truly excellent was which was a perfect match with the superb food. Prices are in line with the quality of the food, price for the wine was fair market price so not overcharged at all.
Next time we are in Lindos, we will no longer search for a restaurant, we have made up our mind already.

Thanks Melenos team !

“Food matches view - stupendous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

On our recent holiday to Lindos we were privileged to dine at Melenos restaurant twice. On both occasions we experienced the best meals of our trip in terms of fine, but affordable, dining. The menu selection was impressive as was the wine list. We chose Greek wines which were fabulous.

The views from the terrace are extraordinary and a gentle breeze wafted through the sheer hand printed curtains. The beautiful lanterns added to the magical atmosphere.

The host Mr Melenos along with his team, welcomed us and ensured an unforgettable experience.

Thank you to the team.
