We've been here several times for lunch and dinner. It's never been full whenever we've been in there, although the parking lot is very often full. The service has always been OK whenever we've been there. The food is Mediterranean in style with more of a tilt towards Greek. The food is prepared adequately, but there's been nothing about the...

Love the atmosphere, the friendly servers and the best Greek food in town. One of my favourite places to meet friends or a quiet night with my husband. It is always a wonderful experience.

We nearly gave this place a miss as it looks like an ugly grey box set on the side of a petrol forecourt without an obvious door and no menu displayed outside. There wasn't even a welcoming sign on the inner door and we wondered if we were entering some dark drug den!!However inside it was a great surprise -... More

We went to Melizana for a light dinner after a long drive. The menu is definitely Greek. The service is excellent. The decor is subdued but classy and intimate. I enjoyed an excellent Greek salad with a chicken souvlaki and my friend had a "twisted" spanakopita . Our choices were perfect! Everything on the menu looked tempting and I would... More

Recently had a delicious lunch at the Melizana with three others. I had the pork Pita Wrap which was very good and my friends had other appetizers and salad. Everyone was very pleased with the amount of food and the good taste of it

Only been here once for dinner but it was great. I love the classy and romantic atmosphere. I got the pork souvlaki dinner and it was phenomenal! My boyfriend got the chicken parm and he thought it was very plain unfortunately. We shared the baklava for dessert and it was soo delicious! They also had yummy cocktails. I will definitely...

Had a couple of their valentine specials. Steak and shrimp were excellent and the mushroom risotto is always good. Did not have the bean soup today, settled with beef barley. All in all was another good supper here. All four times I have been there have always been good service and good food. Would recommend.

We took my Mother in Law to Melizana's for her Birthday last week and we loved our experience. The decor is lovely and understated. We had Saganaki (flaming cheese!) and calamari to start - both were excellent! I enjoyed the chicken souvlaki platter, my partner had the pasta special and MIL had the lambchops! We were all very happy with... More
