Wait staff friendly and helpful. We ate here twice. The food was good, served quickly, with a pleasant attitude. The tables are right on the water with great views.

Fab place to sit, relax and enjoy fantastic food whilst bathing in the luxury of a warm and friendly welcome. We eat at Melissos on a regular basis in both May and September. As far as we're concerned we could not do better.

Such a nice and authentic restaurant, very good food (we ordered the sea bass (lavraki), salads, dakos ( homemade bread), pasta, pizza and chicken) all was very fresh and tasty. The price was fair and the service was great.

Really nice view when sitting at this restaurant. The starters are better than the main courses- recommend the zukini burgers and tziki. The chicken souvlaki was rather dry and tasteless. Nice, quiet place to have lunch on the water and with a beautiful view
