One of the few fairly-priced restaurants in Chora of Folegandros (most of them are pricey), and one of the two best "matsata" (local pasta) dishes I had in the island. Very good barbecue, as well, I enjoyed it every single time.

The food was not bad, but nothing special compared to many of the great meals we've had so far in the islands. And the service was bored and indifferent, although they shut down for the season the next day so that may have had something to do with it.

Being quite demanding lately i would say is just a tavern. Not bad though.In a 'good' location can offer you a variety of products. A lot of tastes to have but i guess nothing so special without meaning you dont have to try it.

We had lunch here and it was very good. Just traditional Greek food and as it was lunch some items were not available but what we ordered was excellent. It was also nice and quiet at lunch time. The only downside was the waitress seemed to have lost her personality. However as we were there to eat and the food... More

There are several large squares in Chora and the Melissa is to be found in one of them. The tables are in the centre of the square under the trees. The restaurant is one of three or four in the square, but seems to be one of the more popular ones. The food is pretty standard, but well done.

My wife and I sat in the main square one night and had a typical Greek taverna meal at this restaurant. The food was similar to most other places on the island. The only special thing we enjoyed was seeing the great amount of all sorts of people walking around the square. Very noisy.

We arrived in Folegandros in time for lunch and there are so many places to choose from, but we decided on Melissa's which shares its terrace with 2 other restaurants. We had a lovely black bean salad and grilled feta to start. I had the rabbit stifado with rice which was unbelievably tasty; the hubster had tigania, which is pork... More
