“A family run gem!”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

What a charming, friendly and accommodating restaurant. The owner and his family make you feel like you are in their home. The prices are ridiculously cheap(you almost want to tell them to raise them…almost) Hot from the oven home made chips are served with an assortment of salsa's when you sit down. The bar is modest but they make good generous sized cocktails…try the mango Margherita! My favorite dish was the Portuguese Shrimps…four enormous shrimps wrapped in bacon and cheese and then deep fried. We had that along with a whole fried snapper and ceviche…what a meal!

“Delicious food, great staff”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

This little restaurant was a fun find. We liked everything about it from the young staff to the delicious food (none of us are seafood lovers and so we all had entrees that were either vegetarian or chicken) to the relaxing ambience. The tortilla soup was excellent as were the fajitas.

“Wonderful little athentic Mexican dining”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

A little off the main areas which is good as already very busy as if in main part of town it would be overwelmed as it is so good. Had the cheese infused jumbo prawns wrapped in bacon.One of the best meals we HAVE EVER HAD. prices were reasonable and serving staff very attentive.The owner Mellisa was there and came around to make sure all was good. A must in PV

“Good atmosphere and extra friendly staff”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

This place is a little hidden treasure. Though it took our group of ten more then 20 minutes to find, the confusion on directions was well worth it. The staff were all very friendly and were willing to help with any of our needs. Though Melissa's is known for it's seafood, most of our group did not order it. Most people ordered steak or fajitas and it was all enjoyed!
