It was great to have so much lovely fish to choose from! I went for oysters followed by Dover sole & my friend opted for scallops followed by sea bass- all of which were beautifully cooked (except the oysters of course) and fresh. Lovely & attentive service topped with a sea view too- the perfect way to round off our stay in Brighton!

The menu was excellent and the food was better. We struggled to finish the main course as it was so large. However, it was so tasty we didn't want to leave a scrap. The staff were attentive and talkative. They made us very welcome. We will definitely go back here.

We stopped at Melrose for lunch and liked the relaxed atmosphere and attitude of our waiter while also being attentive. He was an older gentleman who was very charismatic and made the afternoon for us. We tried the pepper steak, tiger prawns and scallops and we were happy with all of it.

Me and my partner visited this place last night, vhich was a week day. We have really fancied a fish and we were heading for Regency restaurant next door but decided to try melrose. What a mistake! Even though food was tasty, the service spoiled it all..the young Italian waitress looked she is stoned or drunk but we assumed she was just tired from long day serving in the sun...she forgot to give us napkins and talked just silly. .the waiter (older gentleman) actually put our starters in front of people at the next table and then gave it to us without asking which starter is for who..anyway the whole thing was just little flustered and chaotic and to top it of, when we asked for bill, we paid in cash and we had to wait for our change for over 15 most embarrassing minutes...and then we were asked : 'how much money are we waiting for!' we are guessing that this was their attempt to earn some tips, un- deserved may I add but out of principles we asked for our money and left..after all, service charge was included in the bill. Advice; pay by card only! You may even get decent bill printed like it should be and not written by hand.! Sooo embarrassing. ..sadly.
