We went here for an evening meal, fancying somewhere a bit quieter and out of town. The staff were attentive (although the chap in charge could have been a bit friendlier) and the service was overall very slick, with the waiter topping up your water before you had chance to yourself.

The food was good and on the whole we would recommend this place. It was perhaps a bit more expensive than other meals we had, considering we only had two courses though.

We had an afternoon drink at the Melina and decided to return for our evening meal. The view is amazing and our meal something special. The food was excellent and the service exceptional. Slightly more expensive than most restaurants I think that the Melina is a place for a special evening out.

This place provides you a lovely break away from the busy city center of Rethymnon. Located near the fortessa gives a good view of the city. Big menu that is not loaded with the usual tourist dishes. Food was wonderfull but the portions were massive. However prices are good and so is the house wine. Staff could have been a little bit more attentive.

This must be one of the best places to eat in town.
Situated at the top of the steps close to the entrance to the Fortessa, gives it a wonderful panoramic view.
Attentive, helpful and non fussy staff serve a wide selection of excellent food and wine.
Spend a few hours dining on an excellent value meal with the superb view of Rethymno.
