Small but comfy little restaurant with nice vistas over the city...well, if it wasn’t for the smoke! Food is traditionally Greek. Good servings of the usual dips and platters. Everything was fresh and tasty. Saganaki a bit salty. Our dinner would’ve been more enjoyable if it wasn’t for a very noisy group of young ladies celebrating a birthday. Given the small surroundings, things got noisier and noisiest as the night progressed. But I guess they were also entitled to a good evening! I tend to think that Melina’s is more suited for group parties than quiet dinners. However, there are no complaints about the food or service overall. The only thing that soured the evening a bit was actually the exorbitant surcharge when the bill arrived... the explanation given: it was Sunday i.e. penalty rates etc. All very well, but makes one think twice about having to fork out nearly $100 extra just for having dinner on Sunday!

Melinas is one of Melbourne's best kept secrets. We had a fixed price menu new years eve. What can I say? The food was plentiful and outstanding. The menu had everything, lamb, chicken, calamari, octopus plus the usual fantastic Greek dips and flat breads.Scott and his team did an outstanding job which is commendable as the place was packed! Service was prompt and friendly. Drinks were reasonably priced, beer very cold.Can't wait to go back again.

The food is OK, not bad but nothing special. The venue is nothing remarkable and certainly doesn't give a Greek flavour. It feels like what it is, a room in a high rise. The views are the best point. Wait staff are not focussed on making the customer happy. You ask for something such as more water and they'll slowly get around to it after clearing a few tables, attending to a bill etc. We wouldn't recommend this place..there are a lot better Greek restuarants in the CBD.
