Tucked away behind a good little Thai restaurant we rolled along one Friday evening and were pleasantly surprised. The small dimly (atmospherically??) lit restaurant had a great ambience, with good rustic food being served along with some very drinkable wines. The steak I had was very well cooked, being rare and well rested. Wine was a reasonable price and the starters were not over filling. Overall a good night was had and judging by the noise of the tables around us we weren't the only ones.

We went to Gold Mela last night to celebrate Grandads 87th birthday. This restaurant has a lovely ambience, the staff friendly and efficient and the food really good. There is a variety of dishes including pasta, pizzas, steak and seafood. We had a lovely evening and the other guests very impressed. On previous occassions when we have dined here we have never been disappointed. Thanks Gold Mela

Great food at reasonable price, lovely rustic little restaurant, super service!! Each time I book, there is always availability and they cater from couples dining to groups of friends or family. We have even had a small work do there. Love the pasta dishes and the salmon and steak dishes are great as well.

My husband and I dine regularly at Gold Mela. It is casual dining and the food is always good. . Taking ones own bottle of wine means it's a very reasonably priced dinner out. The pizza is authentic and full of flavour. The staff are always friendly and nothing is too much bother. The ambience is great. Book for Friday nights.
