Very comprehensive and balanced menu. Nice selection of lam, but also crispy babysquids, grilled octopus (bit small portion though) and regularly changed seasonal offeres.
Great family atmosphere, but weekends might be tiring for romatic dinners. Friednly, not overhelming service. Easy, simple decor and enough space/air to feel cofortable even when full. It's more about atmosphere, but Chef defends himself well enough for price paid.

The owners of Meltemi have been operating several restaurants in Warsaw for a long time. Their recipe is the following: cheap, kichy interior, fast food presented as proper food and good marketing (friendly relationships with local journalists?).

Meltemi is no exception. I find the food tasteless and bland. It reminds me of the stuff you would get at food courts of mass market shopping malls. However, Meltemi prices are similar to quality restaurants. Service is ok.

You won't get poisoned in Meltemi but there are dozens of decent restaurants in Warsaw so why to spend you priceless time here? I find it weird that in 2012 this restaurant is in business. I understand that 15 years ago with this strategy you could operate in Warsaw restaurant market but the world has moved on!

Nice place, though quite crowded on weekends, lots of kids running and screaming. Good for lunch with family (especially if you yourself have kids who like to run and scream :) There is a kids corner, kids menu. The food was good, but not exceptional. Spinach soup very good, chicken stuffed with haloumi mere. Desserts ok. Slow service.

We went there with the friends - 4 people + 4 kids (useful play corner for kids). No special occassion - just casual dinner. We have tried to order different starters and meals (prices for main course ranges 40-60 PLN). The hits were: spinach and feta cheese soup - creamy and soft, excellent. So far I thought feta cannot taste well when warmed/cooked - now changed my mind. If you are not hungry take plate of hot starters for two - a variety of small bites - greek cuisine par excellance - octopussies, feta in fried in almonds, tzatziki, dolmades etc. My wife enjoyed very much moussaka served in a bowl where it was baked. Somehow the min courses - i had a chicken with dried tomatos and rise, and my friend has a pork was not that convicing as starters. Still excellent but... Kids have enjoyed kids menu - fish and chips or Greek pizzas. (I would say let the Italian prepare pizza ;-) It was Sunday and there were quite a few celebrations dinners going on - anniversary, birthdays. It was quite busy, but service still excellent - competent and quick. Nice, stylish interior, but do not look out of window, typical block of flats surroundings. Given that, I believe could be slightly cheaper.
