“If it were billed as Austrian home cooking and priced as such, rather than as fine dining--no complaints.”

While the interior is lovely we were greeted not by the aroma of fine food but by a slightly unpleasant odor, perhaps that of a strong cleaning agent. The menu was nicely varied and included several nice entree choices. The "summer menu", read early bird--available only from 5-6:00 PM--was priced at $23.95. It included entree, two sides, wine, dessert and coffee. However, though the food was well prepared all of our dishes, both entrees, all sides and the dessert were items we felt we could have ordered at big city restaurants for 30-40% less. My wife had pork loin Cordon Bleu with red cabbage and beet salad. We had something similar in a polish restaurant--also very good, for about $12. I had pork tenderloin medallions in mushroom sauce, again very good but no better or more unique than I've had at any number of pleasant neighborhood restaurants; my sides, roasted tomato stuffed with spinach and "rösti" potato were nothing really special. This exotically named potato dish was a glorified, slightly more delicate version of hashed brown potatoes. The chocolate sauce on our ice cream desert was somewhat special but the vanilla ice cream itself was not as good as several brands that might be purchased in your local grocery store. The coffee was good but not remarkable while the wines, a Pinot grigio and a Chilean red were both better forgotten and served in undersized wine glasses--not good enough that we wanted to finish either of them. Though sadly disappointed by the food the saving grace was our pleasant server.

As a person originally from Germany it was great to have European quality food here in Vero. I would highly recommend the Wienerschnitzel, The special the evening we were there were lobster stuffed mushrooms with a cream cheese and other cheese topping. Decadently sinfully delicious.

this restaurant is probably the most underrated place in vero, should be in the top five, a bit pricey, is the only downside, the food and service , both first class.
place is a little hard to find, you have to go through a courtyard, hidden off 14th ave , but definitely go, its a gem, food leans toward swiss alpine, and american

It was my husband's birthday and he wanted to try the Melody Inn, a Swiss restaurant in Vero Beach. They have a pre fixe from 5-6 pm, which includes an entre with 2 sides, dessert and a glass of house wine for $23.95. We decided to try it. It was a fabulous meal! My husband had the cordon bleu (with pork loin) and I had the fish. Both were terrific. And the red cabbage was amazing! The dessert that came with the pre fixe was berries over shortbread--to die for. The waitress said next time we should check out the complete dessert menu, which is fantastic. And we will. It was a truly memorable meal. Our waitress, Gwen, was attentive and very nice. We will definitely go back again.
