The ambience was lovely, the service was excellent; in this risky and sensitive time, the staff at Meletos were quick to implement additional health and safety regulations with requests that patrons use hand sanitizers provided before entering the venue and suspending all cash transactions, in favor of EFTPOS.

The food was delicious, the gnocchi was the best dish of the night.

We were introduced to MELETOS by friends a while ago. We enjoyed the beautiful wedding of their daughter there in December -- every time we visited this beautiful restaurant in superb surroundings we left saying we have to come again soon and bring so and so. We will be back soon. Thank you

The gnocchi was AMAZING! Could have easily eaten a second serve though as it was small.

Had a really enjoyable time, beautiful location & cafe, friendly staff, good wines. I gave 3 star to the food only because i could not taste the truffle oil/flavour on the gnocchi :( but entree & dessert were fine.

The service was appalling. All the meals were served at different times, 2 of the group were left waiting for food whilst others ate. When the meals came out the rest of the group had finished. The waitress then thought it was appropriate to clear the table whilst the 2 were still eating. Hard to get anyone’s attention to order another round of drinks.
Food when arrived was lovely as always. Due to the poor service I won’t be back.

I am a great dessert eater, but I was tempted to order another bowl of the hand cut chips with delicious aioli instead. Coffee was really nice, so I had two cups, and the Punt Road Pinot Gris we had was superb. Great service.

The food was good but the cost was ridiculous for what you actually get. An entree, pizza and a basic garden salad $50 is crazy.

Second visit, unfortunately the food was not as we remembered it. The tomato pizza sauce lacked flavour. It tasted bland and as a result I left most of it. We were also charged for an item we did not receive, this was eventually rectified. Ambience for a Saturday was not great.

I have been a patron of Melitos for some time now and always love driving onto this amazing property to enjoy the well kept grounds & spacious, airy Bistro. I do understand how a business as such would have extremely high overheads with maintenance, staff and all the rest BUT....there really are some details here that DO need to be addressed for me to stay loyal to the Melitos brand. I am not so quick to recommend these days. Firstly, no longer can my husband and I book during peak days for a Couples Lunch...Melitos WAS our 'special place for Birthdays etc' The food is just not up to the standard that it used to be which then leaves me feeling that there is a problem with value for your $....there are time limits even mid-week lunch for the next bookings to proceed (understand from a business point of view BUT can be annoying as there is then no-where else to go as this is an isolated rural location) Come 12.30 onwards the noise level is VERY high....I find myself feeling more and more uncomfortable as I struggle to lean accross the table to engage in conversation. Food~ Oysters for entree served with a 1/4 of lemon and a little dish of sauce. (Waiting staff should recommend at LEAST 1/2doz oysters)needs some cracked pepper & a piece of soughdough bread. Sauce does not compliment the Oysters.. put a little spoon on the plate to apply sauce to oysters & a couple of peices of your gorgeous S/Dough bread! Prawn Linguine...hmmmm....you know I am instantly impressed if the serving is generous...& the base sauce is a 'knockout'....not the case here. INCREASE the portion size...transform that ordinary tomato base sauce to a thick rich flavoursome sauce and throw in a few more prawns... a touch more chilli and dress it up with fresh BASIL! The lovely dill can be chopped finely and included within the dish. My tastebuds were longing for more texture and intensity of flavour...offer shaved parmesan as well! I must say I left somewhat disappointed.

Seeing the waitress cut the bread while holding it with their hands and then carrying it past our table to put on our platter was not hygienic. Tongs and a towel over the bread would have been far more appropriate.
Pizza was oily.

I came here with my boyfriend and we loved everything about it! We’d had some pretty average dining experiences lately, so it was a breath of fresh air to eat some delicious food and be taken care of by the team at Meletos. I’ve already started recommending it to others!
