It is very noisy even at moderate numbers of diners. Otherwise very enjoyable. Our meal was absolutely delicious and excellent quality. I love the set price menu because I like the limited choices - makes it easy!

We had the most beautiful anniversary dinner at Meletos the other night. Both our meals were delicious and the presentation was lovely. The service and ambience were exemplary. Looking forward to going back with some girlfriends for lunch in a few weeks.

We loved our visit to Meletos and the food was very good. Our only complaint was that three meals came out and we had to wait for our friend to receive hers before we could start. Also it took a while for the waiter to take our drink order. Even so we will definitely be back.

Great dinner, nothing blew me away but definitely enjoyed the whole experience. Waitstaff we had was probably new, just a few minor things about the service but nothing to make it unpleasant.

As a couple on a romantic weekend, I don't think Meletos was a good choice. I take responsibility for that. The place presents beautifully. The Autumn leaves hanging on the overhead trellis was a delight to the eyes and the view through the windows of vines and garden is soothing. The architecture and fit out is great but the acoustics with the concrete floor is poor. When we entered the building it was super noisy, very busy with big groups finishing lunch. We could barely hear ourselves talk once seated at our table against a window. If it had been warmer we would have headed outside to get away from the noise. But it was too cold so we opted to stay warm and put up with the noise. Service and wine was lovely. Being given an option of only 2 ways to eat from a 2 or 3 course set menu was acceptable but what was presented tasted pre-cooked, a tad dry and overall disappointing. It left us feeling like we were eating mass produced food rather than something that a chef had lovingly prepared... something that I think we had become accustomed to pre COVID.

We booked online and were forced to book a banquet (not our preference as we have dietary issues) for our party of 8, however that menu was more limited due to dietary restrictions although we could work with it. On arrival the menu had been changed from the one advertised, so it was a lot of negotiation to find the chef could only give one alternative for entree, two choices of main but were recommended to choose only one- so not a banquet. Apparently we should have received a call a week ago about our booking to explain and explore options. In saying all this, the host was very helpful and the food we did have was delicious- tasty mushroom tart (although the pastry case was sweet) and the best slow cooked lamb shoulder I’ve had, tangy side salad and paprika fries. The cheese platter was very good but the petit fours were all rich dark chocolate - not a favourite of one of our group but were demolished by the rest.

I took my partner here for his birthday and he loved it.
The staff are very friendly and attentive.
The food was delicious! The stand out dish for the night were the scallops for entree.
We couldn't fault any of our dishes and would definitely be coming back.
