We had a very enjoyable night at Melt, with a wonderful view and the food and drinks were amazing. The only negative was the service we received. The woman who served us seemed "put out" by serving us and didn't engage with us at all.
Otherwise it was fantastic and we'll be back when it's possible to do so.

Beautiful views, friendly service, and good to see local wines on the wine list. Possibly the best hummus I’ve ever had!

We had a most enjoyable night. The meal was delish we had the $45.00 tasting selection.
All was great but we absolutely loved the beans. Good selection of wines. Staff were very good, as we all know they can really make a night. Keep up the good work and make Henley Square alive. thanks

We thoroughly enjoyed our first time at dining at Melt at Henley. We received a friendly welcome on arrival and throughout our meal. Staff were very informative about the menu and the recommended drinks were spot on!
Thanks for having us.

A superb location with fantastic view across the ocean with the sunset right in view. The food is magnificent, salads and entree's are so tasty too. Service was the best and the beer selection for craft beer lovers is superb as well. Parking was fine too. All up one of the best meals ever and I reckon the best Pepperoni Pizza ever as well.

The service was a bit disappointing. Our kids meal was the last meal to come out when we were almost finished (I think it had been forgotten because we had to chase it up).

Wine list has been reduced significantly, hard to find any Shiraz(No) in the 45-50 - 55 range , very limiting, we like the restaurant- we had beans , they were stunning and we enjoyed the seafood pizza.

We had a great time at Melt but just had some confusion with our orders which meant some people in our party ate quite late.

We had a long girls lunch that went from 1.30pm to 6pm, the staff were great with letting us take our time ordering but quick to get anything we asked for. The food and wine were lovely, as were the cocktails. The view out to Henley Beach and beyond is breathtaking.

I would recommend for the view and interior, unfortunately not for the tapas. After having been to melt king william and cbd, the tapas at Henley was subpar sorry to say. Breads/pitas were dry. Two pieces of haloumi for three people, whereas the other tapas had three pieces. Big chunks of garlic in the broccoli. Hoummous didn’t seem to be blended properly. Pizzas were good however.

Great food, service was great until it got busy and we had our food. I would have ordered more wine and needed more water but waiter never came back until we’d finished eating and wanted the bill.

There are 2 places of “Melt” - one in the Adelaide CBD, another one in Henley Beach. This review is about restaurant located at Henley Beach.
Service was pretty slow though i considered it was quite full restaurant. However we ordered 2 glasses of different wines, each was brought quite at different times.
A different waiter was much more enthusiastic than our dedicated one.
Pork cutlet was at times paper-thin and quite burnt, otherwise the crumbs and herbs on the pork were quite tasty.
My chicken liver parfait was tasting after too much liquor, however grilled haloumi was really great - nice & juicy!
Due the place was quite full the restaurant was quite noisy which was ok at times, but sometimes it was hard to hear.
Overall i have mixed feelings about this place as i really enjoy this place in the city but Henley Beach did not raise to the same standard.

Fantastic service and our waiter had a good memory.food was exceptional especially the king fish.
A little warm inside the restaurant as we were facing the setting sun but the weather had been particularly warm that day.
Definitely will return and pass on the good word.

Well done Simon on a great team.

Not very good Vegan options, the vegan pizza and offered modifications for other pizzas were not very tasty and not worth how much we spent.
We had 2 drinks and a pizza each and paid $60 per head which I think is not great considering all we ate was dough with some vegetables on top.
It would be great if Melt offered vegan cheese and a few more specific vegan options.
I'm not vegan but a friend is, and a lot of other places these days have very tasty options.

Overly pushy hostess that didn’t allow us to ponder on the menu and beverage list. Had requested for a table with view of the sea, but got pushed way towards the parking lot and road. Absolutely loved the food and pizzas were great. I would advise staff need more understanding of allowing customers to settle down and not push them to finish quickly.

The food and views at Melt were amazing, however the service was not.

We head a 5.45pm booking which online said we had to be out by 8.00pm. When we arrived the lady that seated us said we had to be out by 7.30. Then the waitress came over (around 6.15) and said we had to be out by 7pm. The whole night was rushed from then on and our evening was ruined with rushed orders and a bill put on our table before we had finished.
