I am a little bit disappointed that one of the bar staff was quite rude to us when we decided to sit at the bar and continue catching up after our reservation had ended. We were seated and barked at by the bar staff that we were in the way. We were then asked if we wanted desserts and more drinks by a seperate person who brought us a menu and when we went to order we didn’t get everything we ordered and it was made out to be a huge effort that we were ordering desserts and more drinks.

Apart from that the food was incredible and the space and our service staff while we were seated at our table were INCREDIBLE! I’m just disappointed that this one person ruined such a good night.

Probably won’t be coming back unless invited by someone else.

Was a lover of Melt restaurant but now It seems to be Over priced for the overall meal and cocktails were super expensive for what they were… barely got any margarita in a glass stacked with ice and not served in a martini glass or margarita glass but in a stemless wine glass, not worth $20! When it was served to us we were all confused about what it actually was and if they got the order wrong, not to mention they took until we finished entree to bring them out. Wasn’t a super busy night, wasn’t a fully booked restaurant. They use to serve it in a martini glass and with no ice the proper way. I feel like the pizzas use to be a lot better than what they are now, the base was like pita bread :( The entrees were really lovely though, risotto balls were great! Not sure if I will go back again.

Food was delicious, however we waited over half an hour before someone even came and took our order, even after trying to flag down a staff member to do so (which was quite rudely ignored) and then just over another half an hour before our entree arrived.

Great food as always, but the pizzas took a long time to arrive. The kids were starving after an hour wait. If we had have known we would have ordered bread or chips while we waited.

We sat outside on a beautiful winters day overlooking the sea and had two mains and a delicious desert pizza. Service was friendly and food was delicious. Knee rugs were a nice touch.

I love going to Melt usually! We ordered our drinks and it took at least 5 mins for them to arrive, the restaurant wasn’t particularly busy. They didn’t offer the water so we had to help ourselves. Long wait after we ordered our drinks before the staff came back and asked us if we were ready to order... possibly 10 mins.
Food was great : ). After the staff member cleared our plates, another staff member asked if we were ready to order our meal.
Don’t usually write these reviews, however was really disappointed : (

Food and service was great. Outdoor seating was perfect for the day we were there - just a bit of traffic noise but it was outside so we certainly can't complain about that! Wine list prices were on the high side but food is certainly value for money.

Disappointing service after being seated was left waiting 20 minutes for any waiter/waitress - after 20 mins of waiting for someone to serve us we eventually had to flag a waitress down to take our order..
Food was great though and the tapas and pizza for 49pp was of great quality.

We had a table of 8 for my daughters 16th Birthday. Staff were outstanding. Wonderful food and a fun night. They really made a celebratory effort with the Birthday Girl too. We were at at a very odd shaped table that made it a bit difficult to mix etc but that they only downside. We weren't rushed and overall it was beyond out post Covid dining expectations! Thank you

We booked a table for a special occasion and requested a table outside with a view. We were not contacted and on arrival found we were seated inside at the back of the restaurant with no view which was very disappointing.
The pizzas were very tasty however I would not recommend ordering the tapas as they are very overpriced for the small serving size. Drinks were also very overpriced.
Would have appreciated a call or email prior to the booking time to let us know our table choice was not available and also to notify us of the 15% surcharge (it was the Sunday before Anzac Day which is not an actual public holiday so there should not really have been a surcharge!)
Good atmosphere and not too loud so you could talk easily, but the other factors have discouraged us from returning again.
