Lovely restaurant, very welcoming staff. We had been recommended to go here by family and it definitely didn't disappoint. Surf and turf was the best that we had ever had. All came in a timely fashion and good sized portions.
We ate here in a hurry on Saturday night after being let down in another restaurant just over the road! We explained we were on a tight schedule because we were attending an event at the Brighton Centre and only had a 45 minutes to...spare before it started.
The service was speedy with the food arriving very quickly and the food was tasty and very reasonably priced. The staff were attentive and very friendly without being over the top.
Definitely recommend getting your fish and chips from the Melrose.More
The intention of the evening is to eat fish.
Opposite the i360, there were two seafood restaurants.
One was empty and the other was full.
And we chose the empty one (Melrose).
They welcomed us warmly as if we were stars. During the order, we...chose a starter of squid and scampi, and a main of fried seafood platter, and a fried fillet of plaisse.
They were abundant dishes, in fact we ate like Vikings!
The place reminded me of an old tavern, with fairly steady clienteles.
We weren't full enough and ordered dessert (apple pie, baklava). They were good.
Super recommended, for those who love fish, and those who want to eat like a pig.More
I have been to this restaurant over dozen of times.
It use to be my favourite.
However, it is under new ownership. Probably people next door owns it now.
Service is very very poor. It took more then an hour to be served. Order was...lost, so we have to give order again.
Wrong order was served. When asked about it, we were told that now we need to pay extra to get original order.
They did not asked for which fish we wanted either.
Waiter/ cashier was a bit odd. Tried to make odd jokes. I had to go to the till to pay as no one was bringing us the bill. The waiter asked if I really want to pay, and if I have enough money in the bank to with my card.
Food was not better then small takeaway type restaurants.
They were refusing to accept more customers at 8pm, while restaurant was only half filled.
I noticed that chef was running in between restaurant and next door cafe.
I use to recommend this restaurant to everyone.
Now I will recommend not to go to this restaurant.More
Me and my partner ordered a wonderful large seafood platter. The food came quickly and was very fresh. Lively and ambient environment with the staff taking great care of us and being very attentive, truly going the extra mile. We had a lovely meal at...this restaurant.More
I am ashamed that I have never visited Melrose and I am the wrong side of 60. The reason being that the Fish is delicious and reminds me of the no frills, no spills Restaurants I remember as a boy. I had whole Calamari to...start and salmon to follow. This place feels and looks as authentic, unpretentious and honest as the day is long. How refreshing. Lovely view of the seafront and great service. Big TICK.More
