“Service lets this place down”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

First off... Its the Caribbean so we are supposed to be laid back, relaxed and taking our time.... I know that.... And I still don't want to wait an hour for my food! Especially when there are kids who are hungry! I have eaten here quite a few times over the last 3 years and I always enjoy the food, the location and the twinkly lights but the extremely slow service has put me off going again . I now live on the island and whilst I really want to eat here, I can't justify the time it takes to get a bowl of pasta. Sorry guys... You need to step up your game.

“Very nice!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed this cute outdoor eatery right on the harbor. We had good service aside from the somewhat pretentious maitre d' who made snide comments to another couple. The food was great and we quite enjoyed the little kitties as dinner guests.

“Well priced, good honest Italian”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Convenient location in Jolly Harbour, outside terrace near the marina. Good, solid Italian food, good service. Nothing fancy, but it doesn't pretend to be. Good wine list. Would go back

“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

What a great atmosphere at Melinis! After eating a beautiful seafood St Jaques then sitting back at the bar with a chilled glass of red wine,looking over the marina- it doesn't get better!.Melinis also do a varied specials board and take away food too.Try one of their pizzas..in our opinion definitely the best on the island.The owners,Adrian and Mark are great company and make everybody welcome.The bar and restaurant staff are attentive and always make time for a friendly chat.We highly recommend Melinis ,have been going there for years and it has never been less than top notch! Can't wait to go back for more !

“Good Pizza”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We wanted a not so heavy dinner the one night while on vacation. Decided to try Melini's and wasn't disappointed. The service was excellent and the pizza very good.
