But better late than never!

These guys have got a great set up, good food, right mood, great wine and lots of fun.

We are here at least three times during our two week stay at Jolly Beach and thoroughly recommend for a lovely relaxing evening.

I must admit after enjoying our first night there we polished off a few more bottles of wine so we just had to return to make sure that our desserts were just as good the second time around, the definitely were!

If ever we are fortunate enough to return to the beautiful Antigua I hope that it's still going strong !

Thanks xx

“Yachtman's choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

When in the Marina in Jolly Harbour I came to the restaurant most mornings for coffee and to use the excellent WiFi.
Getting to be a bit of a regular the strength of the coffee I liked was known by the staff and was made just right for me, a very nice bit of service.
Had dinner there several nights and was always lovely.
I felt well treated and appreciated and recommend Melini's highly.

“The Best in Antigua”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

I found Melini's three weeks ago and went to dine 12 times since. The food is deliciously tasty. Starters are amazing. Mains are the best. Very good service. Patient staff that recognize you after the first visit. Pat's service is outstanding. Blue bottle wine is a little expensive. We would have drank much more if it was EC$20 cheaper.

“Good Italian, nice location, friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

We went to Melini's several times in our 2 week break. We found the food consistently excellent (as apparently did the little black cat who enjoys sitting and staring at you with big eyes). We thought the prices were reasonable given location and portion sizes. Also found the menu choice to be much more varied and interesting than Mayday next door.
We definitely recommend the breaded aubergine in tomato sauce starter. Yummy.

“Italian in Jolly Harbour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

I thought the food was great, but a bit on the pricey side. The outdoor setting and ambience is excellent, and it is located in a convenient area within Jolly Harbour.
