“A bit overated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

Went here twice firstly for coffee, We were looking to hold our wedding here , really liked the feel of the place, views amazing, so decided to go back the following day for lunch, what a let down, When We picked from the cheaper menu 14 euros and 18 euros respectively,that obviously was a disappointment to staff looking to be tipped, our waitress served our lunch without speaking a single word,charming! food was average, desert a tiny bit of dried cake with lemon curd, left feeling really disappointed.

“Amazing Dining Experience in Lindos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Booked a birthday party on a Tuesday night in October and had a mixed group with young kids and adults (9 total). We were greeted at the front of the restaurant and escorted to a beautiful table set by itself on the patio overlooking the bay. The service from start to finish was some of the best we have had anywhere; they accommodated several special off-the-menu requests from the children and were always present yet never hovering. The food was incredible; there was not a single item, from the amuse-bouche through the surprise birthday dessert they presented to my wife, that the group did not thoroughly enjoy. Special mentions go to the Beef Filet, Sea Bass, Prawns Saganaki, Feta Pastry, Tomato Soup and Linguine. This restaurant is considered pricey in some reviews...but value for money it is one of the best we have been too anywhere and certainly the best in Lindos. We hope to return soon...

“Wonderful Food - Simple and Tasty! Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

We held our wedding reception here and the food was delicious! I would totally recommend the Feta / Honey starter - it is deep fried and tasted absolutely amazing - so much so that we went back for lunch and had the same again the next day!

Breakfast in the garden area was so pretty, I had the poached eggs and they were perfect (I can be fussy about how eggs are cooked), and the staff were friendly and helpful and made all 3 meals we had here relaxed and enjoyable.

Many of the wedding party returned for lunch after the event and all said the food they had was lovely! Thank you so much for being part of our special day :)

“Wonderful restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

We booked a table for 6 people for a wedding celebration dinner. Unfortunately it was an extremely windy evening and the plastic curtains were lowered to protect everyone from the elements. This meant that the wonderful views from the terrace could sadly not be enjoyed that evening. Putting that disappointment aside, the food and service were excellent and 2 of our friends commented that their starter in particular was one of the best they had ever tasted! Although the restaurant is quite expensive, I would definately recommend it for a special occasion.

“Lovely lunch - beautiful atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

We are regular visitors to Lindos, having got married there 9 years ago and we always try to fit in a lunch at Melenos because we love the place!

The service is exemplary, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is relaxed - what more could you ask for on holiday!

We particuarly love the views of Lindos Bay from the Terrace - it is simply a lovely place to enjoy a meal and 'get away from it all'. It is a fairly steep walk up to Melenos but is well worth the visit.

The prices are a bit expensive compared to other restaurants but the place has a certain 'je ne sais quoi' which makes it worth paying a bit extra.

We will certainly be making a return visit in 2014!
