    I came here when the food was focused on more authentic Greek dishes. As a Greek myself the new menu was too focused on being modern. The flavours of the food were nice but felt it was overpriced. Simple authentic flavours done with the technique of this chef would work really well. The cocktails were really lovely and balanced.

    Service was great but we were disappointed that octopus had been taken off the menu. Garlic anchovy bread was amazing!!! We got two serves and drinks were spot on

    This was our second visit to Melina, taking friends based on our initial and wonderful first visit. I don’t know if there are new owners, but the dips were average tasting, the crispy prawns were 4 average sized, overcooked prawns swimming in a sea of chilli oil, the haloumi cheese was 3 smallish odd shaped pieces, the lamb skewers whilst tasty, were also overcooked. Whilst we like the music that was playing, it was too loud and out of context with a Greek restaurant. Unfortunately we will not be returning.

    Staff/service were great. Food was simple- nothing special. Small servings, over priced and small cocktails and lacking warmth in the room with paper menus and basic tables with no ambience. Bar looks great however, I thought the floor design could be better. The high back booths block half of the view. The charge 10% extra on Saturdays and 15% extra in Sundays/public holidays. It was hard to find as there's no signange. The lift looks like it's a part of an apartment block. Unfortunately, we won't be back. It was too average for a $180 bill.

    The staff were friendly and efficient. Ambiance catered for younger age group. Music very loud. Our table was located near allocated smoking area which was not sealed properly allowing smoke to filter into dining area. Due to this situation our experience was less favourable.

    On the night we went for dinner it was understaffed, they were out of some items we ordered and while the small plates we ordered to share were nice the tables in a booth were small and didn’t fit the items which came out all at once. The menu is pretty average.

    Great view of Melbourne, refurbishment makes it quieter and cosier. Staff are extraordinarily accommodating. We have been here several times and the food is consistently high quality.

    After exploring the internet for a great roof top experience I came across Melina resturant. My partner and I did have a little trouble finding this gem but is was so worth it. Head up the office building lifts to the gorgeous escape. The resturant was romantically lit, booths and tables to choose from and the Mediterain Food and cocktails were great. The service buy the lovely and professional gentleman was fantastic on the night we dined 6/5/2021

About the restaurant

Dine on high at Melina

Named after Greek actress Melina Mercouri who went on to become the first female Minister for Culture in Greece, Melina on the Rooftop offers a bird’s eye view of the CBD, plus great food and service.

The menu is a magical fusion of contemporary Mediterranean flavours and stunning Greek classics. Pop in for breakfast and dive into the stunning 'village eggs' which comes with poached eggs, fresh tomato, fetta and asparagus. Or come come for lunch or dinner and enjoy something more substantial... the picked octopus is just divine and the BBQ lamb skewers melt in your mouth good. They've also got an excellent drinks list for those on the hunt for an after work beverage.

Whatever you're in the mood for, Melina can cater.

Best dish: grilled chorizo tossed with caramelized onion and haloumi cheese.
