    We arrived and had to wait 30 min for our table as it wasn’t ready (guests weren’t told to leave). For $70 per person the food was very average. They could have put some more expensive options in the mix e,g fresh seafood (not just a tiny bowl of fried calamari). Didn’t feel we got any bang for our buck. The dessert was terrible. They didn’t have enough staff. The staff service was lovely though. It took long periods between food, we were falling asleep at the table and weren’t able to enjoy the night. We arrived at 8:30pm and left at 11:30...

    Cons; Had to wait for about 10 mins for service at the table even though waitresses were floating around, felt ignored. The heater was one causing the atmosphere to be too warm and uncomfortable. Pros; maître de tried to overcome lack of service with a free glass of bubbly, food was still the same quality. Please do something about the service.

    Good food and atmosphere was great. Beautiful breeze from the semi open rooftop and lovely Melbourne CBD views. Staff very friendly. Great little hidden Greek Australian restaurant. Highly recommend.

    The place was average and so was the food. The waitress was lovely. Very chatty and helpful! Just disappointed with the food and premises. The website photos are also misleading.

    The food was, amazing, staff really friendly and the setting was perfect. My only issue was the fact that it's way too overpriced for what the food is.

    Was really looking forward to comming here with interstate visitors. Was embarassed and disappointed. We had the banquet for 4 people. It was barely enough for 2 people. There is a 15% surcharge on sundays. Our bill was $350. We could have gone across the road to Stalactites and eaten 3 times and been satisfied. Im surprised this place is even still operating.

    Second visit was somewhat disappointing, perhaps a quieter crowd due to the public holiday so atmosphere wasn’t the same and quality of food wasn’t the same as last time as well.

    When the door is open to the outside, an annoying draft sweeps through the restaurant. They need to find a solution for this. Otherwise, very enjoyable meal.

    This rooftop Greek restaurant was magical! Between the fairy lights, the view of the city, the amazing food (Risoni and prawns are to die for) and the outstanding service from the friendly and happy wait staff! Very engaging and absolutely will go back asap!!!

    Everything was very nice, especially the music. We ordered 4 different ‘mezzes’/salads to share and all were delicious. Just try to avoid going on a 40+ degrees day as it is located on the rooftop and can get very hot.

    Scott the floor manager was extremely welcoming, generous and accommodating. The food was seriously tasty and well proportioned. The vibe was fantastic with a great view and Greek style music (maybe a bit loud..) overall a very memorable experience.

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.
