We used this restaurant whilst staying at the Corinthia Palace - in our 5 day stay, we were there 4 times! The food was well priced, tasty and the place is so relaxed. Even out of season, it was busy but not overly busy and the gardens are lovely to sit and have a glass of wine. Would definitely return... More

Just popped in for a drink and bite to eat on this beautiful day. Staff were lacklustre, bordered on rude by ignoring us. It's such a shame as it's a beutiful location and could be so much better with a little effort!

Went over the road from the Corinthia Palace Hotel looking for some food that was more reasonably priced and found it here at the Melisa Gardens. Good selection of dishes topped off with a couple of daily specials. Tonight main special was a 1.2kg T bone rib steak that sounded great but unfortunately just a bit too big for our... More

The Melita was my father's favourite spot for an early evening beer in 1970's. I decided to revisit and naturally there are changes. There are now large covered areas for dining and I enjoyed a simple but tasty tuna salad. Staff are very attentive.

After about a year we visted Melita Gardens again. We must say we're pleasantly surprised. Mainly because of the improvement in the staff. They were much more allert and customer friendly. The food was good as expected. So we will come back more often now!!

I thought the bruschetta was delicious and my pasta dish had a lot better of flavour but too much cream and the portion was too big. It's not a fancy restaurant therefore don't dress up like I was! I was also cold and had to keep my coat on.
