Went to Melissa Restaurant for meal on a Friday evening for first time having booked. Waitresses very attentive to the clientele -whether new or seemingly regular. Noticeably hardworking but still taking time to engage with the customers. Good sized portions of both starters and main course, such that little room for dessert. Lamb nicely seasoned, well-cooked and very tender. Generous amount of salad. Reasonably priced. Only drawback on a Friday evening at 19.00 hours was the excessive noise from children (who were obviously enjoying themselves at venue and were well-catered for by the staff). Practical solution: for a more quiescent meal, to attend after 20.15 hrs when the ambient sound subsides.

VERY NICE LOCAL RESTAURANT. IT HAS RECENTLY BEEN EXTENDED AND LOOKS GOOD. STAFF ARE VERY ATTENTIVE AND HELPFUL WHEN ASKED ABOUT SOME DISHES ON THE MENU. THE OWNER CAME OVER TO THE TABLE AS I WAS BY MYSELF AND WAITING FOR MY SON, WE CHATTED AND HE OFFERED ME A DRINK. THE FOOD AND WINE WAS VERY GOOD AND IN ALL A VERY PLEASANT EXPERIENCE WHICH WE WILL REPEAT AGAIN.

The food was delicious and the service was very good. The owner is charming and greets you like you are an old friend. Only one small complaint, and it is very trivial, one waitress is on the miserable side and didn't smile once. Also they do not have semi-skimmed or skimmed milk which means no lattes ordered after the meal. I would recommend.

The food was amazing! Way too much - we couldn't finish, but the salads were fresh and delicious and the dips were tasty. The freshly warmed bread was a treat!

This is a lovely local restaurant with friendly staff and a personal welcome. The food is large portions at very reasonable prices. The only downside is sometimes the service can be a bit slow.

Slow service so by the time the mains arrived we didn't have much appetite. Very noisy as well, which made conversation hard to hear. Staters were lovely. Disappointed with the mains. Meat was over cooked and dry.
