The fish of the day lunch offers especially great value: fish, cold pureed potato with garlic, tomato balls and a small glass of wine for €10! We were right by the sea too, the waves sometimes splashed onto the walkway just outside the tavern but...More

This was probably the best meal I have eaten in Greece to date. We got the bream combo which came with a couple of frittas, a lentil dip and a glass off wine. The presentation is a hoot, you get precisely what they say and...More

We popped into Melina's tavern for lunch last week and were not disappointed. The food was fresh, tasty, plentiful and considering the location well priced. Service was friendly and efficient. The location could not be better, just 2 meters from the sea.

In my view, you must enjoy their hospitality and fresh food if you are at the Akrotiri beach....walking distance from the "diggings" too. Melina is such a lovely and caring person . The family run restaurant is a hidden gem.

We went to Melina's after visiting the archaeological site in Akrotiri. It was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. The owner and staff looked after us well. We had a table overlooking the sea which was relaxing. The food was scrummy. We shared...More
