I tend to have dinner at Melba every year or two. Great food, professional service, acceptable (high) prices. The reason I dod not give a 5 star rating this time was the main course. Ordered a steak M, bit it was overcooked, a strong MW.

As a starter Melba salad is delicious! Main course was also very tasty, nice plate. Environment is pleasent, boat look like. We had two waiters, one was very friendly and supportive. But another one was acting like we were enemies. Nice place for business lunch!
