Cooks at this restaurant do their best to provide guests with good branzino, prawns and fish & chips. If hungry, come here for perfectly cooked Pavlova, Brezeln and chocolate mousse. Chef Melba's Bistro provides the delicious chardonnay selection. A lot of visitors order great coffee.

This place is perfect to сelebrate your anniversary. The staff is cute that's what makes this spot so nice. Fabulous service is something that people highlight in their reviews. Prices here are reported to be attractive. You will certainly like the calm atmosphere and divine decor. But most Zomato users didn't give this restaurant a high score.

Honestly this place is one of my favorite restaurants.  The atmosphere and food are amazing.  Very classy place but not snobby.
Came here for a prix fixe company dinner. It was our first time here.  Staff were good and the flavors of the food were good. I didn't expect too much from the ahi poke as it's not part of the restaurant's "theme" of flavors but it was okay.  The rest was pretty awesome.  The raw scallops impressed everyone from the onset.  I wish the mixed mushrooms were grilled before being put in the flavorful bath but that bath went so well with the grilled bread.  We had so many appetizers and starters it really set us up for a good gastronomic experience. They were refreshing appetizers and not too heavy but full of different flavors. The Sea Bass was expertly done and perfectly seared and then drizzled with more flavor. I had the lamb flank and that was pretty good. About 3/4 of the way through I started realizing it was a bit too salty but the Chorizo sauce complimented it so well. I'm used to more heavy traditional deserts and the chocolate bag was okay for me.  The sauces layed out on the plate were pretty good.  The fruits were good but I'm just not used to the cream that was in it. Overall we left very satisfied.  All the 3 "T"s were met to a "T". Taste, Texture, and Temperature were done with aplomb.  They were able to pump out well presented dish after dish to a large group of discernible clientele.
SEAFOOD NIRVANA ! A group of us enjoyed a splendid dinner at this classy restaurant last Wednesday. It was great to meet up with Chef Melba soon after we walked in around 6pm. The head server Shanna showed us to a prime table in the corner to the side of the entrance. Most of us opted for glasses of water but I chose a very nice local IPA on Shanna's recommendation. Some lovely warm grilled bread came out soon after. We kicked things off with a serve of Char Grilled Spicy Octopus which tasted fresh & tantalizing as can be. As our server Shanna reminded us all their seafood is always fresh never frozen. A delicious Persian Salad disappeared in a few seconds. For entrees my wife ordered Tortellini & Lobster Medallions, my sister-in-law selected the Pure Reserve New Zealand Prime Filet Mignon. My brother-in-law and I liked the appeal of the Seafood Asopado. Our meals arrived in suitable time and were magnificently plated. My wife loved her lobster dish, my sister-in-law thought her filet mignon tasted perfect medium rare and I agreed after sampling a piece. My brother-in-law and I simply devoured our seafood combo dishes. I am certain one of my shrimp was over 6 inches long. I had another local beer to keep things flowing. A few minutes after finishing our meals most of us shared an incredible looking dessert called Chef Melba's Signature Dark Chocolate Bag. Think of a dark chocolate box filled with passionfruit mousse, kiwi fruit, mixed berries & raspberry drizzle. My God did it taste heavenly ! So we all had a perfect evening enjoying some of the finest food you'll find anywhere on the planet. We thanked our talented server Shanna and had a lovely chat with Chef Melba before we left. If you want the best fine food experience and exceptional service put Chef Melba's Bistro on your list !
