Food: Specialising in Greek mezze plates, Melitini is a good choice if you want a variety of dishes. The portions are pretty generous, so it’s best to go with a companion to sample more dishes. They also serve portions of graviera and feta cheese, olives and coldcuts, bread rusks or pita bread, so it’s a nice spot of pre-dinner drinks with snacks.
Service: The staff here are very warm and welcoming and the waitress was kind enough to help us pack anything that we could not finish for takeaway.
Must try: Kavourmas – a pork, lamb and beef confit, which tastes like a tuna, the mince meat cooked with vegetables and graviera cheese, and pickled vegetables.
Ambience: Small and cosy with an indoor and outdoor area, and a second floor outdoor terrace which is open in summer. The breezy, casual bistro-like atmosphere makes you feel like you can drop by anytime without ceremony.
Average price per person: 22 Euro per person with a beverage
