Beautiful venue, with lovely surroundings. Service was very good. I ordered the lamb for main which I didn't love, but the scallop entree and sides were delicious. I would definitely come back here and recommend to others.

We feel a little let down - we usually really enjoy Meletos and the winery.

Late sitting. All recent lockdown difficulties taken into account.

Greeting was underwhelming, not exactly welcoming. Food was good and arrived quickly although portions were pretty small - was a two or three course set menu. Looking over at other tables our sides were a bit on the skimpy side but whatever. Service was good, but nothing above and beyond - we didn’t blame them due to the late sitting.

Waited awkwardly at the front desk with a few other tables in order to pay. Same greeter fixed up the bill whilst having a nice chat with their colleague. We didn’t exist. No basic friendliness or chit chat with the customers - we felt like we were an inconvenience. All a bit awkward.

We might be looking for a new favourite around that area next time.

Very impressed with the ambience and the look and feel; the staff went above and beyond to make the experience memorable. The food offering was great and value for money was competitive with what we expected.
Only disappointment was that the Providore shop had closed down permanently.
Definitely will go back.

Stop looking for a place for dinner, your search is over. This place exceeded all expectations for food and service.

Truly the food was something special and the ease woth which the wait staff attended to all questions made you feel relaxed and comfortable.

The ambiance and decor combined with the incredible 2 or 3 course menu (your preference) make this the best I've had in some time.

2 hour wait, the service was terrible. Did not get a sorry for how long it was taking, there was am obvious muck up on someones part and no one told us what was going on or why our meals were so late. I ended up canceling my meal and left. I will never go back. Which is disappointing as this use to be my favorite place. Bring back the platters, pizzas, paté and casual dining.

We sensed a positive atmosphere everyone was there to enjoy what the place has to offer. The outstanding dishes are the scallop entree and the beef on rib the best of all such restaurants that we have been to date. It also catered well for children perhaps at $45 per child would be a bit daunting for many particularly if the child only eat pasta with cheese. It was a beautiful sunny winter day and we were day to celebrate an adult child’s birthday everyone came away happy.

Warm welcome upon our arrival & friendly service from the staff. Timely service when being seated to ordering our drinks/food from the menu. The food was amazing & fresh with a big variety of wines (and other drinks) around the local wineries (Yarra Valley wine region). A very popular & busy restaurant, so booking a table is really essential.

This was a distinguished dining experience. We were 4 people and sampled a variety of dishes from the 3 course menu. Each person was very impressed with their particular choice. The dessert dish Creme Cocoanut was exceptional. Service was well paced and friendly. Highly recommended!

Have been lots over the years but not in the last year or so.We went for my husbands birthday and got seated near the door which was continually opened and freezing inside and out. we moved away from the door which was lovely of staff. It was a set 3 course meal for $80 ,wine not included. Entree was nice ... the 2 scallops I got were beautiful.
The mains however were horrid . My fish was bland and had no seasoning or flavour. My husbands meal (short ribs) was just a ball of inedible fat with very little meat , It also tasted like it was stewed in water with no taste except for a fat taste. It was inedible. we spoke to the waitress who took it back to the chef. Thet said sorry about that and offered a free wine or coffee! so he had no meal to speak of, no offer of a replacement or money off. We then had gelato which was fine but not beautiful. Not sure what's gone wrong with Meletos but its so sad ... used to love the food , it was expensive but amazing. now its expensive and not very good food . Wont be back .

We expected our two course meal to be of great quality for the price they charge. For $65 per person, two dry scallops was underwhelming. The slow cooked beef short rib was delicious & melt in your mouth but the lamb blackstrap was really tough (probably why they give you a steak knife). The chocolate Grenache was delicious but on the tiny side. The staff were great.
Poor value for money.

Lovely surroundings from the architecture to the terrific views of the valley.
A contemporary space for indoor dining with options for outdoor seating.
Good service and a good menu. Very good options for gluten free.
Noise level was better than most modern restaurant spaces but more can and should be done.
