Food was great, we both loved our meals. There was a slight confusion where the dish I original ordered was only listed in the allergy menu that I was looking at, but I was able to select an alternative without much trouble.

Serving staff were friendly and polite, the space is cosy and inviting. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent seafood restaurant; not overly pretentious or overcomplicated but still interesting and surprising food. The mostly Greek wine list is also a broadening experience!

I high-diving experience for a very reasonable price. Tried the sea bream for two, expecting a regular fish but the chef elevated it to a truly extraordinary dish. Had an amazing time with my girlfriend. Thank you!

Small plates were indeed very small. This was OK as we were sharing. The service was fine, but a little disappointed that the waitress seemed to have a "I told you so attitude".
The prices were a bit steep. The oysters that were left were indeed like left over food and very small. The Fish with the Lamb chops was an odd combination. The taramasalata was delicious. Does hurt a bit to see that you sell it for £2.20 take out though! Could have done with more desserts and sides selection.

Our first return visit to this wonderful restaurant during these crazy times of 2020 but the food, service and ambience were every bit as special as on our previous visits. Really exceptional place - they certainly deserve the loyalty they have generated since opening in late 2019. Thanks to all the team!

A good fish restaurant. Some interesting wines. My only real criticism concerns the dressing/boning of the sole. It was inexpertly done and messily presented. More practise needed.

We booked this restaurant in the last minute on Saturday night, when all other restaurants were fully booked and we didn’t know what to expect because of this.

This turned out to be one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in London, if not the best. Everything was on point which made the experience a night to remember. Our waitress gave us the best service together with the restaurant manager. We had several dishes and all of them equally good, which I find to be very rare. We selected a white wine from Greece that was a good as the food. The ambiance in the restaurant was the cherry on the cake for this restaurant.

Neither me or my boyfriend lives in this area of London but we will for sure be coming back.

Thank you for a great evening!

If you like seafood, fish, menu diversity, trying new flavors and dishes every time you eat at the Melusine, tasting some wine that you have never heard of before... then this is the place to go! The restaurant decor is welcoming, the food is delicious and innovative, the service is efficient and friendly and the setting of the restaurant at the heard of St Katherine's dock is amazing! I would definitely recommend this restaurant. I have been there several times already and I have never been disappointed.

A favourite restaurant but for the first time a bit concerned about value for money. The large plate main courses , fish for 2 to share, did not justify the price tag.

This is my favourite local restaurant - and the best one in the area in my opinion. They were due to open just before lockdown and instead opened as a deli and supplied the freshest fish and produce to local residents - a true hero local business. I couldn't wait to return as a diner instead of a shopper and everything we had--and we ate a lot-- was exceptional. Fresh, innovative without being pretentious. Flavour combinations were wonderful, seasonal and well balanced. The wine - a Portuguese white was delicious. We cannot wait to return. Gina.

Good location but staff have no idea about social distancing. Food was ok but not nearly worth the prices. The menu is quite limited. Whilst the service was efficient no masks or distancing and no sanitiser was available. All in all an ok place to eat but there is a lot of choice at the dock offering more for better prices
