How great to end lockdown for a 2nd time by eating out at Melusine. It is always lovely and made even lovelier after the enforced isolation of recent months.
I have been here when the restaurant was more of a deli (during the lockdown) and always thought the produce was of the highest quality. I was very excited to try the proper dine in experience and it didn’t disappoint. The service was excellent and the food delicious. I thought the small plates were smaller than I had expected - slightly smaller than a tapas portion but the flavours definitely compensated for it. I also thought there was a great atmosphere which made for an overall fab evening. Thank you very very much
What an experience. I have been a fan of this place as a deli but their restaurant blew me away, better than i anticipated and a lovely atmosphere. Will definitely be going back!
Amazing fish, so fresh and beautiful cooked. Such friendly team always makes us feel so welcome. Oh & so great cocktails & wine.
Try the small dishes and share that way you get to sample lots of their food.
Amazing food, service and atmosphere. Would definitely come back again!
First visit and booked after seeing a review on The Dogvine website. The restaurant is dog friendly.
We had a lovely table by the window , good service, the menu is small but interesting and perfect for fish lovers.
Everything about the Melusine is wonderful - especially the Dover Sole :)
Wonderful being back again + 1st post-lockdown2.0 restaurant!!
Oysters the ever excellent starter to go with the 1/2 price BOTTLE of rosé.......kumimoto variety half the size of Blackwater ones!!
Roast feta in pastry + black truffle shavings was a triumph as was the baklava dessert p Seafood was worth waiting for e.g. scallops!!
Went for mums birthday. Really attentive service. Would recommend.
Excellent service, very attentive. Great food and decent price with good atmosphere
The food was delicious. It was fun to eat outside by the dock. Being very cautious about the virus, we were pleased that the staff were wearing masks too. I hope we can get takeaway food from there during this coming lockdown.
Brilliant food, amazing staff. Super clean and lovely
I make a note of eating out at least once a week in central London and I have NEVER been anywhere this good.... The food was SPECTACULAR, the staff & owners charming & informed, the wine lovely (and on a half price deal no less!)
I know people often say this as a throw away, but you REALLY should try this place, they deserve to survive!
oh, I should also mention they are happy to put on veggie & vegan options as needed... ,y partner was veggie & she raved about it :)
Perfect, great oysters. Lovely atmosphere cannot complain!
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.
Food is amazing! We are definitely going to visit this place again
It's our second time at The Melusine. The ambient is amazing and the staff is friendly and well versed in the food and the wine. Highly recommended!
Excellent seafood restaurant; not overly pretentious or overcomplicated but still interesting and surprising food. The mostly Greek wine list is also a broadening experience!
The best service, food amazing. Sea Bream 10 out 10
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!
The service is always fabulous and the food impeccable.
Hats off to the team.
A local gem.
Consistently good fish, a lovely meal with impeccable service
Excellent food and excellent service....wine list is slightly esoteric
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.
Fabulous food, fabulous service and fabulous atmosphere - what’s not to like?
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!
Lovely, cosy restaurant with great food and excellent staff and service. It'd great to be right by the Marina and the menu offers a very creative selection.
Great local restaurant in St Katharine Docks. Fish is very fresh, staff are knowledgable. Interesting selection of wines. Always delicious!
I has monkfish, and it was the best I’ve ever had! I work nearby and hence I’m won over as a repeat customer!
Fantastic food and great service! Perfect location for a bit of seafood.
Beautiful setting, careful service and excellent quality food & wine. Couldn't ask for more.
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.
Amazing food and service + great location. We had a great evening
This was our second visit and again the food and wine was beyond our expectations. A truly wonderful restaurant with friendly, helpful very attentive staff. Keep up the good work!
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!
Just great all round. Took guests there and they’ll be coming back for sure.
Food was exquisite and flavoursome. Octopus was cooked to perfection and the John Dory was very fresh and tasty.
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.
