Excellent sea food and great service. A very limited menu, which I prefer! Nice atmosphere and you can see you food being prepared. Small but didn't feel crowded.

Melusine is most unusual. The two partners are passionate about food, Theodore, the chef/partner loves to cook with wonderful ingredients, fresh as fresh can be and with amazing creative skill. The team are happy and it shows. This is a real gem.

Wonderful cooking, The small plates could be easily shared and were far from run of the mill. the taramasalata was outstanding as were the Torbay prawns (cooked and eaten whole). Good wine list -mainly Greek. Good service and a nice atmosphere. good to watch the chefs at work.

We went for a late lunch so it was quiet, the staff were all lovely very friendly and attentive, they accommodated my dog all greeting him and gave him a bowl of water. We had a number of small plates so that we could try a variety of dishes, every dish was amazing - presentation, attention to detail and flavours were all perfect. The seafood and fish was all perfectly cooked the chefs are clearly very skilled. Best scallops ive ever tasted had to order a second portion! Wine half price on a Wednesday - I'll definitely be back!

Food was lovely, service was terrific. My wife and I really felt welcome with our five year old daughter for an early dinner. They looked after us so well. Would definitely go back. A gem of a restaurant away from the crowds in a lovely pre/post walk setting.

We are big fans. Really good seafood dishes and a creative “Mediterranean” wine list. Wonderful, thoughtful service. Eating outside is a joy, but we do wish their landlord would be more flexible and permit heaters and big umbrellas (like The Ivy Tower Bridge?) for cooler/drizzly days.
