Hi smithyronny, Thank you for your lovely review. We might be biased but we think our 2 course is excellent value for money!! We hope to see you soon SM Team
We used to live in Marchmont & Sweet Melinda's was our go- to restaurant for a special meal. In those days it was a buzzing, inviting restaurant with good food & very friendly service. The food is still good, if a bit pricey, with mains...More
