Amazing food! I had the squash soup and the red snapper stuffed with caramelized onions and spinach! It was superb! Will definitely be telling all my family and friends about here! Our waiter Mario was so friendly and very efficient. The prices are also great for what you get! Will definitely be back to try another dish soon :)

We were working late with our local rep and stopped in without reservations. The place was empty about 9 pm on a week night and we wondered if we had made a mistake. How wrong we were - the ambiance is refined, the service friendly and efficient and the food to international expectations. It was a little pricey but of... More

Presentation of the food was good. (I was served my fish meal in a plate in the shape of a fish - cute touch).... More

The food at melange is impeccable, the service is pristine and the ambiance is beautifully detailed. You must try the exquisite cuisine of melange. I had the fish of the day pan seared and it left my mouth watering and my head in the clouds. Mario the service is extremely professional, he ensures that you are very well taken care... More

Oh boy! I had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant as part of a Trinidad and Tobago familiarisation trip for international bird watching tour operators organised by my company. We enjoyed seven courses that showcased Trini cuisine to the visitors including stewed oxtail and coo coo, rice and stewed fish, shrimp and potato roti and desserts. Each course was... More

What a waste of our 1 free night in Trinidad coming here. Only 3 tables were occupied but took hours for service. Waiter was a joke, if I say "manuel" that wouldnt go close! Very pretentious, slow. Food wasnt cooked properly (red chicken!) and everything else was bland. Also, its damn expensive considering we came out wanting more!
