Looking for a wonderful Haitian/Cajun restaurant with amazing food ?., One just opened a few weeks ago and a wonderful surprise awaits you . Meli Melo located at 153 Dubois avenue in Valley stream is such a place, Relaxing ambiance , great and timely service. The space is beautifully done and the music nice and “Melo” . Transport yourself to New Orleans and Haiti ,with live music . This is a wonderful place to spend a romantic evening or great times with your friends. Plenty of parking in the rear.
The Poisson gros sel is fabulous , a light and finer version of the dish, not too spicy ,just spicy enough.You can always request a side of Pikliz to add some heat if you require.It is also their best seller.
The cocktails are wonderful and if you like mangos , do try the Marigo. If I didn’t have to drive, I think I would have drowned myself in this delectable concoction.
A beautiful , relaxing place to have dinner and drinks. They have a very large bar area where you can sip those marvelous cocktails and maybe a shot of rhum Barbancourt and listen to some great jazz .
Happy hour drink specials weekdays $5 & $6 . they open at 4 pm .This restaurant is only weeks old, so they are still working out the kinks , give it a chance you wont be disappointed.
My overall experience was super positive and I highly recommend that you try Meli Melo . I have been back several times and plan on going back often.
The owners Patrick and Judy and their partner go out of their way to make everyone feel welcomed and I sure wish them the best of luck.
