Melrose Restaurant


Melrose is a stunning Indonesian/Thai restaurant tucked away on a Bulimba rooftop at the river end of Oxford St.

The unmarked entrance is via a glass door next to Darvella Patisserie (which has the same owner) - enter and take the stairs or lift to the next level where you'll find the main entry to the stunning restaurant, which features an open-sided kitchen and retractible roof to view the sunset sky and stars.
