MERE is husband and wife team, Monica and David Galetti's first restaurant.

Spread over two floors, this Fitzrovia-based restaurant is the brainchild of Monica Galetti who is featuring as a judge on the BBC's MasterChef The Professionals.

The restaurant itself serves traditional, simple dishes that have been delicately tweaked and modified to Galetti's liking. Nestled above the spacious basement restaurant is the bar, managed by our Mixologist Adam, which serves an array of delectable cocktails.
Monica's husband, David , is in charge of the Front of House at Mere with his Restaurant Manager Nicola, and using his years of experience as an expert sommelier to create a wine selection along side his head Sommelier Alexandre that perfectly balances with the seasonal dishes on offer.

Absolutely brilliant experience. The waiters were so attentive & welcoming. Loved the decor & the food was incredible. Especially liked the Hokey Pokey dessert.
Shame we didn’t see Monica but got to chat with her lovely husband David.
Would love to visit again when we’ve saved up!

We were a couple of 4, my friend and I opted for the vegetarian tasting menu which was disappointing. Didn’t enjoy the turnip dish and the dessert was odd, whereas my husband and my friends husband had the non vegetarian tasting menu and enjoyed it. We did find the experience under welming.

Mere is in a somewhat difficult space with a rather narrow configuration, which means that tables for 2 are lined up against the wall, which somewhat spoils the ambiance. Food was fascinating and original. My only possible criticism was that there were too many white creamy sauces in the tasting menu. Service was faultless and the bill, though expensive, is certainly worth the money.

We had a really fabulous lunch at Mere. Everything from the moment we walked through the door was perfection. The service polite and professional but also friendly. The food was stunning! Beautifully prepared and presented and the quality and tastes excellent. Great wine pairing suggestions as well. We went off the main menu but I want to try the vegetarian tasting menu next time as that looked very interesting and adventurous. I will be going back.

One of the best meals in London- delicate and perfect combinations. A big thanks too for the restaurant’s continued control of COVID risks- every other table kept free- many others could learn from this.

A beautiful meal at a warm and welcoming restaurant. The staff were first class and very helpful. The ambiance was elegant but unpretentious. The food was delicious and the wine pairings were excellent. Best of all, Monica came out to speak to all the diners at the end of the meal. It was a birthday meal for my nan and she spent time talking to her and making us feel like special guests. Nan also received a card and chocolates from the whole team, which rounded off a very special meal. Could not recommend it more and hope to be back one day.

Whole experience could not be faulted . Two Kiwis , each resident 40 years in UK loved having a little taste of Kiwi favourites in amongst an amazing choice of dishes each beautifully prepared and presented.

Happy regulars at the fabulous MERE restaurant. Everything about our evenings here are faultless even to the point of knowing my favourite gin. A great place to eat amazing food, have a chat with the wonderful team who go out of their way to make your night special, and just feel so welcomed. Can’t fault a thing 🤗
