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 a variety of traditional Pacific Island delicacies that have been delicately created by Monica and Sven our Head Chef.
Nestled above the spacious basement restaurant is the bar, managed by our Mixologist Glenn, 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 Eugenio, and using his years of experience as an expert sommelier to create a wine selection along side his head Sommelier Alex that perfectly balances with the seasonal dishes on offer.

    A repeat visit. Overall would happily go again. Just a few small observations such as white wine being too chilled, starters coming out very quickly. Food combinations very skilled. The quality of the ingredients is unquestionably good. Staff very personable and genuine. Just short of perfection.

    We have been planning to visit Mere for a long time and we weren't disappointed - friendly and impeccable service, food was beautiful and we had a lovely time. For such a great experience it was really good value for money (we had the weekday lunchtime menu), so will come again and won't wait so long this time.

    Thank you for such a lovely meal! We got the suamalie lunch menu. Most of us had the mushroom fricassé for a starter - we all loved it! We then had the kale palusami, sea bream or pork chop for mains - sensational! It was in the middle of the work day for us, but I would loved to have sat there for much longer and really savour the dishes. Highly recommend the lunch menu - very decent price for exceptional food.

I’m vegetarian,it was a joy to have dishes created for vegetarians,rather than a meat dish with the meat omitted and a mushroom plonked on top!!Thank you Can’t wait to visit again soon.

    The restaurant staff are unpretentious and very welcoming, reflecting the atmosphere of the restaurant as a whole. The food was, unsurprisingly , fantastic. My friend, who is quite particular in these matters, wondered if it would have been possible to present the sauce for her main course, the stone bass, separately. One other small note, which I hope will be helpful: we were very correctly asked about allergies, but the staff member appeared to confuse intolerance with genuine allergy. This was not a problem , just a note that intolerance is not quite such a serious issue, and is more widespread than allergy. Altogether it was a wonderful meal and experience and I hope we will visit again.

    A wonderfully relaxed but still decadent restaurant. Staff were attentive and the food was superb. The set 3 course lunch menu was perfect (with 3 good choices for each course) and reasonably priced. The cocktail to start was fabulous, the food is beautifully presented and delicious. The only small downside is the price of the wines which, whilst lovely, were on the heavy side with only a sparse few under £100.

    My wife and I went to Mere for her birthday and had an amazing time. First and foremost, the food was splendid! In particular, the mushroom starter and the chocolate dessert were divine. Staff were attentive but not over-bearing. The ambience was lovely. We got chatting to the couple next to us and continued drinking in the sophisticated bar upstairs afterwards. All in all a really great evening.

    The moment we walked in we knew it was going to be great. The service at the desk and bar was just spot on friendly not too gushing, just right. The food was amazing. Starter and dessert were not normally the sort of dishes I would go for, king fish and Hokey Pokey, a Samoan chocolate dessert. They were gorgeous though. The main course, duck was knockout good. The flavour in the duck was amazing. If we ever go back I would just have to order it again! Top level cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere.
