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, which serves light snacks and an array of delectable cocktails.
Monica's husband, David Galetti, is in charge of the Front of House at Mere, using his years of experience as an expert sommelier to create a wine selection along side his head Sommelier Sandra that perfectly balances with the seasonal dishes on offer.

Wow! Amazing (again). This was our second visit to Mere and it was even better than our last visit. Amazing food everything was perfect and each course was in harmony with the whole menu. Layer upon layer of flavour.The matching wines were perfectly matched (other than the one where we swapped a dish due to my partner not eating fish! Our fault not Mere’s) The ambience was great and service perfect especially the personal touch of the Chef coming to the tables to personally speak to diners This was especially poignant as this was the last night before ‘lockdown 2’. We will be back as soon as we can.

I think this is one of the best fine dining restaurants in London. It was our second time there and if anything I think the tasting menu was even better than last time, and thankfully included the amazing Comte cheese dish which we had previously adored. My only criticism is that I think they should include a few wines in the £20-30 bracket because if one was going to have a set lunch menu, which is very reasonable, it would come out very pricey if you had a bottle of wine as there are hardly any under £50.

Monica sure has got it right !! We had the tasting menu and it was Sublime. The John Dory as one of the best fish dishes I have ever tasted, the venison was perfectly cooked and an amazing pice of meat and the Comte was heavenly. Have dined here twice before and cannot wait to go back after lockdown. The whole team is amazing. Only slight negative was the pricing on some of the wines, our rose was overpriced at £83 a bottle but was very drinkable. Will return as soon as we can

A wonderful experience. 6 course tasting menu with every course absolutely great and impossible to pick a favourite!
The accompanying flight of wine was delivered with a friendly explanation for each glass and got to try some wines I wouldn’t otherwise.
Service was also great and this despite it being the evening that yet another lockdown was announced which directly impacts the team.

As always, it was a joy to be here.

Going for the a la carte versions of tasting-menu items isn't something I usually do, but did this time because I knew just how good they were.

I'm already looking forward to going back again once this second lockdown is over and done with.

The service was exquisite from arrival, during food service until departure. The food was heavenly delicious, sumptuous, and full of layers of flavour in each morsel. The atmosphere was such that one felt relaxed, comfortable with other diners and the staff were the right balance of being attentive and extremely professional. Mere is definitely a restaurant worth another visit.

We had such a lovely night out at Mere. Staff were so helpful and responsive in these challenging times. There was a lot of attention to detail with the food and the service, you could tell that someone in the kitchen really cares which doesn't happen everywhere in London! Thanks so much to the team for such a lovely first post lockdown restaurant experience.

We went here for a belated anniversary meal as we are both fans of Monica and can safely say it was one of the best meals we have ever had. From the moment we stepped through the door until we left the service was above and beyond and the food was truly amazing! I only had to mention once that I as pregnant and everything that followed afterwards was seamless and no trouble at all.

We can not wait to go ago and I can not wait to return to try more of the cocktails!

Went here to celebrate a couple of birthdays. Chose the tasting menu this time after going a la carte last time I came. All the courses were excellent! Service was great despite Covid precautions and the staff are all really friendly. This is definitely my favourite restaurant in London.

You can’t go wrong whatever you choose, we had a mixed table of vegetarian and non vegetarian, all were well catered for and food choices were explained well, even with advice on variations that could be made for the vegetarian with alterations to deserts.

Another amazing meal at Mére!
Wonderful service from all the brigade at Mére, we enjoyed great cocktails from Alan in the bar first

, delicious and inventive. Then we had a fantastic lunch , my partner had the venison tomahawk and I had the Poussin for mains & we were very impressed, I never usually order chicken when dining out but the Poussin was outstanding.
The sommalier helped us choose lovely wines to compliment our food and his enthusiasm & expertise was evident as we greatly enjoyed the selections.
The entire experience makes dining here a real pleasure.

Such a special and memorable evening at Mere, the food (we had the tasting menu) was out of this world. Flavours, colours, textures and presentation were just simply amazing. The evening was made all the more special with a surprise visit, chat and photo with Monica in person. That was the icing on the cake!!!!

Will most definitely return. Loved it there.

As ever, the food was exceptional and matched with equally outstanding wines. Monica's husband and partner, David, was the perfect host. We had the tasting menu and matching wines. Such imagination and flavour with the food and the wines were note perfect. How long will it be before Mere receives a deserved Michelin Star? We can't wait for the next time!
