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.

Really enjoyed our meal at Mere. A nice varied menu and doing a really good job to make it feel a high end experience despite the obvious challenge of complying with Covid restrictions.

As all the menu looked so interesting we chose the tasting menu. We enjoyed every course, with the venison just about winning the day. Very friendly and helpful staff, none of the 'stuffiness' which can happen in such top restaurants.

Overall fantastic, food and service were great, with a John Dory dish that'll stick in my memory for a while. Staff were very diligent, and all the COVID measures were sensible. The only small let-down (and we're getting picky here) was one or two of the wine pairings with the tasting menu weren't right. Especially the Aussie sweet wine they paired with the tonka bean dessert. But we left happy, satisfied customers, and will be back again in the future for sure.

The taster menu was amazing, loved the duck, scallop, venison, cheese and chocolate. Didn’t think I would like the cheese but it was incredible, loved it with the fog and slight crunch, didn’t want it to finish.
Service was excellent. Thank you, well done for the Covid measures, it felt very safe and we appreciate the trouble you went to. Well done Mere staff.

This was a second visit within a couple of weeks and it was a delight that there is a consistency in the food and service and that will keep us going back. The food is, without question, superb in every respect. The whole dining experience is exemplary; aided by a team who obviously work together like a well-oiled machine; the front of house staff are genuine hosts who certainly know how to make you feel welcome. Can’t wait to go back.

An elegant modern fine dining restaurant with some exceptional cooking and a good wine list. My husband and I had the six course tasting menu. The dishes varied from very good to 3 Michelin star standard. The highlight for me was the comte cheese mousse - this was the star of the show. The duck was also excellent, so delicately cooked and cut; it just melted in the mouth. The only consideration, is that the venison dish was not quite cooked to the same level as the other dishes and perhaps too much meat. Service was excellent and the decor was stylish and clean cut, with Samoan art work adding depth and character to the surroundings.

It was wonderful to get to go to Mere after lockdown, as our initial booking was for 24 March - the day after Boris shut everything down. It was indeed worth the wait, as everything about this restaurant is fabulous - the greeting, the bar, the service, the staff and of course, David & Monica’s wonderful food. We had the tasting menu, and everything we saw and ate was incredible, like eating mini works of art. I really hope we can go again, a wonderful two hours of cuisine at its best.

We went for the dinner tasting menu and we did not go wrong with that. I can be quite fussy with food but I can honestly say that every dish was great! The restaurant itself felt quite intimate even though it is not too small downstairs (the restaurant bit). The staff were very attentive and lovely. I would definitely recommend.
