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.
PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR MERE BAR IS OPEN ALL DAY FROM 12:00 UNTIL 23:45 MONDAY TO SATURDAY FOR DINERS AND NON-DINERS WHERE DELICIOUS COCKTAILS AND SNACKS ARE AVAILABLE.
Mere is the first solo restaurant venture of Monica Galetti and her sommelier husband David. Situated in Fitzrovia’s electric Charlotte street, Mere is bringing together Monica’s South Pacific and New Zealand heritage with elements that are intrinsically modern European.View Private Dining Details

ARRIVAL WELCOME WAS GOOD AND ATTENTIVE. SERVICE WAS SECOND TO NONE. EXCELLENT WAITING STAFF AND KNOWLEDGEABLE SOMMELIER.
FOOD GENERALLY EXCELLENT AND DELICIOUS.
OVERALL REALLY GOOD EVENING
Superb food. Every course was outstanding. We would throughly recommend the restaurant. We had the set lunch 3 courses. Great value Very attentive staff and excellent service. Can not wait to go back. We will definitely visit again
So far the best restaurant I've every been to. Nice, modern and the best ambiance!
It was a pleasure to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary at Mere! Food was delicious, service was perfect, and the atmosphere romantic and quiet. Perfect setting for a special occasion. I can't wait to visit again!
This was the second time my Husband and I have come for lunch. Our intention this time was to try the set lunch menu as we had the tasting menu last time but the items on the tasting menu were so good we couldn't resist it. We had a lovely bottle of New Zealand wine for only £40. All the courses were delicious. They also serve very good coffee albeit at over £5 a cup by the time they have added service charge. Would happily come here again. Service was also very friendly but not intrusive.
BEEN TO MERE ON MANY OCCASIONS AND THE FOOD IS ALWAYS AMAZING THE STAFF ARE VERY ATTENTIVE, GREAT WINE LIST, OVERALL FAB!
Am still thinking about the food days later. A culinary experience with the warmest welcome. Made me so happy.
Once again Mere was superb. A wonderful end to a birthday. It has never disappointed and we have brought many friends here.
Excellent fine dining, great service. Kiwi inspired.l!
Friend and I tried the tasting menu at Mere. Delicious food and friendly attentive service. Highly recommended
Excellent food and service
Extremely noisy atmosphere
The wines were in good accordance with the food but rather rare for the charge or how to serve 8 glasses out of a6 glass bottle!!
If we come again we will not go for the wine selection!!
Great layout, thoughtful decoration and opulent bar. Impeccable service and tasting menu was thoughtful.
Yet another wonderful evening spent at Mere, made all the more special by a meet and greet with Monica herself. The tasting menu / wine flight was incredible. Love the fact that all the staff are so knowledgeable. Always something new to learn
Was a lovely treat as we was in London for the weekend and had noticed that Monica had opened a restaurant and wanted to try..was not disappointed.
Outstanding food, creative cuisine, friendly and personal service and wine list with a lot of choice. Great for tasting menu too. Nicely decorated and there has been a lot of attention to detail
Interesting menu. Wine good value. The baked Alaska dessert amazing
Absolutely fantastic. The flavours of the food meant that you didn’t want any of the courses to end. Service superb.
Out standing food and wine to match. The bar upstairs is great for cocktails before and after your meal!! Staff are very friendly and the restaurant has a very laidback and comfortable feel!!
Mere is a must for anyone who loves food and dining out. The experience of a visit to this wonderful restaurant is a joy from first to last, the staff could not be more friendly or accommodating and did everything they could to ensure that we enjoyed ourselves. First class.
Excellent work in the Mere kitchens at lunchtime, and friendly service out front (despite one unnecessary exhortation to 'Enjoy!' and a largely unintelligible sommelier) as we enjoyed both the short lunchtime menu and the a la carte. One feels welcomed at Mere, whether by the smiley cloakroom attendant and bar staff upstairs or the well managed team down below. Despite the tele-fame of the owner, the restaurant is not - yet - as well-known as it deserves to be in its out-of-the-way Cranbrook Street home. PerM
Excellent food, wine and service. Friendly atmosphere, would definitely visit again on my next trip to London.
Lovely restaurant, excellent food and really friendly and helpful staff. One of my guests is gluten free so I advised Mere in advance. They were amazing. As soon as we were settled one of the waitresses came to the table and really nicely asked who was the gluten free guest. She took her through the menu explaining all the options available, there was plenty of choice. Well done.
Lovely anniversary dinner. We began with cocktails in the bar. For a Monday night the restaurant was very busy and there was a buzz about the place. Not too noisy to enjoy conversation though. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Very pricey but worth it for a special occasion. The staff were very friendly and service was good.
A wonderful experience from the enthusiastic welcome, to the attentive service throughout. The food was exquisite, innovative and beautifully presented. The restaurant is testament to the relaxed vibe given; spacious and beautiful. We had a matinee theatre performance to attend, and this was accommodated without reproach. The tasting menu was timed perfectly, with each course complimenting one another, perfectly timed allowing for a relaxed, enjoyable lunch. The lamb and blackened cod the showstoppers from our menu. The ambiance was perfect. A must visit for anyone who enjoys food that is elegant, punchy and making a statement! Highly recommended, and we cannot wait to head back to treat ourselves some more!
Monica and David Galetti's restaurant is an absolute find. As you would expect, the food is outstanding, perfectly cooked, seasoned and put together. The ambience and décor is creative but not pretentious and the staff are well trained, know their stuff and amiable not snotty. The whole experience is fabulous and how restaurant dining should be, however it's rare to get that these days but the Galettis have it all sewn up. This restaurant is a total must.
We had the set lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food, wine and service were very good. Unfortunately we were seated next to a pair of loud and boorish businessmen who were completely oblivious to everyone around them and whose behaviour worsened during the meal and ruined the ambience of the restaurant. We eventually had to leave abruptly when we could take it no longer. Such a shame as they ruined our day and what was a very nice lunch.
Fantastic restaurant, people down to earth, amazing food , amazing service! I recommend this restaurant, you ll have a great time
Excellent as always. A warm welcome by David and the rest of the staff, informed advice from the sommelier, Sandra and lovely food. The tomato consommé with the crab starter was soothing and warming - a hint of peppery spice at the end. The poussin was perfectly cooked with an interesting combination of flavours on the plate - langoustine, chorizo, sweetcorn and mushrooms. A well constructed Pavlova with kiwi sorbet to finish. Great evening.
Wonderful experience of culnary delights, attentive staff and relaxed atmosphere.
Delightful evening spent at Mere. Fantastic food, beautifully presented. Each course was exceptional. Wonderful range and combinations of flavours and textures. Nothing out of place.
Yummy food, attentive service. Thank you!
Went here to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary and had the most wonderful meal. We had the tasting menu and all dishes were excellent. The atmosphere in both the bar area upstairs and in the restaurant downstairs was great. Food and service from all was amazing. We were lucky enough to meet Monica who signed our menu for us. This was a great touch to meet her in person after seeing her on TV. I would highly recommend this place and will certainly return when in London again.
Thankyou to all the staff who looked after us and Monica and her team for the wonderful food and wine. It was a great way to celebrate our anniversary and make it special.
Beautiful new restaurant. Great bar with attractive dining room downstairs. The room quickly filled up and had a real buzz as the team chatted with customers. The team were really friendly and attentive. Asking about dietary requirements and then guiding us accordingly, recommending changes to meet those requirements in great detail. Tasting menu was very tasty, if a little small. Great wine list and the Sommelier did a fantastic job of describing the wines and recommending something interesting that met our tastes.
It was my birthday treat. I have always been a fan of Monica’s both on Masterchef and the Hotel series. Her restaurant meets all the standards she demanded in both.
From the decor, service and food all were of excellent standard. My wife particularly enjoyed the wine list. A birthday to remember.
We went to celebrate our anniversary and were looked after from the minute we walked in. The staff were attentive without being over the top and the restaurant felt relaxed and special to visit .. the tasting menu was lovely especially the dessert. Monica came out in the end to speak to all the diners which was lovely .. I would definitely recommend a visit .
One of the best all-round dining experiences I’ve had. Was wonderful to meet Monica as well.
My second time at Mere, first time I try the lunch menu. This is really more art than food. At Mere I had the best food in London so far.
Did not disappoint in any way, really great food. We had a wonderful evening. Thanks to all the staff.
This is an excellent restaurant. This is my second visit and both times we had the tasting menu with wine pairings. Everything about the place is gorgeous: the food, wine, staff and ambience.
Celebrated partners birthday here again. Great tasting menu, awesome wine selection. Fantastic staff!
