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.

    Setting great, But Sunday set menu was limited. Supplements for 2 of the 4 dishes as mains. My overall feeling was the smallest amount of food served that you could get away with with being felt as really ripped off. And plates being removed whilst I’m trying to eat is just a no in my book

    What an amazing experience - just so sad it is going to close!! Everything about our experience was perfect, and ordinarily I would highly recommend anyone to go there. We hope the next venture for the Galettis will be as successful and look forward to visiting wherever and whenever that will be. Good luck and thank you - it was a real pleasure.

    Another superb meal at Mere. We took the lunch menu (£75pp) and bill ended up about £300 (we like to drink). Well worth it, we had a super time. Missing le Gavroche so we are eating through the different fam restaurants

    We were given a great genuine welcome to Mere. A nice pre meal drink in the bar while we selected our menu choices and then downstairs to the restaurant. Every course was a taste sensation coupled with an exceptional bottle of wine. The service from every member of the team was top class. I would recommend a visit to Mere you won’t be disappointed.

    My husband and I dined here last night. The food was excellent. He chose lobster salad and duck and I ordered asparagus and lamb. The lamb was the stand out dish of the evening. I have marked down as it was quiet when we arrived, the ambience improved as the evening progressed and the restaurant filled up.

    WOWW What an experience, beautiful service as soon as we arrived - the cocktail bar upstairs is a perfect entry to the restaurant. We chose the taster menu which was beautifully proportioned and perfectly chosen. (sometimes they can be overwhelming) but the 6 courses plus a bread course was Perfect. Monica came out and said hello too which was wonderful. Thank you to the whole team who made our evening very special.

    The food was delicious and well presented! Excellent lunch menu and great choices. The service was good apart from one guy that served us water and kept filling our glasses which makes me very anxious! So when I asked him not to refill the glasses, he told me that they charge £3 for the water and then was ‘unlimited’, a remark that I found very rude. As if the people that go there are bother about money! Overall it was a good meal.

    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.
