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 european dishes that have been delicately created by Monica and Alberto 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 Nicola, and using his years of experience as an expert sommelier to create a wine selection along side his head Sommelier Alexandre that perfectly balances with the seasonal dishes on offer.

                Second visit to Mere didn’t disappoint. It is every bit as good as when it first opened. Inventive menu, impeccably executed, with attentive service. And a relaxed, less formal atmosphere than many “peers” All in all, outstanding.

                A well balanced and presented tasting menu of 6 courses. The barman mixes a superb cocktail, and the staff are extremely friendly without being intrusive or seeming to ‘hover’. Overall- a superb way to spend a wedding anniversary. Thank you Mere.

                Ladies lunch for a birthday celebration and four of us mostly covered the selection on the a la carte. Beautifully presented and a comprehensive vote for each and every course including the minute taste explosions (canapé). We left replete and impressed by the combinations, quality and inventiveness a real treat for the taste buds.

                The Mere is a professional set up, the staff are welcoming and knowledgeable, the food is outstanding, we had the wine parings which complemented the food entirely. The ambiance in the restaurant is very relaxed and would highly recommend a visit to the Mere for a special occasion

                It was a truly excellent meal. At every course the skill was apparent. BUT At no point did I feel a restaurant was telling me "look how clever we are". All I experienced was an environment where everyone was making my time with you fantastic. Thank you so much and see you again!

                The vegetarian tasting menu was excellent and imaginative. The ambience was nice (understated but interesting decor, comfortable seating, and best of all, no music!). It was very nice that Monica Galetti stopped at each table to meet diners. A totally nice evening. (Wine jwasoverpriced in my opinion, but the food was very good value).

                If you want to go somewhere for a special celebration then this is the place. Everything was lovely but we'd particularly recommend the lobster. Service was fantastic. Thank you for giving us a lovely experience.

                Thoroughly enjoyed our evening to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, the food experience was fantastic, and the service was pretty impeccable. Would have been lovely to have had opportunity to say thank you to Miss Geletti, however it did appear to be full on busy. Thank you for having us!

                Delicious food. So much better than the michelin star restaurant that I had been to. Very good service.
