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.

We had a wonderful evening to celebrate our anniversary. We recommend the taster menu and the accompanying taster wines. The ambience and the staff made us feel comfortable and welcome from the moment we stepped through the door.

My birthday lunch just exceeded all my expectations. The service was superb, polite and attentive. As a vegan dinner I was accommodated and welcomed with no issues and the tasting menu adapted to my needs. David as front of the house was amazing and all the waiting staff had a smile on their faces at all times (although hidden behind the face masks) I couldn’t fault it. Thank you again and we will be back! Hopefully next time I will be able to meet Monica as well.

From the moment you enter the restaurant you are looked after and made to feel special! Great intimate bar area for pre dinner drinks
The restaurant is down the stairs and is a super space! We had the lunch menu, as you would expect food was amazing! Wine is quite expensive however complimented the food we chose! Staff were attentive and friendly
Overall experience was superb and wouldn’t hesitate to go again!

We had a fabulous evening at Mere, we opted for the tasting menu and wine pairing, every course was delicious I particularly enjoyed the venison it was soft and juicy and I didn’t want it to finish, my husband isn’t overly fond of chocolate deserts but was blown away by how light the chocolate mousse was, we will definitely be back when next visiting London.

We had a lovely meal at Mere. The food was really great. I dropped it a star on value as this was the first time a restaurant had charged me extra to swap a course on the taster menu but they did let me know beforehand so I had the option to say no! We found the wine list to be very expensive but the wine we had was good and we appreciated the free sparkling water! We would have appreciated a palette cleanser before dessert but other than that, we couldn't fault it! Lovely evening!

Good experience was had by all our party of four.
We enjoyed all courses on the tasting menu; except bizarrely we all disliked the cheese course. To our delight we were offered an extra dessert as compensation! Thank you all for a very enjoyable lunch! We will be back soon.

We had the taster menu with wine pairings, the food was excellent both in presentation and flavour. Wines complemented beautifully and had wines we wouldn't normally choose. Monica visited every table which was icing on the cake!. Perfect for a special occasion.

Had a wonderful anniversary lunch. Originally bought a voucher for the lunch menu, however the owner was more than happy to transfer the cost of the voucher so that we could instead enjoy a 6 course tasting menu, and pay the difference. Food was exceptional, as were the staff. They also made sure to accommodate my pregnant wife, making sure certain items were cooked more throughly. Would definitely return!

Once again this wonderful restaurant delivers on service and food quality. The tasting menu with accompanying wines was a treat after the dreariness of lockdown. The waiting staff were fantastic quiet unobtrusive efficiency. You can see how much they love what they do. Just an amazing experience all round. Go visit this gem which can hold it's head high amongst other Michelin starred establishments. It will only be a matter of time, i'm sure, before they have their own stars.

We had the tasting menu with paired wines, and the food was really top draw and the wine pairings were some of the best I have come across. Just under £200 a head including service charge, only downside was the sudden rush at 10pm to exit to comply with the Corona curfew, but overall a fantastic evening.
