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.
Scallop course was delicious
I have been to this restaurant several times and it keeps getting better.
Set lunch one of the best bargains in town. Food absolutely exceptional. Seasonal ingredients cooked to perfection.
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!
Wonderful food in a comfortable aesthetic setting. Lunch was good value and relaxed. Thank you!
Excellent tasting menu and wine pairing with excellent service.
Very attentive service without being fussy. Enjoyed a decent aperitif in the cosy upstairs bar. Downstairs int he basement is where the magic happens. Super food, beautifully presented. Can’t wait to come back 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.
Amazing service, stunning food and a great location. I can’t wait to go back!
Very diligent service, delicious food, great wine list. We loved it.
Excellent food as would be expected. My third visit there-the food and service always top class. Ambience not quite the same due to covid and face masks etc but felt perfectly safe and it was great to be back.
We had such a wonderful evening at Mere and it felt like such a treat. The food and service were both amazing and Monica spending the time to come round to every table for a chat was the icing on the cake.
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.
Food was incredible, ever course was delicious. Service was also amazing
Amazing quality food and service. Staff were very attentive.
Fabulous time Excellent food Congratulations Monica on a brilliant meal.
We had a fabulous meal at Mere - the food was delicious (the blackberry & pistachio dessert is a work of art and tasted amazing), the service spot on, very friendly staff and loved the restaurant itself. I can certainly recommend it - thanks for a great lunch!
We had the set lunch menu - gorgeous food, lovely efficient service and no rush. The set menu is phenomenal value. Will definitely be back for lunch and/or dinner!
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.
Wonderful service, food and wines - we had a delightful time and will definitely go back.
Amazing. The food is brilliant. If you're thinking of going, DO!
Delicious food, unobtrusive service and comfy seating.
My partner and I went for he set lunch but got tempted by the tasting menu and we were so glad we did! Ever course was delicious, memorable and beautifully presented. We will definitely be back!
Went to Mere to celebrate our Anniversary. Everything was perfect and the food was just amazing.
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!
On our honeymoon. Tried the tasting menu. Amazing. Wonderful experience.
Nice relaxed vibe. The food was outstanding and service very attentive. Monica came out to say hi which made the meal very special! Would definitely return.
We had a lovely time at Mere. The staff were all very welcoming and helpful and the food was incredible.
Amazing food and really special that Monica came out to greet every table. Thoroughly enjoyable and top class!
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.
Outstanding food as might be expected from Monica. Flavour packed into every course. A joy to the eye as well as the taste buds. Would definitely go again when we get the chance.
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.
Absolutely beautiful and spectacular...food, wine, ambiance and service...loved every moment.
Have already recommended Mere to family, friends and colleagues - a restaurant with an easy feel - no pretensions simply offering an excellent experience. The service was attentive, polite and relaxed - we are already planning another visit.
A lovely restaurant. Great service. My only criticism was about my main meal. Very dry then the extra jus was far too salty.
Amazing experience , everything was perfect , we celebrate my gf birthday and i am so happy we choose this place , most impressed i was how Galleti came on our table and she was amazing friendly and nice , i knew her from tv show but didn't expect in real life to be so friendly and amazing person .
Such a friendly and relaxed experience from start to finish. This is fine dining as it should be - great service, knowledgeable staff and outstanding food. This is a MUST!
