Inspired by the elegance of French dining as well as rustic Italian cuisine, Melange blends them both together, serving up homely Mediterranean dishes in a stunning setting in London’s Barnet district. Decorated with chic vintage-style furniture and features like exposed brickwork and specially commissioned artwork, this Barnet restaurant has lots of charm and, whether it’s for breakfast, lunch or dinner, on the menu you’ll find no shortage of options.
Start your day with some eggs Florentine (poached eggs and spinach on a toasted muffin with hollandaise sauce) or pop in at lunchtime for something classically French like the croque monsieur (a ham and gruyere cheese sandwich). On the main course menu you’ll find an array of French and Italian dishes. Begin with some oven-baked camembert cheese for two or grilled tiger prawns, before moving on to a main course dish. We recommend the herb-crusted rack of lamb served with mashed potato, sweet corn and French beans with a red wine sauce. For an elegant dining experience in London’s Barnet area, book a table at Melange on the High Street!
Our booking was for 2pm on a Sunday afternoon.We came as a family party of 6 adults to celebrate my birthday, and had wonderful food, wonderful service ,and a wonderful atmosphere as usual.
Excellent food and excellent service. The waiting staff were very attentive without being overbearing and although the restaurant was very busy we didn't feel in any way pressured for our table.
Three of us went for Sunday lunch, and enjoyed excellent Barramundi, Goat cheese and black sesame icecreams, both specials of the day. Friendly and efficient service. Cannot fault!
Always a top experience :) food and staff amazing. Thursday's are 2 steaks and a bottle of wine for £40 - delicious! Will return soon.
Lovely meal at Melange last night. We were initially shown to a table towards the rear of the restaurant, close to the kitchen and toilets - which was very hot! It was a lovely evening so we asked to be moved to the front part of the restaurant which was lighter and airy with the open front - and they accommodated our request immediately. Food was delicious - we started with tuna carpaccio x 2 (one of the specials), tiger prawns and chicken liver pâté. Followed by fish stew x 2, rib eye steak and a fillet steak. All were really tasty - I had the fillet and it was one of the nicest pieces of meat I've had for a long time. None of us had room for puddings! With a bottle of pinot and several peronis, the bill came to around £40 a head, quote reasonable I think. Our only comment would be that the round tables which seat four get rather cramped when food arrives, especially once bread, side orders, wine coolers, water and glasses etc add to the mix! Service was very good, all staff very friendly. Would definitely recommend.
We booked a family meal at Melange on a Friday evening. Right from the start the service was excellent and the staff were extremely friendly. The food was also well cooked - for starters we really enjoyed the fried calamari, which was tender. For our main course I ate rare sirloin steak and my wife tried the lamb shank, which was also well cooked and well presented. The portions were also large. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Thoroughly recommend this place for an enjoyable night out with family and friends.
Having visited Melange Barnet for the first time last evening, we were very impressed by the quality of the food, the relaxing ambience and the friendly staff. My husband, our 1 year old daughter and I had a lovely occasion. Thank you.
My experience was first class, the service, price and food. we had the special lunch price for 2, had a great table. had the beetroot, and salmon really tasty. The staff are wonderful and helpful definitely recommend Melange Barnet.
Food, ambiance and staff all made our visit very relaxing and enjoyable. So good we are going back on Sunday. Well done all of you. We had to wait a fair tome for our desert (we didn't mind) as one of them was freshly made. But to apologise we were given a glass of wine and espressos on the house. Why wouldn't we return after this care.
Love this new addition to Barnet. Friendly staff and good quality feshly made food. The menu has something for everyone and there is always plenty of variety. I particularly like the fact that they give you water on the table without having to ask and the staff are attentive without being pushy. A regular haunt for us whether it be with friends, family or just for coffee.
Staff and service is always good. Unfortunately there was a very large party in this Friday night who were quite loud and did drown out my conversation with my friend but what can you do. Food was good and came quickly despite the restaurant being very busy. Would be nice to see a few new dishes on the menu but overall I like Melange and its a breath of fresh air in not so exciting Barnet.
I have eaten there many times and on this visit took two friends who had never been before , I should stress that I've never been disappointed and my two friends said it was the best steak that have had in years I had the seafood pasta as I've enjoyed it many times before , it was not up to the usual standard and I left most of it The waitress explained that the main chiefs were on holiday and would I like to order something order something from the menus ,to her credit
We recently celebrated my Mother's 70th birthday at Melange. The staff were welcoming, extremely helpful and attentive (without being intrusive) to ensure the evening was a success. A lovely evening was had by all. The food was delicious, dishes were well executed and a good choice on the menu to satisfy each of the diners. We will definitely be returning soon!
Food as always was very good and the staff are always delightful. On the down side we were given a very small round table which made life quite difficult, especially when you've ordered lobster and there are shells and finger bowls involved. We didn't even order a bottle wine and yet cutlery kept falling on the floor due to the lack of space on the table. Finally, it took an age for someone to come and take our dessert order. The restaurant was busy and perhaps they were understaffed.
Went on a Monday evening and my friend and I had the set menu. We both had calamari to start, followed by risotto for my friend and I had the goats cheese stuffed chicken breast. Food was all very good and nicely presented. The set menu offered great value.Restaurant has a nice ambience and staff were friendly and helpful. I will return soon and would definitely recommend it to others.
Thursday night is steak night. We hadn't remembered when we booked. Very good quality meat and perfectly cooked. The meal came with fries which were lovely and a bottle of house wine. Service was excellent so all in all we had a great evening and will definitely go back. Cant recommend the restaurant highly enough.
Another visit to Melange and the food is consistently good. The service is adequate, but can sometimes be a little slow, especially with drinks! That said, I would highly recommend, especially if you're not in a hurry. The cocktails are extremely good too. I love the sea bass with almonds, delicious! The ambience is always very pleasant, and I always look forward to going back.
Lovely food and lovely service! Our table wasn't quite ready so they gave us a round of drinks on the house at the bar while we waited. Love coming here as the staff are always so friendly. Also I rated the noise as loud but I don't think that is a bad thing!
This restaurant is very nice, I had prawns to start and for my main fish stew, it was delicious. Reason for not giving 6 stars. I ordered a cocktail instead of a dessert and they would not serve me as it was past 11pm. I think they need to let customers know when last orders is. Only I was looking forward to that.
First visit to Melange and a really good experience. Our party of seven arrived a bit late but they were very accommodating and welcoming. The waitress was great, the food was great ( I had a lovely whole sea bass) and the wine flowed. We were the last to leave !
Excellent service, the waiters and waitresses were very attentive and friendly. Lovely ambiance, and the food was delicious – I had the salmon from the set menu, and my boyfriend had the duck from the a la carte menu. The set menu was really great value. We'll definitely be going back!
The Food at Melange was great, absolutely wonderful. The service was great, No dark Rum !!!, a little disappointed, but not a show stopper. The only real problem was the table, the table was tiny so small that our meals could not fit on it. They had to remove the water and several other items to fit the food on !!!!
Party if 6. We had a couple of issues with Service - the kitchen had issues with my wife's starter AND main - but they redeemed themselves by taking both items off of the bill. I think that my wife was more frustrated by being told to 'calm down' by the waitress at one point than by the initial problems. However, the food and ambience were both good, and we will go again on that basis.
Service was 1st class from our waitress Anna. The sourdough bread with the crab mayo was out of this world (the crab mayo was pretty good too!). Steaks were very good and cooked just as we asked. Chips could have been a little bit more well done. All in all a very enjoyable 1st visit. We will be back.
The food was excellent and service good! We've been to Melange in Barnet lots of times and we love it. This time it was sooooo busy that we had to wait for our table. The staff were nice so they gave us a free round of drinks 🍹 because we had to wait - so that can't be bad!
Good service. Excellent food . I couldn't get a reservation on line at 6pm so had to go for 5.30pm . The restaurant was not busy. Many tables were empty and we were shown to a table at the back of the restaurant . I would like to go again but to have a table st the front .
Fantastic brunch at Melange Barnet. Always quick service and very tasty. The only criticism I have is that the cups for the hot drinks have the tiniest handles ever!!
A lovely relaxed environment with courteous staff and excellent food. The staff are present and attentive and yet you hardly know that they're there. It's always nice to visit as the sun is going down, because that's when Melange lower the lights, and the candles are lit.
We had a very enjoyable brunch. Everything we saw being served looked very tempting but we went for the eggs Benedict which were really good as was the service. We really liked the restaurant and will definitely have brunch there again and probably give lunch/dinner a try.
this is the best place to eat in Barnet. The food is amazing and the ambience perfect. I take my triplets there and the staff are very child friendly and accomodating. I just got back from steak night for two there and it was amazing as always.
We chose from the 2 or 3 course menu and the food was delicious. The waitress described the daily specials to us and the service was prompt and courteous. A saxophonist was playing on the evening we attended. Highly recommended. We will definitely be coming here again!
Fantastic food and incredibly helpful staff. We've been a few times but keep going back as the whole experience is consistently great. They want everything to be to your satisfaction and do all they can to make it a memorable meal. I fully recommend this place.
Great service, really attentive and pleasant. We ordered from the set menu, and although one of the mains was mediocre, the steak was perfectly cooked. The Brie and Pate starters stood out as the best things we had, and the cheese board was great. This place is great for the money, and worth anyone's time.
We were initially shown to a table in the rear area, near the toilets and the kitchen door, and between two large groups. However, we asked to be moved and the restaurant was happy to oblige. Thereafter, the service was good and we enjoyed our meal. It's not cheap, but the food was spot on.
I haven't had a dinning out experience like this in a long time. The staff where so lovely and didn't want to rush you out the door. The food was extraordinary. I've already recommended this place to several of my friends. Will be back soon.
I ate here on a Thursday evening with two friends and the food was excellent as usual - I think the chef is very good. However we do find it a little noisy for conversation and the service could have been a fraction more attentive otherwise I would have given this a six.
Second visit and probably my last. Service was very slow, ordered bread to go with my starter of mussels and had to ask three times for it, the final time having to get up and go to the bar to ask for it. The bread finally arrived after I had nearly finished my starter. To their credit they did deduct the bread from the bill. Apart from that I was not particularly impressed with my chicken main, it didn't have an flavour, overall the meal was very disappointing.
We love Melange. The staff are always very attentive and the food is always lovely. Wonderful breakfast, lunch or dinner. I have always enjoyed the good. They do wonderful Pan seared scallops , crispy calamari. The steak is also wonderful. I would highly recommend.
Always enjoy a meal at Melange, nice atmosphere, good food and lovely friendly staff. The arrival of Melange in Barnet is a very welcome one as we were lacking in decent places to eat, would recommend to anyone who fanices a change.
This is my second visit and on both occasions they have been excellent. The dinner was lovely especially the lobster dish. The breakfast has lots of healthy options and was very tasty. The staff are attentive and very accomodating. Overall great place.
This was my first visit to Melange in Barnet, my friend and I had a lovely 3 course set meal which was cooked to perfection, the service was friendly and efficient and was good value for money, we shall definitely return.
Slightly disappointed as previous experience here has been excellent. It was very busy, and while our waitress tried very hard and was lovely, the tuna orders were confused (medium tuna served rare) and the soft boiled eggs were cold - off puttingly so. Let's hope this was a one- off as good restaurants in Barnet are thin on the ground!
Great food, good choice on the set menu, good ambience, a bit noisy at first but Barnet residents go to bed early, so crowd thinned by 9pm. No background music - hurrah! Waitress Anna was a delight. We'll be back.
Great find in Barnet. Decor is easy on the eye and the food is amazing, we ate from the set menu which is very reasonably priced. Cocktails were delicious and the staff were very attentive. Will definitely be returning!
Varied menu and tasty food which was all well served and presented. Everyone in our group of 4 chose different dishes and we were all delighted with our choices. A great mid-week local restaurant. We will be back.
We find the quality of the food and service consistently good at this neighbourhood joint of ours, but on Mother's Day we were pleasantly surprised by the special menu with superior dishes, and at similar prices to usual. The fresh passionfruit mousse dessert was divine.
I eat here perhaps every six weeks and usually have the same thing as usual the Steak and Frites were excellent, the apple tart a delight. Service was a little slow but the restaurant was full. It has a lively buzzy atmosphere which I like.
I have been to Melange in Barnet on a number of occasions and have always found the food and service to be excellent. A varied menu with dishes cooked to perfection. I really cannot fault the restaurant.
Good atmosphere, pleasant, profession staff. All courses fir three adults and. Toddler were well.presented and tasty. We were even allowed to 'design' our own dish to suit a vegetarian. Only thing else I would suggest is yo offer a set menu gir Sunday lunch.
Excellent food and service . A little gem in Barnet . We have eaten here many times and we are never disappointed . The only time we are is when we can't get a table .
