Offering both classic French and Italian dishes with a contemporary twist, for a taste of the Mediterranean in London head to Melange, a trendy restaurant on Barnet’s High Street. With its stylish decor, quality cuisine and a long list of cocktails and wine, whether it is for a sophisticated evening out or a lunchtime treat, Melange is a popular choice, so make a reservation and find out why for yourself!
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!

My wife an I had a most enjoyable lunch lunch at Melange. It was to celebrate my leaving hospital following an operation and I arrived on crutches. The staff could not have been more helpful or caring and the meal was delicious. Not having completely regained my apertite, I was unable to finish all my main course and the waitress offered to pack it up for me to take away. An offer which, although I refused, was extremely well received. We shall definitely be there again - and next time I shall do justice to the excellent food. Thank you Melange!
Great restaurant great service great food. Lovely ambiance and atmosphere this a restaurant if you want to have a lovely evening would definitely return again
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.
For a busy Friday night before Christmas the restuarant did really well with the service being reasonable . The two of us had different steaks which were really excellent, the Fries were up to their usual top class standard and The French Apple tarts for us are superb. We eat out regularly on a Friday using a number of different restaurants. This was probably the best meal we had eaten this year. I appreciate that this review is only of any real use if you like Steak and Apple tart but if you do it's hard to beat.
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.
We had a very nice meal at Melange on Saturday. The food was of good quality and well-cooked; my only slight issue was that the plates could have been warmer, so the food was not quite as hot as we would have liked. Service was swift and pleasant, despite the fact that the restaurant was full by the time we left; glad that we had made an advance reservation. Nice that they still honour the offer for those who have "liked" them on Facebook.
