Specialising in the popular cuisine of the moment from Tel-Aviv, this Mediterranean restaurant is ideal placer for smaller events and intimate dinners.
Focusing on street food you’d expect to find in Tel-Aviv this laid-back and fun restaurant serves up the likes of baba ganush, falafel, meat skewers and traditional handmade cous cous. With strong emphasis on fresh and seasonal ingredients, each menu can be tailored to the needs of your event, with the core ingredients and dishes from the main menu being incorporated. The small plates include fattoush salad, smoked sweet potato and chargrilled aubergine – the ultimate Mediterranean staple which are also great for sharing.
Melabes is based on the idea of food bringing people together and the concept of loving to host, so it makes sense to bring your guests to a place where you can guarantee they will be catered to and looked after all night.
The restaurant is intimate and homey but has a slight industrial feel from the open theatre style kitchen, plus sacks of produce dotted around the restaurant add to the idea that its main focus is authentic and fresh ingredients.
The downstairs area is perfect for a drinks reception (Melabes is licensed) but once you pop upstairs for your meal you’ll find a proper dining area to enjoy your Mediterranean feast in. At such a reasonable price too, it makes perfect sense to hold your next casual event at this Mediterranean inspired restaurant.
With it being located so centrally on Kensington High Street it makes for the ideal spot for an out of office meeting during a lunchtime, or a more formal sit down dinner. The versatility of this venue is one of the main reasons it is worth planning a visit to next time you fancy a taste of some Israeli cuisine in a cool and laid back setting.
