Melange gets its name from its mix of French and Italian dishes on the menu, though in reality its culinary offering is straightforwardly Mediterranean with a strong British accent: moules marinière and asparagus risotto, but also roasted pork belly and steak and chips.

Those steaks use prime Yorkshire beef, aged for up to 28 days; we tried the sirloin, which pleasingly came with visible chargrill marks and soft red meat. The linguine di mare consisted of a generous helping of tiger prawns and mussels lathered in chilli and garlic and sweetened by ripe cherry tomatoes.

Cocktails focus on well-mixed Franco and Italian favourites (Aperol Spritz, French 75). Breakfast, meanwhile, brings eggs and freshly cooked waffles.

Chesterfield-style seating and white tiled walls create a strong contemporary look that’s clearly a hit with Crouch End locals, as during our evening Melange was packed out with local diners. If Crouch End isn’t your hood, there’s another branch in Barnet.

Frustrating service

Booked a meal for five people.  One meal didn’t arrive until everyone else had finished there’s. This was not only frustrating for the person without food but for everyone else who was eating and had finished before the meal arrived. There was no acknowledgement of this error, no offer of amends and when the bill came they even charged for some bread that my friend had requested while waiting for her food. Having been forced to question the bill they removed an optional service charge, one glass of wine and the extra bread. This was not acceptable so had to challenge again for proper compensation. Making for a very awkward evening. Eventually they removed the charge for the late meal thus making the entire experience unpleasant for everyone involved. Why make people have to make a complaint? This has ruined an entire evening for me and my four companions.
