High-quality food, well-presented, well-served and at a reasonable price. There were a number of tempting seafood items on the menu but, as it was my first time, I chose the 10Oz Sirloin with Bernaise sauce to see how well they managed "The Classics". The (30-Day dry-aged) steak itself was full of flavour and cooked perfectly. Good fries and a rocket salad all served on a little wooden board. Simple but well-executed. My three children all enjoyed their kids-portions which were good value but did not resort to the usual Kid's staples of Sausages or Fish Fingers. The restaurant also has a small but pleasant play area which my 11-Month year old loved. Overall the vibe was one of proper adult dining but with just enough concessions to the kids to make a family meal enjoyable (something of a necessity to survive in Crouch End). Service was efficient and friendly without the clumsy interruptions to enquire as whether our meal was up to scratch that are often experienced elsewhere. Very refreshing. The current location occupied by Melange had almost seemed cursed; with at least three other restaurants opening and closing within as many years. Thankfully it looks like they may well buck the trend and thrive due to attention to detail and good pricing.
