Description: One of Redondo's best hidden gems, this cozy bar and lounge offers a changing blackboard menu (8-12 items nightly) prepared to order by Chef Di at her open bar-kitchen, and served personally to guests. Colorful tapas and small plates which highlight the clean, fresh, exquisite flavors and ingredients of the gorgeous Mediterranean are typically featured fare. Influences from Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, Greece, and sometimes even North Africa are found on the evolving, seasonal menu.

Was very impressed by our dinner:Our french server Gary was incredible!! We went for our anniversary and our dinner was like a dream : He perfectly paired our 4 courses dinner,the figs appetizer with stilton cheese were so tasty,japanese salad with ginger and our new-england sea -scallop were to "die" for! His recommendation for a nice Port was spot on too! It was our best anniversary diiner ever!

This is attached to the Chez Melange Restaurant. While the service was acceptable, the food was just barely this side of edible.
Fish and Chips, horrible, massive, massive massive, batter ball full of grease, fries were so so.
Egg salad and shrimp sandwich, the shrimp were soft and mealy, think they may have been out too long.
We had high hopes for this place, the tables were worn down to bare wood and the booths are very broken down and uncomfortable.
I would definitely look elsewhere for lunch.

We were visiting my daughter and decided to try Chez Melange on a Monday night. It was "trust the chef night" which they do on occasional Monday's and they also allow you to bring in your own wine with no corkage fee. On this particular night, one of their assistant chefs was being featured doing a four course Italian dinner. This turned out to be one of the best Italian dinners I have ever had (and I've been to Italy several times!). The chef's choices turned out to be an arugula salad, maybe the best tasting lasagna I've ever had, braised pork, and a tiramusu dessert. All in all, a terrific meal ...... we left stuffed and very satisfied. We'll be back whenever we come to visit again and my daughter plans to bring her friends there.

Food is good but not very international, go for the prime rib, the shrimps, the chicken with chapati and wash it down with some prosecco and/or Belgian beer on draft.

A little inconsistent as some dishes are better than others. Trust your server's advice. Service is always wonderful. Haven't been there in a while... need to go back.
