Very, very average food served; refused to leave off the 1000 Island dressing from burger (as if we're all from Oklahoma...); happy hour drinks form the well of unknown brands; bare bones salad.

Everything we ordered was wonderful. Great ambience! Highly recommend! I liked this so much better than The Strand in Manhattan Beach.

Chez Melange is on our rotation of selective restaurants in the South bay to visit when we want great food, fine dining at a reasonable price, and attentive service. This restaurant has very nice ambiance for either a romantic meal or just gathering with friends and family. We like that the noise level is lower than others. It also has... More

Chez Melange used to be one of my favourite restaurants and I always made a point of going for at least one meal there when I was staying at Redondo Beach. However, my most recent visit there with my daughter was memorable for all of the wrong reasons, most significant of which was the attitude of the waiter that served... More

Looking for a different brunch experience, we took up a recommendation for Chez Melange on a recent Sunday. They have a lovely sidewalk cafe with umbrella tables, bar area, and dining room toward the rear of the restaurant, which is where you were seated since we wanted to enjoy the music. Perhaps the music is inside for ambiance and comfort.... More

The reviews on trip advisor got me there. But upon seeing the front entrance, I was worried. The owner Michael, saw us and showed us around. We ended with dinner in the back room. It was lovely. A quiet Monday night. Good wine value. Excellent overall value. Interesting and flavorful menu. Lamb stuffed models with pesto? Yes. Get out of... More

Interesting menu and delicious food. Excellent friendly service and great vibe - lively but relaxed, ambience but not too loud. There was a live musician and different rooms to suit your mood.

Lucky people of Manhattan Beach who have a place like this to make a second home of for any night they don't feel like cooking. I couldn't be more envious! The varied menu means you'll never get bored eating here. Nightly specials take advantage of whatever's fresh and of the moment (like green chile burgers in August when the fresh... More

This restaurant has been in the South Bay for many years, at one time on PCH and now in Redondo Beach. I rate it as one of the finest restaurants I've ever been to and the service is outstanding. The other evening we started with a beautiful Pate served with roasted vegetables and a delicious toasted bread. My companion had... More

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.
