The restaurant is rather small and that night was packed by us since we were a big group of people, therefore also noisy. On the other side they managed to serve our food and drinks very fast. The quality of the food was good, everything was tasty, especially the delicious starters with their bread served warm. We have been really... More

Online booking system can be improved. The dishes are all very tasty, good choice, just the right amount. It can get a bit cramped and noisy in the weekend evenings. The service is effective and friendly. You can have a full dinner with only delicious "mezes" starters.

We love tapas and had heard good things about this place. The food was great and the menu is extensive. Service was really good too. The only downside to this place is that it is small. We went on a Saturday night and it was full..and very noisy!

Me and my girlfriend stopped in here for a spot of lunch while we were wandering around St Albans. It looked attractive from the outside so thought we'd give it a shot and I'm so glad we did. Upon walking in with the music and decor I felt I was in Greece. It had a fantastic aroma and an incredibly... More

This was our first visit and we went with friends who introduced us to this great restaurant. The atmosphere was fun and relaxed, Service top notch, waiters so friendly and food lovely, with a lot of variety. We even had a little complimentary bag of samples to take home, need to go again to taste some more from the menu.... More

Excellent choice for vegetarians, all the dishes we had were delicious, especially the naughty haloumi chips - wow! I think the baklava we had for dessert was the nicest I've ever tasted, ever. The ambience was really nice; the *background* music really put you in the mood; staff were friendly and attentive but not overbearing. The cost overall was not... More

We have been here before and loved it- it was just as good the second time around. The food portions are huge and therefore it is difficult to finish but it's so delicious it's easy to over eat! The veggie options are great.

My 9yo son wanted to celebrate his birthday with the family in a Greek restaurant. We've eaten at Bar Meze several times over the years and it never disappoints. The food was great - particularly the tagine, which we'd never tried before. My son also enjoyed having "Happy Birthday" sung to him too. Staff were friendly and the food arrived... More

Description
Nimatt's Bar Meze in St Albans serves the native cuisine of Cyprus - the historic meeting place of Europe and Asia. The dishes have Greek, Ottoman and Arabic influences resulting in a unique blend. The company motto "Eat, Drink, Share" pays reference to the Eastern Mediterranean way of eating, that is both healthy and fun. There are no set starters or main courses, and you can order a snack or a main meal simply by varying the number of dishes chosen. Our meat, fish and vegetables are bought direct from the relevant markets. The dips and the majority of the prepared food items are freshly made in our own preparation kitchen to exclusive Bar Meze recipes.
