Fantastic service- friendly and professional. Excellent choice on a set menu -all very much enjoyed by our party. Delicious food. Very accomodating when we ran out of time for desert as we had tickets for the theatre. They had kept our table and served us in the interval! Brilliant. Can't wait to return,

My wife and I booked this restaurant for a pre-theatre meal because we were attending the Almeida Theatre which is literally opposite the restaurant. What a find. Friendly greeting, attentive staff, great food and wine. I'd recommend starting with a glass of the Argentinian (Moet &) Chandon sparkling wine. We had the fixed pre/post-theatre menu which was excellent and fantastic... More

Our first visit in at least a couple of years. Good service and well delivered on the whole. We had the prix fixe menu and our veggie friend went a la carte. Our meal was very good, great flavouring and value for money. However, do NOT order the truffle and potato ravioli! What a rip-off! £18 for just two individual... More

Lovely welcome as ever- shown to a table near the huge windows and immediately shown menus for both set and a la carte menus. Water was brought immediately together with warm bread and butter. Starters arrived in a timely fashion and were beautifully presented especially the gravadlax. He mains we chose were pork belly and trout. Really delicious. Can't fault... More

I have eaten at The Almeida for many years but my recent visit was a disaster. The restaurant was empty and no wonder. Awful menu, poor service below average food. There is a relatively new chef cooking. I shan't be visiting there again I'm afraid.

This is an excellent place to have a meal and a conversation. Good food, beautifully presented. Service is friendly, efficient, discreet and speedy. Tables are far enough apart to give you private space. It is airy, light, spacious. They do a very reasonably priced set meal for pre-theatre - the Almeida Theatre is literally across the road. I took a... More

We went there after theater, three courses for 22£. The food is delicious, portions are relatively small, except for the dessert, but the quality is extremely high. Good service. Defintely recommended. It's a five stars review considering we had the pre/post theater offer, at full price it'd be probably a bit too expensive for what you get and it'd go... More

Visited this restaurant as part of London Restaurant Festival. The menu was varied with plenty of choice. The food arrived quickly and was delicious, no need to say more. The waiters were attentive, even remember who ordered what, such a small but impressive detail. Highly recommend a visit.
