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.

Three of us had a wonderful evening at Bar Meze Thursday evening. It's been a long time since I've eaten here, but I'm not sure why. An excellent menu to choose from and the food is delicious! We shared 3 starters, hummus, taramasalata and halloumi, with pitta, all good! My kleftiko was delicious and cooked to perfection, not small, so I took half of it home! My sister loved her lamb souvlaki, and my niece her charcoal cooked chicken tikka! No room for dessert! It was full and had a great atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and super efficient! Nice wine too! Very impressed.

Love this place, the food is epic and the owner is brilliant. We are regulars and visited with our new baby today and were greeted with complimentary glasses of prosecco - a lovely touch. You couldn’t meet a friendlier, more pleasant restaurateur than Fouad the owner. Highly recommended.

We had the mixed meze and with a drink each it worked out to £28 per head. The starters were interesting and fine. Their version of a Greek salad was not the sort of salad that you get in Greece although it was quite nice. It was extremely noisy, very full, so must be popular, and with quite loud music at times. It was a cold night and there was a lot of cold air which I guess was coming from the glass roof, quite uncomfortable, we sat near the staircase so others must have felt it as well. The main courses were disappointing, the pork was tough, the waiter asked us if everything was OK and we said that the pork was not very good so they brought us some more. Sadly the pork still took a lot of work to cut through it and I have have chicken which had much more flavour than the one that we had last night. Also the meat was cooked far more on one side than the other.

We had lunch here on Mother’s Day. After a small mix up with the table size we have been offered a bottle of Prosecco on the house.
Food was good and portion sizes were adequate.
Considering how busy they were service was very efficient.
