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.

Thankyou Fuad and team for a fantastic evening. We invited 38 guests,a mix of family and friends, to celebrate our son's 21st birthday and had a great evening. It was a busy Saturday night but the food was delicious and served quickly and efficiently. Nothing was too much trouble to make the evening success and once the meal was over... More

Our host was a little too overbearing, laying on the charm a bit too thickly and with more than a whiff of cheese. While I welcome helpful suggestions, it felt like a bit too much pressure and we added a couple of side dishes at his 'suggestion'. Felt like he was a bit of a used car sales man looking... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants, so when we were looking for somewhere to hold our wedding reception we knew immediately where we would have it. We booked the entire restaurant and had over seventy guests. Nothing was too much trouble for Fuad and his team in the planning stages and on the night; we were brilliantly looked after.... More

We'd heard some good things about Bar Meze so we're quite excited to give it a try. Sadly we walked away feeling more than little bit disappointed. While we were ordering, the waiter recommended that we add a couple more dishes to our order, and suggested two specifically. Not wanting to walk out hungry and always happy to be guided... More

Meze literally means a selection of hot and cold, which kind of sums up my experience. The restaurant looks lovely, and as I entered, I was greeted by a warm and welcoming gentlemen (I believe the owner ) who showed me to my table. The ambiance was homely and the decor was modern, while still nodding towards traditional Greek Taverna.... More

We had 60 guests for a 70th birthday and had a wonderful time. Very attentive staff and rapid service despite our numbers. Informal atmosphere but friendly and efficient. Divine swordfish and great chicken in sauce and tasty lamb. Very good berries with yoghurt and honey. Fuad made a great effort to plan for this event and we took over the... More
