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.

Perfect!

We went for a meal with my Wife to celebrate our wedding anniversary last Friday. The ambiance of the plane it's just amazing, food cooked perfectly and last but not the least, the staff approach is very friendly and welcoming. Top of the range for the Greek food lovers!

Visited with friends for pre drinks dinner on a Saturday night. The restaurant had a good atmosphere with friendly staff and our order was taken promptly. The food was very good, we were disappointed we didn't have room in our handbags for a doggy bag! Would return if back in the area again.

Offered us a 7pm table but had to leave by 8.30pm! Negotiated a 9pm time....but despite the food being really nice, we had three courses and... More

Good value and very tasty, the set metze meal is substantial but full of light and healthy delights. The staff were most attentive even though it was a busy lunchtime with 2 biggish parties already eating.

If Carlsberg did Meze this would be it. Staff that really care about what they do and they seemed to be enjoying themselves as much as the diners... Best Kelftico I've ever had. Way too much food had to give in !

It was our first visit to this place, which has been in town for years and years. We knew the restaurant was popular as they phoned us no less than 4 times to confirm our table (!), and when we arrived the place was packed out mainly with very large parties. Was a little disappointed that we would not be... More
