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.

4 of us dined here last night. The staff were very friendly. I and one other ordered the tzatsiki and this was very nice. 2 others ordered the keftedes as a starter and were not impressed. I ordered the keftedes as a main course and it was more like lamb shashlic kebab in an indian restaurant. I have had keftedes... More

Popped in for dinner on a Friday night. We got a table without booking, which I appreciated, however you could spot that there were empty tables, even for people that arrived after us and hadn't booked. A waiter took our drinks order, then the manager spotted that no-one asked what we wanted to eat, so he took our food order.... More

A bit dubious at first as the menu prices put me off but I really wanted to try something different and sometimes the price can spoil an opportunity to buck the norm. If you haven't done Greek style meze they similar to tapas. The staff will explain so no worries on that score. The beer is bottled and quite dear... More

Felt like a king feasting on the variety of delicious meze dishes.. food heaven! We went for a number of small dishes rather than the larger main course dishes. The variety of delicious flavours is still making my head spin and my mouth drool. Add to that that the host was totally charming.. and of course a rare steamy summer... More

What a quality little find! Cool place, decor is clean, fresh and different. The staff were really helpful but the only thing I would say is that because I was a solo traveller (working away) they placed me on a table that was laid up for 4 people and then decided to clear all the cutlery for the other 3...

Our family visited the restaurant for a birthday celebration. Although a small restaurant - certainly need to book, it was excellent. The staff very friendly. Food very fresh and delight to eat. Not cheap for 4 of us but well worth the money. Would come again.

unfortunately I cannot comment on the food here but I can comment on their professionalism. I made a reservation request online for last sat night....received an email to say they would be in touch asap to confirm, I'm still waiting now. Moral of the story, book by telephone. They obviously didn't have any availability and I was therefore not important... More
