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.

Noisy place, best left to hen-nighters

I had wanted to try the food here for ages, as the smells wafting by outside were always tempting. But when I visited with my partner one weekend night, it was so noisy that we couldn't talk at all. The food was average, and the whole experience was spoilt by the fact that you had to shout to make... read more

We were in the area for the night and checked trip advisor for somewhere good to eat. We saw this place and the last handful of reviews had 5/5 so we couldn't not really go could we. We headed there on a Friday night so thought we wouldn't get a table as we hadn't booked and it was already busy... More

Amazing restaurant from the food to the service to the atmosphere you could not fault any of it! I've never been to a better run restaurant, with such a brilliant manager!

Enjoyed two dinners on consecutive nights because we enjoyed the first night so much! The staff were most pleasant and helpful and it was a delight to sample Greek food as good as this in England. the cost was average for the quality of food served and a bottle of Retsina went down very well. One to savour!

Bar Meze is fast becoming a firm favourite with my family. The food is great and we are made to feel so welcome by Nimmat and his team who always remember my kids names and make such a fuss of them that they often insist on popping in just to say hello on the way back from school!! I would... More

I took a group of 8 here for my husbands birthday and it was amazing. The food is so traditional and the staff are friendly. It was well priced and the total came to just over £200 but that included 4 bottles of presecco as well as 8 people's meals. I feel this is very well priced. It was amazing

The restaurant was packed. A good sign, well maybe. The restaurant was so packed, there was no where to stand and despite coming on time, i felt like I was a spare part. I felt sorry for the people eating their meals. We were shown to the bar, whilst we waited for our table to become ready. The food when... More
