Description: Bar Meze restaurant in leafy St Albans north of London offers a traditional welcome so warm that you���ll feel the Mediterranean sun beaming down on you. Nimatt���s serves only authentic Cypriot cuisine. Their motto is ���Eat, drink, share���, which reflects the informal style of dining of the Eastern Mediterranean. Instead of set starters or mains, you can order a mix of smaller dishes for yourself or to share with family and friends. Meat, fish and vegetables are sourced from local markets and almost everything on the menu is made on the premises using their own recipes. Bar Meze restaurant says that its menu reflects the history of Cyprus, an island at the crossroads of Greek and Arabic influences. As well as the typically popular dishes like falafel, deep-fried calamari, stuffed vine leaves, lamb souvlaki and grilled halloumi. Don���t miss the melinzanoslata ��� a delicious roasted aubergine and tomato dip.

We ate here early on Friday evening. The restaurant was not busy and service was swift, a little bit quick as we had eaten starters and main within an hour. A little gap between starter and main would have been good. The waiting staff and the owner was friendly and welcoming. Food wise we chose not to eat the special... More

Hadn't been here for years, but decided to try it again mid week as we know they can get really busy with big parties. It's nice inside but noisy even when only half full, but it has a nice buzzy atmosphere. We had the meze, all the food was good but not exceptional, main problem was that it was all... More

Expected great things at Bar Meze. The restaurant itself looks lovely, but when we attended the food was nothing spectacular and the service was a bit hit and miss.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is laid back and friendly -... More

We had heard great things about this place and booked in looking forward to sampling their lamb mains which had been highly recommended to us. We had been advised to book a table also, so I booked a table 2-3 hours prior. No problems. The decor in the restaurant is lovely. We really got that "Greek holiday" vibe. The waitress... More

Went here for the first time, phoned the night before and managed to book the last available time slot, sitting right by the window! Starters was amazing, all the home made dips were delicious! For our main we had the slow cooked lamb which was absolutely gorgeous! It fell off the bone and had a generous amount of flavours! Would... More
