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.

Party for family and friends

After the christening, a big party of us had a superb welcome at the restaurant, efficient service, nothing was too much trouble, hugely helpful with young and old, over and above expected. Great food, great service. Will return.

We went there a few times, food is really good and staff extremely friendly. Prices are slightly above of what you expect. But place is small, always busy therefore too noisy.

We went here to celebrate a friends birthday. The place was packed which made us think it could take a while for food, but it was fairly quick and tasted great

I can't thank Bar Meze enough for the absolutely fantastic afternoon for our little boys christening party! We had the whole restaurant for our 65 guests. From start to finish, the attention to detail was second to none. Fouad the restaurant owner, was so helpful, friendly, funny & super generous! The food, as always is incredible, so many of our...

I've been here many times, the service is always excellent and attentive. The menu has a good range of choices. The food is good and I've always enjoyed my visits, but when compared with similar food I've had in Greece it's close but not quite there, despite that I'd still visit again or recommend. It's best to book as it... More

We held our joint 40th party here at the weekend. The food, service and atmosphere was amazing! The owner and staff are fantastic and go out of their way to make your experience outstanding. EVERYBODY who came said how great the venue was. If you are considering having a private party here, we would totally recommend it! You won't regret... More

My wife and I have dined here as a couple and in a group and the difference between the two are so overwhelmingly unbelievable. Its probably fair to say the same can be said for most restaurants but we recently celebrated a 60th birthday there and the service was appalling. The little food we did have was okay but in...

I've been at Bar Meze twice, each time I had an amazing experience. First we went for a quick meal and received 1. An incredibly warm welcome 2. A very quick service 3. Excellent tasty fresh food. I then ordered takeaway for a 20 people birthday party and they delivered ! Amazing fresh dishes including the trademark tarama and hummus,... More
