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.

Great Greek Goodness

What can I say, the waiters were very welcoming and always had a smile on their faces lifting the atmosphere. The prompt and reliable service could not be faulted.

Over the years I have eaten in here a few times, although having moved a little further out this is the first time in a couple of years. The food is fantastic. Restored my faith in sea bass (I had a bad experience elsewhere). What I like is that the food is freshly prepared, flavoursome, great quality and simple. There's... More

Me and my mum visited St. Albans for the day and we had our dinner at Bar Meze. We enjoyed it so much from the food to the service. We also had a bottle of prosecco which was very reasonably priced. We will be returning on our next visit.

We ordered the set menu which included many different dishes. They were all delicious and there was so much food we took some home with us. We ate and drank food slowly whilst enjoying the atmosphere. The style of food is perfect for a social event as everyone can share a variety of food whilst talking. The service was also... More

This was my second visit to Bar Meze and I drove up from Essex with my friend Sam this time to celebrate her birthday with our partners. We were booked for 8.30 but my friend was not too well and they were able to accommodate us an hour early despite them being packed to the rafters!!! We started with a... More

This place used to be quite good but it’s deteriorated dreadfully recently to the point where it’s genuinely worth avoiding. Have to say up front that the staff are really lovely, friendly, jovial and try really hard. Where it lets itself down massively are on the fundamentals – the food is absolute rubbish and it seems to be pot luck... More

We found ourselves in St. Albans and fell to trip advisor for a dinner recommend and we were not at all disappointed. The restaurant is compact but with a fab atmosphere. The manager was extremely welcoming and accommodating, even remembering my partner's name throughout the meal. The food was delicious (my first real experience of Greek) the manager even advised...
