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 celebrated my son passing his driving test with a delightful meal here. The staff were friendly and the food was excellent- especially the whitebait and sea bass and there was plenty of choice for the veggie in our party. We'll be back....

Parked near this place and almost walked by pecked at the menu met the owner and went in. Lovely ambiance, great menu but the owner and the staff set it apart. Almost made me want to live in St Albans. As a visitor from Toronto, I have eaten in London, Paris, Rome, and New York and this gem could compete... More

A busy bustling place that serve good food and have a good selection of wines and drinks. It gets very busy and you need to book. If you want a quiet night out this isn't the place to go but if you want good food, service and somewhere with a bit of fun this is the place

Went to Bar Meze on last night with a few friends and the place was buzzing but despite this the service was great, It was our first time and wont be the last. The food was great, and lots of little dishes to share. The lamp chops and calamari were really nice and the food all came all came out... More

We had a fantastic time, the service was great and very personal and the food was just as good. Will be returning again to try some of the other dishes (that I didn't have room for). I would definitely recommend... More

We eat here regularly, and are never disappointed. The food is excellent and the staff friendly and welcoming. On several evenings here, my friends and I were given a free round of drinks at the end of the meal. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

We had a great time here. We ordered the hommus, grilled peppers, falafel, green beans, meatballs and a chicken dish. The food was so fresh and delicious. Best hommus I've tasted (and I've had a lot). The meatballs were fantastic. We will definitely be going back soon. They have very friendly staff too which always makes a difference.

We've been to Bar Meze a few times - work parties, New Year's Eve and this week, with the family for my birthday. It's ALWAYS good. Fouad works very hard and makes everyone SO welcome and he was very kind to my 4 year old grandson, getting him a 'beer' and making a fuss of him. We had the usual... More

I'd not heard of this place before some friends who live locally booked it for our night out. I like independent restaurants and it certainly didn't disappoint. Food was delicious fresh, tasty, well cooked and presented. We ordered the meze platter to share and everything I had was excellent. Even my coffee was wonderful (and I'm a proud coffee snob)....
