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.

We've been to Bar Meze a couple of times on work nights out - it's a great place for ordering loads of dishes to share. A real Mediterranean feel, and delicious food.

Right in the centre of town this hidden gem is tucked just behind the high street. It's an independently run restaurant owned by a very charismatic gentleman who is very attentive and allways remembers you every time you come in. The food is out of this world embrace it and try as many dishes off the menu as you can... More

I have eaten here many times before and the food is consistently good. I am prompted to write a review due to the exceptional service we received on Mother's Day 2015. To begin with, we were shown great service before even getting there when I tried to book a table for nine two days before Mother's Day. As you can... More

We were at Bar Meze on Saturday evening for my birthday meal and it was absolutely brilliant. The food was delicious and the service faultless. A huge thank you to Nimatt and his team who were so accommodating and lots of fun, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Great selection of wines too. Having eaten in many restaurants in St Albans... More

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 yourself... More
