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.

This was a great night. The service was friendly and personal. The food was great. The portions were generous and the food clearly freshly made. This was the best restaurant I have visited in long while and I eat out twice a month. Well worth a visit.

Last night we went to Bar Meze to celebrate my father's birthday. We were a group of 12 which sometimes comes with it's own problems but at Bar Meze this was not a problem. From my first contact with the restaurant to book the table I had a feeling we were in safe hands. Fouad is the perfect host giving... More

We often go here on a Friday night after a busy week at work. There's no better antidote to the miserable commute back from London than seeing the happy faces of Fouad and his staff and eating their lovely food. They're genuinely enthusiastic about seeing you and Fouad will know your name if you go there more than twice. My... More

I love this place. I've been to Greece lots of times and the food is what always draws me back so am fussy about Greek food and usually hate Greek restaurants in the UK. But I love it here, great atmosphere, always busy with a very lively Greek feel and the food is always great. I come here with my... More

We ate here on the 9th Jan, I haven't been here for years but had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Great food, a warm welcome and great attention from the staff despite being packed.

Came here for our work Christmas party. We were all warmly greeted and shown to our table which was all ready for the ten of us. Despite it being full with other big groups we never felt like we were being ignored or overlooked. All the staff were friendly and attentive and food was all brought out promptly with little...

I generally come her for birthday parties as it is great for groups, especially because of the late night license and DJ later on. On this occasion I just came for a meal with my partner because we fancied the food. It was still a great evening. The food is always consistently good and the staff and owner are lovely... More

My family have been to Bar Meze many times and have thoroughly enjoyed every meal we've had. The waiters are extremely friendly and we know them well. The food is amazing. I would strongly recommend eating here.
