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.

Bar Meze is on first sight a really nice restaurant with good atmosphere and friendly staff however the food was distinctly average. We ordered the 'Meze Special' and was told we would be "looked after" by the owner however the food was very average and poor value. Firstly, the 7 'dips' offered as a starter were tiny portions for two... More

It was wonderfully decorated and had a nice atmosphere to it. ..However for some reason my name wasn't put on the guest list and the waiter was not very helpful even though I had... More

We go to Bar Meze regularly. The style of food is mediterranean and healthy. The ingredients are the key thing to this local restaurants success and the staff. They use the freshest best ingredients, what the chef does with it is not overly complex and fussy, the chef lets the quality come through. The staff are as fresh as the... More

We (young couple), visit this restaurant every so often and love it every time. The staff are really friendly and very welcoming. The food is outstanding and very good value for money. The restaurant has a relaxing atmosphere and the decor is nice. Would recommend to anyone who likes this style of food.

Quality fresh food, well cooked and friendly service. This is a regular venue whenever we are in St. Albans. Halloumi chips were new to us and would recommend.
