Great food and great service characterised the 2 day meeting I had at Almeida in their private dining room. The staff was professional and welcoming and put a lot of effort into accommodating the needs of our group of 12, and they were flexible regarding their menus. The extraordinary food blew the participants of the meeting away, so I can... More

I've eaten here several times over the years . It's consistently good and although pricy is still value for money if you enjoy fine classic food . I highly recommend eating here .

Our table opted for the tasting menu which had a wide variety of dishes, ranging from scallops which were presented beautifully, to suckling pig (best i've ever had) to grilled halibut. Well-priced, friendly service and great atmosphere. I will be back very soon!! Would highly recommend!

The low key lighting, lack of noise, and large space makes for a good environment for conversation. Service is formal but good without being intrusive. There's a nice selection of cocktails on offer. It's slightly on the pricey side, but the food lives up to it though none of it blew me away. Would visit again to try some of... More

The restaurant is beautifully appointed - modern & airy. The service is a touch formal but super professional and the waiting staff are all well drilled. It works smoothly. Had the pre theatre menu which is 2 courses for £19 or 3 for £22. The food was v good tho not exceptional. It was all well executed.

Just to say thank you for such professional service and a lovely delicious and well-presented meal when we ate there last week. And thank you for hurrying things along - we did get to the film in time. We will take more time next time to do justice to your fine dining. Especially the lamb was a (medium-) rare treat.... More
