A great eating experience

Almeida gave us a really top quality Sunday celebration lunch. A family celebration of 12 was accommodated in a very well setup side room and unlike a number of restaurants (out of sight out of mind) we all received first class involvement from the waiting staff.

Superb food & slick service. Experienced the tasting menu which was... tasty (!) but notice they do other more affordable menu options & I'm sure the quality of dishes is not compensated. A must do & will certainly be back again soon!

I am a local and a foodie. This is a phenomenal restaurant in a quiet street which makes it even more special as its really a hidden gem The menu (I have been coming here for almost 2 years) keeps changing, always on a fantastic level, a mix of British , French and Mediterranean influences which is quite unusual and...

Booked the Almeida for a pre-Theatre supper before we visited Sadlers Wells, based on previous reviews, and we weren't disappointed. Lovely welcome from the front of house, followed by prompt and attentive service from all the waiting staff. We chose from the Theatre menu which offers 3 choices per course with the option to take 2 or 3 courses for... More

Was a wee bit nervous about about the choice of a place of which none of the party had personal experience, for a much looked-forward-to wedding. But the evening was absolutely brilliant. The food was spectacular, including the canapés. The wine list was excellent & not stupidly priced. We were hosted (by Elenora) in a way that made us feel... More

So it's not on Upper Street but just 40 - 50yds from it, opposite the Almeida theatre. Its a big space with a few tables outside and inside, the tables are well spaced so you don't hear conversation from the tables next to yours. Saying that, the restaurant was probably on 25% full from about 8pm which is disappointing on... More

My wife and I chose Almeida with its private room for our intimate wedding reception. All the way through the weeks leading up to our big day the team, led by manager Anthony and events coordinator Anna, were attentive to every request we made, whether it was an issue with the menu or helping us choose wine. And the evening... More

We went for dinner and from the first minute the staff was very professional. The food was superb, we tried many different dishes and none of them disappointed us. After dinner we could speak with the head chef Tommy B. who explained us how some dishes are made and they really care about every single detail. Unlike in many other... More

Wonderful meal for our anniversary. The service was excellent. We were in the lull between pre and post theatre crowds. The taster menu with paired wines was outstanding. Hard to pick a stand out dish, as all so good, but for me the John Dory just had the edge. The staff were charming and efficient and got us out in... More
