Popped in last night for a pre theatre meal, and chose from The Evening Standard special offer menu of 3 course incl a glass of wine for £25. Food was fabulous, wine not bad and as ever there was a cosy unpretentious atmosphere. It's fantastic value for money and can't think of anywhere else that serves a pretty sophisticated menu...

We had a few gin and tonics to start, I chose the Turbot and buttered mash (which doesn't seem to be on their menu online anymore) and went for the Chardonnay. The food was absolutely splendid however the service was just quite poor. It was a Thursday evening, I'd say the place was half full, yet the waiters didn't seem... More

I have eaten at this restaurant before and thought it good. But, with friends, I had lunch there and was disappointed. After a delicious Jerusalem artichoke veloute entree I had the roast beef lunch. The beef was correctly cooked as requested - medium rare - but tough. The roast potatos were substandard. The centres were not soft and floury, whether... More

as even my very fussy and critical daughter (in high-end restaurant and hotel PR in Singapore) thought this very good. The unlimited Prosecco/Bloody Mary offer at lunch-times on Sunday is a definite plus and again, said daughter who is well-used to such offers in Singapore, was astonished at the overall value - and they let her have a Bloody Mary...

We booked this for a New years Eve taster menu and were not disappointed! The food was incredible, service was fantastic- the waiters were attentive and always readily available despite being busy. The food is very sophisticated for the price and we left very pleased with the value of the meal. The restaurant was romantic and cozy, adding to the... More

We'd given the Almeida a rest for about three years for our office Christmas lunch as it had got increasingly disappointing. However, we gave it another try this year and am glad we did. My grilled fish was perfect and accompanied by the best gnocchi I've ever had - very fine, good taste and without that gluey texture they can... More

I had eaten at Almeida several years ago and remembered the food to be good, so when my wife said that some friends were over from Germany I booked it again as it was ideally located for us both. Our initial greeting was good when we arrived and the cocktails were very good. When we were finally seated at our... More
