I had the venison pate which was good-nice flavour, the bread tasted delicious and the flavour of the lamb quite superb. Vegetables were delicious too. The restaurant is large and... More

We had a superb meal in the almeida last night. We used to eat there frequently years ago but it had somehow dropped off our radar. It is definitely back on the favourite places to eat list now. It has a nice buzzy ambience, the staff were incredibly welcoming and the service was excellent, but what will bring me back... More

I had the best party at the Almeida. The staff completely entered into the spirit- inventive cocktails, delicious food but best of all the staff: from the receptionist to the bar staff, the waters and the kitchen team. An astonishingly good meal with a seriously talented chef who shares the same sense of fun as the rest of the staff.... More

We were a party of 8 on a fairly quiet night. The service was not very good, the waiter took ages to take the drinks orders. The they brought the main courses without first clearing the starter plates. Shame, we've eaten here many times & never known it to be so poor.
