Great for drinks pre-theatre / pre-friday dinner

On a nice sunny Friday, we were looking for a nice alfresco bar to sit outside with a drink in hand. Often overlooked is the Alemeida Restaurant and Bar, which benefits from a long sunset given the west/east facing Almedia Street. Simply ordered a sauvignon blanc and a mixed-drink cocktail before... read more

I have been a few times to Almeida and I have to say that this time, I was really disappointed. Firstly, it was a chilly night and as so many restaurants do whatever the weather, the air-conditioning was on full pelt leaving the room FREEZING cold. I had to sit with my coat on all night. Not ideal to say... More

We had a table booked for 6 people and the evening was one of the best we have had in London. The restaurant has a great relaxed ambience, comfy temperature and noise levels friendly and discreetly attentive staff and absolutely superb food. What more can one say but thank you, we shall return.

Very relaxed atmosphere and service very effective - well paced, personal touches and guaranteed to get you to your theatre seat on time. We had the Evening Standard offer which had a good range of options - the lamb was just right and the ravioli more a light chicken pasty! Had an extra glass of wine from their good list.... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant, but it won't be my last. A lunchtime visit and we both went for the very reasonably priced set menu, which gave about four options for each course. The food exceeded our expectations, tasting wonderful and being well presented by efficient and friendly staff. It would not be difficult to pay considerably... More

Opposite the Almeida Theatre, the Almeida restaurant - no connection other than geographic, I assume though don't know - is bright and airy. The menu is excellent, with a good value pre-theatre 2 or 3 course choice; Very good linguine in ink, and lamb. My only gripe is that the wine list doesn't offer much value - if the list... More

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!

Almeida gave us a really top quality Sunday celebration lunch.
