Had an interesting dinner last night. The service was impeccable - exceptionally friendly and attentive Maitre D and the other staff were great too. I'd give them 5 stars. But the food was a little off key. It started well, but the main course, a "Boullabaisse," was disappointing. For one thing, it wasn't a soup, just a few seafood items... More

I went to restaurant today after a long day at the studio as busy working and looking forward to a wonderful meal and the service from the racist receptionist was absolutely awful and unacceptable. First she look at me in a derogatory and confused startled look which was rather surprising especially when I don't look like I have been dragged... More

We hadn't been to Almeida Restaurant for several years and it was a wonderful return. The service was excellent - friendly, thoughtful but relaxed. The food was also very good, and fantastic value with the Evening Standard deal. We will definitely go back - and won't wait years this time!

Went there at 5:30 for a pre-theatre dinner. The Almeida Restaurant is across from the eponymous theatre (they are not otherwise related). It turned out to be superb—distinctly better than the favorable Good Food Guide entry had led us to expect. Three of us shared all the dishes. We had three starters: chicken liver parfait with various chopped veggies; pan... More

What a find! A friend who had been before treated me for lunch here. I expected it to be no more than a nice restaurant associated to a great theatre. I was in for a treat. We were the first there and placed proudly by the window and the light. I decided to go for the set lunch of two... More

We were looking for a restaurant with good food and ambiance where we could enjoy conversation with our guest without too much background noise.

Almeida restaurant sits just across from the theatre, they have an offer of £20 for two courses and a glass of wine, which were really good. The fish was cooked to perfection, everything great, very friendly staff, no complaints!
