Don't hesitate to try this little restaurant. Excellent atmosphere, tasty, well-presented food, friendly service. Good choices on set menu and reasonably priced. It's also one of the few that's open on Mondays. Matt is very welcoming and efficient and deserves to do well. Will definitely go again. It was very busy so make sure you book in advance.

I have driven past this place dozens of times over the last few years and had never got round to booking a table.

We enjoyed a lovely meal, the service was very good and this really added to the experience. The food was creative and beautifully presented with lovely flavours. It was as good as Michelin starred restaurants! We also enjoyed wine recommended to us, which was stunning. Great little restaurant which deserves to do well.

Four of us went for the first time yesterday evening for a family birthday. Myalacarte definitely lived up to the excellent reviews we'd heard - a very pleasant all-round experience. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable, but not overly familiar or haughty; the restaurant felt intimate and relaxed (and lighting was just right - so important!); we were not rushed to... More

Wasn't expecting this to be such an excellent restaurant. The food was wonderful and the waiters were excellent - attentive, amusing, professional. The menu is seasonal and changes according to availability of ingredients. I thoroughly enjoyed the wood pigeon breast with beetroot and feta starter. The quality, taste and presentation were reminiscent of a meal at L'ortolan! The asparagus and... More
