Excellent Restaurant

My wife and I popped out for lunch on Friday afternoon and decided on visiting Myalacarte. We ate from the set menu and the venue, service and, most importantly, the food was top class as always. I count us lucky to have this great restaurant in Caversham! Always impresses.

Ate here recently and it's clear the people running it love food and serving it at its best, clear right from the booking stage when they said they had several tables booked at our preferred time and 15 minutes earlier would be better, which we were happy to do. We did the fixed price menu early in the week which... More

My partner and I had a date night at Mya Lacarte and it was amazing. The restaurant is small but very charming and the food is great. We had a starter and a main each and both were delicious. Fish was excellent and very well cooked. We did not get a dessert but they all looked amazing from what we... More

My wife and I enjoyed a delicious dinner here last night. We were warmly welcomed by very engaging staff which is such an easy but effective start to a restaurant experience. The innovative menu with delicious ingredients and freshhly sourced combinations easily fulfilled our expectations. Having last eaten here about 6 years ago, we had not anticipated that we would...

Absolutely fantastic! All our guests got to try the amazing food that we always rave about! Service is friendly, professional and personal, even noticing that some of the flowers hadn't arrived so called our florist. Alex got to know everyone's names and took the time to explain the dishes. Hats off the chefs, delicious with a twist on the classic!... More

My starter of smoked haddock, bubble and squeak, smoked bacon. Pancetta and poached egg was cool to cold, the poached egg was perfect so it looked as if the dish had been plated and left for some time before the egg was cooked. The main course, fish of the day (perfectly cooked piece of Cod) was delicious and the accompanying... More

it is not often that the first thing you do on getting in after a good meal is go to trip advisor but this restaurant deserves my attention and praise. The three courses were superb - a beetroot salad to die for and a main course of pig cheek was so wonderfully presented I thought it was a work of... More

Family party of 6 for dinner - first visit. Small, cozy restaurant with attentive and friendly service. Food was really good - we all went for the 'menu' at about £15 for two courses with highlights goats cheese and onion tart, oxtail with pasta (wonderful), pulled pork burger and the fish was fresh and delicious. Plenty of choice and there... More

Went with friends for a midweek lunch. The set menu was good value and I enjoyed all my courses. Service was fun and attentive. Would like to go back and try out the evening menu.

I booked Myalacarte for my Fiance, Ross' birthday from a recommendation from a friend and it did not disappoint. On the phone I was asked if it was for a special occasion where I told them it was his birthday. When we arrived at the restaurant, the host said happy birthday to Ross which was a really lovely personal touch.... More
