it was lovely to be greeted with a friendly "happy birthday " as we were shown to our table. The service was excellent and the staff knew about their food,however I didn't feel they were at all intrusive. The dining area is small but not overcrowded, you feel special eating here. Rather than have a starter we had the vegetable... More

Although not a true regular (wrong side of town) I have been many times over the years and I love the early evening set menu so I was really pleased to see the featherblade steak back again! Lovely goats cheese and beetroot salad to start, followed by beautifully soft, pink steak with a fab bottle of Malbec. Great service by... More

We had a set menu with smaller portions but as it was 3 courses it ended up sufficient to feel satisfied. Atmosphere was nice, staff friendly and well trained. The food was very nicely cooked, tasty and good quality. Outside of the set menu though I find the prices a bit high, hence the 4*, the set menu though is... More

We went to Myalacarte in May with my husband, on a Friday night. We where very surprised at first to find how tiny the room was - no intimacy whatsoever! Uncomfortable chairs as well... I am extremely surprised to see how many people find it perfect for a romantic dinner!!!!? The service was friendly and competent, perhaps a tad intrusive... More

Hello Nat Many thanks for taking the time to review Mya. We are very pleased you enjoyed the food. But alas, the noise level on the particular night you visited was obviously not an enjoyable experience for you. On very rare occasions, we have noisy nights but as a defence, we try and control this as much as possible. We... More

Good to see local independents doing well. I was going to be in the area and so looked at TA. Because of needing to be somewhere elsewhere in Reading early evening I needed a restaurant that was open early. The website said 5pm - but when we got there the restaurant didn't open until 6pm - meaning we could only... More

I have been here a few times and everytime the experience is phenomenal. The food is always freshly cooked and delicious. Service is very courteous and despite being a tiny bit pricey it really is worth it. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed, the decor is also immaculately done. Be sure to book early as the restaurant is quite small!

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here and enjoyed a wonderful meal. The food in all three courses was excellent: very well presented and with interesting taste combinations. Service was friendly and the atmosphere of the restaurant relaxed and intimate. I can thoroughly recommend this restaurant. We'll certainly be going back.

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.
