Delicious, relaxed, happy

I've visited Myalacarte several times over a number of years and it's always been great. The service is friendly and informal, without being too much (I love a place which lets me pour my own wine!), the atmosphere happy and relaxed and the food utterly delicious. Their fixed-price menu is... read more

It's difficult for most places to live up to the way you remember it, however, after coming back for lunch after such a long time away (we've been living abroad), Myalacarte is as great as it always was. Superb food and hospitality, enjoyed every bit of it.

I actually came here a good few weeks ago but never wrote a review...and I've just found myself thinking about the food I had (this says a lot!) so thought I just had to come on here to let other people what they might be missing in Reading! I've only dined here on two occasions but the food here is... More

Have visited Myalacarte on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The welcome is always friendly, the menu always has lots of choice, and the staff are happy to help with recommendations. The wine list is also extensive. I visited on this occasion with colleagues to celebrate my leaving to start a new job. As a group we preordered and... More

When we went to the resturant we did have to book as it is understandably a very popular place. The menu itself is good value for the quality of food you get although the portions are not huge. The three course meal was very good and the main and starters were absolutely lovely with fresh ingredence and great taste including... More

We had gone for a friend's birthday dinner and had a really good time. The service and food were absolutely fine but not sure if we would go back though...

My second visit to this amazing find and I was not disappointed. I chose from the 'Daily Menu' and the food was fabulous. The best I have tasted for a long time and I cannot wait to return. Booking is a must as space is limited. The staff made us feel very welcome and were friendly throughout. I cannot recommend... More

Was expecting more. Food was fine although sparse and overpriced. The service was pompous. There are many far better restaurants in the area.

I've only been there a couple of times. Both times the food was good, but I found it over-priced for what it is. With many good restaurants nearby, I don't find it tempting enough to go regularly.
