I'll start by saying the previous review of this place on the 24th October couldn't be further from the truth. I was there on the same night and giving this place 1 out of 5 quite frankly smacks of a very malicious reviewer........ By the grace of God MyAlacarte saved the day by having a table for two available last... More

We can not believe that the recent reviews are a true assessment. We agree that the staff were friendly and the restaurant whilst clean was lacking in any imagination regarding décor. The food that we ordered was perfectly acceptable taste wise, but the portions were miserably small for the price charged. The lamb was such a small portion that to... More

Hello NW10 We are so sorry you didn't enjoy your experience at Mya Lacarte .... well, from the headline it suggests you hated it but then your review is somewhat contradictory and misleading. Even though you rated the food and service 4 out of 5, you go on to say you can't believe we are still in business?! So we... More

Absolute chaos between Paddington and Reading on the railway last Monday caused us to abandon our journey to Cornwall having only got as far as Reading, crammed like sardines in a train that went no further! Booked into a hotel and then, using advice on trip advisor, reserved a table at this restaurant. A taxi ride took us right to... More

A last minute booking for a Birthday party of 9 people last Saturday was a real treat. We were given the private room downstairs which is comfortable and intimate.....but you go for the food. We had the 3 course party menu...which I didn't think looked too exciting..WRONG. Maybe my expectations were low, but it was all fantastic and service was... More

I’ve lived in Caversham for over two years and only just got round to going here. Noticed that it’s always been very highly rated on Trip Advisor. We were given vouchers at Xmas and used them for this visit. Had the set menu which had four choices for each course. We just had a starter and main which was enough... More

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!
