Visited last Thursday as we were heading to the open air cinema in Caversham Court Gardens and wanted some great food before. Booked here, got told by friends in Reading how good it is and it didnt disappoint! Food excellent flavours. Staff attentive, genuine and interested. Highly recommend.

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

I had an early evening meal here with friends, so we sampled the set menu which is served until 7pm. The food was really good and nicely presented and the portions were generous. The crayfish starter was excellent and the fish of the day was equally good. i have to say that the service was exceptionally good and we look... More

If that was me serving you, I will pat myself on the back, but it's more likely to be another member of staff as Im a bit grumpy! Of course, Im joking; in all seriousness, we all thank you... More

Went to this restaurant last Saturday 14th June, the food was excellent, the presentation of the food was excellent, for example my braised chicken starter had the braised chicken inside a baked tomato and tasted great, will definitely go there again, service was also excellent, would recommend this restaurant highly.
