Excellent anniversary meal

Friendly, relaxed service and a tasty very well presented 2 course lunch for £14.95. I recommend the goats cheese tart starter and fish/puy lentils for main. My wife enjoyed the ham hock starter/steak main and her gluten-free requirements were well catered for. The only negative point is that some... read more

We haven't been to Myalacarte since just after it opened 8 years ago, and decided to give it a second try for my wife's birthday. Our expectations were met and exceeded on every level. Service was friendly but hands-off, and the food was delicious. It's a small room, which keeps things intimate and means you can always snag your waitstaff... More

Went here for a meal with my husband on a recommendation from a friend. I enjoyed my meal very much. The food was delicious and nicely presented. There isn't a large selection of dishes to choose from but is on offer is brilliantly executed. The service was friendly without being intrusive. The only thing which stopped this being exceptional was... More

Being there for business I was totally pleased by the very friendly and discrete service, amazing food and excellent price options. Very quiet and nice is great for a personal meeting as well as for a business dinner or a friendly catch up. I would define their style as modern British where ancient receipts and flavors are revisited with modern... More

We were looking forward to trying this place as it offers something a little more personal. Also - read the website beforehand and liked its variable, seasonal menu and its commitment to the environment and the use of local produce. Booked for 6pm before it gets too busy and while it's still possible to hold a reasonable conversation. This was... More

I ate here with some colleagues. I have visited before and sometimes the quality drops but not here. The food was great especially the starters which would not be out of place on a London Fine Dining Restaurant. Would recommend and will return.

Just the two of us as little one was away. Saturday evening at 7:00 so we expected it to be busy - as it was the last time. The dining room is in an old shop. It feels like it. Acoustics are "boomy" so if (as was the case here) there are two or three large tables it's VERY noisy.... More

Excellent restaurant. Delicious innovative food with very friendly service. You do need to book well in advance as it's very popular. If you are going there to celebrate a special event, let them know when you make the booking and you'll get a delicious surprise at the end of your meal! Highly recommended.
