The passion that goes into the food is incredible which is clear the moment it enters your pallet. I've eaten in thousands of restaurants all over and this is the first time I have gone out of my way to post a review. The food was out of this world. Service is friendly special, accommodating, homely nothing is too much... More

We went for a half year team celebration. There were 10 of us, we called ahead. The owner suggested we just go for the group menu. It was wonderful. Pitta with dips. Calamari. Halloumi. Salads, lots of glorious salads. Then the meat started coming. Tender, tasty, varied and plentiful. Despite being very full, we managed to share baklava, banoffie pie... More

I can't rate this place highly enough. As a vegan, finding choice is almost impossible. Not here! Great food and atmosphere. It was packed on a Tuesday night! Awesome food, great variety, excellent service. I will definitely go back there. So should you!

The owner, Nimatt, has been on the St. Albans restaurant scene for as long as we can remember. Being the character that he is, it was unsurprising that many of his clientele would visit him regularly in whatever restaurant he moved to next. After not seeing Nimatt for many years, we walked into Bar Meze and were greeted like he... More

Went for lunch here on Saturday after a stay at premier inn across from this restaurant. I love Greek food and any Meze style delights, but unfortunately this place was a major disappointment and very over priced. I ordered grilled chicken tikka - £8.50, this came as 5 small pieces of chicken with very little taste, sides were extra, so... More

4 of us went for dinner on Saturday night and sat outside. Good atmosphere, although I was glad we were outside as there was a very large birthday group inside. Everyone loved the food and a nice fuss made for the person who's birthday we were celebrating with cheesecake and singing.

The service is good and atmosphere lively on a Friday night as normal. But we ordered 3 veggie and 3 meat set menus and rather than think outside the box and mix up the food so we could all try something different they served precisely the same food to all of us. Whereas before as a veggie I'd had Spinokapita,... More

When we got there we were told card machine was not working so we would have to walk to cash point to get money out, not a massive issue as a business owner myself I know how these tend to play up often. We were then told they didn't have bottles of water so had to have a different drink...water... More

Having often ordered Bar Meze from their stall at various St Albans street festivals we finally decided to visit the restaurant. We had booked but were kept waiting for a while which was slightly frustrating but the service and attention even when waiting was second to none. The food was delicious and arrived promptly, the music and atmosphere was fun... More

Our first visit to bar Meze and we were not disappointed. Delicious food and very attentive service. However we visited on a Saturday night and the restaurant was packed and it was very noisy, so not a good place to go if you want to hear your companions and have meaningful conversations! If we return I think we will go... More

Description
Nimatt's Bar Meze in St Albans serves the native cuisine of Cyprus - the historic meeting place of Europe and Asia. The dishes have Greek, Ottoman and Arabic influences resulting in a unique blend. The company motto "Eat, Drink, Share" pays reference to the Eastern Mediterranean way of eating, that is both healthy and fun. There are no set starters or main courses, and you can order a snack or a main meal simply by varying the number of dishes chosen. Our meat, fish and vegetables are bought direct from the relevant markets. The dips and the majority of the prepared food items are freshly made in our own preparation kitchen to exclusive Bar Meze recipes.
