Once I'd got over my irritation at not having my order taken, despite the fact that the restaurant was almost empty on a sunny August weekday, I was seriously impressed. The cooking is spot on. My starter of cured sea bass with avocado and green chilli gazpacho was gorgeous, completed with crisp potato and radish slices, it was a feast... More

We went several times to Almeida and we were never disapointed. The restaurant is located in a nice area, the food and presentation are dedicated. On top of that the service is outstanding.

Everyone now and again you have a memorable meal, where the chef has a licence to be brave. Our last meal at the Almeida was exactly that. At the risk of being pretentious, since Granita closed Upper St has had a load of great restaurants but none where you thought the food was exceptional. Almeida is almost up there with... More

Situated right across the road from the Almeida Theatre, this restaurant is perfect both if you are out for a shopping spree on Upper Street and wants somewhere to eat away from hustle and bustle, or of course if you are going to the Almeida,. For lunch they offer a nice set menu that is good value for money, but... More

Came here for a birthday lunch with friends. We all had the 3 course set menu, with the addition of bottomless prosecco for £15 extra. This was a really good deal. Food was not abundant but was of a very high standard, really enjoyed it. As we were there at lunchtime (while most people are in the theatre, so I... More

Islington is full of pleasant restaurants with food from all over the world. But if you want excellent modern British food and are visiting the Almeida theatre it's very hard to think of anywhere nicer than this restaurant of the same name. It's literally just across the road. If the weather is kind you can enjoy an aperitif al fresco.... More

Heard good things re Almeida, however our experience this afternoon on Father's Day was one I'd doubt we'd repeat. The service was very slow in a restaraunt that wasn't over busy, the staff were indifferent & were having to be prompted for service because of the long spell between each course. Orders were incomplete & had to be prompted. Some... More

I love the pre-theatre dinner menu here, it's good value and normally very tasty. Last night was the nearly the norm my Waldorf salad was tasty as was my piglet belly. My dining partner enjoyed her tomato salad, but was less impressed with chicken which she claimed to be brand. I tried the chicken it wasn't as nice as my... More
