Whenever we are back in the UK for the summer we always visit one of of our perennial favourites that, besides being local to us, never lets us down. Owner Mathew knows how to consistently please his customers such that he has justifiably achieved TripAdvisor’s number one in Reading. The balance that he has struck with affordability combined with being... More

When we go to a restaurant we expect food that is better than what we can prepare ourselves. We often eat out on our frequent trips to Europe plus we consider ourselves decent cooks not intimidated by the likes of French bouef bourguignone or guardian de taureau, Belgian stoverij, or Greek lamb kleftiko. Therefore, we can tell a REAL restaurant... More

Hidden on the road out of Caversham to Henley is one the best kept secrets for lovers of fine dining. We have visited several times and always impeccable, with friendly caring service and absolutely perfect food always freshly prepared from the very best local ingredients. Look forward to our next visit.

If you're in Reading, UK and have not eaten at Myalacarte, then why haven't you? The food was excellent and innovative (Nouvelle British?), the waiters were highly attentive, and the table by the window where we sat was lovely. The cost was very reasonable.

The food and service is excellent and I love the way they always ask if it is a special occasion when you book the table - and if so you get decorated plate with chocolate and all complimentary - lovely touch!

Went here with friends none of us had been before. Pleasantly surprised at the slightly different but good menu. Smoked haddock cheesecake was a very interesting starter. The beef was soooo tender and the baked Alaska was fab. A great restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere and very tasty well cooked food.

We recently visited Myalacarte for a colleague's leaving do and we would definitely return. It was just the right mix of smart, alternative and organic dishes with also a relaxed and welcoming feel. Their dedication to using seasonal produce made for some unique and tasty meals.

We have been eating here for years and have celebrated many family events at this lovely, relaxed local restaurant. We returned yesterday - now with our grown up son and his girlfriend- and enjoyed a great lunch. Don't be fooled by the casual vibe, the food here is seriously good. My wild mushroom ravioli starter was exquisite! The menu offers... More
