“Excellent Staff and Food”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

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.

“Great food, great staff.”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Visited a couple of times now and as per the last time the food was extremely tast, well proportioned and tasty seasonal fayre. The staff are very friendly and attentive and have mastered the art of gauging when you need to order.

The restaurant itself has a really nice ambience and is conveniently located in Caversham, with parking either behind the Weatherspoons Pub or in the Waitrose car park. A great place to eat.

“Well-deserved high recommendations”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

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 order or eat in any way; and the food was plentiful and l beautiful, in both presentation and taste.

Some lovely extra touches we all commented on: when my sister made the booking she was asked if it was for a special occasion - it was a birthday, and they greeted mum with 'happy birthday' when we entered, brought out a simple but elegant decorated 'happy birthday' written in chocolate with a little treat at the end of the meal; a jug of free tap water was immediately placed on the table after we were seated.

Will be returning and recommending myself!

Hi Sian

It's always a bit nervy when expectations are set high but when met, we feel extremely pleased. And of course we aim to meet these expectations on a daily basis so we are thrilled with your review. The little touches are our pleasure, as we consider everyone's birthday to be a very special occasion. We are honoured that you choose Mya Lacarte to celebrate on this occasion, and really do hope that you visit again soon.

All the very best and thanks once again

Love the Mya Team xXx

“Great Neighborhood Restaurant for Foodies!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

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 poached egg appetizer - was equally sublime! The selection of mini puddings "desert treats" were fabulous. All in all an excellent meal. Can't wait to return!
