Great atmosphere, service and food. Even the fussy in laws enjoyed it. Lots of variety and good advise from our waiter about what to order.

Excellent choice for vegetarians, all the dishes we had were delicious, especially the naughty haloumi chips - wow! I think the baklava we had for dessert was the nicest I've ever tasted, ever. The ambience was really nice; the *background* music really put you in the mood; staff were friendly and attentive but not overbearing. The cost overall was not... More

We have been here before and loved it- it was just as good the second time around. The food portions are huge and therefore it is difficult to finish but it's so delicious it's easy to over eat! The veggie options are great.

My 9yo son wanted to celebrate his birthday with the family in a Greek restaurant. We've eaten at Bar Meze several times over the years and it never disappoints. The food was great - particularly the tagine, which we'd never tried before. My son also enjoyed having "Happy Birthday" sung to him too. Staff were friendly and the food arrived... More

We visited with friends last night and were quite disappointed with everything really considering the rave reviews. It's too crowded, some people were sharing other people's tables and the staff struggled to get through. The main guy was friendly telling us about the 'fantastic' fresh prawns, sea bass but then when we didn't order those particular things we never saw... More

I have eaten in a number of Greek/Turkish restaurants and, in my view, this serves the best food. Everything tasted home made and of very high quality. We shared meat and vegetarian mezze and all of the dishes were delicious. Of particular note was the swordfish, falafel, the grilled meats and the vegetarian moussaka. The owner is charming and the... More

For me, and I must reiterate that this is just my personal preference because I know a lot of people have raved about the service, I found the staff to be a little too over-familiar and tactile (the manager stood behind me and put his hands on my shoulders on two occasions). The whole experience is a little hectic and... More

Had a great meal tonight at Bar Meze, hadn't booked so we were lucky to get in as it was very busy. All the food was amazing and made you feel like you were in holiday !! The staff were all very attentive and made us feel valued as customers. Will be back soon as possible !!

On a date with my girlfriend on a Sunday, the place wasn't too busy and service was excellent. My girlfriend is vegan and there were plenty of options for her. We also loved the idea of sharing many smaller dishes, it meant trying more dishes (and having more food.) would definitely recommend to a friend.

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.
