Visited on a Sunday evening and it was busy. Staff were very pleasant and there was a good atmosphere. However, the food was hit and miss... some nice vegetarian dishes but lamb souvlaki was over cooked. I know it is St Albans, but felt it...More

We went on weekday evening. The environment was lovely and the atmosphere good. However there was a 'misunderstanding' about the number of set dips we ordered. It meant we paid a lot more than we expected. Then on top of that was a 20% service...More

I ate here for a work colleagues leaving lunch. (I selected "friends" rather than "business", as it is more appropriate to the lunch format.) The service was good. The food was tasty, and varied, and the dishes kept coming. All in all, an enjoyable meal.

Absurdly overpriced, slow, sullen service. Food comes whenever they like so my whole meal was basically done before others got theirs. Tiny portions of hummus, dips etc for the price. One small bowl of pitta for 4 portions of hummus (not enough). Extra is for...More

We have eaten here before and as expected we had a great Sunday lunchtime experience. The food and service were perfect and what we couldn't eat was carefully packed for us to take home and savour all over again.

Having eaten at Bar Meze a few times over the years I’ve always found the food to be good and the atmosphere to be very good. However the last couple of times I have been very disappointed. Very hurried, very cramped and food not great...More

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.
