Bar Meze Bar Meze

Bar Mezé just off the top end of St Peters Street in St Albans serves the native cuisine of Cyprus. The dishes have Greek, Ottoman and Arabic influences resulting in a unique blend. Their motto of 'Eat, Drink, Share' means that 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. The restaurant uses fish and meat from well-known London markets. An ideal place for a relaxing lunch, Bar Meze is lively with a great atmosphere in the evenings, particularly on Friday and Saturday nights. Booking is recommended. (Note: toilets are upstairs in the restaurant).

Nice food table bit small - review by arden1000
Food and the wine here are great and the service was pretty good too.. Could have done with a slightly bigger table, old fashioned trick of putting everyone in the window to try and make it look full is not really necessary. [Apr 12] 09 Apr 12

Friendly staff and delicious food - review by heavenisacupcake

I love Bar Meze! The food is delicious and the staff are so friendly and welcoming. They always go out of their way to accommodate you. It does get busy but the atmosphere is fab. Will definitely be back again and again. [Nov 11]

Great Service - review by karie
The service at Bar Meze is amazing! You are treated as an individual, and the staff, whilst being attentive, is not pushy! If you like aubergine, the aubergine dip is a step up from normal houmous. It's gorgeous. Also, try the grilled prawns and the deep fried calamari. You won't be disappointed. One thing, if you're booking for a large party or for peak times, book in advance! [Jan 11]

Never again - review by nickandsue
We booked a table for 10 at 9.00. Arrived to find a table for 8 with two extra chairs squeezed on the end. Waited 40 mins hour for our first drinks then had to chase waiters 4 times to place food order. Ate main course at 11.00 and had to continually beg for more pitta bread for the Mezzae-I basket between 10 doesnt work ! Felt like Oliver asking for more ! The food arrived in dribs and drabs, was poorly presented, poor quality. Finally finished at 12.00 ! Dreadful--we rarely complain but this was an exceptionally bad restaurant experience. Not to be recommended! [Jan 11]

Relaxing evening - review by bwbw

We recently had a very nice evening here after being reminded of it's existence from the new booking system on this website. I think it's under new management and I can certainly say the service was excellent, very attentive and pleasant. The food was good too and there was a lot of variety. The special offer also made it a billy bargain, but it's good value food anyway. We'll go back for sure. [Nov 09]

tarama-tastic - review by rnk

We popped in here for a pit(ta) stop on a Saturday lunchtime, and loved it. The service was extremely (and genuinely) friendly, and the food was first class. We had a plate of kalamari and mezetakia for two (a range of cold dishes). Highlights included the houmous, an aubergine dip, and a taramasalata that was lighter, creamier and way more delicious than the bright pink stuff you get in supermarkets. And as for the home-made blueberry cheesecake - divine. [Oct 09]

Fabulous atmosphere, great food - review by oilivin snorbens

Oh, how I adore Nimatt's Bar Meze. It has such a friendly atmosphere, lovely staff and a mouth-watering Greek menu. The Brunette, a confirmed if not militant veggie, and our vegetarian kiddies, love it - fresh, warm pitta bread, houmous, roasted red peppers, aubergine dip, marinated broad beans, crispy home-made falafels, rustic chips. While they're tucking into all of that, I can clandestinely nibble on beautifully barbecued keftedes and souvlakia. We keep going back: what better recommendation can there be than that? [Oct 09]

great for lunch too - review by localgirl

I took my Mum and daughter for mid-week lunch and received a very warm welcome and great service. The meze was fresh and tasty, and great value for the three of us. I loved the swordfish skewer I had. We always seem to order too much. Interior is attractive, exposed brick and beams, and very light. Evenings are lively, with lots of cheap wine being drunk!

Fantastic Night! - review by jk

Visited the restaurant with my partner and thoroughly enjoyed 'The Meze' with endless dishes and loads of different flavours!!! (It was also nice to have a number of healthy options to choose from). The atmosphere and service was great and we really enjoyed the music. A warm and friendly restaurant - we will definitely be back! [Nov 08]

Lively! - review by south-sider

Took the elderly in-laws to Bar Meze on a Friday night - thinking that its tucked away location at the top end of St Peters St would make for a quiet meal. We were wrong. The place was packed and (our waitress cheerfully admitted) double booked with people standing waiting for tables. Despite the crush and the noise level (we gave up shouting to our guests), we had a fun time - thanks to the lively atmosphere, fast and friendly service and good food. [Oct 08]
