Lovely food and outstanding service, always make you feel welcome. The owner is really nice and will advise you on different types of food. Good place to eat and try new food, especially as it's all halal food as it's difficult to find somewhere in town that does this. Must go and try you won't be disappointed.

I eat here regularly and always have excellent food, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Favourite dishes include the chicken tikka, chips, and the wonderful dips like tzatziki and houmous. Highly recommended.

Yet another cracking evening with Fouad & co. Food delicious, fabulous atmosphere (on a rainy Wednesday night) and the service, as always, excellent. This place never fails to please - just quality food & service time & time again...

Very nice food with my mum. We had falafel, lamb chops, chicken tikka with rice and a Greek salad. Washed down with some lovely house red wine. A bit expensive but worth it

We were a family group meeting up for lunch in the centre, this was handy, and we had some nice food. It didn't actually feel that Cypriot, to be honest (having lived there for many years, we know) but was ok. The waiters were great, and the food was plentiful. No complaints, just not remarkable.

Very rarely - maybe once a year - one is lucky enough to uncover a gem of an establishment which manages to get every element (food, service, décor, atmosphere, price) perfectly delivered and executed time and time again. Bar Meze is one of those places. The place has a wonderfully magical feel to it, open plan with a vaulted ceiling... More

Great 'family' atmosphere, the waiters were all very friendly as if we'd known them for years (it was our first visit!) and the food was excellent. More expensive than we'd normally pay, but worth the extra for the service and ambience.

“Dinner With Boo...” A couple of months ago my friend had his 50th birthday celebrations at this restaurant. I was impressed with the place, so last night I took my darling wife for dinner.

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.
