Almeida brings a French dash of elegance, style and sophistication to the London neighbourhood of Islington. Although the unmistakeably Anglo-sounding Alan Jones is the head chef, the menu is 100% French, delivering some of the finest French fancies to this side of the Channel.

Laid back, brightly furnished and utterly sophisticated throughout, the ambience inside Almeida is a haven that juxtaposes starkly and favourably with the bustling streets outside. Here, diners can relax and enjoy a long lunch, unwind in the evening with a glass of fine French wine and a plate of nibbles from the bar menu, or simply impress a loved one with a romantic meal for two.

The food focus favoured by head chef Jones is simple and seasonal, with steamed, poached and sautéed techniques employed on a number of dishes. These methods allow the subtle flavours of the fresh ingredients to seep through at the required pace, culminating in rich flavours that linger on the palate and spread a smile across the face.

Ideal for pre or post-theatre meals, Almeida is making a name for itself thanks to its exceptional service, charming atmosphere, memorably subtle dishes, acclaimed wine list and unbeatable location.

Opening times: Monday - Saturday: 17:30 - 22:30, Tuesday - Sunday: 12:00 - 14:15 (Sunday, 15:00)


30 Almeida Street, Islington, N1 1AD
