I've driven past this restaurant many times & finally visited it and wasn't disappointed. The atmosphere is cosy and intimate; the food is excellent and the service relaxed, friendly & informative. I will be back soon.

Myalacarte must have had a bad night when we visited. Some food served cold (pork scratching), some missing an ingredient (leek and potato soup, minus the leek) some exceptionally over cooked to the point of inedible (couldn't cut the potato rosti it was so well done) and swimming in oil, you couldn't compare it favourably to a McDonald's hash brown....

Title says it all. Great seasonal menu with a twist. Welcoming service. Relaxed atmosphere. Close to Caversham centre so no dedicated parking.

Had an absolutely wonderful meal here! The fillet beef is sublime. I would've licked my plate if I could!

I chose Myalacarte based on Tripadvisor reviews - and they did not let me down! On a Saturday evening the place was buzzing, and you clearly had to have made a reservation, with several folks being turned away at the door. The service was wonderful and friendly, and there were clearly several regulars in for the evening. The main thing... More

I have always driven past this restaurant and been intrigued to try it. I went for a Friday lunch for my husbands birthday and it was OK. We had the three courses for about 20 pounds which had a lovely selection of choices available. This was really well priced as most of the dishes on the a la carte menu... More

Having heard about Myalcarte I'd been meaning to go for a long time; I finally went there with a friend and certainly wasn't disappointed. We had two courses from the good value daily menu with 4 choices for each course. The food was all really tasty, cooked perfectly and lived up to the photos on the website - so often... More
