I have been going to Myalacarte for a few couple of years now and It has always been a pleasure, GREAT food, GREAT service. However recently I have noticed that the Manager/Owner Matt has not been working and because of this I think the restaurant has gone downhill. The Menu has not changed, and the service lacks charisma (you would... More

The restaurant was formerly a corner shop, so seats just a couple of dozen customers in close proximity. Floor to ceiling windows meant it was a just touch chilly on the cold night we visited, and with everybody talking it could be loud. There is a separate private dining area downstairs. The service was excellent and the food sublime: an... More

I love this place! We were celebrating my father in laws 70th and I am so glad that we came here. The atmosphere, food, wine, staff were all perfect! If you want to have a meal where you know you can't do better at home, experience different cuts, meats and ingredients there is no where better in Reading! Third visit... More

A gem of a restaurant for family celebrations. Friendly waiter. Delicious food. Good wine list. Set menus and a la carte. Their Christmas party menu is great - good selection of hearty winter food. Textures of chocolate dessert is the best chocolate dessert I've ever eaten. My son also said his pork belly was the best he'd ever eaten and... More

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
