Square Meal Review of Almeida ?

A neighbourhood bistro of the best sort, Almeida attracts locals with its welcoming community spirit, unfussy outlook and surprisingly refined cooking. The namesake theatre opposite helps pull in the punters for great value pre/post-show deals, and the dining room exudes a contented hum. The food follows a broadly French route, but adds some contemporary touches along the way. If chilled gazpacho with Cornish mackerel escabeche isn’t Gallic enough for you, go for the ham and parsley-crusted frogs’ legs with roasted-garlic purée followed by peppered breast of duck with duck-fat potatoes. Excellent charcuterie and cheese trolleys add to the fun of it all, likewise the open kitchen and alfresco terrace, while sharp service keeps everything on track. The bar is a good local asset, too.
