Shockingly bad Mexican restaurant! Food average and staff beyond rude. Avoid like the plague....there are so many other amazing places to experience in Plymouth.

Arribas is very nice in terms of decor, atmosphere and customer service. Me and a friend came here a little while back and were attended to by a lovely lady who made us feel right at home and made us pitchers of delicious cocktails. Unfortunately the food was tasteless and heavy; i had a chimichanga which i suspect was reheated... More

Visited this restaurant while visiting Plymouth on business. The food was excellent and the portions where large. I had the 3 course meal for £15.95 between 5pm - 7pm and I couldn't even finish it I was so full and I didn't even get to the dessert. The quality of food was great, the staff where polite and efficient and... More

Great restaurant with a buzzing atmosphere. I had one of the best steak chilli-con-carne main courses I have eaten. Large portions, no fat or gristle and great flavour. Service was just as good. Forget the chain restaurants and go here.

Walked into this themed restaurant expecting the worst but was blown away by the service and quality of food here. Entered to an empty restaurant (well before six o clock the food rush) and was greeted by an incredibly friendly host/waitress who took our orders, no fuss and was more than attentive through out our meal. Even the chef who... More

Having lived in the South West of America for 15 years we love Tex-Mex style food and it's so hard to find here. As we were holidaying in the area we searched Trip Advisor for some good eating spots and this was one of the recommendations. We went mid week and took our 5 year old. It was very quiet... More
