Satiated the beast (at least for a while)

Arribas is a restaurant that I had never visited before, but went on the recommendation of an old work friend who likes their food hot, meaty, and usually cheesy (Just like me). Atmosphere was great, with décor and layout that would easily suit all types of meal from couples out together on a... read more

We went here for a friends 30th. We preordered food and the starters were soon their way out. Both the starter and the main were great. Was a great night. It was a little pricey for beer but kinda expected £4 for a pint of becks! All in all a good night :-)

If you like Mexican then well worth a visit here. Good decor inside and the owner is certainly trying hard. Food was good and the service was also of a good standard. We visited early evening so not to busy but if your with a group of friends later on I imagine it could be a great night out.

I visited with my husband on Saturday night and we had not booked at table. They were able to fit us in as it was earlier in the evening. We had Nachos to share and they were very tasty and our main courses were excellent. The staff were very pleasant and the atmosphere of the restaurant was lovely. We will... More

We went here for a family meal and all enjoyed what we ordered. The portions were all a good size and the quality was good. We shared a starter for 3 amongst 5 of us and that was fine. The service varied from ok to good, depending on who came to the table. The prices were probably 10-15% more than... More

We weren't looking for Michelin star but this was the pits. Our food came out instantly and my calamari starter had little to no flavour and were definitely frozen supermarket nibbles. Our mains were out very quickly too and also had no flavour. Our bill came to over £40, a ridiculous price for the quality of food we were served.... More

Lovely staff, friendly and efficient. The Restaurant is bright ,clean and welcoming. The food is reasonably priced and tasty , sometimes its better to order 2 starters ,than a starter and a main, due to quantity. I can recommend the combo,enjoyed the evening and the food and would recommend .

Overall, this was a very pleasant experience. We hadn't pre booked but told a time to return and the table was ready. Whilst the meals did seem a little overpriced the meals were good and filling. The place was packed and Sarah the manageress managed a very well run "ship".I would definitely return when in the area.
