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

Food not great but ok for large amount of people. Food came out quickly but was pretty tasteless and too hot for a lot of our party.

Well laid out restaurant, good varied menu, excellent wait staff. Food of good quality and tasty. My Wife had the Arribas Chicken and I has the Chimichanga. Both were first class, although I felt the Chimichanga didn't need the Chips. Prices mid range and worth every penny.

Lovely atmosphere!!! The food we got was also nice..... However, I asked for a side order of wedges and I was told "we have none left"...... This basically means we buy them in frozen.... For £4 for a side order I expect a restaurant to have these freshly made!!! I can't believe they were saying a chef in the kitchen... 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
