Have visited 3 times now and really pleased that I've found this little Gem. Love their flatbread pizzas, lots of topping & are light. Staff are polite and attentive without hassling you. Place seems to be run by youngsters and they do a fantastic job. Keep it up.

We have given this establishment several tries and each time despaired of the amateurish inability to put the customer first. The first occasion was a on a night when only pizza and beer was on the menu..... unless you were the friends of the waiter on the adjacent table, On the second occasion, Friday ' Steak Night', despite having arrived...

Visited with great expectations as it looked nice but on arrival what a dissapointment. Sat sipping our very expensive drinks browsing the very limited menu we were shocked at the prices. £10 for a ham and cheese toastie???? Needless to say but we left soon after without eating. Extortionate even for cowbridge and in a poor location on the main... More

Wife and I stopped at Cowbridge for a quite browse and stopped here for a coffee. Loved the decor and feel of the cafe/restuarant so much so that we returned 2 hours later for a spot of lunch. We had the soup and Croque Monsieur which were both delicious and the service was first rate. Will without doubt return when... More

I never really bring myself to use trip advisor to report on whether a restaurant is great or not but I really felt I had to make the effort this time. What a great night me and my wife had last sat evening. After hearing a lot of positive feedback from friends we finally decided to make the visit. Even... More

We were travelling back from Cardiff; midday Sunday; feeling hungry - horror of horrors, it's "Sunday Lunch"! You know what I mean - micro-sliced bits of something that might once have been roast meat, served with over-microwaved vegetables. Enough to keep you at home at the weekends. But then Trip Advisor came to the rescue by telling us about Arboreal.... More

We first visited Arboreal a few months ago. Although the decor is great, my husband and I weren't overly impressed. You can see what the management are trying to achieve through sourcing quality ingredients and creating original dishes but it just doesn't hit the mark. Despite our mediocre experience, we decided to give them a second chance and revisited on... More
