I came to the restaurant with my boyfriend cause my parents really talked highly about it (they were there on a vacation in June). We ordered sea food plate that had shrimps, fish and squids. It was absolutely wonderful. The waiter recommended us flambe pancakes, which I was a bit skeptical about, but they turned out to be the best... More

This restaurant used to be known for delicious Mexican cuisine. Last night my wife and I visited with great expectations, only to get disappointed. The welcoming waiter (no hosts there) was very friendly and seated us promptly, offering a menu that matched our spoken language. Mexican food wasn't offered there so they provided with a Mexican-only menu upon inquiry. We... More

This was my second visit to Arkada. I are here last year and enjoyed it so much so recommended it to my friends this year. The food is gorgeous. It is a fine dining restaurant but the portions are huge. The food is all cooked freshly to order and not one person in our group had the slightest complaint. My... More

The food is good at Arkada. Nothing too special, just normal food. I would recommend the deserts, mainly the key lime pie.

We visited the Arkada twice while we stayed at The Hotel Eden. Having found it the first time and enjoyed it , we returned later in the week. It is a bit off putting to climb the steps but both inside and outside eating areas are lovely. We tried both as it was so warm the first night! My partner... More

I had one of the best meals ever in this restaurant. The concierge from hotel Lav recommended it to my husband and me and we gave him a good tip for it. My husband ordered a beef steak on rucola, which was perfectly cooked and tasty and it was melting in his mouth (and mine, since I've stolen from his... More
