We held our annual club netball presentation night at Arribas recently, the food was delicious, staff very welcoming and helpful nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend Arribas for private functions.

Having come back from Mexico less than three weeks ago, I thought I would try this restaurant. I know it's a Monday, but why so empty? I had the meatballs followed by chicken fajitas. OMG they tasted even better than in Mexico. Come on people you need to visit this restaurant, the food was great. All accompanied by proper Mexican... More

We've ate at Arribas lots of times over the past few years, always liked it there- last night so disappointed by the food- the enchiladas tasted and looked microwaved, it came with about 8 French fries, my wife's chimichanga was undercooked- waited 45 minutes to be served this- politely gave feedback to staff when paying the bill. Is the owner... More

I eat in Arribas most weeks. Food is superb, big menu, big portions at good prices. Good beer wine and cocktail selection. Really friendly staff and Chris, the owner is usually there to make you feel welcome. They always help with special requests... A bit hotter, less spice, can I get a doggy bag etc. Couldn't recommend more!

Visited on a Thursday evening and was surprised to find we were the only ones in the restaurant. Service was very friendly and efficient. Food was of a very good standard and plentiful. The combo starters are huge. I had the steak chilli for main course which was also good. I would visit again.

This spacious restaurant near Plymouth town centre offers good quality food for a reasonable price. Portions are really big, so you need to enter with a certain appetite in order to be able to eat both starters and main course. I had various grilled meat, which was very good and some tasty nachos, that I would recommend. The place is... More
