My sister is in hospital and we have been coming for lunch for the last week around 3-4 times. The food is really good (I am Spanish) and the service is great. Will definitely recommend you ordering the croquetas de jamón, pulpo a la gallega y huevos rotos.

This place was excellent. We went as a family, with a 9 and a 3 year old and was welcomed with open arms. The food was superb, extremely tasty and well presented. We all loved it and the staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was clean and the ambience was ideal. We would definitely go back if in the area.

There was absolutely no one in the restaurant and NO AIR CONDITIONING. The service was ok and the food was average. There are much better tapas restaurants in London.

The staff were friendly and pleasant and the food was excellent. The only reason for four stars for service was because towards the end when we were wanting to order desserts/get the bill, it took a little too long and we felt slightly forgotten but, to be fair, it was getting very busy.

The food was good apart from the anchovies with strawberries. That should not be on the menu in any restaurant, ever. The menu I felt was a little lacking in variety. I can say the best dish we’ve had were the ham and cheese croquettes, light and fluffy! Would have ordered another portion if I had more space.

Had an excellent meal with a very good selection of dishes on offer.

As we were a group of 6 with different tastes we tried a variety of dishes.

Staff helpful and attentive.

Would definitely go back for more....

Nice setting, romantic/cosy indoor space. Service was alright. Some of the food we ordered was only lukewarm/cold (when I expected it to be hot). And felt overpriced. Glad I tried the restaurant, but wouldn’t go back again or recommend.

Arbina was very close to our rented apartment. Service is amazing as well as the food and drinks - a pinch of Spain in London.

The atmosphere was nice although quiet, and disappointed that despite being one of only 2 tables there our bill was incorrect twice and almost overpaid by almost double the bill. This seemed difficult to believe as a mistake. The service was friendly and food was fine-good. Was a little squashed at the table in order to be put in the window, presumably to look more busy! The rest of the tables looked comfy though.
All in all fine experience.

excellent Spanish food, great 'ensaladilla' and perfect 'cocido', we ended with a delicoius soft cheese cake, maybe the coffee would be better.

High quality food perfectly cooked, authentic Spanish flavours

A great little Spanish restaurant in Whitfield Street, Futzrovia, in the shadow of the BT tower. Very friendly and attentive staff, a wide Tapas menu and changing daily specials. A good wine list and nice modern/traditional setting. Average price £35_40 a head, service included.

Fantastic tapas bar, we thoroughly enjoyed the spicy octopus, garlic prawns, seafood paella and patatas bravas. The wine was fantastic, great selection by the glass. And to top, a great selection of gluten free desserts!! Would definitely go back!
