I wasn’t able to join the party due to Covid. The girl who took my phone call to change the booking was very helpful and understanding. My children report that the food was fabulous.

If you are thinking about going there: DON’T GO!
Absolute fail.
We ordered 3 paellas, which you have to wait 30mn+ to obtain, and after waiting that long and eating 3 pieces of bread (that they bring without asking you and which cost £20), they brought one wrong paella, resulting in us needing to wait for another 30mn……..
A nightmare of a night, especially when the bill comes at the end
Cocktails were bad too
But waiters and decor were great!! Nice people and very well decorated place. It’s a shame.

The restaurant is too opulent and doesn’t reflect the Spanish food’s soul.
The cheesecake could improve.
Paella was 10/10.
Beef cheek was 10/10.
Ceviche 10/10.

I love Paella so was keen to try this place out. It's pretty high end so everything is expensive. Had lamb chops and aubergine for starters, both delicious. I have a fish paella for the main. It tastes really good but all you get is a fairly small plate of rice. The dish when presented looks grand, but it's a very very thin layer of rice (which is very tasty). I guess I'm used to Paella's in Spain where the portions are a lot bigger and the amount of seafood is a lot more generous.

This is the second time that we visit the restaurant and the paellas were really really good. Real valencian’s paella. However, I felt that the portions of paella are very small for the price that we paid, so I think that’s something that they should improve.

The Paella was very very dry and had no taste at all. Very disappointed. Also very overpriced for what you eat. We paid £50 per person without alcohol.

Wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for a delicious meal. The ambiance and drinks are lovely, but the food is average.
Also if you are worried about Covid, this is not the best choice for you. Although technically the restaurant put 1 meter between tables, that is definitely not the case with the chairs. In fact, my back was touching a guest at another table. So no social distancing what so ever. However, the service was great and when I told them my concern, they moved me to a different table.

The food is ok, but what you get for what you pay is just ridiculous. Come on, it’s rice...
Also, the mark-up on the wine list should be considered a crime. Very poor wine list with barely any interesting Spanish wines.
Avoid! You can get more for the price you pay.

Disappointed! Booked for a special evening with my partner and regretted it soon as we walked in.
No one on reception when entered the restaurant, had to wait to be seen because staff seem to be all over the place.
Was taken upstairs to a table that was next to a noisy group of people, waiter interrupted way too many times when looking at the menu to take our order.
Starters was cold, paella was burnt and cold, dessert was pointless as the ice cream was melted.
We had to ask for the bill 3 times and waited around 20 mins for the change.
Women’s toilets were unbelievably disgusting and unhygienic.
We left feeling hungry and disappointed!
For the price, definitely not worth the food and service.

The ‘Taste of Arros’ menu online and on the direct website is very different to the one offered in the restaurant. What is advertised as great value menu is actually really rather poor (one ‘cheese stone’, small chicken skewer, half kale salad and paella for £23) having removed a starter, wine and tea/coffee from the offering. We ‘replaced’ the missing starter with one from the a la carte menu, the delicious beef cheek at an offensively priced £17. The food is good but it’s not that good.
