Definitely one of the best meals out for a long time - food was amazing, great atmosphere and Merlin was amazing. We left it to him to bring us a selection of tapas for our party of 8 and he brought us one amazing dish after another, all with great service, enthusiasm and character. Thanks for a great evening!

Cosy, lively and friendly. Excellent food and wine served up by the incredible Merlin who chose the dishes for us.

As a staunch supporter of Oli's Thai we visited Arbequina with a degree of trepidation! Could the magic be replicated in a different venue, with a very different cuisine and style?
We need not have worried ...Wow ...they know how to produce an enticing menu...tapas with a twist. So tasty, so many mouthwatering dishes to choose from, we couldn't quite manage all of them !
Everything cooked to order and served with real customer friendly enthusiasm........we have already booked again and will be regular customers. our dilemma is now do we go to Arbequina or Oli's ...what the hell we'll go to both!

The place is rather small so gets crowded quickly. And I totally understand why. The food is delicious and the wine is great. Will definitely come again.
