We really enjoyed our visit to Arbenning. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. The beetroot salad was delicious as was the crispy lamb. It was a very hot evening but the temperature inside was fine. The stairs are very steep.

    Lovely cosy atmosphere. Second time here and it will become our regular when I'm in Cardiff. The octopus was quite chewy but good flavour. The bone in steak was one of the best I've eaten. Staff are lovely and friendly. After requesting the bill there was quite a long wait before table was cleared and the bill presented. Overall good food, good atmosphere, good staff. Thank you for another lovely evening.

    Incredible food at arbenning I went with wife and two of our friends for my birthday and had such a great time, I spend a fair bit of time staying in some of the worlds top hotels and this is up there with some of the best food I've eaten. Fresh ingredients, great cooking. Great atmosphere, background music well chosen and not too loud. Really friendly staff. Can't wait to come back again.

    Sophisticated and relaxed. A pretty little garden and comfortable seating area for pre-dinner drinks. The duck was cooked perfectly but the single vegetarian main was slightly disappointing as there was very little of it and the flavours did not work together (for me, at least).
    The focaccia was soft and buttery but not at all greasy, and the quality of all the ingredients was clearly very high.

    I went to Arbennig for my birthday and it was the first time my partner and I had dined at this restaurant. Unfortunately our experience was not great. My partner's macaroni cheese was runny and didn't have the crispy topping that you'd expect it to have. I had the chicken roast dinner and the amount of chicken on the plate was very small indeed - it was mostly vegetables. The Yorkshire pudding was overcooked and dry. We ordered dessert and it seemed to take ages to arrive and when it did they forgot the honeycomb pieces.

    On the plus side the carrots and swede were cooked very well and when they did eventually bring the dessert, there was a lighted candle in it which I thought was sweet of them to do.

    Food was delicious, service friendly but a little slow, especially when it came to the first drinks of the evening. The chips were amazing! I'd definitely go back.
