Gorgeous, delicious food and friendly service. Can’t wait to go back after months of anticipating visiting. Would particularly recommend pork belly, lamb shoulder and nduja toast. Amazing.

We chose to go to Arbequina after a bit of research on TA as we love Spain & all Spanish food.
We were staying in city centre, so decided to walk & the restaurant was so busy, we thought we weren’t going to get in. We sat at the bar which turned out to be brilliant as we got to watch the chef, who is Spanish, & talk to him.
We ordered a selection of tapas which was so good, we ordered more. The chorizo was so tasty & the pork belly was so tender, we had more of both! The lamb was beautiful too. The croquettes were also very good.
We spoke to the chef about a speciality of Cádiz of “tortillitas de camerones” & he made us some sanlucar prawns as a surprise.
I noticed a lot of people on TA have said it was pricey, well we were very happy to pay the prices (didn’t seem too bad to us), as everything was first class.

It’s a shame we don’t live here to be able to come again.

Arbequina burst onto the Cowley Road scene a year or so ago, and has taken the place by storm. I have visited this restaurant with friends twice and on each occasion have loved it all: the food is great - small plates served tapas style -. the decor stylish, the soundtrack wonderful and the staff welcoming and helpful. Book a table today and be sure to order the aubergine dish, the cauliflower and the beetroot. You won't be disappointed...
