I have now been to the Arches Cafe Bar twice in the last 2 months. First time round was not bad - though I found the menu limited, my partner enjoyed himself and since we were heading to that end of town I thought I'd give it another go. Both times the only vegetarian choice on the pre-theatre menu was risotto. I find this very annoying as it shows a clear lack of effort in terms of providing an interesting non-meat main. In addition this time round the starter option was goats cheese and the risotto was broccoli and cheese! Neither was very special. Samey, boring and uninspired. Service this time was also dire. Food was slow to be served and staff were not attentive or friendly. In short, regardless of your dietary requirements, I'd swerve the Arches.
