Although I had read several poor reviews on here prior to booking, I decided to give Arta a try seeing as I have been in for drinks before and there always seems to be a good atmosphere. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. To start with, one of the dishes we ordered had run out (I realise this can't be helped however we were not told about this until 20 minutes after we had ordered) After choosing another dish we then waited over an hour for our food to arrive, which is ridiculous for any restaurant but especially a tapas restaurant. Furthermore, the restaurant at this time had quietened down. We were given no apologies or excuses for our long wait and when the food eventually arrived half of the dishes were missing and several others were dishes that we hadn't even ordered! After yet again more waiting we had to ask another waitress for our missing tapas dish. The food itself was ok, nothing outstanding. The manager who eventually approached us did apologise for the delays and mix up and offered us desserts on the house which was appreciated. My advice would be to keep Arta in mind for a nice drink but avoid the restaurant.
