    The food was delicious, I had the stir fry. Churros were crowd pleasers. The service was very friendly and helpful. A bit cold inside with the door open in June. Would go there again for sure.

    My son described it as an empty room with a kitchen attached. It sadly lacked ambiance and the service was pallid. It was too brightly lit, had insufficient heating to take your coat off and the bill was just shy of $300 for 4 people and only one had alcohol… we shared 2 entrees and 2 desserts, plus mains each. The food was interesting and edible, thank goodness! Some mood lighting and a cosy atmosphere would have elevated the experience considerably. We gave them feedback re the lights on the night which was ignored.

    Our second visit, this time for lunch Once again the food was fantastic Unfortunately the overall dining experience wasn’t the best The young lady who served us made a mistake with the drinks and then argued that Chardonnay was a red wine! Something that really annoys me is the use of the word ‘youse’ it sounds so unprofessional Finally cocktail napkins? Totally inadequate for the purpose We will be back and really want to support the venture

    Dreadful meal, it was inedible, cold fettuccine with tough dry overcooked steak, we left without my husband eating it and dined elsewhere, took wait staff too long to ask if we wanted a drink, we actually had to ask them, we won't return

    Arturo’s Latin CuisineResponded on May 2, 2022

    If it was my business I would be getting rid of the young waitress. Her attitude was abrupt and disappointing throughout the evening, even to the point with bringing the bill to the table before giving us the opportunity to order another wine, coffee or dessert. The food was delicious, it was disappointing the waitress screwed up the order of the dishes; we got the main meals before the entrees. We understand a new business comes with it challenges and we will visit again with the hope there will be better table service. The food was delicious.

    Thankyou for your feedbaack, we take all feedback into account, while we understand your experience was not as expected we are working very hard to train our staff making sure our customer service delivers with our great food. We do not support rude behaviour by our employees as we take this very serious to our reputation. We look forward to having you visit us once again and making sure your experience will be one as expected

    What a gem. We tried Arturo’s last night. It has been open six weeks, but has no obvious teething issues. Staff were a delight, a little inexperienced but made up by their caring and friendly manner. They are an asset, and a credit to their employer. Ambiance good, unfussy, and service quick and friendly. Food was excellent, and very varied, but all in the Latin tradition. All hot, with interesting sauces. No chilli dishes, but that is just a personal like. Overall, from a very knowledgeable critic, highly recommended.

    First time eating at Arturos, the staff were attentive and welcoming upon arrival, explained the menu if we were unsure, I ordered the steak and was not disappointed. Cooked perfectly. The portions are small to medium, the flavours are amazing, great to have something different in our area to try. Highly recommend 👌
