I visited this restaurant on a Tuesday. The restaurant has no corkage on Tuesday so that was really a winning point. The bavette steak was excellent. Perfectly cooked, tender, juicy. Service was excellent as well. Definitely recommended.

I just went here for brunch in Balham. The starters were good, however the 'Steak Benedict' was extremely poor. It was to the point where it was unedible as I could not break down the food in my mouth and had to put it in...More

We were very exicted to finally go to Arlo’s, as pictures look very nice, but food had an strange teste. We don’t know yet if it was the meat (a little gummy), the cheese.. or maybe we had too higher expectation.

My partner and I both ordered the Bavette Benedict. There was a very generous amount of perfectly cooked steak, wonderful poached eggs, and delicious hollandaise. Great value at £10 considering the amount of steak. Service was very attentive.

I came here with my boyfriend as we live locally. Food was great, but a little bit on the pricey side for a meal for two. I remember bottles of wine being much pricier than expected, it would be good to have more of a...More

I went here yesterday with my dad who was visiting for work and we wanted to find a good dinner spot that didn't break the bank. Arlo's Monday deal is INCREDIBLE! Buy a side + a starter and you get a free bavette steak. What...More

The restaurant is quaint and and relatively small. The ambience is very relaxed and soothing. The food was remarkable. I had the Arlos special and was blown away. The fries on the side are worth the calories too!

Steak is what we do. We select the finest grass-fed beef from British native breeds and we seek out the interesting cuts, lesser-known steaks that would often find their way to the butcher’s table. We’re serious about steak, it’s our focus and our obsession – served quickly and simply.
