“Always Busy!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

I recently called into The Arc for lunch, and every time I've called in it has been very busy. We managed to grab a table by the window and ordered a couple of drinks. We had a brief browse of the menu before deciding on what to order; between us we ordered a pizza and a burger. I had the Pulled pork burger with BBQ sauce and a side of chunky chips. The pulled port was delicious and the sauce was just right. I tried a bite of my partners Sloppy Cajun Chicken and that was very good too.
We were contemplating a desert as there were some great options, but the pizza and burger were more than a match!

“Reasonable Food Friendly Service”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Ate here recently food was reasonable a little greasy but it was a burger(well 3 small ones as per menu) we had friendly service and enjoyed the banter with the waitress however on occasion we found it difficult on not a very busy evening to get their attention when we required anything and the bill took an age to come.
Would go back just may order alternate dish but it's clean and food came pretty quick.

“the arc.... the word thats on every students mouth”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

where to start... the arc is a friendly and inviting eatery. I am a big fan of the ambiance and how the lights change throughout the night to create a crescendo of an atmosphere. the promotional offer of 2 for 1 cocktails is sure to get the pulses racing of many money stricken students and the food from around the world shows that they do not discriminate. all in all the arc provides an entertaining evening with the added excitement of the cushioned cave seating area.

“Was looking for a great burger, need to look again :(”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Went with a friend to have a couple of good burgers at the Arc. Had heard some good things, and the menu appeared to have a great selection.

The atmosphere was good for a lunchtime, was able to grab some good seats and plenty of viewing screens for the rugby.

The food arrived in good time, looked quite good but the burger itself was extremely dry. The chips were in a small portion in a trendy little bucket, and it was in no way worth paying a premium for their house special chunky chips.

It was better than your average fast food retailers, but way short of the gourmet burgers which are currently being served elsewhere in Leeds.

“Poor value but ok cocktails”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

Went to have dinner as on the tastecard website it is up as an available option but when arriving and ready to order we were told that they don't accept the card any more. Even though on the tastecard website there is a review from earlier this month. The beer is over priced (especially for this area when some pubs do it for more than half what the arc does) but the cocktails were ok. and on Thursday it was 241 so not bad.
