Just your average restaurant. Its usually very quiet in here unless surrounding restaurants are booked up.
I had tapas, it was very dry and bland. Not an awful lot of flavour in any dishes. 1 dish was halloumi on ham or atleast thats what it tasted like. The ham tasted cheap and the cheese had no flavour. Was pretty much ham with some cheese on it for £4-5.

Service was good but wont be going back in a rush.

four of us went here after the cinema as TGI's was really busy. Im sorry i didn't wait at TGI's now!
no atmosphere in the place as no music. Waitress did not even smile and when she came to take our order just looked at us blanky as if to say ' yeh what?'
The starter arrived and it was the wrong item. That was changed when the correct item was preprared. did not check back to see if everything was now Ok or did we want anything else, when she came to clear the plates she leaned over the middle of the table and didnt even bother to walk around - wouldnt have minded but table was in middle of dining area with full access to each side! We had 2 starters of garlic prawns which I didnt expect a huge amount but thought we migh thave had more than 5.
Main courses arrived - 1 side order was once again wrong so we had to wait whilst the correct item. Menu said rosemary saute potates - we had bland soggy potatoes with no rosemary. salmon was good but 'roasted vegetables' were simply disgusting. I asked for a plate to take them off my main plate as the slimy grey appearance was spoiling the effect of the salmon whcih was the only decent thing on the plate! chicken chorizo looked like dog food and tasted like it had come from a cheap ready meal. The pizzas were said to be good but don't expect them to be very large! no-one came to ask us if everythig was ok and they were not exactly easy to flag down. When we came to pay I had to follow in the footsteps of my fellow diners and get up to attract the waitress's attention - poor.
In all the service was poor - there was a young lad in there doing his best but there was no visible management and i felt like the customers where getting in the way of all the closing up they seemed to be more interested in doing. One waitress had a shirt on branded from a local bar so perhaps she was in a hurry to get to another job!
The food here is garbage; i have had better school meals, it is way overpriced and the drinks are very expensive too.
give this place a wide berth - The only thing it had going for it apart from the pizzas is it seemed very clean.

Visited this restaurant on 31st december and it was very busy! Artorios' food is top notch, cant get any better and to those who say WETHERSPOON QUALITY PLEASE SHOW ME THESE WETHERSPOONS!! A female waitress was pretty crap however a particular waiter looked after us and was very apologetic for the wait but we understood due to how popular it was and the brilliant food we received.

WILL BE RETURNING MANY MANY TIMES AGAIN

Having lived in Spain for quite a few years, I'd say the quality of the tapas is generally similar to that you would find in any common-or-garden Spanish tapas bar. The main difference is in terms of value for money. Generally speaking, I feel that it is a bit overpriced for what it is - especially the drinks. On the plus side, the service could not be faulted!

Went here with 4 other people and enjoyed the meal albeit a bit rushed and very noisy in there.

Had decided to opt for a dessert the only one i could find without "nuts" and when to my surprise this arrived smothered in nuts, i did speak to the waitress and conveyed my disgust and how if i hadn't looked at the dessert before spooning it into my mouth that i could have had a bad reaction and there could be a corpse at the table she didn't seem all that bothered even after pointing the menu out to her - this is why i have given a terrible vote for this place
