I’ve been in this resturant this evening and it was a disappointing experience. When my husband asked the waitress what does she recommend us, she showed him only the most expensive thing from each category :)) we ordered some of them and they were awful. Payed the price an run away hungrier than we came. We do not recommend.

This 2nd Act was badly put together by the visiting team. Every dish was too sour. Eating by hands is ok, but not for big portion dishes drenched in broth.
The menu state non-alcoholic pairing a flight of 5. Only 4 were served.
At the 1st course, the Arca team knew it was the wrong pairings. Yet he kept quiet & continued to introduce the combination as if nothing had happened. And when we pointed out the mistake, he pushed the B&BR team forward to us
Please be honest. You can’t do 1st pairing Green Garden here. Substitute. Or take it off the menu & revise price.
