As it was only just after opening time of 12pm on a Thursday lunchtime we were the first customers in. One or two more arrived after that but it was by no means busy unlike Milk and other coffee and brunch establishments nearby. Arlo's however...More

First time here for dinner, although this is a regular (and enjoyed) weekend brunch venue. We shared the 500g bavette steak, which came ready carved on a mound of skin-on fries. Sides were lovely mac & cheese, garlickly green beans, and caramelised pineapple which was...More

Lovely meal at Arlos, nice atmosphere and very cosy setting . Food and service was good, I asked for a medium steak but it came medium rare - this wasn’t an issue and was rectified immediately. A very pleasant evening!

Steaks were tender but, more importantly for me, tasty. Good range of sides. Good house malbec. Very friendly staff. I went to the Northcote Road branch. The alternative on that street, Macellaio, is better but at least twice the price so for special occasions only.

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.
