The setting of the Arnos Vale Waterwheel Resteraunt is amazing... lush, tropical scenery surrounding an old sugar distillary.
The resteraunt itself, is lacking. We (a group of 6) had a 7:00 reservation. We arrived right on time and were promptly seated. At that time, there was only one other party of two people in the entire place. We ordered some drinks, which were brought to us within a few minutes. Soon after, we order appetizers and entrees. The wait for the appetizers was a bit longer than expected, but not too terrible. However it took 2 HOURS to receive our entrees! 2 HOURS!
By the time were left, the original party of two had finished eating and left, and two other parties had arrived. They were not busy enough to substantiate a 2 hour wait for the entrees.
The service was also very poor. It was very tough to get ahold of our waitress, and she never stopped back at the table to see if we needed anything.
Additionally, the food was overpriced and the portions were very small, although what we did receive was tasty.
Furthermore, the music was too loud and too obtrusive (house music, aka. pounding trance/dance beats) and it was the same cd playing over and over. I left with a headache.
Overall, I would not recommend Arnos Vale Waterwheel, nor would I return. The food was good, but small portions and overpriced. Poor service and loud music. They need a lot of work...
