Chef Quique Dacosta has been heavily awarded by the tyre men for his two restaurants in Spain (Quique Dacosta in Denia and El Poblet in Valencia), and has been heralded with arriving in the UK since late 2017 with backing from the Iberica chain. Originally called InPaella, the main offering of this project, which finally opened in June 2019, is paella, and it will be anything but ordinary.
Harden's survey result
“A fantastic paella” is the signature dish at Quique Dacosta’s very well-publicised (well, he does have three Michelin stars back in Alicante) two-floor, Spanish newcomer, which opened in June 2019: too late to receive a huge volume of survey feedback (so the ratings should be seen as indicative). Such as we have is brimming with enthusiasm all-round, both for results from the extensive menu (not just paella, but skewers, grilled and roasted fish and meats) and for the “really good atmosphere for a restaurant just north of Oxford Street”. The newspaper critics have painted a mostly upbeat, but more mixed, picture.
Arros QD Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Just a very average restaurant for London. Might work as one by the coast in the Med but it ha snot adapt to the UK and hence it doesn’t work as an evening restaurant in London. Wines extremely overpriced. Felt intimated to ask the somelier. That’ll teach me: expensive and rubbish, one of those organic wines that taste of nothing properly grown or with body.... Quite a disappointing experience that I will not repeat, certainly not at this price. Plenty of fish on the (Spanish amazing restaurants) sea"
