Do not miss this restaurant. I had read the reviews before my trip and was super excited to eat there. True to the reviews, Arena Negra did not disappoint. The food they serve is fresh, beautiful, and delicious. It's a mingling of local Mexican, and Thai flavors. Sooo good.
My favorites, without a doubt, were the Shrimp Burger, the Combo Platter (too much food for one person!), and the Skewers. I don't dislike octopus, just not my go-to menu item. However, Arena Negra's chef has changed that for me. I don't know if its the marinade, the grilling technique, or the freshness of the octopus (probably a combination of all those things) but I am a huge fun of the octopus there.
And order one of the fresh sodas. I had the house-made ginger soda every time I dined at Arena Negra.
The owners take a lot of pride in the food and environment they’ve created and it shows. I will certainly be returning to Arena Negra.
