1000 has always been a substantial number...

$1,000 is still a lot of money in anyone's language, 1,000 days ago we were still in lockdown, and 1,000 miles is far to far to walk, unless we are The Proclaimers!

Well, we are very pleased to share that we have reached that significant milestone of 1,000 Google Reviews for Arcobar...

Whilst it is really only a number, ALL the reviews are real, and reading the reviews details six years of Arcobar providing some great service, as well as providing some appalling service (probably true), providing really great food, and providing some terrible food (apparently), providing a wonderful night out, and ruining a night out also (according to one reviewer), providing heaps of great live music, and providing an environment that's too loud to to talk on the phone (according to another reviewer).

We aren't going to get it right for everyone, but we do appreciate everyone giving us a go, and our 4.3 star rating isn't too bad (all things considered). As long as we can make most of our customers happy most of the time, we are probably doing ok.

Our past six years of Google reviews includes two years of Covid shutdowns, which was when we took the very unpopular step of speaking out against Chairman Dan on social media (remember our 'Do You Support Dan? Add A $1 To Your Order' campaign), which saw us get absolutely canned by the "I Stand With Dan" people, and our Google star rating dropped to an all time low of 1.4 - all in the space of 24 hours - with well over 500 1 star reviews!

Ironically, it took just another 48 hours for it to bounce back, with lots of love & support from the broader community when it all went a bit viral (Dan even mentioned us in his daily presser!), and Google was kind enough to delete every rating (good & bad) that related to Dan, given the incredible media coverage this nonsense received.

Its fair to say that the dining experience has changed a lot here at Arcobar since we first opened our doors back in April 2018. Most of it for the better, but we also get how frustrating the long queues can be, and that the good old days of a $3 coffee is long gone. Many of our regular patrons have not only become our friends, but also found new friends and a new community with others that are regulars here at Arcobar, and becoming a cornerstone of our community has probably been what we are most proud of.

At the end of the day, we reckon most people don't care too much about our Google ratings, but we think they do care that we appreciate them walking thru the door - which we certainly do.

Thank you to everyone that has referred a friend to us, stuck with us thru "that" period of time, voted for us in the various awards we have won, told us what they like, but most importantly told us what we can do to make Arcobar even better.

From all of us here at Arcobar....... Cheers!
