Owner Luis Matos of the Dominican Republic has tried to create a genuine Latino restaurant in Fukuoka, and it seems he has succeeded! Offering excellent dishes from Spain, Mexico, and South America, this restaurant is guaranteed to please those looking for a dining experience whose attraction lies mainly in the food. Then again, the atmosphere is not so bad either. The interior is dimly lit but warm and inviting, and as it is made almost entirely of wood, there is a pleasantly aged feel to the place. The clientele tends to be couples or small groups interested in good food and good wine-that or intimate conversation. Arena is small, and even when full, the noise level is never too loud. The specialty is without doubt paella. The restaurant offers several different kinds, and it is known throughout the city. A plate of mixed paella costs a wallet-friendly price. Party sets are also available. Bottles of wine are served too while other mixed drinks could also be a refreshing choice.
