This was quite the dining experience! We showed up without reservations and had a drink at the front while waiting. Well worth the wait!! The food was art at its finest and the service was unparalleled. I am not a red meat eater but the filet here changed that for sure! Everything was seriously delicious and when our server suspected... More

I have selected this restaurant after reading other comments in this website. I have it is on average for starters and desserts, while it is very well positioned considering meat, which was very well cooked despite big. Cava is also very good. Easy to be reached, considering it is 3 minutes walking from Jaume I metro station. Suggested.

We went to this restaurant because it was rated very good at tripadvisor. And it was good. The steaks were great! But the vegetables that came with the steaks were a bit overcooked. I would like them more crispy. They tasted good, but way to mushy. When it comes to dessert you should try the mousse. Heavenly!! Looks like an... More

Great little find in the edge of the gothic quarter. Friday night meal rebooked through 'the fork'. Went fur the full 3 courses with wine and everything was fresh, tasty and set in a chilled 'cave-like', dimly lit , atmospheric environment. Service was very good, attentive, easy going and adapting to our mono lingual ignorance. Would certainly repeat the experience.

Everything was perfect about this meal - the type you just swim through, gorging delicious food and suddenly you're outside fatter, later and drunker. The steak with foie gras was great and the service was excellent. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area

Perfect location very nice people and the food is very good with super reasonable prices. We had a very good time. We thought it might be too much touristic and not local but we were wrong and it was GREAT.

I always make it a point to eat at Arcano once each time I visit Barcelona. In 2014 I ate there 2 or the 3 times I was in the city. I believe it must be the best restaurant for a good steak, cooked exactly the way I like cooked. The wine selection is decent and the wait staff very... More

Don't let other reviews, mostly written by British or Americans, dissuade you from visiting this place. The food is an awesome marriage of Argentinean and Spanish cooking. Having been on foodie trips all over Spain, and after several visits to Buenos Aires, I can confidently say this place stands out. The "entraña" cut was nothing short of perfect, and just... More
