We visited Arcana as part of our short trip to Barcelona. Both of us has steak (my husband had tenderloin and I had skirt) - and both meals were absolutely delicious. Perfectly cooked to order, seasoned perfectly and tender. My mouth is watering writing this a year and a half later. The ambiance was really neat, cave-like, like many reviews... More

What makes the place special is the blue cheese foam appetiser and the cava sangria which is freshly prepared. The staff is very friendly.
