I booked this restaurant on the back of other Tripadvisor reviews as part of a surprise trip to Barcelona for my boyfriend's 30th birthday. The restaurant lived up to all expectations! Having sampled 4 different restaurants on the 4 nights we spent in Barcelona, I can honestly say that this was the best meal we've had by far. Staff didn't... More

We came to restaurant using Trip Adviser. Good thing about this place is that you can eat all afternoon when many restaurants are closed. We ate appetizer, ribs and some other kind of meat. We have got with that three different kind of sauces. Food was very good but I ate better. Then we had dessert and it was really... More

We happened upon this restaurant while wandering the streets of Barcelona. It's tucked on a small street and the building was once a carriage stable, which makes the interior looks almost cave like.The meal was great!!!

Everything we had on two consecutive nights was excellent. The salad, the anchovies (that come with cavier!), the steaks with the just-perfect grilled veggies, the ravioli with sumptuous bolonese sauce, the house red wine, everything, fantastic. Our first visit was so good we had to return the next night. We have no doubt that everything on the menu is prepared... More

My partner had booked this for me as a surprise birthday meal out. We were running a bit late so got our hotel to phone ahead, they were happy to push our booking back by half an hour. Once we arrived we ordered a bottle of bubbly and soon got served with our starters. One of the prawns on our... More

Restaurant is very nice, atmosphere is charming, waiters are friendly. .. Food was perfect except argentinian steak. It was done english as I ordered, but meat was hard, definitely not good cut for steak. We had delicious locally made craft beer. Their crema catalana is made and served in different way, but is worth to try. I would recommend Arcano... More

Too many better choices to eat here. Hard to believe steak is their speciaty as it was most disappointing. Rib steak was fatty and skirt steak was tough. House beer was very bitter and flat. Best part of the meal was the burrata and tomato salad. Patatas bravas were our worst we had, undercooked. Service started out great and then... More

After reading all the amazing reviews me and my boyfriend couldn't wait to visit Arcano, but we were a bit disappointed. Our starters were amazing, especially my tuna tartar which was exquisite. However, both our mains were disappointing; I had the grilled salmon, which was very plain. No specific extra tastes, and I dare to say I even make it... More

My husband and I had dinner at Arcano twice in mid August during a short stay in Barcelona. Everything at Arcano was just right: food (and presentation), atmosphere and service. I particularly enjoyed the octopus and potatoes as a starter and the baked apple for dessert (see picture),,,,and don't miss the cava sangria! Bon appetit!

Headed here with a group of friends and had a great night. The food was nice and the atmosphere and service was great. Good sized food portions and the starters were amazing. Prices were average, certainly not overly expensive for a night out. My only criticism would be STOP serving foie gras! It's a cruel, unnecessary form of farming and... More
