love the steak and throughfully thinking of the owner/chef they give a hot pan for steak in case the meat is too raw or cold after a while. throughful thinking, considerable, good services. quite pricey but worth it.

It's always so great to go dine at a place that has great food, service and atmosphere. Arcano definitely meets all those criteria. My husband and I do not speak any spanish, so it was so convenient for us that the servers spoke perfect english. They are very knowledgable about the food and wine. Everything we ordered was great!

The location (hidden in a side street of the gothic quarter) is perfect and the exposed brick/cave interior makes for a very romantic setting. The service and steak were brilliant and the patatas bravas were delicious!

Couple looking for dining experience. Chose the restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews. Nice location and ambiente. Staff was excellent; polite and eager to please. However entrée (squid) was overcooked and seemed old, same with main (lamb). Staff did great job, offering replacement of the main course, sadly it too was overcooked. Rest of dinner was ok, but the total experience... More

If you want to have a great dinner go to Arcano. We were treated to great food, great service and atmosphere. The cost was also a surprise. Very reasonable for the quality of the food. The chef was amazing. Every plate of food looked like it was from a Michelin restaurant and tasted just as good. Thank you to the... More

I can't really fault this restaurant in any way but nothing really stood out either. The food was very good along with the service and the wine. I couldn't help notice that it could have been in any other city in the world. Would recommend for the less adventurous tourist but if you want to feel like you're really in... More

Visited Arcano after having read some good reviews and so pleased that we did. It's on a side road but don't be put off by that, it was one of the best restaurants that we ate in in Barcelona. The service is excellent, waitors have the perfect balance of being helpful and informative without being encroaching. Food was delicious, especially... More

You know you're enjoying a meal when you unconsciously start making sex noises as you take in the explosion of flavours in your mouth. The decor made for a romantic ambience & the every single one of the staff made contact with us if not served us which was a lovely touch. They're all clearly passionate about their work &... More
