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

We settled on this place after looking at the glowing reviews on TA. The place itself is tucked down a side street, and seems to be abit of a hidden gem. Said to be a converted stable, the place has lots of exposed brickwork and woods, which makes for a very romantic atmosphere. The food itself was lovely, and slightly... More

The meal started off with a delightful surprise: a small and delicious glass of gazpacho. Everything was uphill from there. The empanadas, octopus and salad appetizers were outstanding. The skirt steaks were perfectly cooked as was the ravioli. The chocolate truffles and the sorbet were the perfect way to end the meal. Afterwards we had another delightful surprise- a small... More

My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant tonight. Our conceirge at Mercer Hotel recommended Arcana and we were not disappointed. It was the best meal we had in Barcelona. We had the beef and it was spectacular. The tomato caprese salad was also superb. We saw a lot of care taken to make sure the meal was special... More

This place is charming with excellent food...sangria superb. Great service. Fish was wonderful and presentation excellent. We ate prawns, potatoes, tomato bread, salmon, spinach ravioli and citrus sorbet. Great menu for tweens. They accommodated our family of four at 7 pm without a reservation on a Friday night (August). Cool location. Follow your google maps to locate them. You won't... More

After reading reviews decided to eat at this restaurant and was not disappointed! Food, service and friendly waiting staff all excellent! The tomato bread is amazing and the steak cooked in their special oven to die for! Especially when given the hot stone to ensure my steak was cooked to perfection! This coupled with the free entree gazpacho and the... More
