I visited here with my sister at the beginning of Sept, we were staying at the H10 Montcada Boutique hotel and it was recommended by hotel staff. If you can find the Montcada on the Via Laietana, just follow the walls of the hotel around to the back and it's tucked in the tiny street immediately behind. Advisable to book.... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor as we were only staying around the corner. We were first in at 7pm (being from the UK this was actually quite late for us to eat, one of the reasons we picked Arcano!). The restaurant is very quaint with brick walls throughout. We were welcomed by very friendly staff who looked after us throughout.... More

My wife and I found this restaurant through TripAdvisor and due to previous reviews our expectations were high. The restaurant exceeded our expectations in terms of service, ambience and quality of food. If you're in the area I suggest you book your table. Not the cheapest, but certainly the best I've experienced. We will definitely be coming again.

We arrived at this restaurant due to the reviews we had read within TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. What a wonderful place, with rustic stonework, you get the sense that you are within a wine cellar. Quiet, personal, friendly and special. And the food, oh my god, loved the grilled octopus within the tastiest broth I have ever had and... More

We had dinner at the Arcano based upon trip advisor reviews, and it did not disappoint. We each tried a different house wine, one vino blanco and one vino rosado, for 3 euros each. They were both very pleasant and easy to drink. We started with the grilled octopus and the goat cheese salad- both were sensational! For entrees we... More

Charming old city setting. Interior was nice balance of character and class. Ten of us had a selection of starters, mpstly steak for main course and lots of chocolate desserts. All wonderful. Wine was lovely and the service was good. I recommend this restaurant. I will be going back when ever I can!

This was the one restaurant that we booked ahead of our trip and we're so glad we did! We booked online through The Fork which all went through without a hitch.
