Description: Next to one of the main streets of Barcelona, Laietana track and a short walk from the central market of Santa Caterina, Arcane is the restaurant.Located in an old seventeenth-century barn, mark of beautiful Romanesque arched forms and stone walls that crown many of its spaces.The Mediterranean cuisine is an invitation to the traditional recipes of the coastal region from fresh and balanced dishes that will make your stay a real moment of joy and pleasure.Vegetables, meat and fish dishes are a real specialty Josper house you should not miss on your visit to Barcelona.Our extensive letter without being intended to be balanced, with meat imported from Argentina in vacuum packaging, preserving its taste and quality, pastas and homemade pies, grilled cheese, salads with touches of the house, fresh fish and desserts.At noon, the market offers an elaborate menu with excellent value for money. The restaurant has a private event booked, "winery" intimate and cozy space.And if you just want tapas and peck at the bar have an interesting proposal for this purpose, from fried eggs to escalibada coca bread.And after dinner, nothing better than enjoying our cocktails in a relaxed atmosphere and good music.Oh and if you can not be disconnected from the world, do not worry, we have wifi!Open Monday to Saturday from 1:00 p.M. To 0:00 a.M. And Sunday from 6:00 p.M. To 0:00 a.M.

“Good all round experience. Recommended.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Fast efficient service and very good food and wine in this fine restaurant that is obviously permanent and professionally run. The restaurant has a fine atmosphere and the tables are well spaced. We had salmon (excellent) chicken and ravioli (the latter being a vegetarian choice) followed by good sized and tasty sweets. The ravioli was undersized as a main meal portion and on leaving there was no "goodbye" though the waiters were probably busy. Its quite unusual to leave a restaurant without any recognition from the waiters and we had tipped a good 10% , but perhaps the comments in other reviews about service to tourists is valid.
Nevertheless the restaurant is a very safe bet with a good menue and resonable prices.
I would visit again, without hesitation. I was considering 5 stars but have decided on 4 (four & half would be fairer , perhaps)

“Snail in salad spoilt the meal”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Was looking forward after good reviews.
Complimentary gespacho was a nice touch.
Ordered caprese salad for starter and found a snail at the bottom of the plate.
Didn't enjoy the rest of the meal as a result.
Although they replaced the salad, the owner didn't seem that bothered about it.
On a positive note wifi was free and reliable.

“Great Argentinean place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

We went based on the reviews, and it was really excellent. The food was great (we loved the Entrania). The service was excellent - they gave free drinks at start and at the end. Really recommended! The prices are fare.

“Delicious, elegant, reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

We pick the best restaurant nearby from Tripadvisor and came here. We were a bit hungry for more conventional plates and not tapas. We arrived at 19:00 and were the first at that night so we've got full attention. The service was superb couldn't wish for better. You can taste meats and stakes and we were more than satisfied.

“Great change of pace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We found this nice little restaurant on a little side street thanks to Trip Advisor. We made a reservation for 8 pm and within the hour the restaurant was full. It has a warm inviting feel to it and our service was excellent that evening. We all had steaks which were good but paled in comparison to the superb appetizers and delicious desserts.
