We visited Arcano on a Sunday afternoon, without having a prior reservation. We were easily accommodated (party of four), as it was about 6 pm. The restaurant is very nicely constructed and decorated, quite suitable for couples. The staff was very polite and pleasant and generally there was a very "feel good" vibe. The food was excellent!! We tried the... More

Our visit to Arcano was a few months ago but the fact that I'm writing it now proves it has stuck in my mind. We were lucky to get a table as the place was packed even though it is hidden down a quiet street. Despite being busy, the service was faultless. Ambience, Just right. As for the food, well... More

Just off the Rue Laetana this rustic style restaurant offers good food and good service at a reasonable price. A modern and traditional fusion create a comfortable and enjoyable dining experience with a quiet buzz. The food is pleasant and the wine list featured a good choice at decent prices. The staff were friendly and the service excellent. Book at... More

Outstanding service. Food amazing. Well worth a visit. I had the grilled octopus and the Argentina Ravoli. Hubby had the Peasant sausages and the rack of lamb. The presentation of every plate was creative and appealing.

Pros: warm and cozy interior in 400 year old stable, in great area on small street, prices reasonable, wine by glass E4-5, grilled octupus, flank steak, goat cheese salad and brischetta all great, nice small touches, server professional. Cons: back room is not the best and stuffy, ask for front, credit card service was touchy

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!

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
