My wife and I went to Arcano early and avoided a wait for a table. Service was prompt and welcoming as soon as we walked in. Interior was that rustic wine-cellar, dimly-lit look which we dig. We splurged and had the full tasting menu and...More

An Atmospheric cavern which houses a fantastic kitchen. Louis our waiter had great suggestions and recommended a wine which paired wonderfully with the meal. We will definitely be coming back to this restaurant which delivers high quality food and doesn’t break the bank.

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

The later it gets, you may need a reservation. However, since 5:30-6 is still early, I don’t think it’s required. Enjoy!

Yes, we went with our children, 10 and 11 and they loved it! I would recommend going earlier, it’s big enough and you can find a quiet corner.

There isn't a dress code, I think. I went in wearing jeggings, but this isn't a very formal restaurant. In fact, some ladies wearing shorts when I was there.

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!
