During my time in Barcelona directly before the pandemic, my partner and I had the pleasure of dining in Arcano. I don't remember how we found it...but I know that the food, ambience, and experience will always be a fond memory that I hope to...return to one day. Please do not go anywhere, Arcano. I will be back as soon as possible.More

We had two entrees which were the sausage with bean puree and the octopus with mash. They were generous portions and with wine and water 45 Euros. Service was good . Informal restaurant in pleasant area of town. Given a small bottle of olive oil...as a fridge magnet at the end of our meal! Nice touch. Overall the place and the food didn't wow me.More

We got the tasting, and each dish was somehow better than the last. Our server Willam was extremely attentive and friendly. Would recommend.

Arcano fitted our group of 6 in on a Saturday night, we only waited an hour, which was so good of the team. We had the tasting menu and wine pairing, William looked after us very well, the food was some of the best we...have ever had and such good value. The chefs even catered for a nut allergy. Well worth a visit. Thank you team.More

This was our best meal of the trip. The room is lovely, service is excellent and the food outstanding. Their fixed price menus enable you to try several appetizers and desserts along with a great entree. The rack of lamb and steaks are particularly good....Don't skip dessert - it's exceptional too.More

We chose a la carte as we didn’t want the three course dinner options. I had the entrecôte and my wife had the rack of lamb. Both were cooked perfectly and exactly how we’d asked for them. The accompanying veg weren’t necessarily the best. But...the quality of the meat more than made up for that. The drinks were reasonable and all round we thoroughly enjoyed our meal here.More

For an expensive restaurant, surprisingly bad food. “Argentine angus steak” was stringy and had no flavor. Simple tapas were dried out. Check was for 115.50 but waiter put through 150.50. Maybe an honest mistake but ...More

I think their 3 course menu up to 6.00pm is around 15 euro and after 6.00pm is 20 - 25.00 euro. They have menu and prices on their website.

Yes, should be open continuously. We made a reservation for 7:30 PM and there were only about 2-3 tables occupied at that time and then quickly became full by 8:30-9. Reservation is recommended but you’ll probably be fine... More

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.
