Perfect spot on the beach although you might need to walk a little. Located by the rocks, it is sharing a small area with a wooden terrace where the waiters fight to drag you from Arcis. But once you sit down for a bite or lie down for the day, you fall
For this place and know you will come back. Food is excellent, juices are natural and very tasty and the atmosphere is great.
Service may be a bit slow sometimes or they just mix up things but it's only fair because they're busy. Just check it with them and you'll be fine.

We had eaten here several time and the food was amazing. From the display and presentation to amazing flavor cooked to perfection. Because of this and the personalized service, I chose this venue to propose to my fiancé. Lorenzo and his staff handled every detail for the perfect evening. We had an enchanting evening on the beach with candlelight, flowers and a customized menu. The evening was magical and perfect. If you have a special request they will more than accommodate. The Arcis is a diamond in the rough. Do not pass this up.

Their Eastern Food Menu is excellent. Nearly as it should be - however, like all Mexican restaurants, the service sucks (even when speaking fluent spanish). I would only recommend dining for the Asian menu. Mexican food... don't even try it

The Arcis is the perfect spot for a lazy Day at the beach. It has longchairs and hammocks, the food is great, the jugos de fruita are delicious and the staff is so friendly that you immediately feel at home. The prices are very fair and if you want the house special, don't look into the card just ask Elmer (the always cheery guy that works there) for the Quesadilla Gigante. The Arcis really is paradise at its best!

We were invited to dinner at Arcis by a friend because the food is good and on Tuesdays they have live music. We were in for a wonderful surprise. We promptly went back the following Tuesday. The restaurant is owned by a Mexican family. They manage to cook the most delicious food in a tiny kitchen. The seafood is so fresh you are sure it was caught that very morning. The service is fast and the marguaritas on the rocks are perfect. The decorations are basic but you hardly notice as you enjoy your delicious meal and listen to the most interesting trio. Alfonso on guitar and vocals, Julianne vocals and Ben on saxophone.
