Every time we come to Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife we go to Arcón Tapas,first because its canarian food is delicious and second because it is in such a pretty little square... The service is excellent and Alvaro And Carmen, te owners, will do everything to explain the typical food. They speak German French and English which helps a lot.

We came early in our holiday and liked it so much we came back on our last night in Puerto de la Cruz. Simply lovely tapas and the best Canarian potatoes ever. We liked the sauces so much we bought some to take home.

We were made to feel very welcome And enjoyed sitting outside in the lovely square people watching. A must visit if you're in the area

We arrived hot and tired and looking for our apartment when came across the square full of colourful plants. The Arcon wa sshady and serves a selection of tapas from a menu with pictures.
Highlight for me was the chickpeas-cooked with cinnamon but the prawn and mushroom was also good-Great start to our holiday!

The best tapas we had on our stay. We went twice and chose 5 dishes betwwen 2 of us each time. The papas arrugada (wrinly potatoes) with mojo sauces is a bit of a speciality here, and as the best we had. The service could be a bit off though. Bothtimes we were there, the owners left about 9:30 and left a couple of young waitresses in charge.

We started with Canarian potatoes with the mojo sauces- green and red sauces with a chilli dip if you wanted to add extra heat. We tried several restaurant's potatoes/sauces and these were by far the best.

We tried several tapas (some racion sized). We can certainly recommend the chick peas with chorizo, as well as the butter bean dish. We had octopus too which was deliciously tender. As or the meat dishes the beef was excellent quality, no fat, and once again sumptiously tender in an excellent red wine based sauce. No visit is complete without rabbit; a good sized tapas portion with plenty of meat on its bones.

The owner spoke excellent English, was genuinely friendly, and very helpful in describing the various dishes. One of our company dropped a 50 euro note on the floor which the owner spotted and returned immediately. The waitresses too exuded a certain charm.

We had a litre of wine and one large beer and altogether it came to 60 euros.

Excellent value for an excellent meal- both in terms of quality and quantity.
