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!

“So glad we came here!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Read about this restaurant on TA when we were planning our trip to Barcelona. We are so glad we decided to eat at Arcano. I had the cava sangria and it was so refreshing. We started with the empanadas and they were delicious. My husband and I both had steaks and they were cooked perfectly. Make sure you save room for dessert - the crepe with dulce de leche drizzled with chocolate was amazing! The restaurant decor is rustic but charming. Service was great and our server spoke English. We would definitely come back here next time we are in Barcelona.

“Great restaurant and really affoardable”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We stumbled across this place looking for a late lunch. Glad we found it - the food was amazing (x3 courses) and was really, really affordable.

It was quite quiet because we went there at around 3pm but couldn't recommend the [pace highly enough. The service was quick and the waiters were really polite.

Definitely recommended - will go again next time I'm in Barcelona.

“Argentinian Steaks to Die For”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We were searching high and low for somewhere to eat that was something other than tapas, it proved to be pretty tough!
So after searching on tripadvisor we came across this place with pretty good reviews, and we were looking for a great steak: Arcano didn't disappoint!
To start we shared some jumbo prawns; these were grilled, delightful. For main, we both had the angus, it was cooked to perfection, with cracked salt and pepper.
Inside the restaurant the waiters were so welcoming, very attentive and the atmosphere was just right. It appeared we were lucky to get a table, as just after we sat down people got turned away: fully booked.
Will go again next time in Barca. Highly recommended.
