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!

This restaurant relies on TripAdvisor to bring in customers. For instance 4 swedes at the next table found it that way. Atmosphere fascinating. Food very good. Waiters friendly. Wine list interesting. Two of three things our spouses ordered came wrong. My wife said the bathroom were appalling. Don't order a vodka martini. Interesting drink arrived but not a martini as Americans expect them to be. We were glad we went.

We found this restaurant on tripadvisor and managed to book a table. It's down a nondescript alley but the restaurant is lovely with exposed stonework, and nicely lit. The service was excellent and the house wine very good (my wife likes white and I like red)! The steaks were very succulent and nicely presented. I loved the little gaspachos which were served in a shot glass. All in all a brilliant experience. We enjoyed it so much we booked again for the next night and it was equally good. Highly recommended.

As experienced hobby-restaurant tester I can say: perfect place. Very welcoming, uncomplicated, friendly, excellent service and food, charming ambience. The steak was perfectly grilled as requested. There is no single criticism to make. Just perfect! Thank you for this very enjoyable dinner!

One of the best I've had and it's not one or two beef and not one or two cities in a world!

Nice athmosphere and great service as well!

Rather odd ... My third review on a steak restaurant in the last couple months. We are in Barcelona to start a six week vacation, Inwhich we will do the first two weeks riding the El Camino Trail. Need I say more, how much the idea of a great steak as a last dinner before we head off on a 850 k pilgrimage went over?
One of our grop had found Arcano on Trip Advisor, and we all were pleased with the choiceexcellent. Dinner was fabulous, wine was very good. Portions are substantial ... The 300g sirloin was more than enough, at 30+ euro it was well priced. Service was very good. we were a group of 7, only 3 had steak ... This is not just a steak house. Ambiance is very nice.
