Been here several times during the years and its always so good. Its not cheapest place to go but the food and the staff are always exceptional! Papas Arrugadas are to die for and other tapas aswell really good. If you are up for good tapas go here and experience it the best way.

The food was carefully prepared with some unique dishes made out of family recipes. Very tasty and super nice staff. We thought that for a canarian restaurant the bill was at the end a little too high.

We had seen this tapas place for a while and decided to give it a try. First impressions of surroundings and menu were fine but because my wife has recently developed a strong garlic allergy she inquired as to what items on the menu would be suitable for her. Then came the first lecture : "this is spanish cuisine and... More

You simply mußte try the "papas arrugadas" at Tapas Arcon when staying at Puerto de la Cruz. They are simply great and the square with blooming trees provides a beautiful surrounding to enjoy some fantastic tapas

We were greeted warmly. When we did not order potatoes even though one of us wanted them, a small portion was sent to the table. That is the last time we used small in this restaurant. The portions we ordered were called tapas size but were very large. We cannot imagine the size of the regular portions. We started with... More

That's it really. Go, have a superb feed then go again the next night! That's what we did. I'm still dreaming of all the lovely dishes nearly two months on!

We had eaten here on our previous visit and were keen to go back. The restaurant is in a quiet atmospheric small square off Calle Iriate to the south and east of Plaza Charco. We had particularly liked the Canarian potatoes and especially the pink Colorado mojo sauce that goes with them. I'd also liked the beef tapas and this... More

I have been in this restaurant ten years ago, and now when I returned to Puerto de la Cruz I recognised the place. It was a good decision to eat there again. Very good tapas, especially papas arrugadas with their homemade mojos. The owner recommended us their special souse, made with almonds and a hint of chili. Excellent! We also... More

The owner is obviously passionate about his food, we had 5 tapas between two of us, mainly the fish dishes and the Canarian potatoes with half a litre of the sangria. The mussels and potatoes being the standout dishes. Good quality food and drink for 2 for under €50, worth a visit.

5 generous sized tapas was plenty for two of us and all were great quality, especially the chefs special potatoes with sauces but also the tuna and calamares. Very friendly staff, welcoming and relaxing atmosphere.
