Arcano was recommended by the staff at our hotel, and it was just around the corner - so a great location! We each had the Ravioli with different fillings and sauces, and they were all wonderful. The service was just right, and the ambiance was...More

Yes, they know how to prepare steaks. All other dishes that we ate was ok, but not as we expected based on the ratings here at TA. We have got much more gastronomic pleasure for the same price level in Barcelona. The staff was friendly...More

We had the €35 tasting menu, which featured multiple starters, and a choice of main course and dessert. Everything was excellent. The flavours of the tuna and Catalan sausage starters were clean and full. Really delicious. Main courses we had the sirloin and entrecôte steaks,...More

We thoroughly enjoyed the "early menu". Lots to choose from and very fair price for the quality of the food, attentive service and charming atmosphere. One of us had the pork loin and the other the beef. Both very tasty. Highly recommended.

Absolute fantastic steaks our party had rib eye and veal and they were cooked to perfection. The warm tomato salad with cheese was mouth watering and the entrees of tomato bread and peasant sausages was scrumptious. The environment is cosy a wonderfull experience.

Excellent restaurant, with an impeccable service, with a fair price. Try the meat “vacio”, which is pretty tasty. The “manzana” for the desert is worth trying as well. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

There isn't a dress code, I think. I went in wearing jeggings, but this isn't a very formal restaurant. In fact, some ladies wearing shorts when I was there.

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!
