    The food, in particular the tapas was great. Ambience was also good but sadly the service was very slow ???? and the one waitress was unable to answer the questions we had about the menu.

    Best food in Melbourne. We travel from the other side of the bay to come to this place as we previously lived down the road. We couldn't recommend it enough

    Amazing food and really enjoyed ourselves. Had the paella and my partner had steak - highly recommend. I am also gluten free and dairy free and the labelling on the menu is excellent.

About the restaurant

Flamenco Flair

Candlelit tables plus flamenco dancers adorning the walls—what more could you want in Spanish restaurant? Sophisticated yet casual, this romantic gem in Ascot Vale boasts a friendly atmosphere that will transport you to another continent. Andres and Ruth Ruiz-Mesa, the husband-and-wife-team running the show, deliver seasonal comfort food that is traditionally cooked paired with a wide selection of wines. And when it comes to the food, Arcadia Gastronomique isn’t shy about portion sizes, making it a great place for groups to share a bite and a tipple. Quench your thirst with some Sangria before perusing the tapas selections. The salmon carpaccio is mouth-wateringly good, and the haloumi cheese is a local favourite, too. For the main, try the chicken and chorizo paella. For the more adventurous, there’s black paella in squid ink, too. Save some room for dessert when you’re here. The choices are equally difficult, making it essential to pay another visit.
