    Our last night in Barcelona and we happened to stumble upon this gem. It was not busy but I had seen some good buzz on the internet so I just figured we got lucky. First off incredibly polite and attentive service. We started with the vegetables and romanesco and pan con tomate. I’m just not sure how you make such simple things explode with flavor but they did it. It set a great tone for the rest of the meal which was unbelievable. We had the pesto ravioli which was absolutely incredible. As well as the chicken thigh with the creamy mushroom sauce which was truly one of them top 5 best things I’ve ever eaten in my life. Such incredibly simple dishes but somehow everything was amazing. Truly beautiful dining experience in every way.

    very nice atmosphere, very good structured card with interesting balance of menues and a la card, attentive service, excellent meat quality, starters partly with catering touch, deserts with potential

    We had a really good experience with our visit here. The food was very lovely. We had the three course tasting menu (the smallest one). We shared the appetizers and had different main courses and desserts. The atmosphere was very nice and the waiters was so sweet and nice. The only thing though, we got asked if we wanted some sauce for the steak (after it was served), however no one told us we were supposed to pay for it. It’s fair enough to pay extra, but they just have to tell you before bringing it in.

    We like to eat good and reasonable and decided to try something new this night. Food quality was good, nothing special. But we where annoyed by a penetrant smell. First we thought that it comes from the desodorant of the toilets. After changing the table we noticed, that the cleaning product of the table ist smelling that intensively that it accompanied us during the whole dinner. Not pleasant at all. All in all: too expensive for what we got, a tourist place. We will continue with our (numerous) other favorites.

    Really cozy and romantic atmosphere, nice staff, good food. In a sketchy alley way, stay alert and hide belongings. Overall nice evening, good wines.

    Great restaurant with great food at great location. Excellent service and attention to details. Compared to the other crowded places in Born this feels more quiet to have enjoyable dinner.

    Wow! Is this place ever great. We did one of the tasting menus with wine pairing. Every dish was delicious and the staff was so wonderful. One of the best meals we had in Spain.

    Wir hatten einen ausgesprochen schönen Silvesterabend mit sehr gutem und freundlichem Service in sehr schönen Ambiente, das Essen war ausgesprochen schmackhaft und wurde sehr ansprechend serviert. Die Getränke lecker, es wurde aufmerksam nach gegossen. Pünktlich um Mitternacht waren wir fertig mit allen Speisen und konnten zufrieden und gut gesättigt auf das neue Jahr anstoßen. Der Preis von 100€ pro Person für das Silvestermenü war mehr als gerechtfertigt, wir sind rundum zufrieden und können das Restaurant aus voller Überzeugung zu 100% empfehlen. Herzlichen Dank für den gelungenen Abend

    We chose Arcano for our anniversary dinner and it felt very special and all the food was delicious! We decided to try one of the tasting menus, to have an overview of the plates of the restaurant. I personally loved the tuna steak, it was very tender and the combination with the Japanese sauce on top was perfect. A great thank you goes also to the team and to our waiter, we couldn't have asked for a better evening!

    The staff were very welcoming and the restaurant had a warm ambience. The food was beautifully presented and tasted great. Only slight thing to mention was the delay in taking a drink order after being seated.

About the restaurant

"From the gastronomic marriage of a Catalan and an Argentine, Arcano restaurant was born, located a few steps from the Mercat de Santa Caterina of Ciutat Vella and expert on merging Catalunya Mediterranean cuisine with ingredients from Argentina. See what a successful mix it is?

Arcano is located in an ancient Romanesque stable of 17th-century with stone walls, large arches and a rustic style where you will be delighted with their vegetables, meat and fish cooked on coals. The grilled vegetables with romesco sauce, its Argentine Sirloin steak or spinach and ricotta ravioli are some of the dishes that you will fall in love with.

In Arcano you can also eat tapas and start your evening with one of the special cocktails. Surrender to the culinary connection Catalan-Argentina!"
