    Authentic Filipino food! Recommending to try the sisig, kare-kare, lechon kawali and halo-halo. Filipinos and foreigners alike have given it their approval!

    We had paella with seafood and sangria, everything was very good and satisfied our expectations. The service was nice and fast. The place is informal but nice, I would come back again.

    Super cute and cozy place! Portions generous, they do paella in different ways and we took the one with chicken and fiah, they made it for 3 pax, but cotld be even for 4! patatas bravas as a starters (like 5 euro but really good portion to share in 3) two sangrias, water an coffe, less then 20euros each! and you are in the midde of the city! perfect deal to eat spanish food!

    Food was good, service was okay. I find that there is a fine line between too much attention and not enough. It would have been grand had there been a bit more attention, see if i wanted another glass of wine while eating. More tap water, or at least asking would’ve been good. I enjoyed the mixed seafood paella for my main and the prawn tapa for my starter.

    Awesome mixed chicken and seafood paella and an appetizer of assorted Iberian ham. Best house wines so far. Fills up fast so get there early.

    Very tasty good! Great paella, prices are a bit higher than they should be because it’s in a tourist spot. No regrets as food was delicious!

    It's a small restaurant near the Florist flower shop. Me and my friend tried seafood paelle and fried squid and both of them were above average. our servant Maria was friendly and gentle. I think we will come back again in the future.

    We had made a error in our reservation and they were expecting more than the 2 of us! They were extremely gradcious with our mistake and we had a wonderful meal. We had the seafood paella which was wonderful. We started with the Valencia salad- a green salad with oranges which was very fresh. We had the Catalian Creme for desert which was a sort of creme brûlée. The bottle of Ribera Del Duero was excellent and well priced at 26 E. Our server spoke good English and was very gracious. The meal was well priced for the quality .

About the restaurant

El restaurante El Arco es un destino gastronómico frecuentado por paladares amantes de la cocina mediterránea que se ubica en el centro de Madrid, en el barrio de Las Letras, cerca de plaza del Ángel.

Diferentes tapas se postulan como una buena oportunidad para compartir en la mesa. Las Papas con mojo picón son toda una especialidad. No menos son las Gambas al ajillo, aunque, entre los principales, lo que sí brilla con luz propia es la mano rota que atesora su cocina en la elaboración de arroces. La Paella de marisco y la Paella negra están para chuparse los dedos, igual que el Bacalao braseado y sus diferentes carnes a la brasa.

Para concluir, deja un hueco para los postres caseros del restaurante El Arco. El Panqueque de dulce de leche bien lo merece. Cuenta, además de un dinámico menú del día, con un menú de fin de semana que no te debes perder. ¿A qué estás esperando?
