We are here for Christmas Eve and loved it so much we came back again before our trip was over. Staff is friendly. Food was amazing and they had their own brew of beer that was excellent! Highly recommend!

Arcano has excellent food, attentive service and attractive decor. Convenient to Gothic Quartet. We’d definitely go back the next time we’re in Barcelona.

Mostly international place with lots of nationalities around tables. Good service and good introduction of food. I liked ravioli with rogue very much. Veal chops for main course was also good. I think those two dishes are the best in this place and they are...More

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!
