Had a fabulous meal at Arco Tapas Bar. It's clearing run by a couple very much in love with each other, and you can tell with the food. Amazing service, the food was delicious and exactly what we wanted. Also very reasonable and good size portions. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a great tapas place (and free shots after our meal too!) hope to return again soon.

Visited Arcos tapas last week with two friends after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, it's fair to say that we were all a bit disappointed. The food was good but not amazing, it did not seem to be authentic or particularly fresh. The drinks were very nice and reasonably priced. I would visit again for cocktails but not for tapas.

We read a review on this place before we arrived, and luckily it was in walking distance from our hotel.
A very quaint restaurant on the busy strip of The Old Town. Although service was abit slow due to husband/wife duo and one other waitress, it actually worked out for the better as we could have a leisurely drink in between each dish!
The presentation of the food was fab, very modern, crisp and clean. All food was freshly cooked and served at a relaxing pace. We almost ordered everything of the menu and was not disappointed with any of the dishes.
If we return to Marbella again this restaurant will most definitely be on the top of our list. Make sure you go visit this place it will be worth every penny

We booked this bar for a table of 15 of us for tapas and drinks on a Saturday night. All communication with the owners before the event was prompt and efficient. On the night, the food was amazing, the drinks kept on flowing and a good time was had by all! My husband and I visit the area at least 5 times a year, and this is definitely a permanent fixture on our itinery! The black pudding dish in particular stood out as amazing, and the plates of ham were hoovered up very quickly...

Many thanks for providing such a lovely birthday evening!

Well we love this place. Visited four times during our recent holidays to Marbella. The new husband / wife owners have updated the menu and it continues to be top quality gourmet tapas. The problem as we witnessed is that husband is the chef- just him and wife is front of house on her own. Watching the chaos unfold as the tables fill up and orders / food / clearing tables mount is saddening. We saw a few customers cancel their food due to having to wait. We saw people arrive and sit waiting 30+ minutes to get drinks ordered. It took us half hour to get a drink and a further half hour to have our food orders taken and a further 45 minutes for it to arrive. By 11pm we'd lost the will. You just want to go and help out! But twice now we've seen the husband and wife combo battle through trying so hard to keep everyone happy. Why they don't employ a few more front of house staff to keep things ticking over, we have no idea. Great food but if they're not careful people will vote with their feet.
