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!

Very Nice and not pricy compared with the quality. Good and rapid service. With a local and romantic touch. Try the Spanish coffie

“Gothic romance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

Stunning atmosphere they have there.Took solomillo al forno, which was quite expensive but worth of the money.The beef was thick as a brick but great medium because of the grill they use I think.Try this one!

“Quality food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Ignoring negative reviews of this last week was a wise decision. Arcano provided excellent, attentive service and superbly presented high quality food. Despite not booking we arrived early and were found a table. Good advice on dishes allowed us to eat well for an outstanding price for the quality. Brilliant!

“waste of time..”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

one of the staff was rude and unwilling to serve.. Although we ordered french fries, he insisted to persuade us with boiled potatoes..!!! we tried to get rid of this interesting place; demanded the bill, again we had to wait too long because of that unhelpful, inconsiderate, careless waiter.. it's better to try anywhere else..
