Description: The restaurant closed for renovation from 20 Feb 2017 until 27 Feb 2017 inclusive. Arco Taberna restaurant is a popular dining destination for lovers palates Mediterranean cuisine located in the center of Madrid, in the neighborhood of Las Letras, near Plaza del Angel. Different caps are postulated as a good opportunity to share on the table. Potatoes with mojo are all a specialty. Not least are the garlic prawns, though, the main, which itself shines is the broken hand that holds her kitchen in the preparation of rice. Seafood paella and black Paella are scrumptious. To conclude, leaving a gap for the homemade desserts restaurant El Arco. The dulce de leche pancake well worth it. Plus a dynamic menu of the day, with a menu of weekend that you should not miss it. What are you waiting for?

I visited the restaurant three times with my wife and we had seafood paella and entrecôte streak as main dish and various starters (garlic prawns, pulpo a la gallega and grilled cuttlefish).
Very friendly staff and excellent service. Great food quality and taste for both starters and main dishes. Especially the seafood paella is highly recommendable.

We reserved a table because of the nice reviews here but we were really disappointed. Service was not welcoming, food was bad, wine wasn’t good. I would not recommend it. It’s a place that doesn’t reserve your attention. There is nothing typical and made with taste in this place. It’s the type of restaurants that I generally try to avoid but this time the reviews here misled me.

In fact I'd say poor quality.
We booked for 19.00 on a Sunday but the place was empty, we should have taken that as sign but we persevered.

Service was adequate. Seafood was not fresh, paella was really nothing special, oily and virtually tasteless.
We were really disappointed as we didn't expect to get bad paella in Madrid.
There are so many better places around and close by, it wasn't cheap anyway.
Try Plaza de Santa Ana for much better range.

As a vegetarian, I can struggle to find a good meal when in Europe. This restaurant has a lovely choice of tapas and the vegetarian paella is full of flavour (although you can request some hot sauce as I did!) The staff are very caring and made us feel very welcome. A true highlight of our holiday.
