We were greeted warmly. When we did not order potatoes even though one of us wanted them, a small portion was sent to the table. That is the last time we used small in this restaurant. The portions we ordered were called tapas size but were very large. We cannot imagine the size of the regular portions. We started with... More

That's it really. Go, have a superb feed then go again the next night! That's what we did. I'm still dreaming of all the lovely dishes nearly two months on!

We had eaten here on our previous visit and were keen to go back. The restaurant is in a quiet atmospheric small square off Calle Iriate to the south and east of Plaza Charco. We had particularly liked the Canarian potatoes and especially the pink Colorado mojo sauce that goes with them. I'd also liked the beef tapas and this... More

I have been in this restaurant ten years ago, and now when I returned to Puerto de la Cruz I recognised the place. It was a good decision to eat there again. Very good tapas, especially papas arrugadas with their homemade mojos. The owner recommended us their special souse, made with almonds and a hint of chili. Excellent! We also... More

The owner is obviously passionate about his food, we had 5 tapas between two of us, mainly the fish dishes and the Canarian potatoes with half a litre of the sangria. The mussels and potatoes being the standout dishes. Good quality food and drink for 2 for under €50, worth a visit.

5 generous sized tapas was plenty for two of us and all were great quality, especially the chefs special potatoes with sauces but also the tuna and calamares. Very friendly staff, welcoming and relaxing atmosphere.

We go to Puerto every January, and we always eat at Arcon, often on the first night of our stay,because we know exactly what we are getting. There is a limited menu, the famous local potatoes with red&green mojo, beef stew, rabbit stew,beans, chick peas, sardines, and this time I tried the prawns in garlic. Wow. The best I have... More

Tried different things here. The speciality is the home made mojo saus with chili. Nice cheese and nice garlic prawns with mushrooms and bacon.
