I try to come to Marbella as often as possible , and each time cannot miss eating at Arco! I love this tapas restaurant, they are so accomodating and friendly, they always try to please their customers, and make them feel at ease...and happy. The food is always delicious, prepared to order and absolutely fresh, langoustine ceviche, fish tacos, timbale parmigiana, even their crunchy delicate patatas bravas are amazing!! Ohh and their tiramisu to die for:) The service is relaxed, and attentive...this team gives out their best effort. If you have specific time needs do book, although if you come early or late you will certainly find a nice table. Love this place!!

Have visited Marbella many times and have visited this restaurant three times now.

The restaurant is situated in Old Marbella and is surrounded by other Tapas bars nearby, however Arco seems to be the most popular.

Service is attentive and pleasant and by no means can i fault the service, however sometimes i feel as if the staff could do with an extra pair of hands ! Sometimes the restaurant can be a bit manic ! By no means is this a fault of the staff, but an extra staff member would maybe help.

Ok the food is a mix of Traditional Tapas and some modern twists for example The Irish Steak with cauliflower mash.

Highlights were the black pudding and apple, the meatballs (small but tasty).

The decor is pleasant and comfy although in summer can get Very hot inside as there is no AC just fans.

Food is very good, although not many Chicken dishes on the menu so you have to be a meat lover !

Tapas comes out at different times so dont expect 6 or 7 dishes to arrive all at same time, sometimes it could be ten - fifteen minutes before next Tapas dish.

Food is good, service is good, decor is nice.....by all means best Tapas restaurant in area

Gets very busy so booking is recommended !

Decide to visit this Tapas restaurant based on Trip advisor reviews, we had no booking and arrived at 8-30pm the place was jammed, the hostess / manager said they would not have a table until 9-30pm , we did not mind the delayed so we decide to have drink in nearby bar while we waited

At 9-30pm we arrived at ARCO and were seated at a nice inside window table, we had 5 different tapas selections all were excellent, along with a cocktail and water bill came to €40
This is and excellent restaurant option when your in Marbella , one other points loads of young people eating they know the good places

Superb quality and selection of delicious tapas. There were 6 of us and we went for a wide selection of 10 tapas. The seafood tacos were the highlight on the night. Lovely setting. Will definitely go back again.
