    Excellent service, almost everything tasted amazing - we had soup, sirloin, mushroom risotto, and shrimp. Only one dish was not my cup of tea (mushroom risotto) but my husband loved it. Interesting conversation starting artwork. I actually wished I had stayed a couple of nights at the hotel it was attached.

    The ambiance is lovely. The service was excellent- we were enthusiastically greeted as we arrived. We had a cocktail in the bar. Great cocktail menu!! We were given just the right amount of attention during dinner - very attentive but not hovering. Our lovely waitress ( Anastasia) gave us good suggestions for our dinner choices (tuna tataki and cuttlefish appetizers. Sea bass and tuna entrees and chocolate mouse for the finish. ) Everything was delicious!! We enjoyed sitting by the kitchen and observing the chefs at work!! You made our anniversary dinner very memorable!!! Thank you!!

    Omg, wow is all I can really say. The food, the restaurant, the service, everything was perfect. I so wish I could remember the name of the guy that served us because he was brilliant (dark hair!). We had the most amazing night, much helped by our brilliant waiter for the evening. So friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about the food. And the food itself - hats off to the chef, the best meal we had in Amsterdam by a country mile. I so so so recommend if you are in Amsterdam, do not sleep on this restaurant! Thankyou Arca!

    Overall, a good experience. Food is great for sharing. We were a party of 2, ordered 3 appetizers, 1 main and 1 dessert which was plenty. The cuttlefish tempura was excellent, tender morsels coated in a light batter. The prawns in chilli, garlic oil was also good. A tad salty on its own but went really well with the bread. We also did the lemongrass clams. Sauce was excellent, but the clams that day was skinny. Still the sauce was so good we ordered a second loaf of bread to mop it up. For mains we had beef, which was also excellent. Service was good, Azeddime was great. Attentive, knows his wine and takes the trouble to pour our wine in manner that was least disruptive (always going behind us). Genuinely warm. I can see that he is probably one of the reasons why the restaurant won a Michelin star.

    We were really excited to eat at Arca. The ambiance of the place is very nice. Staff is friendly and enthusiastic, but slow: we spend a significant amount of time staring at empty plates and near the end of the evening we had to ask for service (e.g. the last dessert / another glass of wine) even though many other guests had already left. The food was nice (especially the pork cheek and the chocolate mousse), but given the restaurant's reputation, a bit underwhelming. All in all, I think that in the Amsterdam dining scene there are better value-for-your-money options.

    Arca AmsterdamResponded on July 20, 2022Thank you for your feedback, Anneleen. I am pleased to read for choosing the Arca restaurant and for the good impression on the ambience of the place, on our hospitable team and the food was to your liking.

    Excellent food in a really nice setting. The tasting menu was a delightful selection of traditionally inspired Portuguese dishes with a contemporary twist. The menu is good value for money. The staff were charming and explained each dish with real enthusiasm. The Dao we chose was very good but a tad expensive at 55 eur a bottle. Would definitely recommend Arca.

    Amazing Food for a very fair price! Unfortunately the setting doesn't help the food - meaning Arca Hotel doesn't feel like the right place for this type of kitchen. Would much rather see this menu in a smaller or more historical building dedicated to this restaurant (imagine having a terrace somewhere in the old south). Service has room to improve - very friendly and hard working staff member at the bar but unfortunately she wasn't well instructed by the manager. Soup came without spoons, orders took a long time. And some stewardess standing around and chatting while the staff was looking for solutions.

    Finally found a (for us) new restaurant in Amsterdam that is worth a 5 *. The ambiance, the drinks, the service, and the food. Never thought that Portuguese and Asian cuisine can complement each other in such a delicious way. We were a party of 4, so 2 of us ordered the Portuguese Discovery menu and the other 2 the Touch of Asia menu. Of course, we decided to share everything and this was the best decision. Every dish was perfectly executed and tasted amazing, the absolute star is the PÃO DE LÓ (warm sponge cake with goat cheese ice cream)! All the dessert is actually full of umami flavor, kudos to the kitchen team. The only thing we didn't like was the espresso martini, we ordered 3 and none of them tasted the same, 1 is creamier than the other, 1 was sweeter, and 1 too much vodka. Thank you, Arca for the unforgettable dining experience.
