AMSTERDAM'S HOTTEST DESTINATION RESTAURANT & BAR

CONCEPT BY HENRIQUE SÁ PESSOA

CELEBRATING THE BEST OF PORTUGAL WITH ASIAN INFLUENCES

INCREDIBLE COCKTAILS

ARCA

Award-winning Portuguese chef Henrique Sá Pessoa, recently named 38th Best Chef in the World, opened ARCA in November 2021 as his first restaurant in Europe outside of Lisbon, and the funkier, more relaxed sister to his other outposts. ARCA brings a relaxed and approachable Portuguese sharing plates concept with modern flavours, Asian influences, and impressive cocktails. Find ARCA at Amsterdam’s Art’otel!

ARCA Restaurant & Bar is open Sunday – Thursday 11:00AM – 00:00, Friday & Saturday 11:0Am – 01:00AM.

Please note, from Monday – Sunday from 11:00 until 18:00 we serve the Art’otel lunch menu and small petiscos in the bar, from 18:00 onwards, guests can enjoy the full ARCA dining experience in the restaurant, apart from Monday evening, when ARCA restaurant is closed.

Check out our new art’otel room package with ARCA benefits:

The Restaurant

The ARCA menu is made up of Petiscos, generously portioned plates designed to share, and Larger plates, which can be enjoyed on your own or shared. Signatures include a fresh Octopus Salad, Tuna Tataki, Bacalhau à Brás finished tableside, Braised Alentejano pork cheeks that fall apart at the touch of a knife, as well as a generous Arroz de Marisco piled high with the freshest seafood.

With Henrique as ARCA’s concept chef, his long-serving protégé Ricardo Bastos Pereira as Head Chef & Sous Chef Rodrigo Silva will be leading the ARCA kitchen, both having worked with Henrique for nearly 10 years.

The Bar

ARCA Bar is seamlessly connected to the restaurant with a crafted and highly creative cocktail menu that pairs perfectly with a selection of ARCA plates. Choose a selection of Petisco plates, add your favourite cocktails and you have yourself a great night!

With DJs & live music every Friday & Saturday, this is the place for relaxed evenings, great food and drinks suited to any palette.
