Portuguese & Asian influences by Henrique Sá Pessoa

Concept by 2 Michelin Star Chef Henrique Sá Pessoa




Award-winning Portuguese chef Henrique Sá Pessoa, recently named as one of the Top 100 Best Chef’s 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!
