Portuguese Restaurant Amsterdam

ARCA is a Portuguese Restaurant and Bar in Amsterdam. A concept by the known Michelin-starred**, Portuguese chef Henrique Sá Pessoa. His long-serving companion and Head Chef Ricardo Bastos Pereira & Sous Chef Rodrigo Silva – both Portuguese too – lead the ARCA restaurant on a day-to-day basis. ARCA brings a relaxed and approachable Portuguese sharing plates concept, so called Petiscos. Expect traditional Portuguese food but with modern flavours, Asian influences. Also, don’t forget to try one of the impressive cocktails.

Menu
The menu consists of traditional Portuguese food, such as Bacalhau à Brás and Braised Alentejano pork cheeks, as well as dishes with a modern take on Portuguese food such as Tuna Tataki and Cuttlefish Tempura. Besides Petiscos, this Portuguese Restaurant in Amsterdam has two tasting menus on offer for those who simply cannot choose and like to try the best of both worlds. Go for the Portuguese Discovery when you want only the best of Portuguese’ traditional food or dive into a rather influenced Portuguese kitchen with our Touch of Asia menu.

Cocktails at the bar

After a good meal in Amsterdam’s favourite Portuguese Restaurant, ARCA’s bar is the place to relax, unwind and enjoy some highly creative cocktails.  These are a particular focus at ARCA with homemade infused spirits and bitters creating unique drinks. Perfect for a night out, or to pair with a few Petiscos.
