    Bar La Carcel: Eating in a jail?

    by GentleSpirit Written Jul 20, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Arcos, none of the hotels or restaurants have any great facades or anything like that that really distinguishes them. Sometimes you will see some exquisite tile work and such.

    Trying to feed my hunger I wandered out into the streets of Arcos. Eventually I came upon this place. The name sort of amused me, La Carcel means "jail" in Spanish. Perhaps at some point in the past this was the city jail?

    The service was excellent, though I seem to remember that a couple at the table next to my sort of asked for my help when they saw I could speak Spanish. The staff has apparently somewhat limited command of foreign languages (not surprising really.) They seemed to make themselves understood well enough and were really very nice.

    A family bar/restaurant. Portions are decent sized. Service is very good and prices are very good. You can eat very well for not much money. You will spend more though if you stick to just tapas

    Favorite Dish: The Bar LA Carcel specializes in "local food"- particularly tapas. Now if you remember, tapas are really not a full meal, more like appetizers. The owner recommended a chorizo (sausage) with some local cheese. The jamon iberico (ham) was also delicious.

    Parador Nacional: Parador Nacional

    by myriam_c Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located on the banks of the Guadalete, this Parador, formerly the Casa del Corregidor, has an impressive panoramic view of the fertile plain of the river and of the old part of Arcos de la Frontera.
    The typical Andalusian courtyard is joined by traditional decorative elements such as latticework and ceramic tiles. Wooden beams, rugs and round arches complete the decoration of the Parador.

    Favorite Dish: Tapas.

    Parador de Arcos

    by Carmela71 Written Jan 19, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At most of the paradores in Spain, their restaurants should be really good quality with typical dished of the area.

    I am afraid I did not try, but we really tried to have a coffee at the great terrace they have.
    We stayed on the tables for half an hour, enjoying the views, doing photos.

    The waitress passed near a few times but never stopped to ask what we wanted, so at the end, we decided to leave.

    El Torresoto: Open Air Courtyard

    by FredMaine Written Jul 26, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restaurant

    Beautiful decor with arches surrounding the courtyard and blue sky above. There is even a tiny chapel in this courtyard if you want to get REAL serious about saying grace before your meal.

    Favorite Dish: I had a wonderful 3 course lunch for about 10 or 11 Euros. A half liter of wine is included with the meal. The service was outstanding.
