Meet the Chef

Andre's, owner and chef of Arcadia Gastronomique, was born in Canary Islands and although an Aussie by adoption, remains committed to the principles of traditional Spanish cuisine.”Spain is steeped in tradition and centuries-old customs and has taken its food culture to places it has historically colonised around the world's Andres explains my restaurant, I aim to bring a slice of Spain to customers. His openness to new flavour mergers and techniques is a quality that gives his food a dash of extra flair.

    Food was excellent, it’s a hidden gem. Service was ok, we all felt one of our waitresses was a little rude and we often had to ask for service.

    Always a great experience and some of the best Spanish in Melbourne. Paella, sangria and tapas to satiate most people. They also do a great steak (churrasco) and desserts

About the restaurant

Flamenco Flair

Candlelit tables plus flamenco dancers adorning the walls—what more could you want in Spanish restaurant? Sophisticated yet casual, this romantic gem in Ascot Vale boasts a friendly atmosphere that will transport you to another continent. Andres and Ruth Ruiz-Mesa, the husband-and-wife-team running the show, deliver seasonal comfort food that is traditionally cooked paired with a wide selection of wines. And when it comes to the food, Arcadia Gastronomique isn't shy about portion sizes, making it a great place for groups to share a bite and a tipple. Quench your thirst with some Sangria before perusing the tapas selections. The salmon carpaccio is mouth-wateringly good, and the haloumi cheese is a local favourite, too. For the main, try the chicken and chorizo paella. For the more adventurous, there's black paella in squid ink, too. Save some room for dessert when you're here. The choices are equally difficult, making it essential to pay another visit.
