About Us

“From fire to table” is what defines us at ARCA.

Our menu is micro-seasonal and is a current representation of the flora and fauna around us. We have curated a menu in tune with our roots and traditions, with bold and explosive flavors. Open-fire cooking dominates our menu which is composed of small plates intended to be shared, a way of eating that is inherent in Mexican culture.
We have spent several years nurturing our relationship with our local purveyors whom are now like our family. We cherish these relationships because they allow us to properly represent the diversity of the area, and in turn we help the community that has welcomed us open-heartedly in this jungle paradise we call home.

ARCA IS OPEN TUESDAY TO SUNDAY FROM 6PM
