As of January 2016 there is a big banner across the door at Los Arcos indicating "Se Vende" - it is for sale. Not a bit surprise - it had been going downhills for a long time.

My wife and I stayed in Barra for 2 weeks in January and ate often at Los Arcos de Jalisco. The fajitas were awesome. The tortillas were fresh and warm, and the ingredients for filling them were served hot to the table on heated iron platters. Every evening owner Fausto, and sometimes his son Miguel played the guitar and sang... More

When we returned last spring the molcajete was disappointing -... More

Los Arcos has or had a house specialty - the molcajete - a rich stew served in a sizzling hot volcanic rock bowl. When we last visited Barra de Navidad our family of 5 all enjoyed delicious molcajetes. On this visit our mouths were watering in anticipation as we returned 6 years later.

Good food and you need to bone up on your Spanish. When we were there, the waitress was very nice but spoke no English. So I had to do my Spanish impression. They love you when you try to communicate with them in their language.

This excellent restaurant has been open year round 24/7 in Barra de Navidad since 2002. It is on the main street, almost across the street from the municipal delegation building and the two ATMs. I'd like you to list it so I can review it.
