ORIGIN

THE BIRTH OF ARTESPAÑOL

During a dinner with Friends, we were having fun looking for an expression to describe a restaurant which combined conviviality, a casual attitude and the idea of sharing, inspired by Spanish gastronomy.  This is how Artespañol was born, the tasting menu of the 21st century and an excellent middle ground between appetizer and paella.

It is an interesting formula that allows us to enjoy a large variety of small dishes, thereby satisfying our gluttony and culinary curiosity. Our pleasures should always be varied, and that is what tapas are there for, and that is why when we ask for “one of…” it will inevitably be followed by “another one of…”. Regardless of whether we opt for counter-service or the comfort of a table, it is an accessible gastronomic formula, which allows us to freely increase the number of dishes, without the constraint of a full fixed menu.

Every appetite, taste and budget are satisfied.

THE FOUNDER'S STORY

Francisco Gomez knows the domain of the hotel business very well as he’s been managing leisure resorts, themed restaurants, music bars etc. Forever starry-eyed, this business manager who speaks passionately of his vocation but with a lucidity and pragmatism thanks to the many years he worked behind the scenes of the restaurant industry. Francisco Gómez is a dynamic businessman who is passionate about media. He worked as Communications Director for a national magazine for the hospitality industry and wrote a travel guide to Catalonia (Balzac Publications). This immersion into trends on ‘both sides of the border’ and his Andalusian origins made him a specialist in Spanish gastronomy and its conviviality. 

In 2006, he decided to put his own stamp with a new concept creating ARTESPAÑOL Paellas and Tapas, a modern version of the “Paelleria”. After 10 years working to improve and perfect this concept, his motivation and dynamism paid off and allowed him to develop ARTESPAÑOL as a franchise.

ARTESPAÑOL Paellas and Tapas

Spanish Show Cooking

The paella is the most famous and favourite Spanish dish worldwide and it is perfect to be enjoyed in family or between friends.

ARTESPAÑOL is a restaurant and bar that proposes an atmosphere and cuisine inspired by Spanish art.

This new concept of Paelleria or Arroceria (a restaurant specialised in the elaboration of paellas), proposes a menu including more than 10 paellas and fideuás (dish prepared like a Paella but with small noodles as a substitute for the rice) served in their traditional paelleras (paella pan). Thanks to a kitchen opened to the dining room and the restaurant window, the Paellero (chef specialized in paellas) is performing a Spanish-style show cooking and promotes the transparency on the quality of the products used. It’s also a way to interact with customers 

The paella is the most famous and favourite Spanish dish worldwide and it is perfect to be enjoyed in family or between friends.

ARTESPAÑOL Paellas & Tapas offers a wide range of more than 50 tapas from every corner of the Iberian Peninsula: Cold or hot, from the most traditional to the most imaginative. Tapas are served in medium-sized plates and they offer a multitude of combinations and Spanish specialties. Tapas are more and more trendy and often replace a complete. 

Wine lovers will also enjoy ARTESPAÑOL’s varied wine menu from all Spanish regions.

At the counter, a table in the restaurant or on the terrace, ARTESPAÑOL Paella and Tapas offers a non-stop service from 11:00 to 00:00.

As soon as a customer enters an ARTESPAÑOL restaurant, he can choose his menu between 12 languages available. In the dining room he discovers a place mat to have an appetizing overview of all the tapas. The pictures, the numbering and the detailed description of each dish accelerate the sales.
