Located at a corner of the placa it's easy to find this restaurant. We ordered entrecote and it was exactly as we wanted it. Service efficient and friendly.

We ate there on a saturday evening and where not disappointed: we had lobster and langustine crayfish and it was fantastic! Really fresh and perfectly seasoned. Also the starters and the desert was great. The service personel was very friendly and the ambience inside was very nice. There was a brilliant young man playing the piano and singing. We enjoyed...

A really nice place close to the main street las ramblas. The food was good and it didn't cost special much compering to other places in Barcelona. The plaza is very nice and there are a lot of restaurants here. We ordered tapas and it tasted nice.

Excellent lobster paella and very friendly and efficient service in the best square in Barcelona. Even in February the outside terrace was heated and very comfortable. Recommended.

Place should have closed the day they opened. So we walked in and it was late around 1030pm. The waitress looked like they wanted to just go home but it was fine. We ordered croquettes, grilled octopus , veal and vegetable burger. It was 56 euros which isn't the deal. The deal was that my octopus had hair in it.... More

The plaza was really nice so we decided to eat at the terrace. First of all the waiter was really brute, he almost threw the drinks at us. Then when our hamburger and pasta arrived it was a really poor presentation. The hamburger consisted of a burned peace of square bread with the hamburgermeat and 20 fries. The "fresh" pasta... More

My wife, two children, two friends and I ate dinner here in January 2017. Mariscco Reial is located on the charming Plaza Real. The plaza was illuminated with holiday lights and a fountain in the center. We ate outside as it was warm enough. My wife and daughter had lobster paella and I shared vegetable paella with one of our... More

Nice fish - fresh and well-cooked. However, portions are quite small. This is a tourist-oriented restaurant and if you're prepared to walk a bit, you'll get better value elsewhere.

Went to the other marisco in barcelona and couldn't fault it. Five of us chose our fish and it wAs cooked to order. This place is a totally different kettle of fish. (Excuse the pun) Took my partner for birthday meal, it was awful!, €60 later wished we'd been anywhere else. Avoid this place whatever!!

It was hard to choose one of restaurants on that square. But I'm sure that it's the BEST one! Despite its location prices are reasonable. Food is tasty. We ordered 2 salads, sea bass, entrecote and seafood soup. Soup was soooo amazing! Even if you don't like soups - try it! You will fall in live with this taste. But... More

In the heart of the Gothic neighbourhood on la Plaça Real, the Mariscco Reial restaurant is located in a Renaissance-style building dating back to 1850. This historic site has housed a diverse range of activity, such as the Gran Cafe Espanyol, and later the Pedagogic Museum of Natural Sciences and taxidermy workshop. Respecting the original architecture, Mariscco Reial offers the chance to dine inside a wide, open space, with high ceilings and eclectic scenery, or alternatively, outdoors under the Plaça Reial porticoes and the lamp posts designed by Gaudi. Mariscco Reial is open all-year-round, and boasts a cosmopolitan atmosphere, with a case of seafood and fish showcasing the delicacies available. Serving Mediterranean cuisine, Mariscco Reial serves high quality, fresh produce, which is prepared to the guest's taste. Specialities include rice with lobster sauce and prawn soup, or the climate-controlled cellar showcases a wide selection of wine.
