Description: 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.

We dined here during our short stay in Barcelona. After a lot of researching on TA we went for Mariscco Reial and it definitely didn’t dissapoint. The grilled monkfish and the grilled tuna were cooked perfectly and tasted excellent. Would definitely dine here again next time we’re in Barcelona. The staff were very welcoming and knowledgable.

In a lovely square, It has a model of Salvador Dali astride a hippopotamus celebrating he dined there regularly I doubt he would still be a loyal patron if still alive. Steaks were bony and tough, paella langoustine (arroz de cigales) 47.80 euros for two was not only extortionate but just tasteless rice soup! Disappointing and would not recommend .

I went with 5 colleagues and found the restaurant nestled in the corner of the Placa Reial.
The food was top class with tasty tapas followed by steaks and whole fresh
lobster, amongst other dishes.
The prices were pretty good for a central City restaurant with tapas c.€5 Euros and the main courses €15-22.
Staff were pleasant, though many were not Spanish.
The drinks menus was extensive from cocktails to decent wine.
Lovely indoor setting (it was freezing outside) but in the summer outside would be fun.

Plaza Reial

It has been a magical wonderful night with my boyfriend.
For our one but penultimate night in Barcelone we were looking for a great restaurant in this iconic plaza.
The big issue there is that many restaurants are way too overrated and way too touristic.

However, this one blew my mind.

I would kill to go back there :(
