The location is stunning and the restaurant may have a reputation for seafood but the vegetable paella was inedible. An overwhelming taste of tomato, vinegar and soggy, overcooked rice that took ages to arrive. We didn't eat it and when the bill came they never...More

This restaurant was our worst experience during our recent vacation to Spain. The sangria and cocktails are diluted, the paella we ordered was without salt and the sea-food smelt rancid. When we complained to the manager, he told us that that is how they prepared...More

Food was very over priced for the quality. We waited over an hour for our food and when you are already hungry this feels like a very long time! We'd have much better food in Barcelona so I wouldn't settle for this tourist trap again....More

I'm not someone who has particularly high standards when it comes to dining but I can honestly say the food is terrible here. The paella was like a soup with rice, an excessive amount of salt was in this paella and it had no taste...More

Paella tastes like gravy and rice. No flavor whatsoever. There were around 6 shrimps in the dish cut in half with basically only the shell left. It was as though they had taken the meat out to use in other dishes. Staff were extremely rude...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.
