Mediterranean cuisine with fresh top quality products, from which the client can select the fresh fish and seafood they wish, and we will grill it or prepare it Andalucia style; one pays according to the weight of the product and we serve this at the table.

One of the freshest seafood meals I've ever had. You can choose what you want off the display and they will prepare it for you. Simple preparation and delicious food thanks to the fresh ingredients. The lobster was almost too fresh (we got to see it before...). We had two bottles of wine for lunch which were really reasonably priced and had a fantastic meal overall.

Although you can pick your fish by weight, the house paella is soo good, do not miss it. We asked to deviate from the standard house paella (which is not the normal Barcellona style), and they cooperated. What a meal! Don't miss this place. Moderate prices but worth it.

On our quest to find the perfect paella on our brief 4 night stay in Barcelona we stumbled upon Mariscco. Initially we saw it in our hotel provided guide to Barcelona and I must say we were doubtful and hesitant to fall into another tourist trap. Gladly we had one of the best paella’s either of us has tasted.
The freshness of their ingredient’s is unquestionable once you see the big counter inside the restaurant displaying all of the fresh seafood they undoubtedly use, including some of which is live.
The setting of the restaurant is Placa Reial, a large square/plaza of restaurants providing a perfect people watching spot 2 minutes off La Rambla.
Give it a try on your visit and I highly recommend the Lobster paella.

Visited Mariscco after reading reviews and was pleasantly surprised. Fresh seafood and lobster cooked before your eyes. Extremely helpful staff and attentive owner made us both wish to return!!! Wow. Get the mussels or clams in sauce marinara.

This restaurant offers a wide variety of fish and seafood that you choose upon entry. You choose the way you want it cooked and they bring it to your table. You pay by the weight. They also have paella and other cooked dishes. Nice modern decoration and acceptable service. Good quality-price relationship. We paid 83 euros for 3 people (mussels marinera, razor shells, grilled gambas, grilled squid, baby fish omelette, grilled monkfish) including tomatoed bread, beer and white wine.
