“Value for money”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

This restaurant is a bit away from the main street but it is not difficult to find with the tripadvisor map. It opens at 8pm in the evening when we were there at around 8:15pm, there was only one couple inside the restaurant. The seafood choices were plenty and the price indicated already include the cooking with no extra charge. We did not take the lobster paella which cost 18 euro per persons (min. 2 persons). The razor clam, octopus and clam we have chosen were simply tasty. But the fresh osyters were simply. It seems that they don't know how to open the osyter, the broken shell left inside the oysters which spoilt the oysters.

“Great fish dinner”
Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

We just enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Mariscco at the placa reial. Showed up at 7:30 without reservation and were seated immediately. A little wait Before getting attention from a waiter but after that, service flowed nicely. Our fish was fresh and delicious, grilled veges were great as was seafood chowder. Highly recommend this restaurant in Barcelona.

“Could do better”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We read the reviews on trip advisor before deciding to have dinner in this restaurant. The food was very good overall, although my daughter's fish wasn't tasty. The rest was nice although some plates came so fast that we thought they had been cooked for someone else!.
We preferred to sit inside, the atmosphere was better since outside the plaza is very busy.
I didn't like the service, they were fast but unfriendly and without a smile. Next time we're in Barcelona I'll look for another seafood restaurant.

“Fish fiasco at Mariscco!!!”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

On booking this restaurant on line, I had 3 e mails confirming this for 7.30pm on a Tuesday evening. However, on arriving at 7.25 pm, we were told that is didn"t open until 8pm??!! VERY confusing!! We waited until it opened, and we were starving!!!
We chose our fish at a counter, which all looked delicious, it was weighed and went off to the kitchen to be cooked. Our menu was snatched away from us, so we were unable to choose a starter and nothing was explained to us as what we could have with our fish.
We chose the crab which was tasteless, the monk fish which seemed like it wasn"t cooked properly, squid which was rubbery and chewy and sea bass which was just ok, nothing special. We asked for some chips, because nothing else came with the fish. These were very nice. No vegetables at all!!
The restaurant was lovely inside, modern, all decked out in black and white, but we were totally let down by the food, after reading so many good reviews on here!!
We were very disappointed and will certainly NOT be going back here!!
