“Street Vendors”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Lots of restaurants lined the plaza and it seemed like a nice place to eat. While I was there I saw lots of street vendors selling things.

“Very good”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Nice place in Las Rambla! Nice small restaurants with good dishes, and a small restaurant, can not remember the name(on the right side when come from Las Rambla) with homemade soup! The day menu is 7-8 euro. Clean kitchen, nice staff and good prices.

“A pleasant break from La Rambla”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

We stumbled upon this beautiful plaza one early morning while walking on La Rambla. It was quiet and there were only a few other tourists there and had a very nice feel to it. It's truly lovely with a fountain in the centre, the palm trees all around, beautiful architecture, and lots of restaurants/cafes to sit it. We had a very simple but delicious breakfast in one of those cafes and just took in the atmosphere. And even though it was mid November the weather was sunny and comfortable.

“Great place to take a breather”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Placa Reial, literally King's Square in Spanish. It is right at La Rambla. The plaza is packed with eating and drinking joints. It offers you a good opportunity to take a breather after a walk along La Rambla and to admire the beauty of the building architecture.

In winter, the restaurant uses gas burner to heat up the place. Watch out. Not to sit too close to the gas burner. I saw a gas burner caught fire and had to be extinguished quickly.

Please also watch out for drunkards especially at night or when their supported football team lost a match.

“Lovely architecture and place to sit, eat and watch the world go by”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

This is just adjacent to las Ramblas and had a totally different atmosphere. It is a fantastic place to sit outside in the many restaurants that line the square for just drinks or some food. Eating outside on the 1st November here was a lovely feeling, knowing that it was cold and raining at home! Worth a visit.
