The casual dining space of the grandly named DO Plaça Reial Boutique Hotel Gastronomic is only marginally more expensive than its less accomplished neighbors on the Plaça Reial. The forte here is drinks with tapas, but even the tapas are a welcome respite from most bar food. Imagine a glass of cava with a salad of escarole, mango, and grilled fresh Atlantic bonito, or a glass of Priorat red with griddled calamari and garlic. The DO kitchen also prepares solid comfort food like charcoal-grilled octopus with mashed potatoes, roasted catch of the day with vegetables of the season, or a burger made with Galician veal (the closest thing to American beef you’ll find in Spain). There are many tables inside and (weather permitting) more outdoors, so reservations aren’t an issue.
