Suggestions for N. Portugal, Galicia, & Barcelona?

Two New Yorkers seeking some outstanding, non-touristy restaurant recommendations for a month in in northern Portugal and Galicia, Spain. Also, Barcelona.

We won't have a car, so places that are easy via public transport are appreciated.

No tourist traps (unless they're absolutely delicious) and no overly expensive scene restaurants (is John Malkovich's place in Lisbon really worth our time?) unless they're worth the hype.... Looking for hole-in-the-wall cheap to the upper range of moderate in terms of price.

PORTUGAL:
We seek: good value traditional and regional Portuguese; simple seafood lunches; worthwhile (but not prohibitively expensive) modern and upscale Portuguese; food from former colonies Mozambique/Cape Verde/Angola/Sri Lanka/Goa in the following cities. Good, local, cheapish wine and beer bars are also a plus. :

CITIES: Lisbon, Peniche, Obidos, Coimbra, Porto, Guimarães, Amarante

SPAIN:
We seek: good value traditional Gallego; simple seafood lunches; pintxos/tapas; worthwhile (but not prohibitively expensive) modern and upscale Gallego; Basque food. Good, local, cheapish wine and beer bars are also a plus. :

CITIES: Vigo, Santiago..., A Coruña, Cambados, Betanzos, surrounding fishing villages worth seeing

BARCELONA only: We seek: good value traditional Catalan; paella, tapas, simple seafood lunches; worthwhile (but not prohibitively expensive) modern and upscale Catalan; molecular gastronomy joints worth splurging on (obviously, El Bulli is too booked/expensive/hard to get to for us...). Good, local, cheapish wine and beer bars are also a plus.

Thanks!
