Went to this place solely from reading great reviews here on TA but was hugely disappointed. The food was nothing but OK, the service was OK, but our waiter was obviously very stressed and there wasn't an atmosphere where we could relax. I'm not saying it was a very bad experience, but it was FAR from as good as the... More

In Barca somewhat unexpectedly with my partner. We rang Cera in the afternoon but it was fully booked, as were all of the top listings on TA, after a visit to Montjuïc cable car and the Font Magica we popped in on Cera late evening, about 10, to find it as busy as one would expect. However, the maître d... More

Loved this restaurant! Good service, food is great and their blackberry mojito is the best drink I've ever tasted - and seen. Enjoy!

Cera 23 is a really cute place in the no less pleasant Sant Antoni neighbourhood. They serve gorgeous food, simple things well done, almost in a French way, if you will, and with good products, like great meat and fine wine. I simply wish all restaurants were this committed and passionate, because we really had a lovely time there. Highly... More

We booked this restaurant in advance and we're glad we did as it got very busy later. Although the restaurant itself didn't open until 7.30, we we're welcome to drink at the bar until they were ready. We had a lovely meal; my tempura prawns were perfectly cooked with a lovely sauce and my husband absolutely adored his octopus (it... More

This place is popular for a reason. I usually don't write reviews but we enjoyed ourselves so much I felt it was needed. The front staff were very friendly, and even on an extremely busy Monday night were accommodating to us even though there was a mix up reservation (which was completely our fault, if you want to make a...

Great good and great service. The steak was amazing. Couldn't really fault anything about it. Make sure you ring and reserve a table beforehand if you intending to come. I went on a Monday night and it was packed.

Food was great, the service was great, also their mojitos was great though did the service lack a little bit at the end and there was a little "accident" that I don't want to go in to details about that shouldn't happen in a restaurant but they managed to solve the problem pretty good! Overall would go back, though is... More
