We then were seated at the back part of the restaurant and enjoyed a fabulous three course dinner with excellent informal service. A great final night in Barcelona.

Excellent service, warm atmosphere, and very good food. I started with a blackberry mojito, which many people recommended and since there's a place in Miami we go specifically for these I wanted to compare. Cera's mojito more than passed the test - terrific cocktail. I went with the Galician octopus appetizer, which was very substantial, well prepared and flavorful but... More

We booked into here for our second night in Barcelona after reading all of the positive reviews and it was so lovely! The food was very tasty with lovely staff! We also had a couple of drinks later on in the night and the bartender was lovely there! Would definitely recommend it here - if we ever return to Barcelona... More

Delicious food, friendly staff, great chefs. After so many tapas it was refreshing to have a salad with sundried tomatoes and fresh mozzarella as a starter. Truly amazing mozzarella. We also chose a ham and potatoes starter for our group of four. For our main course we ate fabulous mushroom risotto with hints of Roquefort, and a lamb confit. The... More

Delicious food. Attentive owners. With a strange design in a dodgy area. So your heart fills with doubt when u see the decor of the place but then I ate black rice with seafood which I will never forget because it was so delicious. They were kind enough to sing happy bday for my husband. Overall really nice

It is hard to come across and looks like a hole in the wall restaurant. It is a hole in the wall, but the best hole in the wall I have ever entered. The service is awesome. They are very friendly, no snobbery. You can even see them joking around with one another and the kitchen and bar staff. The... More

Ate here on the first night in Barcelona after reading reviews and was not disappointed. Really good food, lovely atmosphere. Worth booking ahead to guarantee a table. The service was great and a good mix of locals and tourists. Only thing to note, I don't eat meat and there wasn't many veggie options - I ended up having all fish... More

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
