Great food, excellent service

The house wine was also very good. The place did seemed busy, probably a bit of the "Tripadviser effect". We... read more

The chef cooks behind a counter and writes the orders on the tiles . The food is simply very very delicious ! And the service is very friendly an quick.we enjoyed... More

We came by this restaurant through trip advisor on our visit to Barcelona last summer! The food, atmosphere and drinks were great! And the service too was very good. I would absolutely recommend this place if you go to Barcelona.

Lovely starter main and desert. Not easy to find down a small side road but worth the search. The only negative comment is that the red and white square effect wallpaper on one of the walls wasn't pleasing to the eye if you're unfortunate enough to be placed sitting opposite it, note to owner maybe worth changing decor

Great atmosphere, fantastic food, portions are too big thought. The risotto ai funghi was delicious and all ingredients are top quality. Highly recommended, we'll be back shortly.

As it was early Thursday night the place was a little quiet so we had a good chat with the co owner. The service was so good and friendly we decided to come back... More

Booked a table for lunch on Sunday since Cera 23 was the only one of our to go-places that was open on sundays. Wasn't too busy, but I guess if we would have gone there for dinner it would have been different. Seems that Cera 23 has been on best 1% of Barcelona restaurants for years and it absolutely deserves... More

I came here on the recommendation of a friend. After feeling a bit lost, we were happy to find the restaurant and really pleased with the food. It was all extremely good quality - not your typical spanish meal, but amazing nonetheless. The tuna tartar was fantastic as was the tomato tower appetizer - and the burrata with sun-dried tomatoes... More
