Just a quick review. We went last week, had deep fried prawns between us, then beef cheek for my partner and monkfish for me. WARM THE PLATES!!!! Every dish came on a cold plate. Not so much of an issue with the prawns, but the main meals were lukewarm at best by the time we received them. I had a... More

Thank god I've found that restaurant via tripadvisor, because otherwise I we wouldn't have found it. Everything was just perfect. Justifiable in the top 10. The service was outstanding and the waiters always open for a little chat. No hustle there. We could have eaten appetizers all night long, but had to go on with (sadly to say) just ONE... More

We went on a Tuesday with no reservation and the restaurant was full. But the staff there was too friendly and they offer us a seat on the bar bar for a drink until they have a free table. Food was excellent and the cocktails amazing. Try white sangria and blueberry mojito!

My only thing is how difficult it is too find. Make sure you use google maps. It took us around 20 minutes to find. You will find it tooked in to a straight which looks like indian town or something. But don't be put off. We had to comeback the following day as it was booked out. The food was... More

This was an interesting experience. Walking to the restaurant I wondered where we were going. Upon arrival we were cheerfully greeted and led to a back room to a corner, cramped table for 6 under a blaring speaker. So basically, I could not move or hear anything all dinner long. I did have delightful drinks; a blackberry mojito and another... More

Went here on a recent visit to Barcelona after reading the Tripadvisor reviews. It was a last minute plan and they managed to fit us in, although have been told its best to book in advance as they are generally busy - proof in the restaurant being packed even at 11pm. The service was fabulous, with everyone really making an... More

Cera 23 is a nice restaurant with a solid menu and good service. It is located in the Raval neighborhood, which some regard as less safe than others in Barcelona. It is a short walk from the Gothic area, Born and Eixample. We passed on the appetizers but not on the Blackberry Mojito, which, indeed is worthwhile as mentioned in... More

This place is awesome. My girlfriend and I went here on one of our first nights in Barcelona only to find that the kitchen had closed (it was midnight on a Sunday). The owner could not have been more pleasant and told us to come back in a few days and recommended their signature cocktail, the blackberry mojito. It did... More

Well, it's not easy to find such a great restaurant with such a good value. The place is located on small alley, a bit tricky to find. Inside cozy and unpretentious. The menu well balanced with quite a few very good dishes. Try the beef cheeks! The wine list provides a good variety at good prices. Strongly recommended

Having read all the excellent reviews I was so delighted to phone at 6pm and be offered a table at 10pm on a Friday night. On arrival however they had no record of my booking but eventually we were placed on high stools near the entrance which were neither comfortable or intimate. The starters which took about 30 mins to... More
