This is our 4th day in Barcelona and having tried all the tourist traps on La Rambla as well as other frequently visited by tourists restaurants we decided to try this place based on recommendations on this site. We made a reservation by walking by the day before and even though the place was closed we were invited in for... More

It was busy and the atmosphere was good. The meal was good but not brilliant - the special was the ravioli which was too sweet for me. We had reserved in advance and that is advisable as people were turned away

We loved Cera 23. It was so good, we ate here two nights during our 4 night stay. The food is create, delicious and inventive. The service is excellent. The drinks are wonderful (and strong!). The neighborhood...well...it's a little seedy, and not the best to walk at night...but we did it twice, never felt unsafe, and were totally fine. MAKE... More

Appr 140 Eur for a 4 person dinner with starters, main dish (Tuna steak) and desert + wine and water. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Not many tables, so reservation might be a good idea. Booking via Tripadvisor worked out well.

Beef cheek was excellent as was the pork. Shrimp tempura was perfect abd for dessert I couldn't even speak whilst eating the death by chocolate or the... More

From the starters through to the dessert, this was our (my fiancee and I) favorite restaurant in Barcelona and that is saying something because the other two were also exceptional. It is a cozy dark restaurant with lots of candle light and the service was wonderful. The prawn appetizers were freaking delicious and the ceviche was also great. She loved... More

We booked via email and Rueben who confirmed the booking was really friendly and emailed us the night of our booking to check we were coming and welcomed us personally - all the staff were really welcoming and there was a good atmosphere. The food is very unusual - each item on the menu is a mix of different tastes... More

A new nice experience was when popped in Barcelona. My son had booked a restaurant called Cera 23, and good he did, because in the end it was packed, so without a reservation don't even think! The staff was absolutely great and had a good humour among all hussle. Food was excellent and the place is very cosy with a... More

After reading all the excelent reviews, I had high expectations. The envrionment is very nice, a small little place in a quiet little street. My starter was divine, a salad with pork and goji berries. For my main I had a mushroom risotto that was just average. Wine prices are reasonalbe. Overall good experience.
