Best meal in Barcelona

Had a fantastic evening meal here on a Saturday night. It had been recommended by a friend and unfortunately we didn't do our research on how busy it gets - you must book it!! We ended up not eating until just before midnight. The staff are more than happy for you to wait in the bar though... read more

I have been to Cera 23 twice, once in a party of four, the other time just my girlfriend and me. I have on both visits tasted my companions' dishes, and everything I have tried was tasty. The staff is kind and the atmosphere is relaxed. Great value for money as the quality of food is very high, and the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner which was beautifully presented and deliciious. The staff was very attentive and accomodating. The wine recommendation of Alodia Somontano (Syrah) was excellent. Price very reasonable

Beautiful food and terrific service. This restaurant is a real hidden gem, not to be missed when visiting Barcelona. Service was excellent - dinner had been booked as a birthday surprise for me, and the staff arranged celebrations during the meal, all of which had apparently been arranged via email before our visit. Great customer service, it is clear the... More

We originally decided to go to another tapas bar but they were full and they recommended a small restaurant round the corner which was brilliant!

The food is very good. The vaiters are very nice, but had to wait 20 minutes for the check. And did not get the wine we orderd.

My friend and I visited this restaurant after reading reviews on trip advisor. We are both reasonably fussy eaters and did initially panic when we looked at the menu but it turned out to be one of the best meals we had. I am a vegetarian and the waiter went out of his way to fulfil my request of a... More

Staying in El Raval

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.
