The appetizer prawns were perfectly battered and huge! The steak was delicious! The seabass was fresh. The wine selection and the strawberry mojito were so amazing but nothing can beat the saffron ice cream dessert! I'm back in the states and I still can't stop thinking about it! For the service, freshness and quality of the food, you just couldn't... More

Last week we made a return visit to Cera 23 after our first visit last November. Once again we were extremely satisfied. While we found all the food delightful we can highly recommend trying the octopus and the volcano rice. Yes you have to navigate a bit to find the place (the maps on my iPhone has worked both times)... More

We booked this restaurant for 2 nights of our 3 night stay as we enjoyed our first meal so much. We booked via email which is probably necessary most evenings. Excellent quality food with frienly staff at a reasonable price.

Booked this after good reviews on Trip Adviser and was not disappointed. The staff couldn't have done anymore to accommodate us and the food was divine. This restaurant is a must.

This place oozes atmosphere. We visited last Thursday evening at 8.30pm having read other reviews and finding it down a small side street. We waited over an hour for a table (booking is recommended!). During our wait we consumed the famous mojitos which were delicious and fun and watched arty animations projected on the wall above the bar. The food... More

We visited this restaurant based on feedback from Trip Advisor and so pleased we did! Our hotel managed to book a table a short notice due to the Barcelona game being on so it was quieter than usual. We both enjoyed a 3 course meal with a bottle of champagne and the legendary blackberry mojito each and the bill came... More

The area which the restaurant is located does not reflect on the restaurant itself. Such great quality and very reasonable prices!! I recommend the raspberry mojito. The service from the guys there was impeccable, could not be any more helpful or friendly. Would definitely go again when I am next in Barcelona. Just wish I had found it sooner!!

We followed the recommendation/ranking in "trip advisor " and booked a table for yesterday evening. It was simply a great evening for us , with a very welcoming and efficient staff , with good (international) atmosphere and over all , with a great food and wine . Starter, main (steak/ravioli) and dessert were simply perfect and we marked Cera23 as... More
