“An unexpected surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

From the outside, it looks like nothing special, but don't let the exterior put you off! The warm welcome from the owner, the delicious blackberry mojitos, the prawns in tempura batter with mango dip, the salty steak - it was all wonderful. Just make sure you ask for a taxi to pick you up, as the area is a bit dodgy!

“WOW, WOW, and MORE WOWs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

A HUGE thank you to Rueben & Carlos for a great evening full of fantastic food, moreish mojitos, caliente hombres & an evening full of fantastic memories. We booked our table a few months ago as we knew it would be hard to get a table. On arrival we were greeted with smiles and the Hen for the evening had the famous 'Blackberry Mojito' we were then spoilt with food of an excellent standard in a cosy, warm and relaxed atmosphere. Our meal was a set menu and we couldn't have asked for more, we then moved to the bar afterwards to enjoy more cocktails before the Manager kindly escorted us ladies to our next venue to ensure we didn't get lost. What a service!
I cannot recommend Cera 23 enough and I certainly haven't stopped talking about it since we left, Thanks so much for an AMAZING evening and out of this world hospitality. I cannot wait for a trip back to Cera 23 oh and Barcelona!

Oh I LOVED the beef & guacamole entrée and also the goats cheese was the best I have ever tasted!

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Various other reviewers mentioned this restaurant was not in the nicest areas but certainly worth the visit. We booked the taxi and off we went.

Completely agree the food here is really good. Service is efficient and friendly and the place was packed. Brilliant atmosphere and everyone was enjoying their meal and plates were left very empty indeed.

Well worth the visit
