“Well worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

I visited Cera 23 with a small group of friends to celebrate a "special" birthday. My choice was based on previous favourable reviews and it was great to see that they were right! We would never have found the restaurant otherwise but it is worthwhile visiting. The welcome was warm, the food was scrummy and we had lots of laughs. Thanks to Ruben and the rest of the staff for a great night :)

“Girls Weekend - Good Food / Wine / Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We saw the reviews on Trip advisor and decided to give it a try. Managed to get in without a booking but next time would definitely book. The staff were brilliant, explaining dishes, recommending wine and very attentive, they were also very easy on the eye.
Small place with limited menu but we had a lovely meal. And yes the mojitos are amazing. They also make any cocktail you want or ask the bar man for a special.

“Good find in barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Excellent food and service, very reasonable prices. The staff are very accommodating. Limited menu but we tried several items and all were very good. Small place so fill up very quickly, don't try to get in without a reservation. The blackberry mojito is their signature drink, make sure you order it, very yummy.

“Good food, drinks and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Reasons for going:
- an amazing bar and bartender. He will make you an amazing blackberry mojito. Try it! I've never tasted anything like this.
- dimmed lights and a very romantic atmosphere.
- great prices. Even a bottle of wine was under 20€.
- great starters and main courses. Try the sirloin steak
- friendly staff

But:
- as always, make reservations! Dont rely on a walk inn. The best restaurants in Barclona gets packed.
- sit next to the kitchen and it will get noisy. Try to ask for a table near the bar.
- not always easy to find. Bring your phone and use google maps. Always irritating when you're having trouble finding the restaurants.
