Visited on recommendation of the hotel and overall enjoyed the visit however its 'tripadvisor rating' is out of line with the overall quality. I think because of this our expectations were so high they could not be achieved. I don't want to be a misery guts and the people were very pleasant however my wife had prawns which were covered...

Found this place through TripAdvisor and it proved to be a true gem. Wonderful blackberry mojitoes to start with followed by food that was a delight to the eye as well as the palate. The black rice with seafood was awesome and so was thw shrimp tempura. Very friendly staff. Can highly recommend it.

Ate here in late January 2017 and despite the not so pretty location in El Raval it was really quite special! Nice design, funky and interesting. Steak is very good!

We decided to visit this restaurant after looking on trip adviser and we were not disappointed. The Tuna Tarta was delicious, as was the Lamb. we were too full to have desert, the couple on the next table managed to have them and they looked good. The price was really reasonable - I would recommend this restaurant.

Having sought out Cera 23 a few years ago and really enjoyed the contemporary cuisine we visited again (booking weeks beforehand) to visit with friends. The food, service and ambiance where, again, fabulous! Interesting food with great delivery and flavours. As classically trained chefs ourselves, my wife and I LOVE this place. Not cheap but great value for a memorable... More

A cozy Galician restaurant with a short & fantastic menu of starters & main courses. The atmosphere was great and it is very busy during the dinner hour, got some luck to walk-in for the last table. Picked Tuna Tartar, Ox's fillet Tataki and Cevraiche to start with, main courses were Beef's cheek, Ravioli with foie and Beef fillet, gotta... More

We arrived at the restaurant without booking but they managed to squeeze us in and we were so glad they did. The atmosphere was buzzing and felt authentic Spain. The food was very enjoyable. All the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Would visit again.

While starting in Barcelona, we wanted to sample some excellent Spanish cuisine, we looked on Trip Advisor and came across Cera 23. When the taxi driver dropped us off, I have to admit we did wander whether we had done the right thing as the area did look a little 'rough'. I don't wish to offend but it did look... More

Literally don't know what to say the place itself is lovely inside feels more fine dining than others in Barcelona. The food was gorgeous and not like anything I've had before, cooked to perfection! Great helpful staff and atmosphere was chilled out but lovely to. Would definitely recommend and return if I get the chance! Two starters two mains 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.
