I booked Cera 23 for my husband's birthday dinner. First of all, the blackberry mojito was delicious! We ordered the octopus and seared tuna (from entree menu) as starters and black rice with seafood and lamb as entrees. Not only was everything delicious, We can tell the Spanish flavors in each dish! Price was also unbeatable. Must try if you... More

I do lots of research on the best restaurants in Barcelona and have been wanting to try Cera 23 for a while. Luckily on my recently business trip to Barcelona we were staying in a hotel just a few minute walk away. I took some work colleagues to dinner and was so happy with our choice. The restaurant was buzzing... More

This is a cute little restaurant with very tentative owner. And oh they serve delicious food! The menu is not too adventurous but I appreciate the chef's focus on combining awesome ingredients and make simple food taste great. I felt so satisfied after the meal and felt great with the service that we received.

Great service and very good food for right price. So nice experience with my wife and daughter, absolutely I recommend. I am sure I will have Napue gin in my hand next time I will visit as staff was looking for every feedback to develop the experience. So great attitude, keep on this way.

We went as a group of 4 to celebrate my birthday, the food was excellent and so was the service and atmosphere. Can't recommend this high enough. Also from previous reviews I was tempted to try the blackberry mojitos and was so pleased i did, heavenly. You must book though as the secret is out.

Cera 23 is a small cosy restaurant with a bustling atmosphere. The service was friendly and helpful and the waiter spoke reasonably good English (my Spanish is awful!). The food was amazing! There were 4 of us eating and we all had different dishes, everyone was very pleased. I had the lamb which was a winner for sure! Also worth... More

We came to Cera 23 to have our last meal of a quick 3 day getaway in Barcelona! The Blueberri mojitos were really good and the Food as well as the Ambiance were spot on. It's a rather small restaurant and kinda hidden in a narrow street but well worth the visit! we'll definitely be back! Gracias!

Amazing friendly staff welcome you into their little food heaven. We ordered their famous blackberry mojitos and they were the best we have ever had!! We ordered the prawns, octopus and tuna tartar which was beautiful. Then we went for the prawn tagliatelle and seafood risotto which was delicious. I highly recommend this place, I'd go back tomorrow if I... More

Just spent 2 nights in Barcelona with 8 work colleagues. We ate at Viana the first night and Cera23 the second. The welcome at Cera was warm and friendly and the service was absolutely first rate. The food, though good, wasn't particularly special and simply not in the same league as at Viana and this was disappointing given that Cera... 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.
