Wow wow wow... We actually stumbled upon this place before reading all the reviews and they were not wrong. The blackberry mojito was gorgeous visually and tasted sparklingly delicious. The ceviche, beef cheek, and especially the lamb was spectacular beyond words. And yes the service was uber friendly. All in all we can not possibly ask for a better meal... More

By far, one of the best restaurants I've experienced in Barcelona. The blackberry mojito is a must-try and the food is outstanding, especially the tuna tartar.

During our walk to the restaurant, we were a bit thrown off about the vibe of the neighborhood.. it wasn't the prettiest locations we had seen. Our original intention was to go to Arume. However, once we arrived, the manager said they were completely full but quickly directed us to their other location - Cera 23. Although we could not... More

Ceviche was an excellent starter. The staff were super friendly. Recommend making as reservation. The cost with drinks is approx 35euro pp. Enjoy the... More

We found this place when we were looking through trip advisor where to go for dinner. They managed to squeeze us in and I am SO happy they did! It was my birthday and without fail the BEST birthday meal I could have asked for. Make sure you order the beef cheek...you will not regret it! The only point I... 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.
