“Great staff, food & cocktails! ”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

We visited this restaurant after reading reviews on trip advisor and it did not disappoint! We were particularly excited about the blackberry mojitos which were definitely worth the wait. Waiters are so friendly (and a few are quite hot) who happily brought us two desserts with candles and sang happy birthday for two of the girls in our group. The general atmosphere is lively and fun. Only tiny complaint is that it did take a long time to be served and for the food to come but it was a busy Friday night and we didn't mind too much as the atmosphere and drinks were so good. The food itself was delicious, would recommmend goats cheese for starters and beef as main. As a chicken lover was disappointed there was none on the menu but alternatives more than made up for it. Would definitely go back even if just for another mojito!!

“very kind bartender”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

On a recent day trip to Barcelona, my husband and I sought this place out after hearing it was good. We were a bit early for dinner service, but wanted to check the place out anyway. The bartender saw us looking about outside the front doors and came to talk with us. We were headed back to the airport to catch a flight and unfortunately were not able to stay until the restaurant actually opened. The bartender was so kind as to go talk to the kitchen staff about whether they might be able to prepare something for us early (we did not ask him to do this). Unfortunately, they had just received their shipment of produce for that nights dinner service and still had quite a bit of prep work to do, and we did not want to be an inconvenience. We'll have to go back to check out the food, but we were appreciative that the staff wanted to accommodate us.

“It was excellent!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

It was perfect food and perfect service. The salad with raspberry was something I couldn't imagine could ever go together but I still cannot forget the taste of it. The stake was exactly as requested. The tagliatelle with prawns was a little fatty but the taste was so intense and it surprised what miracle could be created out of pasta. Starters and mains were perfect, but the deserts were a little disappointing. But apart form that it's the best place to eat in Barcelona.

“Best meal in Barcelona”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Cera 23 had some of the best service, best food and best drinks in Barcelona. While we waited for our table we had delicious drinks at the bar. We both at the specials and the steak was cooked perfectly and the duck magret was phenomenal. It's the perfect amount of food and the service was wonderful. Guillermo was serving us and he was so friendly and helpful. He seemed to be having a great time, which made the atmosphere of the restaurant even better. The guy taking names for reservations remembered my name throughout the meal and always checked to see if we needed anything.

This is a great place for a date night, cosy and great food. There is no way I would go to Barcelona again without going back here.
