Cera 23 delivers on every level. First of all communitcation via email was courteous, quick and friendly. Ruben, who took our reservation, met us as we entered and greeted me by name before I opened my mouth (ok so i had 11 family and friends with me so that gave him a clue) and the service with a smile carried on for the all night from all the staff. Service was relaxed and efficient. We sat opposite the open kitchen and watched the dilligent chefs do their stuff. Each dish we had was very good to excellent, from the burgers for the children to steaks and fish dish specials. A modern, fun, vibrant, restaurant without being noisy or impersonal. Superb.

Went to this restaurant for my birthday and was thankful we had reserved a table as it was packed. Food and drinks were great, probably the best we had while in Barcelona (except dessert, don't bother), and the atmosphere of the restaurant was great. Perfect for a night out with friends or a romantic date. The issue we had was with the service. Although they were all very friendly and polite, it just did not seem to function well. First we were ignored when we walked in. Then we ordered a cocktail as an apertif, but the dinner wine was brought out first, and when the cocktail came so did our starter... did not go so well. We felt rushed at first, then once we finished our food they forgot about us completely. We had to ask for a dessert menu after a while of waiting for them to notice. And it took 3 goes at asking for the bill before that came.. and even then getting them to take the payment took several goes.

We picked this place tonight because it was #1 on Trip Advisor, was close to our hotel (Casa Camper) and wasn't over-the-top expensive. What a fun night. Food was good -- a nice break from Tapas. I love Tapas, but it was nice to have my "own" meal. We seemed to be waited on by about 3-4 people. They were all insanely great and fun. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. Our group had two starters: the shrimp, and the ham with potatoes. Both good. For dinner we had the volcano of black rice -- be warned: this is a CRAZY presentation and not for the feint of heart, the special beef with potatoes, The pork special with zucchini (our favorite), the pasta with shrimp. All good. The service and "vibe" is what stood out for us.

Make a reservation well in advance - you won't be sorry! Mojitos and wine were excellent and well priced. Entrees were excellent and service and atmosphere consistent with other reviews! Well worth your time!

Went there upon trip advisor recommendation, and this was a fantastic place. Both meals were great, service was good, but good to reserve in advance.
