“Good find in barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Excellent food and service, very reasonable prices. The staff are very accommodating. Limited menu but we tried several items and all were very good. Small place so fill up very quickly, don't try to get in without a reservation. The blackberry mojito is their signature drink, make sure you order it, very yummy.

“Good food, drinks and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Reasons for going:
- an amazing bar and bartender. He will make you an amazing blackberry mojito. Try it! I've never tasted anything like this.
- dimmed lights and a very romantic atmosphere.
- great prices. Even a bottle of wine was under 20€.
- great starters and main courses. Try the sirloin steak
- friendly staff

But:
- as always, make reservations! Dont rely on a walk inn. The best restaurants in Barclona gets packed.
- sit next to the kitchen and it will get noisy. Try to ask for a table near the bar.
- not always easy to find. Bring your phone and use google maps. Always irritating when you're having trouble finding the restaurants.

“Still superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Well worth going to Barcelona just to visit this restaurant. The mojitos are beyond sublime and the food- perfect. Second year in a row to this place, think it will become an annual visit.

“Great stop for travelers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

I'm from the States and our party of 4 was looking for a good place to enjoy our last night in Barcelona. We found Cera 23 tucked away in one of the ally ways and what a find it was!

First off a must have is the Blackberry Mojito. The best mojito I've ever had. Very flavorful and they only use fresh ingredients. We ordered the foi gra and ceviche appetizers and duck confit and rib eye entrees. They were cooked to perfection. Probably not typical Spanish type food, but it was just right for the American palette. I thoroughly enjoyed all the dishes. They also gave us free white russian type shots which was very nice the servers came by to have small talk with us. It was a great experience and I would recommend it for those who have time.

If possible, make a reservation as the place is quite small and gets busy. Luckily we came "Early" around 7pm and were able to grab a table near the bar. Nice and cozy ambiance and walkable distance from Las Ramblas.
