We visited Cera 23 on a Friday night - we did make a reservation, which seemed necessarily as the place was very full. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We ordered the prawns and beer fillet for starters. They were fantastic - reminded me...More

Was given a recommendation to visit this little gem. I was given the recommendation that day and when we landed in Barcelona we phoned the restaurant to see if they could fit us, a party of 7, in for food. They did. And were we...More

This place was recommended to us, so we didn't bother to look it up online. We thought we were going to a tapas place, so we were a bit surprised when we saw the menu and weren't sure we would get something to suit us...More

Loved this restaurant - everything about it. The service was beyond brilliant, the food delicious, the blackcurrant cocktail out of this world. We had a child with us and every cocktail and special drink was made non alcoholic for him. The mushroom risotto was amazing,...More

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

I think so, yes. Just ask the staff to call a taxi for you right when you finish.

Yes, just make sure you have reservations. They turn away people without reservations all the time.
