Can't say much more than what the other reviews have said! Loved the blackberry mojito and the volcano of black rice. It was like paella with a twist. Service was excellent. Make a reservation a day in advance.

This was an interesting experience. Walking to the restaurant I wondered where we were going. Upon arrival we were cheerfully greeted and led to a back room to a corner, cramped table for 6 under a blaring speaker. So basically, I could not move or...More

Cera 23 is a nice restaurant with a solid menu and good service. It is located in the Raval neighborhood, which some regard as less safe than others in Barcelona. It is a short walk from the Gothic area, Born and Eixample. We passed on...More

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

We had the concierge of our hotel call them directly and make a reservation for us. That was the easiest and most secure way to do it I think.
