Many good reviews on TripAdvisor and I can only agree. Great food! The only reason why I didn't give 5 stars was a bit poor ventilation. Chefs are cooking close to tables and you can really feel smoke in the air. A nice place to spend evening.

Don't be mislead by the neighborhood of the restaurant or by its design. In Cera 23 we had the best lunch we had in Barcelona.
Great seafood rice plate, the beef was also excellent, and the fish plate was fantastic.
The deserts were also great, and the service was professional and friendly.

When we arrived here, we hadn’t booked so despite their best efforts, we were sat near the entrance on bar stools - this was fine by us so long as we could eat!

The staff were all excellent especially Helga whose 1st day it was - she was genuinely phenomenal and seemed to know about the menu and restaurant well. She was personable, interested in us and dedicated to the restaurant.

Our food was some of the best we have EVER had, in any restaurant. Our starter of pork loin was stunning as was the mozzarella-like cheese with fresh pesto and salad.

Our main meals (both meat based; pork and lamb) were incredibly delicious. We ordered baked potatoes to go with it which was a perfect choice as it needed something extra.

Desserts of French toast and death by chocolate (my explanation doesn’t do it justice!) was an amazing way to end the meal.

The wine was great and the service was simply excellent. All in all, we wish we lived here just to eat here again!

Excellent food, friendly and efficient service despite a full house. Really great value!

The area where the restaurant is located is not perhaps that attractive.

Our last place selected for dinner was Cera23 in the smal Streets of Barcelona a Pearl is hiding.... although full of People from our enterence and till we left. We sat right to the kitchen were the chefs and team were having fun whilst cooking seriously good cooked dishes and at affordable level. The service was in top, the best we had in our 5 days in Barcelona. Good selection of wine, a slightly longer list could be good but not needed.

We Will be back !
