One of the best Restaurants ever. We had a eight course lunch menu after the vineyard visit. Absolutely fantastic. Usually these menus start good but fade in the end. Not now! The food just reached new levels with every new dish. The desert was the ultimate ending of the lunch. The desert looked like chorizo, calamari, aioli, blood pudding, eggs and bacon but all dishes were sweet deserts. Fantastic humor:)

What a jewel. We found this by accident. Were told not to miss the restaurant after winery tour. Cepa 21 is a 3 generation family run winery that mixes traditional and modern techniques. The restaurant sits on upper level with great view. Does not have a Michelin star (yet) so is very reasonable. Definitely Michelin star quality. Strong suggest tasting menu.One of the best meals in our recent trip to Spain.

We opted for the grand menu (€60) and unfortunately didn't enjoy the "out there experience" the chefs were trying to capture.
For the North American taste, the items were just too strange.
The space is beautiful - staff very pleasant, but after all we are here for lunch - which was a bomb unfortunately - sorry!
A couple of bites were ok, but overall not good at all.

If touring the Ribera wine area make sure to book this restaurant. We had done a wine tour at their sister winery, the famed Emilio Moro, earlier on. Cepa 21 is about 20 km away and very different in style. On Sundays you can only have a tasting menu, we opted for the smaller one at €45 for about 10 courses. (The bigger one is about €55). Since I was driving I could only have one glass, and I had the excellent Cepa 21. But if you really want to indulge, the wine pairing is only another €10 for an artisanal beer, 2 glasses of wine and 1 dessert wine (a Moscado IIRC). The food: started with some appetisers, including delicious croquettes, a tiny pastry with mashed potatoes, a chocolate "pebble" filled with cheese, a squid sandwich, and our favourite, lobster in a rich seafoody broth. Then came "Autumn" (that's all the menu said). We discovered it to be dried mushrooms, bonito and other root vegetables, over which was poured a cream of pumpkin soup. Followed by another soup, this time fish. We thought we were doing ok, portions were small, but then came the main, a humongous plate of extremely tender, rare steak (the menu listed as cow loin), with a side of delicious creamy potatoes!! After this was the dessert, cheese and "macaroni", followed by chocolate "sausage" to go with your coffee. Needless to say we had to skip dinner. Awesome food, great service with lavish presentations of each course, even though English was not that strong. The menu was in English and we were each given a small card printed with the courses so we could follow.

We booked lunch at Cepa 21 Restaurant because we were touring the winery - so we didn't know what to expect. We were totally surprised and wowed by the quality of the food and the whole experience - after a week of having dined at some of Spain's top restaurants. We opted for the "smaller" tasting menu, which I believe had a mere 10 courses.
This is a white tablecloth restaurant, with top-notch service. Each dish was artfully constructed - a visual treat in addition to being delicious. The staff provided brief explanations of each dish (I believe we were waited on by one of the chefs, as she seemed very invested in our reactions to each course). Some favorites were the suckling lamb croquette, a sort of soup dish simple named "Autum", the "Squids Sanwich" and the Cheesecake (the name does not do it sufficient justice).
Plan on about 2 hours for lunch, and you do not want to miss touring the winery itself.
This was our last winery visit of our tour and was a great example of Spanish Wine Country at its best.
