Mirando al Mar | New Year Celebration

Another year ends, another year begins. Everyone is busy preparing to celebrate it. Some people are so excited, preparing the foods, buying fireworks, but others are busy at work. 

If you are living in the Philippines, I am sure you are so busy and excited for New Year´s Eve. I also miss the noise and smoke from fireworks. The noise of kids playing with their horn. And all the sweat we get from cooking tons of food in the kitchen. 

But if you are living abroad, everything is different. You are going to hear the noice of fireworks for few minutes. And the noice on the street with definitely make you deaf. Some are lucky to have a proper dinner with all the members of the family at exactly New Year´s Eve. But not all are that lucky. Some are waiting for their family member from work to come home. But others arrive when everyone is already asleep. 

In our case, we had to celebrate the ¨New Year´s Eve¨ on the afternoon of January 1. A simple lunch to celebrate it is enough. Sometimes, we need to deal with hoping to be together for the rest of the year than for just one night. We may have different ways on how we celebrated, but the most important thing is to celebrate the rest of the year together with our family. 

Mirando al Mar
Living in Spain makes you feel good to celebrate any occasion with Spanish delicacies. And Mirando al Mar never dissapoint us. We already celebrated birthdays, or just simple days in this restaurant. 

It is located inside the shopping center Maremagnum which had a big part on my younger years because my family and friends used to come here a lot of times for it is just near in our neigborhood. 

Mirando al Mar has tons of Spanish foods to offer. From first plate to dessert. Best to celebrate any occasions or just simple days. 

Having a good ambiance is a big point. Mirando al Mar gives you tons of background for photo taking using the four sides of the restaurant. And a big point for its view, port side. 

If you reserve through the app of ¨The Pork¨ you can get discounts depending on the hour of your reservation. We reserved for 5 p.m. and we got 50% off.

It is Christmas and we can see a lot of Christmas Displays everywhere. Knowing that Spain is a Catholic country, for sure you will feel the spirit of Christmas. It is one of the best place to come with family and have a bonding time together. 

Another year starts, let us all use this for a better purposes. It is time to renew ourselves, have our plans and make them come true. It is a year full of blessings so be prepared. In 2020, it is more of you Jesus. 

¨Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; not it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert¨

CentOnze Restaurant Review | Le Méridien Barcelona

Las Ramblas in one of the signature places in Barcelona, Spain. It is a good experience to have lunch or dinner in this area. And one of the most attractive restaurants is The CentOnze Restaurant. The CentOnze Restaurant is connected with the 5 star hotel Le Méridien.

CentOnze Restaurant is located in Las Ramblas 111, Barcelona Spain. It is near Le Meridien, Hotel 1898, Nike, Decathlon, etc. 

If you are walking around in Las Ramblas or near by places such as Plaza Catalunya, Calle Pelayo, or Barrio Gotico, you should not miss eating in this restaurant for it is just a few steps from those said famous destinations in Barcelona Spain.

But if you are coming away from these said places, there are two nearest Metro Station Stops such as Plaza Catalunya and Liceu.
CentOnze Restaurant

CentOnze Restaurant offers different variety of foods from Starters, Tapas, Meats, Fish and as well as different drinks. You can check directly in their website the choices of foods that they offer.

A La Carte
Here are some of their A La Carte:


CentOnze Restaurant also offers Menu. You can take a starter, main and dessert for only 16.50€ for weekdays, and 22.90€ for weekends. It is good if you have a tight budget and yet you want to experience eating in this classy and many to offer restaurant.

If you really want to relax, this is the best place for you. The ambience inside the restaurant is relaxing, calm and classy at the same time. It also gives the view of the famous Las Ramblas. You will see people and car passing by and thanks to its soundproof, you will not get distracted nor disturbed by them. 

It is also a good choice of restaurant for couples for it also gives a romantic vibes inside. And they have big table for family and friends. 

I would like to also give a point the smell inside the restaurant. They offer seafoods and sometimes, most of the restaurant I went to, I always smell something stinky that I do not like it. But CentOnze gives you a clean smell and vibes that you will not get irritated about.

Le Pop Cocktail Bar

CentOnze Restaurant do not just offer meals but they also have their different signature drinks that you should not miss!
Comfort Room

One of the many things I check in any restaurants is their comfort room. I can say based on my experience that it is really hard to find a restaurant with a clean comfort room. Good to say that CentOnze indeed has a clean comfort rooms. For sure it is because the restaurant is connected with Le Meridien Hotel which is a plus point for them.


Another tips for you, readers, you can have up to 50% discount in their A La Carte just by downloading ¨The Fork¨ on your mobile phones. By that, you will get notificated whenever they have promos.
