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... More

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... More

Went here for lunch and had the tasting menu. Overall a nice variety of food and combinations paired with wines from the vineyard. Staff was exceptional and helpful. Service was spot on and was able to address all our questions.

We almost didn't get to enjoy this experience. Even though we booked a table two months in advance through their website via the fork, they had no record of our reservations and confirmation. After a bit of a debate, we were offered a table. From there forward, it was a lovely experience with good service. We had 11 courses over... More

We were lucky enough to get a table for Sunday lunch at this beautiful restaurant. Difficult to know where to start because everything was wonderful. The ultra modern restaurant with stunning views overlooking the Cepa 21 vineyards was cool, spacious & comfortable. The staff although almost entirely Spanish speaking were very friendly, professional & described every course slowly & clearly... More

We went after touring Emilio Moro and Cepa bodegas and then enjoyed a fantastic 15 course meal. I recommend the pairing although after tasting a bunch of wine it can be a bit much. The selections were great as were the flavors and food. I don't think I've ever eaten such pretty food. I particularly enjoyed the foie and the... More

Outstanding 15 course tasting meal, 5 star opulence for 55 Euros is very reasonable. Unheard of value anywhere else in Europe. Also, located in the heart of Ribera del Duero, the best wine country in Spain. Had a quiet Monday lunch, we had the whole restaurant to ourselves. We decided to drink the top Cepa 21 tempranillo bottle, my preference... More

You could easily drive right past this place and not have any idea what you missed. Luckily we had a reservation and found it tucked into a vineyard on the main road. We stopped here for lunch during a wine tasting trip through Ribera del Deuro. This was the best meal we had in all of Spain. The chef put... More

This visit was our best gastronomic experience during a 3 week tour of northern Spain also including two visits to 1 star Michelin restaurants and a visit to Azurmendi in Bilbao with its 3 Stars. Cepa21 offers a fantastic meal with superb wines for a very nice price. Only lunch, but staying in Penafiel and Ribeira you need to visit... More
