    Delicious flavors in the food we selected: hidden gem salad, prime wellington, pan con tomatoes, and paella mixta. One of my friends only commented that she wished there was more saffron in the paella.

    I don’t go to Spanish restaurants since I can make few dishes and have all the authentic ingredients for them. I went for a friend’s birthday and everything was delicious and service was great. Restaurant was busy and everyone seemed to be enjoying it

    Atmosphere is vibrant. Food quality is ok. Ordered octopus which was overcooked. Mixed Paella was tasty. Surprised to see superpremium wines in a restaurant of this quality. Also surprised to see the service included (20%) and a line in the bill asking for additional tip (!). I guess many patrons will be tipping 40% without noticing..

    Went to Teleferic Barcelona to celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary. Our waitress and the bussing staff were phenomenal, attentive and extremely friendly. Those in El Merkat we’re super friendly as well and helpful in suggesting the paella kit as they assumed that’s what we were trying to buy when asking for a paella pan. Food was very good (definitely would eat again) - we had the oysters and the octopus tapas, the prime Wellington, the la porca, the lobster paella and the dessert trio. All the food was amazing although the plating of la porca dish didn’t feel as great as the other dishes.

    Teleferic is a large restaurant with, I believe, 3 locations and the experience can vary depending on the time of day and how busy they are. On my last visit to the Palo Alto location for a late lunch everything was very good across the board (service, food, ambience). Good Spanish foid and tasty, upscale cocktails. Don’t miss the Jamon Iberico! Probably the best you will find outside of Spain.

    This was my third time here. The first time was absolutely amazing with the food and the service; the second time was good but last night the service was bad. And to think that a 20% tip is automatically tacked on the check, the service should at least be worth the tip! I think that the 20% automatic added tip is not a good thing coz even if the service is bad they still get rewarded.

    Excellent food and abundant outdoor seating. Food didn’t feel rushed yet we got out in plenty of time for an event at Stanford. Sangria, Pulpo snd Paella shouldn’t be missed. A little hard to track down a server for water refills. Might be nice to have carafes on the tables.

    The Main lobster paella did not have much flavor - the rice was blend and it felt the sea food was just added on the top at the end.

    It was over 100 degrees outside. The door to the restaurant was open and the air conditioning was broken inside. I’d say it was at least 85 degrees inside, which made dinner miserable. I didn’t even want to stay to eat. I also wrote in the reservation that it was a birthday celebration for my husband, which the staff did nothing about. Meanwhile other tables got sung to and dessert with a candle.
