    This is my second time coming here. The food is fantastic and the service is really top notch. I’m really impressed. It was a little noisy, but nothing too bad. The ambience is also really cool.

    We are not regulars at this restaurant. Hostess treated us like intruders. Very uppity bordering on outright rude. Not necessary. ALL patrons should’ve be meeted, greeted, treated as if they are long time friends. The rest of the waiters and servers were great and super friendly.

    Place was packed on a saturday night. Highly recommend getting a reservation. Food was very good and presentation was beautiful. We had the oysters, crab croquettes, tuna tacos, salmon tartare, gem salad and octopus (so tender and flavorful) everything was delicious! Then we ordered paella negra and secreto paella. Both were delicious but beware the plate looks huge but very shallow so an order is typically for 1-2 people. Secreto paella had lots of meat and so flavorful. Finally for desert we got the churros and the french toast. Churros was undercooked inside. Deserts were just ok. We were celebrating my mom’s birthday and they gave a complimentary desert with a candle to blow. Overall we were satisfied and would come back again. Just a reminder 20% gratuity is automatically added and server was very transparent about this.

    It is my second time to Teleferic Barcelona (first time at the Palo Alto location) and it does not disappoint. my selection included: Iberian Oyster - Fresh caught oyster, Bloody Mery gazpacho & Iberian Ham Pulpo Telefèric - Galician octopus, truffle oil & pimentón potato purée La Porca - Pork belly, corn, 'romesco sauce'& mojo verde Paella Negra- Squid ink, scallops, octopus, gulf shrimp & clams Calamari special- calamari cooked two ways, friend and stuffed with squid ink, chill oil and quinoa Our favorite was the Galician octopus dish, nice balanced flavor with good textural contrast between the puree and the octopus. The squid ink dishes are good though too much of a good thing can overpower your pallet (it is our own menu choice so no fault to Teleferic Barcelona, just a personal reminder for our next visit) Overall the dishes are amazing and the service was superb and we will definitely visit again.

    I go to teleferic quite often but I haven’t been there around 2 months, and yesterday when I went it was the worst food I have ever had. We ordered the pulpo (my favourite dish) and there has been a clear change on the dish portion. We got a super small pulpo leg and very little pure! It was not the usual. As well, our paella was half burned (it was not sucarrate since I know how that is. It was actual burn) and the dose was as well way little than all previous times! They clearly adjusted the dish portions but kept the same price! The servers at the bar were always talking about their private life and not providing a profissional environment! It used to be one of my favourite places but yesterday was very bad!

    Teleferic Barcelona was very good. All the food we ordered was delicious. We had the crab croquettes, bread with tomato, tuna taquitos, salmon tartare and we ended up with the black paella which was amazing. In the past, I have had it and it has been too salty, but this one was great. Just right. The only thing was that the service was a little slow, but they were very nice and pleasing. Will definitely return

    Ok, it’s a little rushed, and very noisy, but the food at this place is fantastic and never disappoints. The cocktails are works of art. I don’t know where they find their staff, but they are always cheerful and competent, plus all seem to hail from Spanish speaking countries. Always a great meal..

    So I selected the anniversary option on special occasion, also clearly put the occasion in the notes option. It was me and my wife’s 4 year wedding anniversary, so at the end an employee came with a dessert asking who’s birthday it was….it was pretty disappointing other then that everything else was amazing.

    This is my 5th visit at this restaurant with family and friends. We have a visiting friend from North Carolina and took the rest of friends here to dine. Alejandro, who was our server, was very nice and pleasant to answer my friends’ inquiries on foods. We had very good cocktails and the food was sumptuous. It was busy and noisy but I guess it was lunch hour for people who were working in the neighborhood. We finished at least 2.5 hours and very few people stayed by then. My friends said we will return but maybe around 1:30 pm.

    Most of the tapas were excellent, especially the Watermelon Gazpacho and the tuna tapa. The chicken empanadas were lacking in filling and flavor and the crab tapa was too full of potato and the crab wasn't able to be tasted. The wine were chose was Don Jacobo Rioja 2015 Reserva and was excellent. The wine prices were quite reasonable by the glass, and the pour was generous. We will go back for sure.

    The food is outstanding. The menu looks deceptively simple, but the execution truly shines. Cocktails are also of exceptional quality. The gin and tonics are most unusual and simply mind-blowing. The outside sitting is okay, but it's located in a very busy town and country plaza.
