Terrific experience in every way. The food was magnificent. The service was superb.

I loved how they asked for proof of vaccination before entering. I don't want to subject myself, and those dining with me to unvaccinated diners.

Their restaurant. Their rules. It's no different than refusing service to men without shirts. Go Teleferic Barcelona, Go! We will be back soon!

Patatas Bravas and Brussels Sprouts were wonderful. The lobster paella was hugely disappointing in volume, taste, everything. There was barely one lobster tail sitting on top. Definitely not worth $58!!!
Would only recommend for tapas and drinking, for people who don’t mind a lot of noise.

It was a birthday celebration that wasn’t much to celebrate as far as our dinner was concerned. We did, however, have an exceptional waiter from Barcelona who waited on us. This is a very loud and noisy restaurant with hit and Miss quality of food preparation. This was our second visit, the first time was terrific but we’re not planning on going back again. There are to many options available in our area.

Everything we tried was outstanding. We particularly liked the crab croquettes and the taquitos de tuna. The service was outstanding. My husband has an aversion to mayonnaise and our waiter made sure all of the dishes for him were without aioli.
Wonderful place for lunch. lovely patio, but unfortunately we were inside due to the air quality. Highly recommend this place.

Food was delicious, service was friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was great too, has a nice chic urban vibe you don’t really see in Walnut Creek.

Only comment was the food came out fast and we felt a little rushed (though the food was so good we didn’t mind that much!). Next time we’ll just stagger and pace our orders a bit- will definitely return.

The experience was excellent. All the food items were terrific - kale corn salad was very tasty, the crab croquettes & the taquitos de tuna was also good. The highlight of the lunch was the veggie paella! It was finger-licking delicious. The cauliflower, artichokes & mushrooms were cooked perfectly. Highly recommend it. For dessert, we tried the torrija. It was so-so. Wouldn’t order it again. Would definitely love to go back again. Don’t skip the paella!

Unfortunately I think Covid has been a terrible influence for all Restaurants. Arrived 4:40 for our 4:45 res. Sat immediately and were rushed from the time we sat down. As a small plate restaurant it’s typically a little more relaxed. Within 10 minutes of ordering all food was delivered to the table. Crab croquettes were cold almost like they had been sitting, octopus was great as always but cold as well and gazpacho which should be cold was warm. Given now the 20% gratuity is automatically added service seems to have taken a back seat to “turn them and burn them”. The hostesses were hovering and appeared to be doing their part to keep everyone moving. We will go back but probably not on a weekend night and see if it’s a little more relaxed.
