The waitresses were very attentive, polite.
We loved the music.
The food was very well presented.
I was expecting more from the taste of the paellas. Maybe a subjective thing.
The place is great.

Somewhat disappointed. Dined there based on menu (paella for 2 at $40) and were charged with $40 each for the 1 plate. Noise level so high we couldn’t converse. Food was ok but we had better paella elsewhere. Not likely to return.

We had a GREAT evening at Teleferic!! Paulo was an awesome waiter- very knowledgable and helpful in picking out great food. We basically let him pick our dinner and we loved everything he brought out!! HIGHLY recommend his favorite pork dish, and the wanton-avocado-fish tacos! so so good and worth every penny.

Service was poor, server forgot to place our order. We always had to look for a server for drinks. Also, the music was too loud, had to keep asking my friend to repeat herself. Food was good but there are many better Tapas restaurants out there. Very expensive for what they provided as well. Won’t be coming back.

Host and servers were welcoming and professional. Drinks and every dish was absolutely delicious. My favorite surprise were the empanadas (shown here) and the oysters. I wish ordered more of these two. I also wish I would’ve taken more pictures to share as the presentations were exceptional.

Thank you! After more than a year we finally had a pre-Covid experience with great food, service and ambiance. We’ve dined at many other restaurants but unfortunately they fell short, perhaps due to staffing or protocols. But Telefica Barcelona was simply fantastic...especially the Iberico ham, pulpo and churros.

The quality of the dishes really good.
We have already eaten several times at the two California restaurants, including Palo Alto.
Strange waiting with a totally empty table. Something common in American restaurants. For no apparent reason.
Deafening noise caused by some customers talking and laughing as if everyone needed to know about their stupid conversations. The atmosphere was terrible. It looks like a fair.
Very friendly and helpful staff.

I was very surprised to find the indoor dining area filled to what looked like full capacity. If I had not been fully vaccinated, I would not have felt very safe and would have left. The food was fresh and tasty. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. Food arrived at a good pace. What seemed to be lacking was someone to refill our water. We had to ask four or five times to get water refills. I was also surprised that our bill was over $70per person even though only a few of us ordered sangrias.

It felt great to get out with friends again. We’ve been to Teleferic before and enjoyed it so we decided when the time came it would be a good place to get together. The restaurant was able to accommodate us outside so it we felt at ease. The food was delicious and plentiful. We love doing tapas and they have a terrific selection. The empanadas, oysters and salmon tartare were especially good. And the sangria was awesome. We highly recommend Teleferic Barcelona and will certainly return.

The reason I give this place two stars is strictly because of the mandatory 20% that they add to the bill without letting you know prior to ordering the food! It’s basically a mandatory tip. Doesn’t sound legal at all. I loved the place went there many times before however due to this add on charge I will not return. Horrible!!

Open table did not give me the option of reserving outside. When I remembered to contact the restaurant directly, they were already booked outside. I figured since we are in the red tier, inside would only be filled to 25% capacity. Not so! The indoor dining room appeared to be filled to 100% capacity! The restaurant was clearly not following COVID guidelines. Since my husband and I were vaccinated we decided to stay. We ordered the crab paella for 2 which was totally disappointing. It was somewhere around $68 and was simply a bunch of partially burned rice w/ a tiny bit of crab on top. The restaurant manager gave us free churros as compensation, but that didn’t really cut it. The wait staff was nice enough, but the restaurant was not following covid guidelines and our dinner was bad.

We enjoyed marvelous seating in a covered upstairs outdoors patio. The pepper vodka sangria was tasty. The lobster paella, made traditional style, was delicious but it needed more seafood ingredients and it would have been better.
I didn’t really care for the automatic gratuity being added, albeit the service was superb. The amount of the tip should be my choice.
Overall the dining experience was very nice, and we’ll certainly return.

Price of $69.00 for Paella was absurd given what we were served. We truly don’t mind spending money dining out. We ordered the Crab paella that also has some other seafood as well. Heeuuge crab shell centred on the dish. We think the crab escaped, since we had about 2 oz in the whole dish intended for two. My brother in law is from Madrid and makes a killer Paella so the bar is high, but this dish flavour profile was muddied, no saffron flavour, with very little actual seafood.
Then we receive the bill which already had a 20% gratuity tacked on. Went back and looked all through the menu and on the website and can’t find anything that discloses that up front. We typically leave 20% and especially in these tough times for restaurants we certainly would, but to not be disclosed up front is in poor taste.
We would not recommend this restaurant based on the disappointment with the food and the non-disclosed 20% gratuity.
