Great food and drinks. May be better suited for a bigger group so you can order more dishes to share.

Reggaeton was played on repeat which may not be for everyone.

Would not go back. Lobster paella was fishy and left a bad taste in our mouths and stomachs. Gulf prawns were the same. Octopus had a gas taste like the flame it was cooked on.

Very good! However, my last Saturday’s lunch experience was not very good. Food and service were good. But, I was not informed about the tip was included. So, it was ended up that I paid 40% tip. It should have been avoided this type of mistake.

They use authentic Spanish food material such as Iberico Bellota and their way of making and presenting the food is also authentic Spanish cuisine

We love the Paella Negra it's by far the best we've ever had...along with: Iberia Oysters although I didn't quiet get the sauce but my wife says it's really good with Tabasco, and the Trio Desert selection, since not sure which one to order needless to say I'm a dessert person;
Choco Magic - Chocolate ganache, red fruits, cotton candy, vanilla ice cream
Torrija^ - French toast with Catalan cream, banana & vanilla ice cream
Churros con Chocolate^- Barcelona street fried dough with chocolate cream
All three were so perfectly prepared and its serving size is just right if you're counting calories. Overall, the service was excellent every staff was so courteous and friendly especially Soraya, our main waiter. Lastly, we didn't mind the average chatter noise considering everyone probably was as excited as we were to finally go indoor dining making it a very awesome experience. We definitely consider going back to check out the rest of the menu. Gracias!

My wife and I love Spain, we were in the area so we decided on a last minute lunch. The food was great, menu was limited, likely because the restaurant can’t get all the ingredients. This place is a legitimate Barcelona Tapas bar. I’ve traveled there a few times, and this place is authentic. Loved it. Our table was a high top in the bar area, with a loud, obnoxious person, it got better after she left. Overall 5 stars for the food, and the Catalan hosts being so nice.

It was my birthday. I requested a window table 3 times, once online, once when they called me that day, and then when we checked in. Ended up with the crappiest table in the place. Hostesses are snotty and unresponsive.
Food was not very good, certainly not for the price you pay. The lobster paella, probably had 2-3 ounces of lobster in it for 2 people. There were two shrimp in the paella. Not authentic in any way. Rice was not crispy, no peas in the paella. 98% rice.
The two appetizers were at best OK.

Sure won't go back to this overpriced hole.

We knew that the noise level would be high. We requested a quiet table away from the speakers. Our table was directly under a speaker! They volunteered to turn the volume down, which lasted for a while. Then the music got more energetic and the speaker volume got higher. So beware.

The service was A+, with an excellent server, water refilled, dirty plates removed promptly. They definitely earned the automatically applied 20% gratuity.

The food was variable. Our dinner consisted entirely of tapas. The standout was the fabulous tuna taquitos. Also excellent was the octopus/pulpo. My husband's ham croquettes were 'quite good' but not exceptionally hammy. Less wonderful were the patatas bravas. The potatoes themselves were not hot and crispy and the brava sauce was skimpy. The most disappointing was the crispy cauliflower. The cauliflower itself was very under-seasoned. That would have been okay if there had been more romesco, but there was only a smidgen of a smear.

I'd still recommend Teleferic Barcelona but know that they can do better!!

My partner and I had a wonderful time at Teleferic. The atmosphere and vibe of the restaurant was casual and smooth, but also smart. We were seated by a window with a nice view of the downtown area. The cocktails are well crafted, but the food is certainly the highlight of Teleferic. Our tapas came out at a steady pace and while our entrée took a little longer it was well worth the wait. Teleferic also has the best cooked octopus I've ever had; not tough and chewy but tender with a crispy skin.

The service is friendly, professional, and attentive, but not invasive or overly attentive.

The price might be the only thing at Teleferic to give one pause, and it is expensive. However, you get what you pay for and the quality of the food and drink more than made up for the price of the meal.

My partner and I had a wonderful time, and we look forward to our next visit!

I had been to Teleferic Barcelona prior to this visit and at that time it was great...however, I made reservations for a recent Birthday Lunch and it was a HUGE disappointment. We sat outside, which was tightly crowded and Very Noisy...I except that service was slow because they were just getting back up to speed from the long pandemic.
Tapas were great, but the Lobster Paella was a HORROR. I could not believe that they allowed it to leave the kitchen. It was burnt, and dry with an anemic trio of lobster and shrimp. There were not flourishes like lemon wedges, fresh peas or even a sprinkling of fresh parsley. It was unacceptable, and I sent it back.
The staff was very helpful and accommodating. They comp'd us a round of cocktails, dessert and removed the paella from the bill...Unfortunately, the damage had been done. We left hungry and very disappointed. We went to another local restaurant to complete our meal. I am afraid that I will not return to Teleferic Barcelona...

I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for authentic food from Barcelona.
