Telefèric Barcelona is my favorite place to eat. The only impediment is That they don’t have more space and the staff does a good job covering All restrictions.
It’s a delight to interact with the people who work there!

I had put a note on our reservation that it was a birthday celebration for husband but they didn’t mention or recognize this during our meal. I felt awkward saying anything at the time but when we started to sing happy birthday to him during dessert they said oh you should have told us! I felt they should have known and acknowledged it as we arrived at the front desk where they should have seen the note on my reservation. Next time?? The tapas was excellent though but was served a little too quickly in my opinion. Thank you.

Had an accident which I understand, The staff are great! Food delicious. However broken glass on my food and they didn't even try to removed the item from my check, my Sangria wasn't even removed from my bill (on my Birthday) We were very cool and calm about it, We didn't even ask for nothing for free, but come on! don't charge me for what I didn't even finished to eat nor my drink that got spell all over me on my new clothes, didn't even offer to pay for dry cleaners, I could of being a more difficult guest and I wasn't! Because I understand that accidents happen! I just didn't want to get the staff in trouble ( They were very nice and polite ) The management was more concern about serving me back the same steak, than make it right for me. Very disappointing of how it was handle. (Covid 19 Can not serve the same food.....Common sense!!!!)
Other than that everything was great! You guys are very fortunate that I don't like to get anyone in trouble, other guest would of take you to the cleaners!!!

*COVID CONCERNING*

My husband I went on our first date since March this past weekend and we were shocked with what experienced. Teleferic had about 30 people waiting to be seated, all standing in the small waiting area. Groups of 12 people asking to be seated together, demanding actually. They were running behind so my husband I decided to wait outside and not in with all the people. I checked online to see if they were booked but nope, still showing lots of open reservations. Seems like 25% capacity was loose. Our food was ok, not the same as what we have enjoyed many times before but I expected that with the pandemic. Once seated we had a group of two tables who were together surrounding our two top. It was so uncomfortable to have 12 people moving back and forth around our table all without masks that we only ordered drinks with apps and got out of there. In and out within a hour! If you are at all concerned with COVID, I would recommend finding a different restaurant. Just didn’t feel safe.

Disappointing experience. The most expensive paella on the menu was recommended by our server, the dungeness crab paella. I was excited to try this dish but it was terrible. It was very salty, all of the fish was rubbery and had a very fishy smell, even for a seafood dish. My husband and I did not eat our $68 fishy rice. I order the cote iberico hangar steak for my son. First, we had to hunt down our server to find out where it was and she finally stopped by to say they overcooked it so they had to make another one. Likely story, but ok, fine. When they finally brought it out, it was very rare and we ordered med-rare. Our server took it back to the kitchen, came back and told us we ordered it wrong and said they'd cook a new one. The new one was practically well-done. My son was hungry we dealt with it. Lastly, they are now imposing 20% gratuity to all patrons, regardless of number of guests. When asked, she said it's on the menu and it takes care of all of the house. I wouldn't mind but they apply the 20% against the total bill - half of our bill was alcohol. And I do think that if they are going to do this, they should point it out up front and give good service. We had to track down our server anytime we needed something and she did not check on us a single time without being asked. This is one of my favorite restaurants in WC. I was extremely disappointed by the food and service.

Food was very bland and we were disappointed, surprised that so much was fried. Server went on break apparently without saying anything to us and had to flag down 2 different waiters to order a drink. Finally when we were almost done it came.

The food was delicious and the service was fine, although a bit slow. In non-COVID times, this restaurant would be great, however...

Although we felt safe at our table (not technically "outside," but close to a large window and spread apart), the inside of this restaurant and the bar was WAAAAY too crowded and the patrons were without masks even when not eating/drinking. I feel sorry for the wait staff as this seems pretty risky serving people who are obviously not taking precautions. Contra Costa County needs to check in on these restaurants to make sure they are in compliance.

It was a very expensive meal! Many of the dishes weren't very good - the fries that came with the pork were completely cold and soft and the pork itself was sadly overcooked. Also, while they advised that they had "outdoor sitting" it was practically completely enclosed, which didn't feel very Covid safe. We did enjoy the wine, but paid a lot for it! We won't be coming back.

Enjoy sitting inside at the bar to watch people and eat the paella mixta (with chicken, spare ribs, and seafood) and drink sangria. Good churros. Service is friendly but a little distracted at the bar due to the constant drink orders.

Todo hermoso, y delicioso. Solo un Único detalle, pudimos haber consumido más bebidas, si los bartenders tuvieran más prioridad de hacer las bebidas que acomodar los vasos vacíos, un domingo por la tarde y el
Restaurante estaba razonablemente tranquilo.
