    We were looking forward to an authentic Spanish meal, but this was far from it. While the octopus was tasty and the cocktails were fine, all else was bland and the paella was quite dry and too salty. We wouldn’t return.

    Been coming to Teleferic for many years! Very disappointed that they took the pork belly dish off the menu and changed the Catalan gin & tonic. The flavor was at least the same but really missed the beautiful purple flower and long, clear hand cut ice cube. A dining experience should also be both visually appealing & delicious . So sad that this will no longer be a favorite that I recommend and bring people to. Service was also subpar

    The food, drinks, and service were outstanding! The only issue we had was the table felt cramped and everyone was extremely hot. We were all sweating by the middle of our service. Not sure if the HVAC was having issues, but it felt like a sauna in there. Nevertheless, we will be back!

    Service was outstanding, but unfortunately, the food left a lot to be desired. The kitchen was very busy, but its no excuse for serving undercooked food. There was one shrimp that was raw and the black cod was just barely cooked through. Our waiter replaced the shrimp order at no charge. Wait staff and manager were very kind and accommodating.

    TELÈFERIC BARCELONA - WALNUT CREEKResponded on March 10, 2023Hello Mark. We are deeply sorry about the underwhelming experience you had at our restaurant. Please know food handling procedures are top priority and our executive chef is in charge of ensuring our dishes come out in perfect conditions. Therefore he has been informed about the situation you went through. We'd love if you could give us another chance in the future. If you do, please do not hesitate to contact with me here: info@telefericbarcelona. Muchas gracias.

    My cocktail was super sweet even after I said I don’t like it sweet. The second cocktail was pretty bad too. I was never provided a water glass. Had to ask for it in the middle of the dinner. Service was just so so and lacked professionalism. Food was ok. The prawns that I normally love to get were really chewy and hard this time around.

    A little disappointing. Tiny table for four adults and over zealous servers and bussers. We felt pressured to give up plates we were still picking at. Also, they insisted on approaching from behind us and it was quite startling to see black gloves suddenly appear between my wife and I. Food was mediocre and meager.

    Everything was delicious, our waiter was attentive and very sensitive to our dietary restrictions. The only mild complaint was our water glasses were only filled upon request, then it was taken care of. This restaurant is delicious and unique. Love it for special occasions since it is a little pricey.

    Generally bad. Bad food, a few rude servers. And the manager was also quite rude when we went to sit in a bar area that was reserved. We were happy to leave once we learned that it was reserved, but there was no way we could have known beforehand (there were no signs or other indications that it was closed). When we went to sit down, he was extremely condescending in informing us that it was not available.

Not complaining at all because everything was satisfying! Although I wish we weren’t seated outside because it was freezing out. I will most definitely be returning

    The restaurant itself was very nice, the staff welcoming. The ambience was casual and the service was fantastic. The drinks were good, the tapas we tried were very good except for the Dragon Balls. The Chorizo was a little too greasy for our taste. We ordered the Lobster Paella. The Lobster and shrimp was good, the rice in the dish was a little undercooked and a bit hard. To me you should not notice that in a good Paella dish, the rice should accent the flavors and be soft, kind of under the radar on the dish. I would go back, but maybe not on a busy holiday or event where the kitchen may not be as rushed, and extra seats may be added.

    If all server is like our server, then experience and restaurant ratings are better. We love the squid ink paella we ordered here. The drinks are fine. It’s nice that they can alter our food order to our liking even though it’s not in the menu- affogato, skinny, spicy cocktail drinks, no pork, no scallops on our orders. We just love a hard working server who listens to our request!! The octopus is good, soft inside and crunchy outside. Calamari is not the type we like how it was prepared. I don’t like the chicken croquet cause it’s fried and has more cover than what’s inside so you taste more of the oil from the cover. The beef bao is salty and only 1 piece, I was hoping for at least 2 and kinda like how the bao is at dumpling time but was disappointed with it. Eventhough some food is not if our liking, the paella and octopus and the server made our Valentine’s Day celebration wonderful.

    We’ve been to Teleferic Barcelona multiple times before the Covid pandemic, but this our first time after. We were all pleased to find that neither the quality of food nor their service had changed: it was still excellent. The only thing that changed were the prices, but it was expected as they went up everywhere else. Overall, still a great experience!
