Charming service, Good food.

We visited the restaurant twice during our week's stay in Playa de Arinaga. Both times we were well pleased. The service itself was charming and efficient. The food was comparatively simple, but very good - mostly fish and sea food. My sister was particularly impressed with the Canarian Fish., and... read more

Its hard to find such dedicated people that shows in the quality of their food and restaurant. Family run buisness for over 20 years now. The service is great and the food spectacular. Though prices are a bit high, it pays for a special meal, with special people and a special day.

La Farola is nicely situated close to the Atlantic in the quiet small town of Arinaga. The restaurant is serving perfectly cooked fish. We had the salt baked fish after sizzling garlic clams all washed down with a perfect white wine from the Canary Islands. The restaurant is family owned and the service was impeccable. Well worth a detour.

At least the portions I tried were... More
