The best pork I have ever eaten!!!

This is a tiny place that you will most likely walk past if you are not looking for it!! I chose el secreto Ibérica which was mouth wateringly succulent and the roasted vegetables were divine. We had to sit around an upturned barrel but that was ok if a little uncomfortable . Great place to people... read more

I can honestly say that I had the best steak I have ever eaten, or ever likely to eat for that matter at El Farolito. I opted for the rump steak cooked rare, and my steaky world changed forever. The restaurant is small, so advanced booking is advised, but it is well worth it, and to top it off, it... More

Phoned ahead and booked, on a Monday night but glad we did as others were turned away. Extremely brief menu, 3 starters, 3 mains and slightly more wines to choose from. I had black pudding and wife had chorizo & pork sausage followed by a strip steak and rump respectively. 21 & 18 Euros for steaks and decent Rose wine... More

Always great to have some Argentinian food, such as meat and typical plates as Provoleta. The people are really friendly. Over the years became more expensive. 4 years ago some of the dishes were almost half of the price.

Had an excellent meal consistent with prior reviews. One detail I had forgotten, and which is very important, is the restaurant does not accept credit cards. I had a moment of panic, but had just enough to cover the bill. For our party of 3, €75, and I think about €25 per person is about right if you will have... More

Having had our fill of tapas on previous nights we needed a meat and veg dinner and this place was fine. They offer a variety of steak cuts, we tried the flank and rump steak and both were of very good flavour, the flank was a little tough but very good and the rump was excellent. The grilled vegetables and... More

A tiny well decorated place with Argentinian grill. I liked using radios & typing machines as decor. Expect focus on high protein. Flank steak was one of the best rare cooked steaks I have had. Delicious chorizo, have it with no addition, so you could enjoy the taste. They open after 20:15.

Enjoyed visit tonight. The rump steaks were excellent, tender and juicy and the service was spot on, efficient and friendly. Will return again before end of holiday.
