Fantastic meal with excellent service one of the very best we have had on the island and would recommend you to visit the family run Steak House. Above and beyond the service provided.

After looking for a good restaurant outside the bungalow area, we found the "El Nublo" in tripadvisor. Based on the recommendations therein, we decided to go there. Best decision we made. Friendly personal, well organized, delicious meals, good house wine etc., all what's needed for a good evening. What to be highlighted. Only one portion "pealla mixta" was served instead... More

As we were staying very close to Faro 2 we tried 3/4 different restaurants in the area in the first week but quickly came to the conclusion that El Nublo was the best and therefore used them for the second week. I particularly liked their Argentinian steak, Canarian Soup which was spicy and their melon with parma ham or prawns.... More

Found this place on our first night. Faro 2 looks like something out of an "end of the world film" but having ventured in discovered El Nublo. Had a brilliant Fillet Steak for about 13 Euros and was hooked. Over our fortnight we ate here 10 times and not one bad meal. It also became very noticeable how regular the... More

As we stay in a bungalow fairly close by we always visit El Nublo for dinner a couple of times on each holiday. Such a shame the Faro is falling to rack & ruin but that does not negate the sheer excellence of the El Nublo. Always a warm welcome, always remembered from one holiday to the next, wonderful food...

El Nublo at Faro 2. Don't bother with the other El Nublo down the road. This restaurant is in a shopping centre which is falling apart, don't be put off by the surroundings. Their steak is superb and very well priced. If you're staying within walking distance of this place, this is the only restaurant within walking distance worth eating... More
