Great food and great service.A nice combination of local and english food.Try the steaks,they melt in the mouth.Good quality and value for money.Very friendly staff and they never rush you.We kept going back as it was so good.Lots of bars close by for an after dinner drink and some entertainment.

We've been coming here since 2007. I first visited with my two sons when Faro 2 was a busy little centre . Every unit occupied by shops and restaurants. We've been back 4 times since then and although Faro 2 is struggling with most of the shops and restaurants moving to the newer resort, El Nublo remains firm. This makes... More

We dined here 8 of the 10 nights we were in Maspalomas and there was not one meal that wasn't excellent. Yes the surroundings are not the best, a run down shopping centre, but that should not put you off. Lovely steaks, delicious pastas and superb pizzas; everything is so well cooked. The service was second to none too and... More

We came here 7 years ago and returned again, we were not disappointed. Myself and my husband had different meals each time we came and can recommend the meat paella, the Faro steak, escalope, fillet of pork with bernaise sauce, basically it's all good. We had our 4 and 11 year old with us and they were happy with their... More

El Nublo is a great little family run restaurant in the dilapidated Faro 2 shopping centre. The Father and Son run establishment offers a wide range of well cooked traditional food. We had fillet steaks on one night which were excellent; paella another night which we very much enjoyed and spicy chicken kebabs on our third visit which were delicious.... More

We decided to see what restaurants were available in the local Faro 2 shopping centre. It's very fun down with most of the shops shut but hidden inside is a gem of a restaurant. The owner made us feel very welcome without being overbearing or pushy unlike so many other venues. We were given a free starter of Canarian soup... More

Visited this last week as I had seen some good reviews! ! All I can say is the people who claim this was nice are clearly disillusioned. I ordered a fish pizza and my partner ordered a meat lasagna. My pizza was ok but very substandard compared to others I have eaten. The lasagna was the most appaling we have... More
