Ate here three times during our 10 day stay, as mentioned by others it's in Faro 2 shopping centre most of which is closed down apart from few bars, shops and restauraunts. Friendly service by the family and always fairly busy with lots of Brits which was unusual in this area. Noticed they were very good with kids. Food and... More

Ate twice at El Nublo - both meals were excellent! Only found it by accident after visiting supermarket but was very pleased with it. Made very welcome by Marcus and his Papa. The canarian soup is soooo tasty and the steaks cooked to perfection - medium/rare. Could not manage a sweet - only Irish coffee which were very good!! Such... More

Pity that the Faro 2 shopping centre is mainly closed down apart from a couple of shops, a couple of bars, a supermarket, and three restaurants. Our favourite of these is El Nublo, where the staff are friendly, the food is excellent and at a decent price. We ate there seven out of the 14 nights we were on the... More

The main thing to say here is don't come here if you want atmosphere or nice surroundings. El Nublo is located in a run down, deserted shopping centre in what looks like barren wasteland. The interior and exterior of this restaurant is pretty depressing and would have been laughable if we hadn't wasted one night of our holiday here. The... More

Dined two evenings in El Nublo during our holiday, both excellent meals. The menu isn't going to win any awards, it's fairly Gran Canarian standard, but the food quality is excellent, reasonably priced and the service is friendly and efficient. El Nublo is am excellent restaurant, it's just a shame that the Faro 2 appears to be crumbling about their... More

We have been visiting this restaurant for the last 8 years and eat there on at least 3 occasions in our ten day holiday. Papa and his son Marcus are always so welcoming and make you feel like one of the Family. I can honestly say we have never had a bad meal there, which is more than I can... More
