The joys of El Nublo

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... read more

Great little place and lovely, friendly staff. We visited twice during our holiday after a recommendation from my daughter and we weren't disappointed.

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

Great service. The waiting staff are really friendly. We were offered free tasters of Canarian soup and meatballs on top of our meal. Faro 2 looks a bit run down now but we could not funds young wrong with our food.

Been going to Daniel for many years. Always good food and friendly service. Do not let the surroundings put you off . This is an evening out rather than just dinner. See you in September Danel!

Arrived late on a Saturday night and looking for somewhere close by with decent reviews on TA and decided to give this place a try. The food was ok but the centre it is located in is just horrible! We won be going back.
