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

Had a lovely breakfast here, the staff couldnt do enough for you and the quality of the food was very good.. Faro2 is very quiet nowadays due to most of the shops moving to meloneras chasing the influx of large hotels that have been built there however what businesses that remain in faro2 are top notch and know that people...

Only went the once this holiday because you can't drink if you do the food justice. We had starters ( soup & prawn cocktail -excellent ) after our free pre -starter Canarian soup which was superb. Lamb chops with vegetables & giant jacket for me sirloin strips with chips & giant salad for her. Will miss lunch the next time... More

Purely in terms of the food, I'd give El Nublo four stars. Their menu can be described as quintessential "holiday food", but don't be put off by that: I mean it purely in terms of variety (the "usuals", in other words - fish, steak, pizza, and plenty more besides) and prices that are perfectly reasonable if not dirt-cheap. The quality,... More
