I have been going to Limon for 6 years and just discovered this restaurant through a friend 4 days ago. I have already made a second trip there! The view of the Caribbean, Uvita Island, and the entire city of Limon is breathtaking. The service couldn't be better and the food was wonderful. It is now my favorite restaurant in... More

Our visit to El Faro was excellent. It is located on a hill top overlooking the town and blue waters below, this restaurant serves up a wide spread of delicious dishes. Every month they introduce a new item to their menu. We ate a beef steak in a raspberry sauce gravy and baby pork ribs in a mango sauce, both... More

The food is tasty and served nicely, they have a very friendly staff and it is not pricey at all, some locals have the impression that it is. The view is breathtaking even in the day. Very romantic

I had the most excellent Spicy Fajitas and patacones!! We stopped in on the way back from ziplining over the rain forest. I wish I could recreate this dish.

My husband, two friends, and myself had a one day stop in Puerto Limon, off a cruise ship. We went to eat in one restaurant on the beach and did not have a good experience there, so we asked a local tour guide to take us to a nice place...and he brought us to El Faro. The experience in El... More
