As many others have said, nice setting, in a traditional square. Food was average, with the prawn cocktail and steak kebab being of a good quality, whereas the sole was awful. The wine was very reasonable! Place was packed (normally a good sign) but the ambience was spoiled for three of our group, as there was a game of football... More

Hidden away in a perfect Spanish square, this restaurant is very atmospheric. The food is of a very high quality and is served by a friendly team. A wide choice of dishes + a good day menu. If you are visiting Fuengirola but really want to feel that you are in 'old Spain', this is definitely the place to come!... More

Have eaten in La Farola each time have been in Fuengirola and it can always be relied upon for a top notch meal. It is slightly off the beaten track in a wee courtyard but worth looking for as not that far from the main drag. Huge portions, so never any need for a starter! We have always ordered the... More

Excellent selection of food. Staff are friendlier and service is better in the winter but also a great place to eat in the summer as it is situated in a large plaza, accessed via alleyway off the backstreets of Fuengirola. Prices are usual for this type of restaurant. Inside is very welcoming in the winter and the outside has a... More

La Farola has to be my most favourite restaurant in all of Fuengirola. It is hidden down the warren of streets behind Constitution Square but is definitely well worth finding. The restaurant is located in a charming old courtyard which has a bull post in the middle where all the children play at night time and where street entertainers come... More

Lovely location in a hidden courtyard off Calle Palangeros. Excellent fixed price three course menu with wine. Booking essential during high season.

A great place to eat, meet and greet! Recommended by friends who took us there - so glad they did. We loved it. We were sat outside, a lovely evening, great food and good value for money. Would certainly recommend this place.

Great location, with a good selection on the menu to chose from. We arrived as the restaurant opened at 7pm, and by 8pm all the tables were taken or reserved.

We enjoyed our freshly cooked food relaxing at a table that the waiter set up for us in the square. My husband and I both had the salmon which was cooked to perfection. The evening was busy but all the staff were attentive and took time to make conversation with you. Would recommend a visit if you are wanting a... More
