We bumped into the owner of this establishment on the golf course and he talked about his restaurant. Two years later we finally made it. We wished we had come sooner. The overall experience was excellent. We enjoyed the food although the starter portions are large and a little pricey (be warned ). The views, the service and the quality... More

Select your own fresh catch of the day , seafood and vegetables prepared mallorcan style..the Chef and the staff are from this area and very friendly and helpful with the menue , even if you don't eat fish they prepare a delicious meat or veggi platter. The view is magnificent , so take the time..don't rush and enjoy.

Friendly, professional staff. An original lamb dish that i cannot describe in detail. But it was really deliscious - and one of the few none-fish dishes on the menu. My wife is no fish-fan, so she asked for a vegetarian dish, which the waiter composed on the spot: asparagus, aubergines, squash, carrot puré, peber among other things. We were amused.... More

Es Faro is an excellent restaurant run by a Majorcan, so typically authentic, choice of fresh fish of the day. A bit of walk in the heat or get a taxi from the port, very long twisty road up to the lighthouse (es faro is lighthouse in Spanish) - well worth it, especially for an occasion - enjoy!

We were only in Mallorca for one day on a cruise and had a delightful ride to Port del Soller and discovered this gem of a restaurant. You pick your own fish as well as shrimp, calamari, etc. Unbelievable food and views. It is well worth the drive from anywhere on the island. Don't miss this gorgeous and delicious meal.

I visited the Es Faro with my daughter in August for lunch. We had scampi and fresh fish as well as a bottle of local white wine recommended by the waiter. The fish and seafood was very nice, the service was very friendly and the view was fantastic. In terms of value for money, the place is probably a bit... More

First sign that things were not what they should be was when the waiter lit the candle by upturning it and flicking the on switch. The battery kept the flickering falsehood going all evening, but little else worked as it should. Even the credit card machine packed up apparently because the "high winds had wrecked the wifi". The carefully arranged... More

As other reviewers note this has to be one of the best locations for a restaurant anywhere on the island. The views are spectacular. However the same cannot be said about the food which was deeply disappointing. The fish, supposedly sea bass, though hard to tell, was overcooked, dry and completely flavourless. Presentation careless and really unappetising. All in all... More

This restaurant is a little tricky to find and driving a large car up the narrow cliff roads was a little hair raising. However, we were rewarded with a spectacular view of the port. The catches of the day were brought out and explained by the friendly staff. We had some delicious mussels and clams followed by local catches cooked... More
