Wonderful range of Meats and fish cooked in a wide variety of styles. Their mixed grill is one of my favourite meals but you need to be hungry!!! great value for money.

We have visited La Farola many, many times and last night as always, everything was excellent. This was the quietest I have seen this restaurant, only approximately thirty diners but then it was mid-week at the end of November. Although fewer people, the atomosphere was great and lovely and warm with the efficient patio heaters inside. The staff are always... More

We've been to La Farola many times over the years - but never for lunch until our most recent visit to Torrox Costa. Not wanting a heavy meal, my wife chose a Prawn Cocktail (and a plate of chips - and why not, they are freshly cooked, not frozen). I chose Pez Espada (swordfish), with a few 'patatas'...and a bottle... More

Visit La Farola again and received the usual warm welcome, in a very full restaurant. Both my wife & I had a very fresh Swordfish steak and have to say it was superb, cooked & served to a treat. Excellent

When in Spain we always visit this restaurant. The staff make us very welcome and do their best to make the experience pleasant. They offer a wide variety of fish, meat and salad dishes using local produce and prepared in typical Spanish fashion. The house salad is a must and easily serves two! Their steak fillet is not bad either!... More

Fantastic service and understood gluten free. Took me through menu and made suggestions and alternatives to food on the menu. Even when ordered a dish they checked in kitchen and were not sure so came and discussed with me. Was very impressed and we ate there four times as it was a guarantee that the food wouldn't make me ill.

Like many of the other reviews on here Farola's really does hit the spot every time. As a family we've been coming to this part of Spain for over 10 years and have always used Farola's. In all that time I can hinestky say we've never had a bad meal...whether that's lunch or dinner. The staff are always happy to... More

Have just returned from a holiday in Torrox which was great however, after looking at Tripadvisor prior to going,for restaurant recommendations, I am amazed at the reviews this establishment has been given. There were 8 of us (2 families of 4) and I would start off by saying that the appearance of the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired... More
