We stayed in Hermigua for 4 days and ate here twice. A great little restaurant serving superb fish. The daily fish was beautifully cooked. The best canarian potatoes I'd had during our 8 day stay on the islands. Couldn't recommend enough.

We had one good dinner and a very good afternoon coffe at this restaurant at the beach. Here you can ger food any time after 13:00, when most (if not all) other restaurants are closed (they open usually at 18:30). The pasta Carbonara was tasty and the rabbit was excellent. The service was fast, professional and very friendly. The proprietor... More

The overall experience would probably have been much the same in bygone times. Unpretentious little restaurant in tiny village on sleepy island. No English spoken here and all the better for it.

This is an unpretentious bar and restaurant close to the sea. We went twice. The first time we were offered a variety of fish for the main course. We chose Dorada (sea bream). The fish was served whole, fried in butter and cooked to perfection - great taste, just be careful about the bones! It came with Canarian potatoes but... More

Stayed in Hermigua for 4 days, and ended up going to El Faro Bar-Restaurante twice as it was so good the first time. The Goats Cheese salad was fantastic. I don't normally like goats cheese, but my wife wanted one and it was big enough for two. I said I would have a bit, I fought her for a lot... More

Food was best we had in La Gomera. Hidden terrace at top so don't be put of as it appears there is only an inside area. Only two staff on for a busy night but they were great and food worth waiting for.

After a long day of driving in La Gomera we were delighted to find El Faro open and ready for business. A charming lady greeted us and turns out she is an excellent cook as well. We had tortilla (potato omelette) to start followed by grilled goat's cheese, walnut and palm honey salad. It was excellent and salad ingredients very... More
