We had two good meals here, as easy to walk to from the Casa Rural los Herrera in Hermigua. The first evening was very crowded, possibly because of other restarant closure days, and we had to share a table, which was no problem. The one partner serving still seemed to manage ... just. The second was much quieter and relaxed.... More

This is a popular spot for fresh fish dishes, so you may need to book. Only one person serving, but she was warm and smiley, and managing orders efficiently in a variety of language Unpretentious. Gracious service. Fresh ingredients. Great pesto pasta, fresh fish and mojo sauces

This was followed by chocolate cake. The second night I went for the dorada, another local fish and it was just as fresh and delicious. The third night... More

A very popular small restaurant. We were lucky to get a table. We had clams to start which came in a nice broth and followed up with whole Dorada, beautifully fresh. The fish were so large that I couldn't finish mine. Nice atmosphere and really good value for money.

Having read the reviews we decided one of the last nights we spent on the beautiful island should be savoured. The food was average. I had meat (which was tough) and my partner had fish which was in fact all that it was, a fish. Would have definitely appreciated some salad or veg. I would strongly recommend the restaurant at...

After driving around for about an hour to try and find somewhere to eat we were very lucky to come across El Faro. We were made to feel very welcome, food was lovely and ambience delightful. The food is made fresh, esp fish. So be prepared to wait a little. For us that was no problem a very relaxing dinning... More

We ate here for both of our nights in Hermigua. Very friendly service and particularly good fish menu with very fresh produce. All the dishes have generous proportions: great after a long day's walk. A relaxed atmosphere and thoroughly recommended

Great service, choices and meals. Good wine choices. The waitress is multilingual, the menu is as well. Overlooking the ocean and the mountains. Just a great little spot.
