Very nice restaurant

We made a reservation in this restaurant on an evening during the week and it was packed. The welcome was warm and the fish the lady suggested was delicious. We will be back.

Nice friendly lady knows how to cook! We took different tapas and they were served every 10 to 15 minutes, so we looked forward to the next tasty dish. You can sit on the roof-terrace.

We ate here on two occasions and enjoyed the meal each time. The service is excellent. I would recommend the goats cheese salad and any fish with Canarian potatoes. It is a little walk down from the town but worth the exercise.

The restaurant was so busy that even though we had booked we had to wait 20 minutes to see the specials menu. Service was quite slow but the fish was good though nothing special.

Not the warmest welcome, but the service was fine in the end and the food was good. Our fish was very well cooked and tasty.

The restaurant when we visited was very busy and the waitress had failed to turn up for work. She arrived very flustered over 1.5 hours late by which time there was a backlog of customers waiting and tables to be cleared. (But looking back on earlier reviews slow service isn't unusual here.) The tables are very squashed together and there... More

Went twice and had good food on both occasions slightly overdone calamari on the first but superb rabbit stew on the second. My other half had very good fresh fish and an interesting pink beet root pasta. House wines were both decent and price good too. Front of house lady very competent efficient and unflappable we like that and friendly... More

We were in Hermigua for a week and planned to eat nothing but fish, El Faro was recommended and lived up to expectations. We ate here three times, and each time we could just manage the dish together with an excellent mixed salad. They say the simplest things are the hardest to do, and to cook plain fish requires a...

If you want to eat fish then go to El Faro. This super little restaurant is overlooks the beach near Hermigua and, on a good day, you can sit on the roof terrace to soak up the sun and admire the view. Fish cookery, always tricky to perfect, and so often disappointing, here at El Faro is truly outstanding. I... More
