Went with friends to Aguilas for the day and asked a road sweeper for the best restaurant for Menu del Dia and she recommended here. What a great recommendation. One of the best Menu Del Dia meals for ages and only €10 per person. We upgraded to alcoholic drinks and had coffees and dessert and it still only came to... More

We went several afternoons during our two months stay in Aguilas. For 10€ pp you have a very nice lunch. First plate, second plate, dessert, coffee and drink. A great ariety of choices but iT remains THE same chart during a hole month. Recommandable.

We visited this restaurant a couple of years ago and were impressed, but not this time. We had a menu del dia which is exceedingly good value. The food was average - I have had better in Spain for a €10 lunch - but what spoilt the experience was the speed of service. No sooner had our salad arrived and... More

We went to El Faro for menu del dia on 26/02/2015. The menu was extensive and varied, a fantastic choice of food. Just to give you an idea of the extensive menu we had a choice of approx. 18 main courses. Every course we both had was of the highest standard. I have been to 100's of restaurants in the... More

It's not often that you can lunch very well, be served attentively and have beautiful sea views but at El Faro, you can. You can dine al fresco, on the terrace, semi-alfresco in the 'summer' dining area or more formerly in the internal dinig room. We usualy dine on the terrace so that my wife can enjoy views accross the... More

We order some dishes and they were nice. But one of them (clamps) they were in bad conditions and they gave as the worse food poison that never have had in my life.

Popular restaurant on the sea front. Went in the evening to enjoy beautiful setting with views over to the floodlit castle on a warm evening. Good food and friendly staff. Did not have it ourselves but other people were enjoying the tapas which looked spectacular! Not exactly cheap when ordering from the main menu (the menu del dia at lunchtime... More
