Sumptuous Dining at prices you can all afford.

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... read more

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

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. Literally after less than 2 hours of eating all of us were ill. We came back to the restaurant and explained what happened and the staff did... More

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

We had noticed on a previous visit a drop in the usual high standard, particularly in service, so we thought we would call in today and see if things had improved. We were served by the boss who is young, friendly and VERY efficient The service from him was spot on, i couldn't help but notice that every member of... More

We visit El Faro every time we go to Aguilas and have never been disappointed with it. They have recently upgraded the dining terrace with smart new glass and chrome surrounds, which makes dining out all year round possible, without spoiling the views of the castle and beach. This time we were a party of 17 for a birthday and... More

El Faro was a favourite of ours last year, We have visited twice this year and are extremely dismayed to see that standards have dropped, both in service and quality of cooking. Even the beautiful location could not make up for our disappointment. The staff were neither friendly nor welcoming. They were disorganised and really didn't seem bothered whether they... More
