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

As we had excellent service, quality of meal etc at the above before, as we near we thought we would have lunch with them. Big dissapointment, firstly a lot of staff had changed and were slow and ill equipped for a busy restaurant like el faro. Delivery of the meal was disjointed, for example my first course arrived before my... More

El Faro is a well-established restaurant right on the shore in Aguilas. Every time we have been there it is very busy, with mostly local people. The food is very good, with a great selection and very helpful and friendly staff. There is menu del dia and an extensive a la carte option. The choice of dishes is amazing, certainly... More

El Faro is a lovely restaurant situated right on the coast in Aguilas. The staff are very obliging and helpful and the food is always pretty good. The sea food is particularly good. We went one Friday lunchtime and because the place was so busy we felt as if we were being rushed. our main arrived before we had finished... More

We met up with some friends who were on holiday at the same time, and this was about halfway for all of us. They chose El Faro after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. We were amazed at the choice for the menu del dia - we have had a house in Spain for 11 years and I have never seen so... More
