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

We had a good lunch of fish and seafood with water, coffee and a bottle of wine on a Saturday and paid about €24 per person. There is a menú del día - don't know if that's available at weekends / holidays, though. Out of peak summer season it's easy to park close to the restaurant. On weekends / holidays... More

We have visited El Faro several times - both for the Menu del Dia at lunchtimes and also in the evening. The location is superb, overlooking the beach and towards the castle on the cliff at the end of the bay (particularly stunning at night). The Menu del Dia provides an excellent choice and value. The sign of a good... More

Great location and views directly overlooking the beach, lovely food and low price for lunch (including large glass of wine in the price). Don't miss it!! (More expensive at night though...)

The menu of the day is fantastic. With 10+ choices for all three courses. The restaurant is lovely and at the quieter end of the beach. However it's an extremely popular restaurant. The service is very good, eve if the staff can't break a smile.

We entered one of our favourite eating houses in the area via the balcony just off the sea front. we were met by a waiter who brought a bottle of red for me and a coke for elaine without me asking, are we creatures of habit or what. We chose our meal from a considerable menu, the soufflé is to... More
