“Same impression: this is what a restaurant should be.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We have been visiting this restaurant for the last three years now, and I must say that it is the restaurant I like the most of all restaurants I have ever visited in my entire life. Yesterday evening, the locos were superb, and the salteado de mariscos to die for. Service was excellent (gracias Ricardo!).
What I like - strange view - is the table were staff and the owner's family - we presume- are having their lunch and dinner together. Nice to see how staff is being appreciated by the owners. I hope this impression is the correct one.
Message to the owners: just get rid of that huge tv screen on the stairs. It ruins the authenticity of the place.

“This the best restaurant in the world !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2011

Faro Belén offers nothing less and nothing more than what I expect form a restaurant: excellent service, great food and wine, great atmosphere, spotless cleanliness, and an open kitchen. Even when you are five or six, the waiters never disturb your conversation asking 'who ordered the fish' ? They just remember it ... well I know they use some trick, but never mind, they go the extra mile for their clients. I never felt better in any other restaurant in the world !
The neighbourhood is a little shabby and might look unsafe (it is rather safe, just ask vigilantes to watch your car or come by taxi).
A hidden gem !!
