Our visit begun with a little waiting time. The we got a menu without Finnish or Scandinavian texts. I was very glad because so we must or can try and live like local people with a a local waiter. After some little problems the service succeeded very well. We learned some Spanish the waiter some English and Finnish. The waiter... More

We ate here on a Sunday evening in January when many other restaurants were closed. The rating I've given it is in comparison to other restaurants we ate at during our stay in Arinaga. This was definitely one of the better ones. It seems that much of Gran Canaria is a culinary desert, mostly fried food and little imagination. This... More

We visited the restaurant twice during our week's stay in Playa de Arinaga. Both times we were well pleased. The service itself was charming and efficient. The food was comparatively simple, but very good - mostly fish and sea food. My sister was particularly impressed with the Canarian Fish., and amongst the things I enjoyed were the octopus starter and... More

Its hard to find such dedicated people that shows in the quality of their food and restaurant. Family run buisness for over 20 years now. The service is great and the food spectacular. Though prices are a bit high, it pays for a special meal, with special people and a special day.

La Farola is nicely situated close to the Atlantic in the quiet small town of Arinaga. The restaurant is serving perfectly cooked fish. We had the salt baked fish after sizzling garlic clams all washed down with a perfect white wine from the Canary Islands. The restaurant is family owned and the service was impeccable. Well worth a detour.

Had solo lunch here on sunny day. Restaurant has nice location and at the terace you can watch people passing by. Restaurant has quick and prompt service and regardless of my trial to use spanich they immedeatly replied in english. Menu, which is also available in english, is short. That makes choosing easier. At least the portions I tried were... More
