Quite good reviews made us try this restaurant. We ordered the dish who got very good points at Trip Advisor (Argentine steak), but have to admit that we were somewhat disappointed. Did not perform as expected, rather quite plain. However there were good service and it looked like there were some regular customers liking what they got.

We had been here about 18 months ago and were looking forward to going back. It was exactly as we remembered. Greeted with a friendly smile and hand shake. We had fillet steak cooked to perfection, followed by deserts. Not over priced, lovely relaxing atmosphere. We would recommend it to every one and we did to other people we met.... More

Last visited in 2013 which was very nice. Visited again the first night of our holiday and was very disappointed. The staff are still as good but the food was a let down. The half of roast chicken was completely dried out (it looked liked it had been cooked and reheated a few times) - I had to laugh as... More

This small family-run restaurant is in the otherwise quite run-down Faro 2 shopping centre. It's easy to see why it's thriving. We visited from nearby Club Maspalomas, wanting to try somewhere local and which got good reviews. We got a friendly welcome and the multi-lingual menu to view. While we were waiting we got some complimentary Spanish omelette to try.... More

This a shopping mall that use to be popular in the past however , this is now ran down and the building is outdated. However there is supermarket which is very useful and and little shops a few restaurants if you would like to relax and eat.

Although Faro 2 is run down, falling apart it has quite a few restaurants. At night the crumbling building gets a certain charm and character especially with El Nublo continuing to serve customers for many years. The place is run by local father and son. The restaurant serves great fresh food and not just steak. Try local dishes like the... More
