Note: new server in February, 2016, so be prepared as she is learning the trade. But the food is still excellent. I highly recommend the Pulpa (octopus). It is prepared with authentic Spanish pakprika that the owner/chef has shipped directly from Spain. Completely different flavor...More

I've visited La Farola before and once again it did not disappoint! The gazpacho soup and fruit salad were flavourful and very refreshing on what was an otherwise warm evening. We followed that with calamari, croquettes and mussels. For the entree we had the grilled...More

This restaurant was at the top of the trip advisors list so we were hopeful. Very disappointing! Very expensive for what we got...mussels order at $15 was 6 mussels in a spicy cream sauce. Good tastes but over priced and mini portion... Not worth it!

The host and the chef are from Galicia, Spain, and their menu reflects the various savoury dishes of Spain. The ambiance is warm and comfortable. You need not rush through your meal as it is one sitting only. Take your time to enjoy the tasty...More

Even though it was difficult to find, we didnt give up and found it tucked away in a street near a small shopping plaza. The food there was amazing. The owners( who entirely run the restaurant together) were so sweet and inviting. They do not...More
