Some friends invited me to this restaurant in Fuengirola town. I thought I knew all the places but the plaza this restaurant is in is a little secret place and quite delightfully Spanish. The La Farola restaurant is actually well signposted if you look. It's needs to be because it's a touch hard to find in the back streets. The... More

Had a lovely meal yet again. Always visit this authentic Andalucian restaurant when I holiday here. Such a beautiful Plaza. Food always plentiful, good quality and cooked well. Friendly family run restaurant. Best to book as always busy. Have only been in evenings so not sure if it opens lunch time but don't think so. It's a must for good... More

When the weather permits this is another of Fuengirola's outdoor locations for great food. Family run for over thirty years and consistently good. It is in a typical Andalucian plaza only three blocks back from the beach. A must try. Service can be a little slow as they are usually fully booked and run off their feet. Reservations are recommended

Called here mainly because it looks good and has always been full when we have called into the square for a drink. As advised by previous reviewers we booked ahead. We all chose the set meal option which was 18.50 each with included a bottle of wine per couple. Potion sizes were more than ample and food was good without... More

Excellent restaurant and the setting was charming situated within a courtyard surrounded by residential apartments. The food was excellent value and plenty of it.A must visit but book a table as it gets very busy.

We visit this restaurant frequently and have not been disappointed. This time we went for the set as the portions are so large. Started with Prawn Cocktail/Camembert. Very good. Followed with Pork/Chicken with potatoes, veg and sauce. Well cooked and tasty. We always add the onion rings which are beautifully seasoned. Finished with cheesecake and ice cream. The food is...
