The owners are lovely, with cheerful and warm smile. The restaurant is very... More

This lady knows how to season her food. Best mojo I tasted so far. The mussels were good- seasoned in another good mojo. Friendly place in a quiet town.

We came on this restaurant by chance. It seems to be run by 2 local ladies, they took orders, served and cooked what was an absolutely fabulous dinner. Set in a lovely traditional restaurant on the edge of the village, the atmosphere was relaxed and informal. We were made to feel very welcome despite our lack of Spanish language. Our... More

If you are looking for a decent meal with fresh food that is well prepared in a simple but pleasant setting, this is the place to go. The German restaurant manager's smile makes you feel welcome right away. There is a short but well structured menu and every dish is prepared with care. And the bill is fair to top... More

El Faro (the lighthouse) clearly stands out in Hermigua. Small restaurant near the Santa Cantalina beach with mainly fish on the menu next to local dishes. Very friendly service. Very reasonably priced. Informal setting.

El Faro stands out - everything we ate totally fresh and perfectly cooked. Clams in garlic and white wine - scrumptious and anchovies - marinated... More

Really surprised by this little place. The fish was super fresher and grilled perfectly. The Colombian lady waiting the tables was super nice and accommodating. Really recommend it.
