This is a large restaurant right by the beach where you can eat inside or out. We didn't book and were surprised when we arrived to find an empty restaurant full of reserved tables. They did manage to accommodate us and we arrived at 1.30 for lunch and by 2 it was full to bursting. You must book to be... More

The menu del dia was extremely well priced but the food was average in terms of quality. But then at 10 euros, I guess one can't expect more. If we go back again it would be to try the a la carte menu, which looked a lot more interesting. Still, if on a budget, the menu del dia is more... More

I have found many good restaurants in Aguilas. This is one of them. It serves excellent paellas and different rices with seafood, meat and vegetables. Fish is of course the specialty of the restaurant, and you can't go wrong with it. But the also have very good meats. The strenght of this restaurant is its versatility. You can have a... More

The food has always been excellent and attractively presented. We went for the first time this year with 3 other friends for a menu del dia at 10 E per person, excluding alcohol and you get either desert or coffee. The meal started with good individual rolls and alioli and a salad that looked more like a special salad than... More

High quality food and nice presentation. Very friendly and polite service by waiter Pedro. Fish is visibly displayed in the restaurant. Perfect ambience with in- and outdoor tables; on the boulevard with excellent sight at the sea.

when ever in Aguilas area we always book El Faro for lunch, excellent cuisine, If you make the effort the staff are really friendly, excellent location next to the sea. If anything the menu is almost too extensive.

Excellent location overlooking the sea, well presented food, staff very attentive, reasonably priced. Certainly worth a visit. We had the A la Carte, served on the outer terrace in glorious sunshine. Menu del dia also available, but not served on the outer terrace.
