“Ticks all the boxes.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

We decided to eat earlier one evening and the El Faro was about the only restaurant open at 7:15pm on the port. We were very pleased with the welcome and the waiter was genuinely friendly and helpful the restaurant itself is clean and nicely decorated. Our starter the el faro salad was tasty and different. The kids had a combinado hamburger homemade and also shared some of our seafood. We had the grilled calamar and the fried calamar both very fresh and the best prepared I've seen in San Jose. A jug of tinto de verano and fresh juices, lemoncellos on the house total about 60€ total. Would definitely go again.

“Good service, good food”

Opposite the beach near the small port. A Columbian-owned restaurant with some of their specialities included on the menu.
Fresh fish, good meat dishes, and excellent waiter service.
