“One of my favourites”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Family run with excellent food. Main course is enough food for us. Large portions of well cooked fresh food, veg particularly good. Great atmosphere and lots of space for children to run around and play as it is in a large courtyard. We go regularly and will continue to.

“Unique atmosphere away from Restaurant Alley”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Great value, unique atmosphere and food above average. We fed myself, my better half and two fussy eating kids, mains, a large beer and one desert for €60, this represents good value by Costa Del Sol standards in 2013. I would definitely recommend La Farola, especially if you've got kids as it has a courtyard where they can play, while you can keep an eye on them.

“'Magic' in every way!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Must have eaten here at least 10 times over the last 5 years and each time the food, service and ambiance never fails to please. Located a little off the main bar/restaurant 'track' but still only a 5 minute walk from Fuengirola central square or from 'The Passea', la farola sits on one side of an enclosed residential square. Pedestrian access only means children are not in danger from passing vehicles. Wide ranging menu plus specials that constantly change keep diners coming back for more. Super quality food - particularly the steaks - and great wine at very good prices. Service is always with a smile and although the place is always busy (bookings highly recommended) the staff seam to have time to make sure all the clients are kept happy. Top all this with the Maitre D' being one of the most talented 'close -up' card magicians in Spain and a great evening is almost guaranteed!! He doesn't 'perform' every night, indeed he normally has to be persuaded to do his stuff but ask him nicely and you will be delighted and amazed at the things he can do with playing cards - and right at your table/in front of your eyes!!
I will go back again and again, just as long as La Farola is run the way it is!

“A very good restaurant for young children”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Eating outdoors is part of a Spanish holiday and when we take our grand children they love the freedom they have to run about safe from traffic etc. The food here is very good and they cater for all tastes, plenty for children to choose from. My own favourite is the monkfish casserole .
