We always go for tapas as have heard the restaurant is expensive. Portions are large and plentiful a very reasonable price. Quite noisy of a weekend but aren't all restaurants like that in Spain! adds to the authnticity. Great. Return time after time.

We visited this restaurant with high expectations, and having lived in Spain we were craving some quality tapas food. Unfortunately this was not the case; we decided on the tapas menu, the first thing we noticed was the size of the portions, they were over sized and the waitress advised 3 dishes were enough for 2 people. We were expecting smaller dishes, there was too much food in each dish. We ordered tortilla, ribs and the grilled prawns. The ribs were dry and tasteless and the grilled prawns were very overcooked, they were barely edible. The waitress was polite and understanding and knocked the prawns off the bill but unfortunately we left feeling unimpressed and still hungry. We wont be returning.

Used to be good - always been overpriced but with a good atmosphere. Service is now bad, Senior waitress/owner arrogant and unwelcoming. Completely ruined birthday celebrations and served very poor paella! I think they are riding on reputation alone and this will dissolve rather quickly at this rate. Over cooked rice and Fish is much better value at home! Sadly not going back as this was the second time over a four month period this happened! Time for New owners that actually like people visiting their restaurant!

I took my sister-in-law to La Farola on Saturday evening. We had the best time. It's not my first time to La Farola but I always enjoy the atmosphere the friendly bar staff and the tapas are consistently excellent.

This was the first time for my sister-in-law and she thought it was wonderful!!

Excellent!
