“to be recommended”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

We have been here a number of times over the last six years and always found the food and service to be more than satisfactory. Friends of ours have been and asked that if I write, would I be sure to offer a positive comment. Both lunches and evening meals meet with one's expectations and at a reasonable price

“Well Worth the Walk along the 'Paseo'”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

La Farola is at the far (El Morche) end of the 'Promenade' (Paseo Maritimo), that runs from the Lighthouse at Torrox Costa.
It is open all year round (closed Thursdays), with open air dining in the summer months with views of the beach and sea.
Winter dining is technically 'outside' in an area enclosed by pvc marquee style walls, heated by gas patio heaters.
There is a very varied menu - typically Spanish - with most of the usual fish and meat dishes available on the Paseo - with the addition of specialist dishes such as Bull (Ox) Tail, BBQ Leg of Lamb; Lamb in Honey and a particularly filling Seafood Stew (see pic).
The house Red Wine (Vina Mantibre - Rioja) is truly delicious, and very reasonably priced.
Service is as you would expect - friendly and courteous, in a laid back semi-formal style...

“Local Spanish restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We visit this restaurant regularly and are never disappointed. Great for lunches and evening meals. Varied menu offering a good selection of fish and meat dishes. You can also sit in the bar area and enjoy a few tapas.
