A lovely friendly Spanish restaurant with great selection if meat and fish. Staff helpful and attentive. Right by sea and a nice quieter side of promenade

Recenty went here whilst on holiday in torrox. Had a gorgeous steak first time and then pre-ordered paella for our second trip (has to be preordered) which was delicious!

Wonderful range of Meats and fish cooked in a wide variety of styles. Their mixed grill is one of my favourite meals but you need to be hungry!!! great value for money.

We have visited La Farola many, many times and last night as always, everything was excellent.
This was the quietest I have seen this restaurant, only approximately thirty diners but then it was mid-week at the end of November. Although fewer people, the atomosphere was great and lovely and warm with the efficient patio heaters inside. The staff are always welcoming and attentive. The food freshly cooked and so tasty, I had my favourite dish, Pescado Brochette and wasn't disappointed. This really has to be one of the best restaurants on Torrox Costa.

We've been to La Farola many times over the years - but never for lunch until our most recent visit to Torrox Costa. Not wanting a heavy meal, my wife chose a Prawn Cocktail (and a plate of chips - and why not, they are freshly cooked, not frozen). I chose Pez Espada (swordfish), with a few 'patatas'...and a bottle of chilled house 'Rosada'.
As usual, the service was excellent - as was the quality of the food.
The Prawn Cocktail was well presented and very refreshing.
The Swordfish was tasty - very nearly as good as the 'Mediterraneo' which (in my humble opinion) serves the best swordfish in Torrox Costa.
We are already planning our next evening visit - but can't decide between the beef fillet (with a choice of sauces), seafood stew (steaming hot on these cooler late October nights), lamb in honey sauce (one of their specialities), or even Rabo de Toro (bull tail). Spoiled for choice.
