We had a great night here, the food was amazing and reminded me of my time in Spain ! Really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and manner of not only the staff but also the other customers. Will definitely return.

Enjoyed a family meal here in the tapas bar. The welcome, and the service, was outstanding. The food was served promptly, all the dishes were well cooked and overall we were well looked after. Always happy to return here and eat.

Friendly stuff, amazing steak, and very well priced. I recommend mushrooms in garlic butter, followed by sirloin steak medium-rare with peppercorn sauce. Excellent!

Valentines evening we went to La Farola, not our first choice but we left it late to book. Couple of years ago we would not have been able to get a table here either. Our first three choices in East Rinstead were booked up. However...More

Hadn't been there for a while as we thought our previous visit was a bit disappointing, but this time really enjoyed it. Good food served quickly (Tapas) and staff very friendly. Family all liked it, our 12 year old son is a fussy eater and...More
