6 of us ate there one evening after catching the Road Train from Cala Toret. We had a look at some of the other restaurants but thought that El Faro offered better choices. We were not dissapointed and would definitely return if we were to go back again. Great food at affordable prices.

Called in whilst visiting the town recently and both decided to try the Scampi, crisp breadcrumbs and tasty Scampi, excellent wine and good selection of beers. Service, first class, chatty and cheerful and not pushy at all. Relaxed atmosphere with great view of the bay. excellent value for money.

The food is amazing, the staff are lovely and my family have been going there for 20 years! You honestly can't beat their grilled squid or mussels. You cant beat the caramel vodka shot with the bill either 😆We love it there and think everyone should go. Thank you for your fantastic hospitality

The food here was really great, had the grilled sole and it was fabulous. Potions are huge so if you're not too hungry don't have a starter.

We had Chateaubriand here and it was so good we went back on the last night of our holiday to have it again. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Sit here and look across the sea to the lighthouse (El faro).

Visited this restaurant following previous positive reviews but we were very disappointed. I had the monkfish and prawn kebabs which were very dry and my son the fiduela which was ok. The other two dishes, again were ok. However, the staff were very friendly and attentive making it an enjoyable evening but won't be returning.
