Family owned restaurant, with good service from father and son. Good value compared to other places in the area. The shopping complex it's in is very run down, but if you look past that, it's a very nice place to eat.

Faro2 gets sadder and sadder, though despite that this restaurant manages to produce some of the best steak I've had for a long while. It's friendly, not posh, and a bit haphazard, but without heading to Melonaras or Playa this is easily the best food you'll get in the area.

This restaurant is situated in Faro 2 shopping center. Shopping is not easy there because of insignificance of shops🌇 Anyway few restaurants there are and El Nueblo is one of them. Staff welcomes you kindly and service was ok, but some bumbling was on the go. About the food, it was good and I enjoyed my stake. My wife didn't... More

We found the restaurant on TA and had high expectations. We had paella, it was good 😊. The service have ever was messy, I think that was the best word for our experience. The order of the dishes was funny, and I ordered a beer more when the main course arrived, and the waiter confirmed it, but I never got... More

Good service, friendly and welcoming hospitality. Great food. Would recommend Wiener Schnitzel and salads. Kids meals are also good.

Tucked away in the basement of the Faro 2 Shopping Centre, El Nublo is a lovely under-stated restaurant with a certain charm of its own. Daniel welcomed us with a warm handshake and after ordering our meals he brought us some complementary home-made Canarian Soup which was delicious. My prawn and egg salad toastie was delicious and my husband, who... More

Had lunch today. Found a weird thing in the starter sallad (actually pulled out of my mouth!). Obviously a piece of the kind of mesh net you have around big hams! No apologies or nothing from the waiter. The pizza was one of the worst I've ever had. Avoid this place!
