We ate here yesterday. Best we've eaten out, in a long time! I had a wonderful ceur the filet, My wife has some sort of gypsy-barbecue-sword and my son had a schnitzel. All served with a fresh sallad, boiled vegetables, Canarian potatoes and a smile. Very pleasent and enjoyable.

Situated in run down shopping centre not far from our resort, this place gave us one of the best meals of our holiday, lasagne is delicious, food is plentiful and service was excellent. A must to visit.

Visited El Nublo and have a delicious evening. Loved the food! Generous portions, nice displayed and very tasty. Can't fault the staff either. They all worked hard to make us feel welcome. Thanks for a great evening. Only negative is the surrounding area. Faro2 where the restaurant is, is slowly crumbling away. It looks quite dead, but is still worth... More

My wife and I went there for dinner on 6th December and found the food to be very good indeed. Great steak and fried fish mains with good quality veg and Canarian potatoes. The service was top notch and very considerate. If I am back in Maspalomas in the near future I will be going back.

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.
