Arrived on spec. Food was of good quality (agree with other positive comments on the paella - it was very good), service was efficient and very friendly. There is a kids menu but they didn't seem to promote it for some reason. Slightly on the pricy side (family of 6, 6 X main courses , 4 X desserts, bottle of... More

We dined here on our first night of our hols, the service was good and the food was nicely presented. We would probably dine here again. I would recommend El Faro

The place is beautiful...sailing themes, and a view from above to the nightlife below. Don't get me wrong, we ate well here, but I was not blown away.

We had a very nice dinner here. Our second visit. We had various dishes, both entrecote and fish. And a local red wine. All were great. Including service. Admittedly, the prices are a bit stiff, but we feel that this restaurant is one of the best in Playa de las Americas.

We have just had a wonderful meal here as a family of 7 (2young kids in tow) We had a lovely meal, my mother in law and I shared a lovely bottle of cava and a superb seafood paella! The service was second to none and we will definitely be going back!!
