Please not we open 12/6 every day but due to illness there is no food available until further notice. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our friends & look forward to meeting new ones. El Faro your friends in Calpe. Ian & Brigitte.

On first sight you might pass this bar without calling in. It is true that the bar has had problems recently due to bereavement and that at the moment meals are not being served but tapas began to appear towards the end of our stay which was delicious and that bodes well for the future.
Ian, the British owner, has been here for 19 years and is the fount of all knowledge and runs a nice multi national bar.
The bar was only 100 yards from our accommodation and the only one within a 20 minute walk so we found it a very welcome sight at the end of the day.

We did not actually eat here but used to have a bottle of wine before we went on to find a restaurant. Lovely place just on the edge of the old town. House wine 7.50 Euro how can you go wrong and usually bought out a small tapas with it to try.
