The staff was very friendly and polite. It was one of the best meals we had in Andalusia. We will absolutely go to... More

A bit more fancy place to eat. Possible to have tapas in the bar area or a nicer meal in their restaurant close to the wine "cellar"..

Rarely does one find all three elements of great food, excellent service and fine dining atmosphere all of the highest order. Such was our memorable experience at El Faro de El Puerto. What's even more impressive is that this was a repeat of the same experience we had at El Faro de Cadiz. As retired world travelers we can say... More

We chose the Tasting menu. We were surprised by the innovative tastes and beautiful presentations. There were several dishes, all very tasty. The price was €65 pp, and... More

I have been to El Faro del Puerto for a lot of years now, over 20 years, and never had a complaint about their treatment or food. Sometimes they may be more brilliant, others they might have been not so much, but never dull or disappointing. Some of my favourite plates ever are cooked by them, like the so well... More

We had the tasting menu at this very grand restaurant. The food was well cooked and we had a lovely meal although the cooking is not as innovative and interesting as some places we have been. Service is very old school but friendly too.

This is a nice restaurant with great staff. It is quite pricey though and food was okay. The plates are tasty and garnished nice but I don't think I will be coming back due to the price. Might be nice to take wife out for anniversary but definitely only once a year
