El Farole is only remodeling to be even better - I know, hard to believe, right?! It reopens August 1st. Unfortunately we're leaving town July 31st. Very sad.

Enjoy a deluxe treat from Spain, full of fresh fish and jumbo shrimp. Reservations are needed but great tables are normally available in the barroom.

Spanish flair tapas place. Perfect for a lunch while on Upper Canyon Road. I got the eggplant panini with side salad, and it was delicious. Wine selection was a bit limited but wines were familiar and decent brands. My server was attentive and friendly.
