There are so many choices to eat dinner on Hidalgo. Fayne's can easily fall into the top ten best places on this street. Would it make the top ten on the entire island? Not sure. But this place is a solid choice if you don't want to leave the playa Norte area.
We visited Faynes for dinner. A quick review of the menu showed very little vegetarian choices. I asked the host if he would let me bring my vegetarian entree from a different restaurant because my son and husband wanted things on the Faynes menu. They graciously let me do this which was very kind of them. My son and husband had a wonderful seafood dinner which they both thoroughly enjoyed. And my white wine was great. My son ordered a fried whole red snapper and my husband ordered an impressive seafood platter. Service was outstanding. They have a little dog that visited our table to say hello often (his name was titis? Sp?) and that just made the night even better. There was live music (soft, Latin/Caribbean sounds at the time of our visit which was early in the evening). We were seated right in front of the stage but the music wasn't overwhelmingly loud and instead was a lovely addition to the ambiance.
The decor is a little run down and the chair upholstery had holes/falling apart. But it's easy to overlook this when the food and service were spot on!
