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 visited El Faro twice on our visit. First time for Sunday lunch which was pleasant with nice servings and good price. Next time on a Saturday evening in the inner restaurant. 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

Four enjoyed the sixty euro tasting menu. Excellent taste and flavours, imaginative use of ingredient especially fruit. Service was very good. Wines included in the price were well matched. The restaurant is twelve miles from Jerez but it's a journey you should make. The food was exceptional. A special meal best meal in Spain for years. Go! Thank you Fernando... More

Superb fish and seafood restaurant. We felt it was even better than its sister restaurant in Cadiz. Excellent wine selection. Food was outstanding. The salad of fresh figs and sardines would almost be worth a trip to the restaurant. The excellent service and ambience was rather stiff and very classic / old fashioned. But it suited the place and we... More

This is the sister restaurant of El Faro in Cadiz, with which it easily holds its own in terms of quality of food and service. It is located on the outskirts of the town, which means a 20 minute walk or a taxi. It is a converted private mansion, surrounded by well tended gardens. We ate tapas in the bar,... More
