Had a very good meal, the setting is reminiscent of a war zone as the Faro 2 shopping center is partly fenced off and falling apart, but the restaurant was not. Had a soup to share based on local recipes, this was home made and very good. The mains; rabbit was that a whole rabbit jointed and very good. The... More

We were staying close by and noticed this place when visiting the supermarket in the centre. We were a large family group with my parents, and children included and visited twice for dinner. The food and service were both fantastic. The steaks were amazing! My 7 year old daughter was very happy as they had steak in the children's menu... More

Came here after looking at the reviews online. Faro 2 is certainly what appears to be a derelict shopping centre but El Nublo is definitely worth a visit. Service a little scatty but mainly due to one waiter who didn't really speak a word of English. Food was really really good. Nice soup as a freebie to start with then... More

Very good and big dishes, with the benefit of a super nice owner, dealing with you in Spanish way adapted to your skills (I guess he speaks and understand most tourist languages ;-)). Recommendable! The Faroe2 centre is though a very badly maintained centre with lot of closed shops, but El Nublo is worth the drive.

We visited this place twice during our 10 day holiday in February 2017. If you stand outside holiday works theme park, with your back to the Ferris wheel is, and then look directly ahead, you will see the faro2 centre... it's quite an eerie place really, and it's a shame that a lot of the bars, shops and restaurants have...

We four middle aged gay British guys had spent a late day on the beach (late night out last night!) and we're ready for a local (to our resort) meal. Three of us had ventured to Faro2 twice before to check it out. It was a toss up between here and the neighbouring BroncII. We arrived at Faro2 shopping centre... More

Not to be confused with a nearby El Nublo grill restaurant. This restaurant is on an elevated level next to an amusement park and bowling alley. Went with my family with no expectations and had an excellent meal at a reasonable price. We had Canarian potatoes for starters and various meat dished for mains. My wife who is gluten free... More

Awesome food, both in quality and quantity. The downside is that the place is in the middle of nowhere, at least in out of the high season period.

Went for a weekday lunch and found the place practically deserted. The Faro 2 centre where it is situated was the main shopping centre west of Playa des Angles when it first opened 35 years ago. However, with the massive development of Maspalomas it has now been left behind. On my visit the upper storey was cordoned off, ostensibly for... More
