Love going to La Farola! Super friendly staff and family run. Lovely tapas dishes. I haven't tried the restaurant part of this lovely place, but totally enjoy the informality of the recently extended tapas part of this restaurant. Lots of favourite dishes all freshly prepared and speedily delivered!

First visit was last night, and booked by e mail as I wanted to be sure we could get a) an early dinner as we where going to the theatre, and b) I wanted to try their Paella for the 3 of us. Fantastic personal e mail replies, which confirmed times and meal. We arrived early so they saw us... More

We ate at this restaurant on Valentine's day 2017. My girlfriend and I had always driven past this place (having lived in East Grinstead for quite some time) but had never actually visited it. Since developing a taste for tapas we had to try it out! Our table was quite out of the way and the atmosphere was nice. We... More

Most dishes are deep fried, staff is rude, diabolic waiting times, tapas area too noisy and full of drunks, it is not authentic Spanish food and so overpriced . Avoid, Avoid, Avoid!!!

Same menu for a long time with minor changes but always a good selection of specials. Great staff always friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere.

We love tapas & after recently moving to the area and hearing good reviews we were looking forward to it. We called to book & was happy to pay the £10 per person deposit as we was a large group. On the night we got there, there was a 21st birthday that had a party with dj in the middle... More

We visited on a Friday night after receiving some great news. The company was the best part of the evening. Service was average- a little over attentive- one waitress after another asking if we were ok, showed a lack in communication and felt like we were being hurried to leave. Food was average- absolutely not prepared fresh and nothing special-... More

Came on the recommendation of locals to meet with friends and enjoy an informal tapas. Good service, food quality, ample portions. Perhaps slightly pricier than I expected - our guests said that prices had recently gone up so not really the 'cheap early evening snack' that I expected. Less of a 'bargain night out - hope new pricing doesn't put... More

Tapas on Sunday with my niece and her husband. Wonderful menu (I loved the seafood soup) and all of the tapas were brilliant. It was a little pricey (ie £2.50 per king prawn with garlic mayo) but not bad. Great service and no wonder if is so popular.
