Very good food. Excellent stakes with 3 sauces. Great views. Only service could be a bit better organized and efficient, particularly when serving larger groups.

Very good food, view and good service!! The portions are quite small for the price, that’s the only thing they should improve.

Our other favorite restaurant with amazing view. If you are spending time on Faňabe beach and wondering where to eat well, come here. Pleasant service, excellent cuisine - the best seafood paella I've ever eaten.

I was working in the sunny Tenerife and i find this Bar Restaurant where i could have my break but in the same time working on my Laptop as i work in remote working.
The atmosfhere is brilliant and very inviting at the beginnig, staff are very friendly and very hard worker, they make sure eveything is ok with what you need , the quird thing i have been seen and not only me but my co workers as well , is that all staff works for many hours and they try to give you the best service in a struggling way . My opinion :they are very short staff and they work vey long hours: i was there from breakfast , lunch, and dinner and i saw always the same waiter , this happened few times. I am wondering how many hours they are working and how they can deal with all customers especially at night ( we was 4 people one night and we was all thinking the same) We could not ask for more but i am sure the owner or how is lookign fro this busines , will get what custumers are looking for not only food and drink but normal atmosphere .

Hello Dennis,

Thank you very much for your positive assessment of our work and environment.
We respect all opinions, but we believe that sometimes you have to do an exercise in empathy. Perhaps in remote working it is not noticeable but in restaurant business these are very difficult times. As you can see, most restaurants are closed due to the difficulties of Covid-19.
Despite this, we have remained open since August 1 with the logical difficulties.
Below we clarify the hours of our staff that seem to concern you:
In the morning, our wonderful team of Gloria and Giorgia, who work part-time, attend to you. In the afternoon and in the evening you are attended by our brilliant team of Aziz, Sara, Oscar, Enmanuele and Daria, all of them also work part time. None of them work more than 6 hours a day. However, returning to empathy, it would not be a bad idea for you to set up a restaurant and organise the schedules of your staff and perhaps understand what we are talking about.

To conclude, we will be happy to see you as you have written, "in our brilliant and inviting atmosphere”, and so that you continue to enjoy your remote working while watching the sea. And stop worrying about the hours of our employees, we take care of that.
In fact, we started to worry about you… since you were in our restaurant from morning to night, we have the disquieting question, how many hours are you working...

Best regards,

Team La Farola del Mar
