A decent restaurant with prices approximately half of those charged in Maspalomas, we visited three times, my wife had the Chicken Caesar Salad each and every time, she enjoyed it, I dodged the salad.

Don't be put of by the run down faro2 the service is amazing and the food is lovely. I had the sizzling garlic prawns and the spare ribs which just fell off the bone. My wife had lasagne and my daughter had a pizza which you could tell both were homemade. At the end of our meal the owner gave... More

Fantastic meal just this minute finished at El Nublo and I can honestly say it was the best meal we have had so far in Gran Canaria. The staff were first class and the portion size was outstanding. We will be coming back.

The Canarian stew was really nice and the staff were friendly and service was good. But we asked for well done steaks and got almost raw meat, even when we sent it back it still came back very pink..Such a pity because we had heard some great things about this place.

Visited El Nublo as it was highly recommended on trip advisor and we were staying close by. Staff very pleasant. I had leg of lamb on the bone, was the toughest lamb I've ever had. My partner had fish but half of it was skin, scales and lots of bones. Very disappointed.

Very very rude and abrupt staff !!! We're not the type that want "waiting on hand and foot" or for the waiter to keep hovering over and insistently asking if "is your meal OK ?" But they did seem more intent on keeping the bigger parties "sweet" even though we both had ordered the most expensive meals on the menu.... More

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.
