I liked the family who serve the community with this gathering place. The food is good and the prices are in keeping with the area. It gets very busy from 1:00 to 3:00 PM during the week.

We visited this restaurant on a lunch junket to Tepic from Puerto Vallarta. It is a hidden treasure. You can barely see the entry as it is behind/next to a club on Insurgentes. It is a very outdoor feel. We had Paella that was EXCELLENT. Great Service and reasonable prices. We will be back !!!

I just went to Tepic and I was told, visiting El Farallon was a must. Absolutelly correct piece of advice. Very good local food, with seafood as their speciality, you must try the "fish zarandeado", believe me, you wont regret it. A simple place, with simple dishes, all very tasty in a very relaxed atmosphere. If you are looking for... More

We were invited for lunch at this open air resturant by our host and we thoroughly enjoy it. We had some authentic food that tasted superb. The grilled fish is highly recommended here. It was a very pleasant experience for us
