Jose and the chef have owned Los Faroles for I think 4years now and Juan his father in law just has Brisa Marina which Francesco manages for him and Juan is semi retired but still pops in each day.

Juan retired, that's a laugh.
I remember some years back when he said he was going to retire we said he wouldn't last five minutes and we were right.

At first he would sit in Brisa Marina minding his own business and reading the paper. (February)
When we came back in June he was " Just helping out "

By September he was in full working mode again bless him

They serve really good excellent value breakfasts and it certainly wasn’t quiet Sunday morning or this morning

Hi,

We were there on opening day and was full all day.

Later back twice and could not get a seat, once in the morning an another at lunch time.

They did manage to squeeze us in later one night for drinks and ice cream and also one more lunch last week. Was also busy with locals having drinks and snacks later at night.

It's good to hear of a new business doing so well at the moment. Long may it continue😀 Looking forward to trying it when we are out later in the year.

Sorry, I meant the clientel were quiet. The place is very busy whenever we go out. Walked past tonight just now as we are staying above Los Faroles and it was busy. No music or large groups of youngsters. Good luck to them.
