El Farol Restaurant Review: El Farol is as much about the entertainment as it is about the Spanish cuisine. Set in an 1835 adobe building along the heavily trafficked Canyon Road, the restaurant has the warm rustic feel of a Spanish tavern. Each night during the summer, flamenco musicians and dancers enliven the culinary experience. Depending on the day of the week, you can also partake in trivia challenges, tap your feet to bluesy tunes, or shake your hips to salsa beats on the warped wooden floor. El Farol’s menu includes the popular paella and flavorful tapas like sautéed garlic shrimp with lime and sherry. During the high season, order a glass of wine and some tapas on the elevated patio and settle in for a steady stream of tourist-watching action.
