  • Be Mine, Let's Wine and Dine!

Oh love is in the air…. it's that time of the year again and La Farola is so excited to be celebrating in style! With the cold air blowing fiercely and the the temperature continuing to drop, our cozy and sweet spot on the corner of Therberton and Upper Street is the best restaurant in Islington to snuggle up in with your loved one on the most romantic day of the year! Not only do we provide the beautifully sweet and romantic atmosphere absolutely necessary for a wonderful night out, we also have the most amazing special Valentine's Day menu filled with dishes curated especially for the evening. We've thought long and hard about flavour profiles, complementing flavours and unique twists on traditional recipes to make your Valentine's Day a special one at La Farola!

Our menu was specifically designed for two making La Farola the perfect place to bring your date. At £30 per head you're not only getting fresh and seasonal dishes, but you're getting your money's worth as well. For appetisers, you will be sharing a delicious and specially imported mixed cheese and jamon platter featuring some of our guests' favourites. With cured meats such as Chorizo Iberico and Bresaola and cheeses like our Rosemary Manchego and Ermensenda, those are bound to a tasty beginning to a lovely meal. Add on some Pan con Tomate and some Aceitunas, your appetisers are bound to set you up quite nicely for the evening ahead.

Going on to starters you'll get a choice of our Queso de Cabra Gratinado, which is a lovely goat cheese gratin with grilled figs and passion fruit… oh, what a dream. Looking for something a bit more different, try the Vieras a la Vainila! Pan fried scallops served with a vanilla alioli, served with a side of chicory in a rose vinaigrette and sunflower seeds. Moving on to our main courses, you could try the beautiful Solomillo de Ternera a la Trufa, which is our grilled beef fillet served with shimeji truffle sauce and a purple potato purée. We always try to source local (other than our hard to replace imported Spanish ingredients) and organic meats and vegetables to create dishes that reflect the season that are simplistic yet complex in their flavour profiles. We'd do almost anything to ensure you and your loved one the most romantic evening. All you gotta do is show up and we'll do all the hard work. We'll leave the romancing to you…
