Al Faro is a small restaurant on one of the main streets leading to a tourist-laden centre, though it feels rather uncrowded in comparison to what awaits you just a few hundred meters away.
We had tuna carpaccio, risotto nero and bread-crumbed fried swordfish. All the items were very tasty and the accompanying vino de casa was fine as well.

Stopped here for lunch on our wanderings around Cefalu. The town was very busy being May 1st. Staff were very friendly. We had starters and main course with a carafe of local white wine.
Reasonable menu choices, good views out to sea. All in all a very pleasant experience.

Al Faro is a small restaurant with a lovely relaxing interior. It is such a pretty room to eat a meal in.
Service was terrific and our meal was delicious.
The swordfish in a Sicilian sauce of capers, tomatoes, olives and wine was really outstanding. The mussels were clean and sweet.
For an enjoyable evening this is the place.

We could not fault the quality of the food which was excellent. The problem was a group of diners at the adjacent table. Three guests tried to smoke covertly at the table which is obviously illegal in Italy, and the waitress stopped this. The most annoying thing was that these same guests had a persistently yapping dog which the staff failed to address despite our complaints. This ruined an otherwise nice meal.
