Always happy to dine here

A lovely quiet little restaurant. Our family and friends love it as much as we do and are always happy when we dine at El Condor. Booking is essential as it seems to be full whenever we go. Really enjoy the food and the hosts are great.

We had a lovely meal at El Condor. Mediterranean food made with care. The hosts are charming, down to earth and very welcoming without being intrusive in this tiny restaurant. Thank you.

Run by a husband/wife combo it's a quaint little place. Always busy, because the food is simple and delicious. The specials are always nice and the pizzas are quality, on a perfect thin base.

Have been a few times and always get nice, friendly service and has a relaxed feel. Had vegetarian cannelloni which was nicely presented in a piping hot dish. I did find it lacking a bit in taste, but then I do like things quite flavoursome. BYO is rare these days so really nice to have. Prices a little high I... More

Have eaten here a number of times - the customer service is always top notch, it's nice and cozy in there, the dishes tasty (I have only eaten the pastas so can't comment on their pizzas), and it's a byo which is always a big draw for me. The only thing I would say is that the portion sizes are... More

What a delightful spot, visiting from akl and read the reviews here so gave it a go. Friendly service, delicious steak and potato grain, and pizza. Chef busies himself as one man band and does it really well. Loved the music too. Would definitely recommend this for a quiet, pleasant night out.

Run by a lovely, genuine, talented couple, I have eaten at El Condor many a time and adored the pizzas and pasta available. Not only does Paul make the best pasta and pizza, he is a talented artist - check out the mini gallery upstairs of some of his wonderful work. Catherine is a ray of sunshine. It's impossible to...

Small but great food and very helpful couple running it, probably highlight of our eating in New Plymouth, can take your own wine and large supermarket nearby which sells wine. Not a gooble and go type - but we found it really great (we an over 60's couple in no hurry).

From the street this place looks nothing special - even the interior is a little plain and wouldn't win any awards for presentation but the food is fabulous, full of flavour, well cooked, unpretentious. The service was good, wine list varied - we chose a lovely Argentinian red. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for good wholesome food at... More
