I really enjoy Favela's. They have an excellent tequila bar. I recommend the albondigas soup, very good. The mole enchiladas, enchiladas suizas, and the shrimp salad. Getting hungry and thirsty. Try the matador margarita. Strong. Also ask for a shot of Maestro Dobel with orange wedge instead... read more

We decided to revisit Favela's Fusion to see if the service is getting better. To our delight, the usual server was not there. The Shrimp Ceviche was outstanding! The Acapulco Ceviche was a bit too acidic, but still very well executed. The empanadas were good too. Unfortunately, our server brought us the check without us asking for it. If management... More

Favela's fusion is a nice dining experience. The food is fresh and inventive. They have a great selection of tequilas. Some of the prices are a little high for what you receive. I think they are trying to be an upscale, Mexican restaurant. They are different. Just not different enough. Definitely check them out, you won't be disappointed.

We had the ceviche and the empanadas. Both great! Server did good, until she brought the check without us requesting it. We were still enjoying our drinks and desert. We felt rushed to eat and leave. Keep in mind there were no other clients and it was noon. What is the rush? Please don't do that. It brings the whole... More

This is not your typical traditional Mexican place. The food is a little more interesting especially for Fairfield. The mole on the chicken enchilada was really flavorful. I haven't found a better mole anywhere else yet.

We've been living in the area for several years now, and have yet to find that restaurant that combines both good food, together with a slightly more elegant/sophisticated atmosphere. Favela Fusion fills that void. The food was quite good! It is a twist on Mexican food (not sure where the reference to Brazilian slums comes from in the name of... More

Visiting the Fairfield area for the first time, I struggled to find good dining choices. I asked my GPS for restaurants, scolled through the choices, and pulled this one from the air, based on the name and a mental dice roll. I was very happy with Favela's, and came back the next evening for more. Moderately noisy but happy atmosphere,... More

A family favorite, I have enjoyed this place every time I have visited with consistently high quality service and great food. Love the ambience and atmosphere. It is big enough to accomodate families comfortably and sports bar fans alike but not too big to feel impersonal. Our service was exceptional with our waitress cheerful and attentive. - We were served... More

We've eaten here several times over the last couple of years, the most recently on a Saturday night. Normally we eat at tables, but this last time I was alone so sat at the bar. Same menu. Service is very good at Favela's with a staff that really hustles and is very friendly. Whereas some of the items are similar... More
