They do a nice job

Great food, really. Service was good and atmosphere comfortable. All-in-all a very good value. I'd definitely recommend it to friends and those inquiring.

The staff is friendly and the restaurant is clean. I had a platter with three tacos: a fish, a barbacoa and a steak. The barbacoa taco was particularly flavorful and juicy -downright delicious. The steak taco was pretty good as well. Unfortunately, the fish taco was inedible. The first bite of fish that I took was so bitter that I... More

My daughter and I were in town for only the night. We happened to park only a half a block away. We checked out the menu and the daily special which looked good. We walked all around the square looking at the different places and ended up back at El Farolito. A few reasons were one of course the menu... More

Very enjoyable, with lots of enticing menu options. We thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary chips with a great salsa and were very grateful to get a refill. We had the enchiladas and the steak burrito, and were not disappointed, although it should be noted that the burrito is huge. Our servers were very pleasant and attentive. We would go back again.

The prawn burrito was very good. Service acceptable. The only little irritation was they charged a dollar for about a tablespoon of sour cream. Usually free with a burrito. Would recommend.

As a rule for savvy travelers, finding a place where the locals frequent is the best way to find a decent eatery. During an extended stay in Healdsburg we surveyed several locals about their favorite Mexican joint. El Farolito inevitably made the top of the list for Healdsburg. In the last few weeks we have dined at this friendly restaurant... More

Out of a three night stay in Healdsburg, we ate here twice! The food was so good and the bar service was terrific. The prices were very reasonable.

Pedro has stepped up his game and come up with some nice dishes. The shrimp tacos were great, Crunchy, Fresh Shrimp with a cabbage slaw, very tasty.

We had the nachoes and fajitas burrito and both were amazing. The waitress was attentive. I would recommend it if you are looking for quality Mexican food.
