It was by accident we happened across this Mexican restaurant and we were happy we did. It was a fun atmosphere with good, fresh Mexican food.

This place is just off the square. I come here quite often because the food is good and consistent with minimal delay. The chef has a brother who runs the Agave restaurant over by Safeway. Between the two, I still prefer El Farolito. I usually get a burrito with cheese melted on top or the Chili Verde which is always... More

I've been going to this place since Sanchez and his wife (who used to cook the chips in an open fire grate in the kitchen owned it) Much more high end now with a real bar et. al. Food is good, location perfect if your'e paying $375 for one of your downtown rooms- leave the sockless loafers and designer handbags... More

My husband and I had this place recommended to us from the gal at the Visitors Center. The exterior was nothing special, the interior was festive with 2 bar areas and lots of tables. The surprise was the service and the food. Our server was smiling and made us feel like she was happy we were there. I ordered fish... More

We love Mexican food. Ate here late on a Saturday night. Not too crowded then. The service was excellent, the margaritas were very good, and the Super Prawns burrito was outstanding! It's not easy to get some of the items on the menu in some other restaurants, but we had a good experience and our visit to Healdsburg's El Farolito... More
