We were looking for a nice tapas style dinner and came across El Faro in Elliot stables which was a great choice! The menu has a wide selection of meat, vegetarian and seafood dishes all priced similarly, so you get a nice choice if your sharing. Every dish was beautiful! The stuffed calamari was a favourite. I would definitely eat here again.

The full package – El Faro delivered at the highest level in all aspects.

The food was tasty, varied and authentic (and very quick to the table!) Impossible to find a front-runner amongst the dishes on offer, as they were all outstanding - but the mussels are an absolute must! The service was relaxed yet highly efficient and the ambience of Elliot Stables added to the authenticity of the experience.

If you haven’t visited El Faro – quite simply, you’re missing out.

We had a lovely dinner here, with great recommendations from the waiter (possible an owner). Enjoyed every dish, the mussels were very generous, perfectly cooked and very tasty. Great atmosphere inside Elliot stables.

This place is located in Elliot Stables on Elliot st., which looks like a very modern contemporary food court. Very nice atmosphere and seems like the tables are shared between several restaurants. We had tapas to start while we watched the cook make the Papaya outside of the restaurant. they boast the only authentically cooked Papaya in NZ. It was phenomenal! Very flavourful and filling. Highly recommend eating here.
