El Farolito is a great restaurant right near the square in downtown Healdsburg. Good prices. I recommend the enchiladas. There is a full bar and seating in front and back of restaurant.

My husband enjoyed the carnitas, and I had some great mole chicken enchiladas along with delicious, fresh margaritas! The salsa with the chips is so good, and that is always a good sign for the food to come. The menu offers lots of choices, and the prices are great. After eating lots of fancy food and drinking too much wine... More

It's tough to find a relatively affordable restaurant in HBG. When you're tired of wine and pretension, drop into El Farolito for a bite of really good Mexican food, a margarita (or two), some super fresh salsa and you won't break the bank. I ordered the fish tacos...plenty for two, if you want to share. My husband had a couple... More

We were pointed to these two family run Mexican Restaurants just off the Healdsburg park in central Healdsburg and the sister restaurant in nearby Windsor on the Old Redwood Highway. We needed a "Nacho fix" and we were not disappointed! Great food with fresh ingredients, chips & salsa made daily and keep coming. Most of all, the folks who run... More

This place was quite busy on a Saturday night, and entirely too loud. Why does every place these days seem to go for all hard surfaces, and patrons who shout through all of dinner? the food was good. Thing is: the restaurant was written up as having "the best Mexican food in Sonoma County". Well, perhaps. But it would be... More

We ordered a chicken burrito and a chicken taco. Both items tasted good. The burrito was large enough to split. (My husband and I split a burrito. And, he had the taco). Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. We were seated immediately. We would return to this restaurant. The prices are very reasonable.

I have not eaten there for dinner, but if you are vegetarian, they make a great burrito. A whole wheat wrapper filled with rice, beans, grilled veggies and a vegan option available.

This is our first time in Healdsburg. My husband and I stopped in for lunch. Discovered great food in this family run restaurant. If you are a fan of mole you are in luck. Few restaurants make their own mole, however, El Farolito has a fabulous home made sauce which greatly pleased my husband. I was luck to get a... More

Very relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff. The food is fresh and well presented. Very creamy black beans and good rice. The fish tacos were over the top! Great lunch just off the square. A locals favorite!

The food and service were good. The service is prompt and they were very nice. My chicken enchiladas were good and the rice was good. The beans were a bit boring. I had a frozen strawberry margarita and it was okay. My friends enjoyed their dinners. I would eat here again.
