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...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...More

Ate lunch here before heading to a wedding. Probably shouldn't have; totally gorged myself on the HUGE bowl of guac and the fish tacos. Food and service was great.

Welcoming place, with friendly service. But food was pretty mediocre, and sangria less than mediocre. Inexpensive, but not a huge bargain.

Decided to take a break from wine and ate at the bar at El Farolito just off the square in Healdsburg. Great food and many Mexican beers on tap which is nice. Bartender (Chey?) was outstanding!

Had read glowing reviews on Trip Advisor but my food fell short of expectations. Chips and salsa were very good. I ordered a Carnitas plate but kitchen was out, switched to Chili Verde. The plate came with tasty refried black beans, excellent rice and green...More
