El Faro is a Spanish inspired restaurant and tapas bar with an intimate and rather eclectic atmosphere. El Faro is spanish for The Lighthouse.

The owners of El Faro, Mark Ansley and his partner Sarah, have had a love of Spain and it's people ever since they lived in Europe some years ago, Mark has been a chef for over half his short life and has a passion for getting back to basics with food and a strong belief in sustainable natural farming, local produce and wild meats, he uses the best possible ingredients to put together his ever changing blackboard tapas menu

Whether it is a quick Pre Theatre meal, romantic dinner or letting your hair down, you will love the Mojitos, Caipirinhas, Sangria, Spanish Wines, Beer & funky music.

El Faro consistently receives accolades for its sumptuous green lip mussel pots, tapas, organic beef and vegetarian dishes.
