Often eateries have a tendency to over season, yet each dish was well-balanced and simple enough to enjoy each flavour. They made for a great topic of conversation and enjoyable way to share food with friends. Other tantalising tapas included the fried chicken con ajillo with an original green, parsley dressing on top, and lastly, the white anchovy fillets delicately laid out on a wooden dish.
Mark took the time to explain each dish in detail, and ensure we were well looked after throughout the night. It’s clear to see he is a passionate foodie, with his sustainable, organic approach to each dish and goes out of his way to make sure his patrons are happy.
Aside from impressive service, we were all spoiled by the use of dainty, hand painted glassware to sip our delectable Valdespino Pedro Ximenex sherry. And to top it all off, we had to scoff back a couple of churros each – a great way to kick back after a top notch evening.
El Faro ticked all the boxes, with its warm ambience, personable service and fantastic selection of tapas. I may have to come out of my winter hibernation more often, as this is a true Spanish jewel.
