Which are your specialties?
We are a Spanish/Mediterranean kitchen that uses high quality Icelandic produce. We have a full range menu from fish to meat dishes.

We also highly recommend sharing our food with your party varying from smaller plates of Tapas and appetisers to mains and desserts which can be an extremely fun dining experience.

We pride ourselves with everything on our menu being made from scratch, the sauces are made inhouse and the bread & desserts are baked
and made by our wonderful chefs!

Should I make a table reservation?
We strongly advise to book a table although it is not compulsory, especially on weekends which are our most busy days. You can either make a reservation online clicking this link: https://www.dineout.is/elfaro?lng=en or call us on phone nr: (+354) 790 7111
How far in advance can I make a reservation?

3 months in advance

Do I have to tip the waiter?

No, tips are not mandatory in Iceland. Any gratuity paid on the evening of your reservation is at the discretion of each guest and is not required.

Can I cancel or reschedule my reservation?
Yes, you can cancel or reschedule your reservation. We would highly appreciate for you to give us as much notice as possible so other guests can reserve your table.
May I see a copy of the menu in advance?

Sure, our menus are easily accessible on our website, see link: https://elfarorestaurant.is/menu/

Please note that this menu is for representative purposes only, as we sometimes have additional courses of the day or something special to offer
outside of the menu on a given day. You can check our facebook to see if we have any offers or additional courses outside our menu that day.

How long will our dinner last?
The average meal at El Faro last for about 1,5 – 2,5 hrs depending on the time of arrival. Early evening bookings last for 1,5 hrs, then the table is
reserved again for a later booking. After dinner the guests can move to our bar or sofa area for drinks or play pool or darts. The later dining bookings provide a better chance of sitting for a longer time if you have the latest reservation of the day. Then you can keep your table until our bar closes.

If you have scheduling restrictions, please let us know, and we will do our
best to accommodate.

Does El Faro have a dress code?

No, El Faro does not have a required dress code. We just want people to feel as comfortable as they can by wearing whatever makes them feel good. Everyone is welcome at El Faro!

Can you accommodate big groups?
Absolutely! We love to have groups over 🙂 Nothing compares to sharing our fun food and sangria pitchers with a great group of friends!

Having groups dine with us requires more planning, therefore we kindly ask groups to reserve with some notice if possible. You can contact us over our email: [email protected] or call us: (+354) 790 7111.

We also try our best to accommodate special requests outside the standard group menu but keep in mind that requires more notice.

Will you stay open a bit later for a large group?
