Faro @ Mona

Berriedale, Hobart and Surrounds, Tasmania

Price: $$$$ - $$$$
Greek, Mediterranean


Faro is a European inspired bar at the acclaimed museum, MONA. It’s a tad confusing but ‘faro’ is the Spanish word for ‘lighthouse’, which is the English word for ‘pharos’, which is the Greek name of the new wing at MONA where the restaurant resides. The menu takes a Spanish bent with dishes such as manchego croquette and chargrilled octopus with green gazpacho. Start with a sherry and a nibble of jamon iberico with olives and peppers before moving onto a range of small share plates. It’s best to come with a group so you can taste as many dishes as possible but if it’s just two people, our suggestion would be to book in again for a follow up meal.
