Description: We are a small family run Tapas Bar facing the beach in Porth Nr Newquay. Sorry we do not allow children under 14 as we are a fully licensed public bar, adults haven, adults have to have somewhere to go without children. You can sit & enjoy a glass or bottle (from £14 per bottle) of Spanish wine/ sangria (£8 per half litre or £15 per litre)or beer in our relaxing bar or out looking over the beach or if you feel a bit hungry why not try some our our tapas. All our tapas dishes are cooked fresh to order (if hot) & are from authentic Spanish recipes. Dishes cost from £3 (olives) to £6.75 (scallops & morcia) We say for a snack 1-2 dishes or substanial meal average of 5 dishes per couple if you want a full meal

1st Time Tapas for me, having gone to Newquay for a 4 day break with my mate we fancied something different, looked up Spanish on Trip Advisor and read the reviews The Estrella was chosen. I'd read one persons review that slated the owner, so was a little apprehensive when we walked in, but I must say the owner was... More

Yet another lovely meal in this super tapas bar. Friendly staff (1) excellent service. Also you are not rushed to vacate your table. Good value for money. I would certainly recommend a visit

Wonderful Tapas, extremely tasty, tastiest I have ever had, and I'm always eating tapas (including in several cities in and all around Spain and Islands). The chef is just brilliant, and seems to do it all by herself. Just mouth watering and totally satisfying. I cannot underestimate just how tasty this is. The potatas bravas were lovely and garlicky, the... More

Visited here as our apartment was a 5 minute walk, The food and drink was excellent and the Waiter/Barman was very welcoming. The food was very rich in flavour. Nice little place.

Had not tried Tapas before but my wife persuaded me to do so whilst on holiday near Newquay. So good we booked for the next night as well. Does not look much from outside and opening is a bit random but do not be put off. Once inside the atmosphere is good and, despite what was said in a recent... More

Front of house owner really needs to polish up on his people skills or employ a more accommodating person. The only reason for people returning must be the good food. They will most certainly lose business because of his rudeness, actually they have with us!

This was recommended to us by the b&b we were staying in, and we certainly weren't disappointed, in fact we went twice in the 4 nights we stayed in Porth. Excellent food, lovely atmosphere, reasonable prices, what more could you ask. Not really a place that under 14's would enjoy, and really nice to find somewhere that isn't full of... More

A great place for tapas and a drink. Not anywhere close to being in the same league as most other Spanish/tapas restaurants especially chains. This restaurant is miles above the rest. Very tasty food cooked as Spanish food should. The no under 14s complaints people have uttered on here are silly. So they haven't eaten here yet they come to... More

The food was good (but not mega) but despite a warning that food would take a while, we consider 40 minutes with absolutely nothing to eat as being far too long. Service perfunctory at best. Really can't understand why reviews for this place have been so positive. it wasn't even crwoded when we went, even in august. If you are... More
