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

Really nice tapas food. Tiny restaurant with only 9 or 10 tables so it was relatively quiet but still had a decent atmosphere.

We booked not knowing what to expect, but the meal was outstanding, certainly comparable to good tapas in Spain. Excellent value overall and we will be back, with friends whoever in the area. A real Gem of a restaurant.

We are staying in Porth and this establishment caught our eye early on - unfortunately we aren't 'allowed' to visit though - like others have pointed out, guests under 14 aren't welcome. I'm sure this must also disappoint others too - our daughter (aged almost 12 and about to start senior school) is not disruptive, is respectful of others and... More

We stayed in Porth and decided to eat here for one night as it was a stones throw from our b&b. Luckily we decided to book a few hours before which was lucky as they were turning people away when we arrived. The food was amazing, perfect tapas dishes reasonably priced. Would recommend!!

I'd never been into a tapas bar before but Estrella Morada certainly showed me what I'd been missing. Lovely food, great service and a great host, couldn't ask for more.

We went every night we were staying in Porth which says it all. Great food, good service and atmosphere. All at reasonable prices. Wish we lived nearer and could visit more often
