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.

Gorgeous tapas in a relaxed place right next to the beach

Have had an absolutely stunning meal with one of my oldest friends to celebrate our birthdays. We shared 6 plates which was waaaay too much - every plate was so tasty and very authentic.

Probably the best food in Newquay, no rushing, nothing a problem, and the best thing is no kids. I have had my children, and always made sure they were well behaved.Some people let their children run riot and expect everyone to enjoy it. Well speak to me in 20 years and tell me you don't want time without tantrums and... More

We had a great meal,a great selection of Spanish tapas (all gluten free) and a few Greek dishes too. We are gluten intolerant,meant to bring our bread as a standby...we had forgotten but they would have been happy for us to bring it along. a fabulous wine list and polished off with a local hazelnut (Newquay) vodka!

Re-visited this great tapas restaurant - very good choice of Spanish cuisine and wine. It's not right that this restaurant has been slated for not allowing children in - it is clearly stated and has been designed to allow adults to enjoy some quality time together in a relaxed candlelit environment. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is superb.... More

We've been a few times over the last couple of years and have always enjoyed our meal. The food is freshly prepared and the dishes are well sized and tasty. We have been on busy and quiet nights and always found the service friendly. Not usually a dessert person but love them here, not too sweet and very moreish.

Food was awful, very stodgy. Ran out of white wine, even after we ordered three different types. A complete lack of atmosphere. Service was okay

Sorry you was not happy with your food, you do not say what you had. Our food is not stodgy & would depend on what you ordered. We have salads, new potatoes, fish veg, meat & cheese platters, chicken dishes. I admit if you ordered the chorizo & morcilla it is very rich but we don't tell people what to... More

We visit Estrella Morada Tapas Bar about 6 times a year. Phil, the owner, is very attentive, and once you get to know him, good fun too. I night out there is inexpensive and relaxed. We often have family meals there and even club outings. Its not a posh night out, it has a quite authentic Spanish style and if... More
