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

I went here with my wife whilst on holiday.. we have gone to porth for many years and kept saying we will have to try this restaurant and never have until now... I feel the ambience was really nice.. I like the fact the place only seats around 40 people (at a guess) it was nice to enjoy a nice... read more

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

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

Visited late September, so hardly the height of the season, but very quiet all the same. Food and service were both good without being exceptional. Wouldn't rule out going back, but would try to catch it at a slightly busier time to get a bit more atmosphere

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
