Really good tapas!

We went for an early evening light meal and were very pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. Great choice of tapas and other 'little' dishes, service was great and a good choice of wines beer etc. I am sure this will get a repeat visit soon.

I have been to this restaurant many times but noticed a deterioration in service and hygiene, I.e. Food on floor, sticky tables etc hence I haven't visited for a good 12 months. However, it always seems very busy when passing, so assume they must be doing, so imagine my shock when reading the Birmingham Mail today 28th Feb 2015 to... More

James K, Operations Manager at Bar Estilo, responded to this review

Dear LoobyWestMidlands, Although the Birmingham Mail only posted this article in February, the rating relates to an issue dating back to last October. The problems highlighted were immediately rectified and both the general manager and head chef responsible for the restaurant at that time no longer work for us. I can assure you that we take our hygiene responsibilities very... More

I absolutely love tapas, you can always tell a good tapas place by their calamari- bar estilo does it beautifully. I came here for my partners 40th, had never been before and had not read any reviews, we found the place on accident and was very pleasantly surprised. The food is delicious and the service is lovely. I would highly... More

We visited on Valentine's Day - calling in to try our luck as we hadn't booked (we don't live in Birmingham). We were told at first there wouldn't be any availability for an hour, but then a two person slot opened up at the bench by the bar. This turned out to be a great spot - we could see... More

Visited here on a very cold Saturday afternoon for pre theatre drinks and dinner. Thoroughly enjoyed it, the tapas was superb. estrella on draught. Nice choice of food, with great vegetarian options. We selected 6 items from the tapas menu which was ample for the two of us. The service was excellent and the quality of the food was lovely,... More

Great service, nice atmosphere, feels very busy and loud without feeling dominating. Decor is vibrant and service is excellent. Menu is very authentic, plenty of choice although would prefer to see more authentic options on the menu, e.g Salad with Pine Nuts and Oranges, Chicken Livers, Anchovy dishes and more fresh Shell Fish but really, I'm just being picky. Plenty... More

Had some lovely tapas at the Bar Estilo, fresh, hot and tasty. The staff were friendly and courteous and couldn't do enough for you. Bar area was over crowded and customers were trying to eat there food there which wasn't ideal! Table was booked for 8pm and wasn't seated until 8.40 however apart from that a great experience.
