Looking for a 'better than average-diner' we decided to make a reservation at L'estel. Read good reviews from satisfied customers. We don't know why: a bad day of the cook, fish maybe not that fresh, or...? Anyway, we choose the the tuna from tje plate and were disappointed. Overcooked, not a fine structure, and the accompanying dishes were too little... More

You're going to taste delicious dishes full of nuances. The best, just ask to the sommelier for the best wine for your choice and you're going to enjoy twice as much. A good option for eating with your couple.

Probably the best restaurant in LLeida. Excellent food and really helpful advice on the right choice of wine. The fish was fresh and beautifully cooked. The deserts delicious. Nothing but compliments. And extremely good value.

I was on a business trip in Lleida and someone recommended this restaurant for lunch. We had a hard time finding it because it does not have a typical restaurant look from the outside. It looks modern, unimpressive, and clean inside. Everything we ordered was beyond delicious and I am a very picky eater. Serving sizes were adequate to small.... More
