What a great find. Stopped at Estrellita Restaurant while visiting Los Altos. We wanted a good quick lunch and found both here! The chips and two salsas were amazing. My shrimp Veracruz were excellent and the accompanying rice and salad well prepared. With a full bar this place is great!

If you want a change from the average Mexican food restaurant, try out Estrellita's. The preparations are unique, super tasty and very fresh. They also make the best margueritas in the area. This is a local, neighborhood kind of place, with a wonderful staff and a talented kitchen. We find ourselves there every couple of weeks.

Has a bit of a new name, but been around forever. Estrellita Mexican Bistro and Cantina. We ate here last night for my son's birthday (at his request). We love Mexican food - travel to Mexico - get takeout on lazy nights .... our dinner last night was really fabulous. The Owne, who also waited on us, is a very... More

I've lived around the corner from this restaurant for several years but just never got around to trying it. I'm so glad I finally did! I was on my own for dinner last Sunday and I had worked all day so I decided to treat myself to dinner out. Seemed like the perfect time to check out this place that... More

I've been eating here for 15 years, and I still go every time I'm in town. The mole poblano is delicious, as is everything else I have tried here. Friendly, usually not too crowded, and very reasonable prices.

The waiter offered two of the guests in my party to do order an on-the-fly combination of two of the pork dishes. I tried the pork and it was delicious. I had the Oaxaca Chicken and was impressed by how tender the chicken was and by its flavors. Parking is very hard ... recommend car pooling or arriving early and... More

The best poblano mole chicken in the west, and you can choose black beans. The rice even has a few vegetables in it. One of my favorites for "date night"- dinner and a flick. Parking is always a problem so maybe next time I'll park somewhere else and walk a few hundred yards.

The food quality was great, service very responsive and attentive. Had a hard time parking, place turns into a zoo during lunch hour with a traffic jam in front of it. Strange smell inside, maybe not too well ventillated? Would come back in off hours, as food was truly good.

Friendly service, good food, nice atmosphere. I really like their chairs--very colorful! We've never had to wait for a table, but sometimes the service is slow. Good selection on the menu and tasty entrees. Great margaritas!

We visit Estrellita from time to time. It tends to specialize in Oaxacan and Sonoran style Mexican food. Beware that parking is very tricky here, both as there are few spots, as well as the lot is shallow.
