I love tapas and have been to some lovely tapas restaurants in the past. Estrella Morada certainly wasn't a disappointment. We had 5 dishes between the 2 of us and there wasn't a morsel left! The chorizo was especially good.

Anybody that has ever been to or lived in Spain understands how important family is over there. How they can prejudice every single child under 14 years old shows that the management clearly does not understand the Spanish way of life. You can therefore assume that the Tapas itself is going to also be as unauthentic; case in point the... More

My partner and I always visit Estrella Morada when in Newquay but this time we brought her sister and husband with us on 2 of our 3 visits. We enjoyed everything we had as usual and even the friendly chat wit other diners. We are very much looing forward to returning again next year.

Another visit to Estrella to visit Phil & Debbie (but mostly for the food, sorry Phil!). Great as usual with loads of choice and great chat with Phil. Only disappointment while in Newquay for a whole week was that we could not manage to squeeze in a second visit. See you next time.

My fiancée and I visited whilst we were camping at Porth Beach and found the food and service here to be great! A real treat next to the beautiful PorthBeach and cliffs. Really impressed by the food especially as the restaurant isn't situated in a main town. If you're around that way you should give them a try!

We were suggested to go here for good tapas and we weren't disappointed. Great menu, really good prices, decent portions and really flavoursome dishes. As its in Porth you escape the main bulk of Newquay tourists which is quite nice and the views over the cove are really lovely, especially st sunset! The restaurant is simple in style, the staff...

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
