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 have just returned from a night in Newquay, where we returned to Estrella to dine. This is our third visit and the food remains very tasty indeed. We had the recommended 5 dishes and the sangria. The portion sizes are very generous and we struggled to finish it all. The meat dishes are rich and lovely flavours, especially the... More

This was the second visit for my wife and I. Last year the owner corrected me on Pink Floyd gig at Earls Court way back when so, he's an ok kinda guy in my book! (I still have the t shirts if not the waist line!). To the food, as previous, we stuck to the 5 dish per couple guide... More

Enjoyed a meal here, decent choice of food and larger portions than most tapas restaurants, though the restaurant is fairly small you don,t feel crammed in, will go again

Popped in here for a quick meal before a gig at Lusty Glaze beach. The food was good, although underseasoned (with no salt and pepper on the table this was not rectifiable either!) Good Spanish wines at very reasonable prices were an added attraction.

Ate evening meal here. It's a dedicated Tapas restaurant and had a great choice of dishes. It was very warm inside and my clothes smelled of kitchen odours when I left.. The gentleman serving seemed pretty uninterested in us , never mentioned the specials ( we heard him do so to others but a while after we'd ordered ). Food... More

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
