This place is always busy but our hotel host said it was not to be missed. So we braved the crowd and were lucky enough to find space at the take-away window. We ordered up the house specialty of tomato salad and two glasses of house wine. The tomatoes were lovely. So flavorful with rich olive oil poured on generously.... More

Crowded and bustling, and you quite possibly will stand up during your entire dinner but that's what half the clientele are doing so join in! Eat what they give you and enjoy it. It's easy AND delicious! It really is an experience and will leave you smiling.

Amazing steak! This rustic little bar only has steak, peppers, salami, tomatoes, cheese and tortilla which needs to be ordered in advance.

The experience of... More

What an experience. Nestor allowed me to go in the kitchen as he was preparing his egg dish. So much fun. You need to order this at 7 pm as he only makes one a night. The steak at one of the few tables looked delicious. Tried to make a reservation but he was sold out until June.

Went to Bar Nestor on a whim and the food was delicious! Staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was amazing, including steak, tomatoes and pimentos - all of which are a must have. I would highly recommend Bar Nestor and would go back in a heartbeat.

Great service, but a limited menu- get there promptly for 1pm if you fancy a slice or two of popular tortilla. They also do a tasty and fresh tomato salad.
