We walked by the place on 8/21/16 and the space is being turned into a retail store. It's too bad because we always thought the food at Estrella was excellent.

We had reservations for dinner and when we arrived on August 1 we were met at the door and advised that the owner and the chef had fallen out and the restaurant had just closed permanently. We happened to drive by the next day and they had taken the awnings down and had scraped the name from the window.

Slightly spicy dishes but not too much for a non-spicy eating person. Very nicely flavored fish and ribs in large portions. Had a hard time finishing all the food. One of many restaurants in the area worth trying.

The atmosphere was great. The servers and host were very kind and attentive. That was the best! Great menu, queso was very good. The main course was terribly salty. Excellent beer selection. We wish it was better!

Relaxed atmosphere with Spanish influenced décor. Unique dinner options. Excellent empanadas and chili rellenos (crab and corn as well as the queso fresco)!

I would not say this is my favorite restaurant in Paso Robles but I would definitely eat there again. Service was good, food was alright, the ribs were a bit dry, the sparkling water was flat but they exchanged that out when we told them. The burrito was good and spicy and a nice atmosphere.

We had a lovely dinner at Estella's which specializes in Argentinian and Spanish dishes. The steak was grilled to perfection. The service was excellent and we were able to walk in without a reservation on a Monday evening. Local and other fine wines are offered to complement the meals. The decor has paintings of toreadors and other images that evoke... More

We had the dinner tapas and the food was very good and reasonably priced. We sat outside and it was good atmosphere with the view of the square. Inside seemed very dark and gloomy. The service was excellent and would definitely recommend.
