I went to dinner with a friend in Crouch End mid week at Bar Esteban and the place was buzzing with energy. We were immediately approached by Lisa one of the owners who informed us there was an hour wait. We put our name down and headed down the road. An hour later we came back and were greeted by a very friendly waiter that suggested a great beer from Barcelona. We ordered the morcilla with quail's eggs and it was delightful. It was topped up by an amazing rabo de toro (ox-tail) which literarily feel off the bone. All in a great dinning experience with amazing authentic service. Bar Esteban is a gem in Crouch End.

Really lovely food, service great - really friendly and attentive staff. All tapas dishes were great, especially the peppers and the squid. Definitely recommended and will be visiting regularly!

Popped in after a trip to one of our local pubs for 'a it of a change' and what a pleasant surprise. It was a Wednesday night and it was quite busy by 8pm. A good mix of people of all ages, with a very relaxed atmosphere. So, what about the food? We had mixed meat, some aubergine mixed dish (pisto), sardines, and pork belly (chicharrones). All nice and hot and all very tasty. Washed down with a nice bottle of red, what more could a couple want! With so many eateries in Crouch End it has stiff competition, BUT, I think it will do well and survive.

A very nice place with a really spanish tapas menu. We were a group of spanish people, so quite experience eating tapas, that we normally don't go to spanish restaurants. Great tapas and very reasonable prices. Definitively a place to go for having if you enjoy having really spanish style tapas. My favorites the octopus and the croquetas ham. Do not miss it if you are around the crouch end.
