Description: Bar Estrella is located in the street that gives it its name. Wall to wall with the museum of flamenco, its enviable location makes the bar a landmark of the city of Seville. Among the Giralda and the Plaza del Salvador you'll find one of the best bars in Seville. Generous and originals tapas from our kitchen are mixed traditional Andalusian with the most innovative cuisine in a delicious and varied menu for all tastes. A great selection of wines are the ideal snack accompaniment and make the evening more enjoyable.

“Nothing spectacular”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

But nevertheless good food. Nothing fancy, just plain tapas, but good value for money, in a quiet street in Sevilla.

“A tiny jewel”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

The best Iberico ham I've tasted during my 2-week stay in Spain! Thanks to the hotel that I stayed for recommending this place. However, don't expect a good service here.

“Estrella is back ! A unique kind of place”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

This is a typical Sevillan Tapas place, not at all "made to be typical" for tourists, but truly genuine. Simple, a few tables, a bar, and some tables outside in a narrow pedestrian street. The walls, for their lower half, are covered with the typical Sevillan tiles, and for their upper half with hundreds of old black and white photographs of Sevilla, scenes of every day life but also special events like floods and so on.
The Estrella has been an insider tip for a long while, but in 2011 the quality of the tapas was quite often not up to reputation. So much so, that we went there less and less.
But early this year we had a try again and it was delicious ! So we went again regularly and we can say that the quality is at its top again! It's not gastro, or nouvelle cuisine or any thing, just down to earth classical tapas with good products and well-made. And of course, incredible value for money. Two tapas at 2.80 each will feed most people, three is the most.
A true pleasure, not to be missed. Starts serving early (19h).

“Authentic, without the modern twist”
Reviewed December 8, 2011

We stumbled upon La Estrella on a December night and headed inside to what looks like a quite authentic Sevillan bar and our second set of tapas for the evening. The service was friendly and swift (lots of smiles for our two year old in response to him waving at the waiters). We may have been unlucky in our choice of food or maybe it was more a matter of preference, but compared to the tapas at the Bar Europe from where we had just come the dishes were less refined (or maybe more authentic, who knows) and more basic. Both the fish in tomato sauce and the pork and ham on baguette were ok quality though.
