“Excellent Lunch”
Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

We stopped by for lunch while traveling through to SLO. We were very pleasantly surprised by the vibrant and charming downtown. Estrella's has excellent food reminiscent of the food down in central Mexico. Layers of flavor. We shared shrimp tacos, chile relleno and the trio of guacamoles (traditional, chipotle, and habanero). All was delicious and the service very nice and attentive. Highly recommend.

“Delicious tapas”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

The yucca fries were an unexpected favorite. And the pork empanadas were little bites of perfection! Don't forget to order their sangria ;-)

“Our favorite restaurant!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Food and staff are both wonderful! The wine list is interesting too, and not overly pricey!
Before decor also:-) The food though is the star!

“One of Paso Robles' Best”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is our favorite restaurant in town. We've never been disappointed with anything we've ordered - the menu is varied and delicious. Their take on chili relleno is superb! The service is excellent and the atmosphere delightful. It's a great place to bring friends, have special gatherings, or just enjoy a meal out.

“Unique food and wonderful atmosphere”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I was with two friends when we dined on Saturday. We stuck to the tapas and salad section of the menu. Fair portions, unique flavors and fantastic wait staff. Be sure to get the Yucca Fries and their chips and bean salad (brought to table like bread would be in many restaurants. I enjoyed the scallop ciopino and my friends loved the mussels. Good wine selection, too.
