About Bar Esteban
Growing up under the shadow of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Pablo had a passion for cooking from a very young age. After attending the Joan Ramon Benapres culinary school in Sitges he moved to London to broaden his experience.
His first role in London was Chef de Partie at Barrafina, where he rotated quickly through all of the stations from pastry to plancha. After a year or so, it was time for a new challenge, which was found at Moro, in Clerkenwell.
When Moro opened Morito, Pablo was at the helm and focused his attention on tapas, mainly from the Andalucian region of Spain.
Pablo joined bar esteban in February 2013 as Head Chef and we are delighted to have him on board.
“I love fresh seafood especially if you have caught it yourself, my favorites are cuttlefish, clams and crab. We’ll have lots of great seafood on the menu as well as other daily specials, mainly from the regions of Catalunya, Pais Vasco and Andalucia. Cooking is my love, I don’t think I could ever be without it – the only other thing that comes close is FC Barcelona!”
So, whether you’re in the mood for razor clams, slow braised ox-tail, or simply a great tortilla bocadillo, we hope you stop by soon.
Always amazing food cocktails and wine. Service brilliant. It never disappoints Some of the best Tapas in London
Best tapas restaurant in London
Very friendly staff. Lovely food. Excellent mezcal cocktails.
guaranteed delicious food
I have been coming to Bar Esteban since it opened. The service and atmosphere are second to none. However I feel the menu has stayed the same for ages and some of the dishes - like the courgette flowers and the chocolate mousse dessert were tiny!! With a bill of £60 per head it’s not exactly cheap! I think the menu needs to be mixed up a bit and the portions should be bigger. I have left feeling that while I had a good time I didn’t really get value for money.
Great vibe and really delicious food. Service was a bit slow, but we were in no hurry. Perfect place to catch up with friends over wine and tapas.
As always, lovely people, fast service and delicious food!!
Not cheap and portion sizes are very much tapas sized (unsurprisingly) but was all delicious. Lovely atmosphere and very helpful staff.
Excellent food and atmosphere
Excelente, como siempre, tanto la comida como el trato recibido. Muy recomendable el tartar de atún y la tortilla de patatas.
Lovely ambience and delicious food. Will definitely be visiting again soon.
Consistently good food and service from this gem of a restaurant. Love it!
Always the best meal for a great price. They just get it right. Love it here!
I preface this review by saying the first time we went here months ago, the place was buzzing, & we sat at the bar & had an amazing evening. The staff on the bar were very attentive to us & made us feel at home, despite how packed with people it was. However they never went too far so that we didn't feel like we could talk privately as a two. They got the balance just right. In contrast with this, our recent visit on a Saturday evening, the place was mostly empty & the atmosphere was not great. It was not busy yet we were waiting for a good couple of minutes before even being acknowledged as having entered the restaurant, & when we were taken to a table, the waiter didn't really speak to us, & he stopped to talk about something with one of the other waiters, making us stand & wait for another couple of minutes. Then once we were seated no one offered to take our coats, & literally the first thing we were told by a different waiter was that they would need the table back by a certain time. Not enough a "good evening, or how are you tonight?". In no way did this make us feel welcome in the establishment. The food was very good although not as good as I remembered it from the previous visit. I will say though that the third waiter who we were then mostly served by for the rest of the evening (perhaps the owner?) was very good, friendly & attentive to us. We left a little disappointed & questioning if we will go back given the cost.
Everything was nice but the bill was a lot of money for the standard of food
A fantastic dining experience! Great food, wonderful atmosphere and fantastic service. A real experience.
Really lovely night out. Great food and a lovely atmosphere.
More items on the menu would be really good. The food is delicious but not enough choice.
We had a great time as always and the food was delicious!
Beautifully presented & tasty tapas with good vegetarian options especially love the crispy chickpeas and the stuffed courgette flower. Staff are friendly and attentive.
Works class tapas, fun venue
Food is even better than usual
Love Bar Esteban, never had a bad experience. Excellent service and it’s always busy. Menu changes regularly and food is excellent. Thank you
