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.
The food was pretty good. The only downside being the figs and blue cheese which wasn't cheesy enough. That and the being charged for a dish we didn't actually receive (and this is not for the first time).
The food is delicious. Staff are lovely and friendly providing good service. I found it a bit difficult to have a conversation with the other diner mainly due to the layout of the restaurant and the acoustics of the flooring. That’s not to say that I wouldn’t go back. It’s something to bear in mind when booking if you are looking for a quiet intimate evening at a restaurant. It’s one of my favourite local restaurants.
Great food, great atmosphere.
Always wonderful food. A great vibe too!
Terrific food, great atmosphere.
Food and service are always excellent.
It was ok but just a little underwhelming. Slow service, and some incorrect orders. Waiters didn’t seem to care too much really. Shame because i was really hoping for something special having read the website.
Beautifully prepared food. Feels like an authentic atmosphere. Even my 8 year old daughter had a special time. Thank you
Staff are too keen to clear plates away from the table. I suspect this is they are trying to be busy. There is a fine line between being attentive and fussing around the table. It felt a bit rushed at times by the staff but then was sometimes difficult to attract their attention for another drink. This is a staff training issue. Some restaurants get this right, some don't.
Came here in the back of a weeks break in Barcelona and I can vouch for the authenticity of the food. Great traditional tapas as well as more contemporary dishes. Great atmosphere and service. Portion sizes were also good as was the wine list. Will come again for sure.
My favourite restaurant in Crouch End.
Excellent meal. Thank you.
Amazing food and service. Highly recommend
Great little spot with a buzzing atmosphere, good service, delicious tapas and a fabulous bartender!
Vibey atmosphere with delicious selection of tapas and wine and excellent friendly service.
Lovely evening with great service and food as usual!
Lovely evening, delicious food and very good service
Excellent meal and good service. It was a good night with friends. I will definitely be back.
Love it here, great food and service.
Get some new chairs with lumbar support please!! Otherwise everything is great!
A lovely evening. Fine wine and delightful tapas with excellent, attentive service. We’ll be back!
Great time there but service was impressively bad, was brought 4 separate dishes that we didn't ask for and they forgot about two that we ordered. Actually loved the night there though, great atmosphere, food and not too pricey. Would definitely come back if I had no time constraints!
Great service, authentic atmosphere and fabulous food. One of our favourites
As always, a great night out with delicious food at Bar Esteban.
I understand we are in Crouch End but as a Spaniard I know how expensive Spanish food is back there and for us Bar Esteban was a little bit pricy. Even though quality was excellent and service amazing too.
