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.
Had a brilliant time at Bar Esteban. The service was excellent (friendly, engaging, knowledgeable, efficient), the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was great. Can't wait to go back, especially for the courgette flower stuffed with goat's cheese!
The 12.5 on meal is not fair and the selection was very average
Superb valentines day meal. The venison special was the cherry on a delicious cake. Thank you for a wonderful evening
We love going to Bar Esteban and decided to go for Valentine's Day. I was particularly appreciate of the fact that the restaurant did not impose a forced set menu, and that apart from a sprinkling of rose petals (which was a nice touch), they stuck to what they are good at, which is serving excellent tapas in a fantastic environment.
Fantastic food and great service
Wonderful as usual. Tuna to DIE for. Amazing service. We will continue to come back and enjoy
We love Bar Esteban - it is our favourite place in Crouch End!
All excellent. Great food and service. Love the atmosphere
Great sunday evening dinner at Bar Esteban. Excellent cocktails and tapas.
We've been here many times and it's never let us down. A thoroughly enjoyable evening with excellent food and service.
Lovely as always!
Absolutely delicious food!
Brilliant wine and sherry.
We had the most delicious evening at Bar Esteban - in every sense. The food was outstanding and we were treated to a mini wine tasting to choose the perfect bottle. Thank you!
Very nice and quick service, flexible - according to customer demands,
Lovely food as always and excellent service. Would be even better with a little more space and less noise, but that’s not really something the owners can do anything about easily!
We have been coming to Bar Esteban for many years now and it never dissapoints and always delivers on great food and a great and relaxed atmosphere.
Excellent food, nice atmosphere and overall good value make Bar Esteban lovely as always
We have been here several times and just felt a bit disapointed this time. Food and service was not as good as it has been in the past
A lovely evening at Esteban! Couldn’t fault the food and friendly staff! Will definitely be returning.
Such a fantastic restaurant to go with a group. Not phased by 22 of us. Food was delicious, great atmosphere and we had lots of fun.
I was shocked at the very expensive wines - with the recommendation on the table £60 per bottle. There was no wine available under £29. My friend and I paid nearly £90 for about 6 or 7 tapas, plus a bottle of wine. Although I appreciate Esteban tries to be authentically Spanish, and the food was good, I could not in all honesty recommend it, because of the prices.
The food and service were amazing- the best prawns ever! It was my birthday and we had a perfect meal - thank you
Excellent range of tapas, good selection of wines, attentive but discreet service. Our reservation was early (7pm) so not hugely atmospheric. In all, well worth visiting and thoroughly recommended.
