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.
So great to come back - wonderful food and we felt so well looked after by the team.
Great as always
Absolutely delicious all round -seafood dishes cooked to perfection & great service..can’t wait to come again and try more lovely dishes
Really good COVID safe measures - felt reassured
Delicious selection of tapas, great gin cocktails and cava combined with friendly service and buzzy Barcelona meets Crouch End atmosphere. Perfect night out.
Thank you everyone for making us feel so welcome and most importantly safe on our first meal out since the start of lockdown, food was delicious as ever and staff friendly.
Highly recommend Esteban. Fantastic quality of food and great wine list. Having been a regular customer for years I’ve never had a less than brilliant meal. Lovely staff and service
We so much enjoyed our first post-lockdown visit to Bar Esteban. The atmosphere was obviously a bit different from usual, but the service and the food were as good as ever - the latter, perhaps, even better!
The food is very nice and the wine selection great. However the food prices are quite expensive and the beer price extortionate. We effectivelt paid £35 for the equivalent of 3 pints . Also, although the service was very good, a few more smiles from the waitress would be nicer.
One of my favourite restaurants on the planet! Was beyond excited to see it reopen again this week! Welcome back guys, we’ve missed you enormously
Wonderful food and fantastic service. The team have worked very hard to ensure both their customers and their staff are safe. Temperature checks on entry and hand sanitiser on arrival, separately wrapped cutlery and unobtrusive screens between tables made us feel very comfortable. To avoid touching menus we also used a QR code to view menus on our phones. Very clever indeed! We had a wonderful meal, it was a real treat after such a long time in lockdown. We will be back very soon!
It’s always nice to find an authentic restaurant with amazing staff and great service in London... a rare combination most of the time!
The food was 1st class -thank you, can’t be faulted.
Social distancing impossible. The screens between some tables great, but not in evidence between all. I felt very exposed. I love this place but won’t be back until I feel a bit more comfortable about space between tables.
Fantastic night out.
One of our favourite restaurants and so happy it is reopen after the lockdown.
Great food - social distancing measures put in place well.
Food excellent as always but sadly just 3 occupied tables as government advice to avoid unnecessary social contact was taking effect. However it was a wedding anniversary meal and with the prospect of being cooped up for weeks or months during the Covid-19 pandemic we opted to attend.
Fantastic atmosphere, exquisite dishes, super service ... what a night! Soho has come to Crouchend! I’m a real aficionada, Olé to Estaban!
Good local tapas
Nice food and friendly staff
Top quality tasty food, lovely cosy atmosphere, excellent wine & drinks. Lovely staff
Much enjoyed the evening. My friend felt the (decaf) coffee could have been better. Food, as always, good. Very comfortable and nice atmosphere.
Great food, fantastic quality. A great addition would be some more affordable wine options by the glass.
Great food quality, we had a few different tapas but we will definitely come back to try the paella next time :)
