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.
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.
I've been many times to Bar Esteban - the standard is always excellent. Had a particularly fine meal with friends on Monday eve. The ox cheeks were to die for! Nice mix of Spanish standards and more novel dishes.
One of our favourites, it is always of a very high standard.
Amazing evening, great service, thanks
Really loved the decor and atmosphere and we were well looked after by the staff who gave good recommendations (we were very indecisive). Winning dishes included the deep fried squid and the oxtail. We also adored the wine and the sherry we had with dessert (another great recommendation). The pork was disappointing and lacking in flavour and we wouldn’t have said it was worth the money. The same goes for the orange and chocolate parfait dessert. But would definitely visit again to try everything we couldn’t fit in this time!
I always have excellent meals at Bar Esteban - food is so delicious and creative with such a great vibe. We're very lucky to have such a fantastic place in Crouch End
Loavely service and delicious food and drinks. THe seating is a little tight at the back where we were, especially near the kitchen door, which impacted the atmosphere a little. I might try to creat a little more space.
Our favourite place in crouch end!! Love it here!
Revisited on the anniversary of my girlfriend and my anniversary. Service and food were as.good as we remembered. We'll recommended
It will only allow me to give you 4 stars for atmosphere, but I would like to give you five. I love your restaurant, amazing food, great choice of wine and really lovely service. I live locally and it’s my favourite restaurant in the area.
The food and service is always excellent. The environment isn’t cramped and the prices are good.
I booked the table for my son's 25th birthday, and sadly was unable to come myself due to ill health. But the unanimous verdict from my 3 kids, who are notoriously hard to to please was fantastic food, great atmosphere, great service ( they changed the booking last minute with no hassle) . As they were brought up 20 minutes from San Sebastian and practically weaned on tapas that's impressive. My sons exact words were " the dogs bollocks' but you might not want to print that.... Can't wait to join them next time!
