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.

Fantastic food, a bit pricey but still really good food. Brilliant service from a really nice Spanish woman who actually recommended us Escocesa, sister restaurant in Stoke Newington hoping to go there soon!

We visit fairly regularly. The tapas standards are very reliable and there is also always something new, seasonal and delicious on the list.

Really tasty and well cooked food. Crispy chickpeas were excellent as was the courgette flower stuffed with goat's cheese. Nice selection of wines too.

Great food, interesting tapas. Loved the courgette flower with goats cheese & candied golden beetroot. Rather dark & cramped in the middle of the restaurant. Better in window area or at rear.

I have been here on several occasions before but thought that on this visit the food was the best I’ve had. A little expensive for the amount we had but lovely.

Absolutely amazing food, the staff are second to none and the atmosphere is buzzing, this is our very favourite place to go. The tuna tartar was out of this world. Bar Esteban never fails.

I often come to Bar Esteban and really love it. Food and wine are always fantastic. Chairs a bit uncomfortable would be my only complaint, but other than that it’s one of my very favourite places

We came back after four years with great expectations, but this time it failed be impress us. Although the food is good, the price is way to high for the quantity. Wines were surprisingly served in degustation volumes of 125cc, at roughly £7 each. In summary: 80 pound for 5 small taps and the equivalent of half a bottle of average Spanish wine left us wondering if things have changed, and not for the better.

Great atmosphere, very tasty tapas, portion sizes vary considerably, as the gambas al ajillo were a very generous size, but the courgette not so. Fantastic choice of wine, much more than just Rioja and Ribera. Very friendly service.
