This was just down the road from our hotel. The decor is pleasant and the setting fairly intimate.The portions were generous so we would recommend going with the restaurant's suggestion of 5 items per couple. We ordered a basket of bread, not realising that two of the dishes we had ordered came with bread already- it would have been helpful... More

Well when you walk in the purple décor and the barman is not the warmest of characters but don't worry the food is excellent and looks freshly made. We ordered a selection from the Tapas menu and it was tasty hot and excellent food. After an unfortunate visit to the pub across the road this was a real gem of... More

A small, charming tapas bar/restaurant just off the beach. Fantastic selection with no deep fat fryer in sight and a good range of drinks/wines. Well cooked food with good quality ingredients. Large portions for tapas. Recommended.

We visited Estrella Morada this evening, it was very quiet but granted we got there as it opened at 6.30 (we have a young baby, we knew we wouldn't have a lie in, in the morning!) And it was end of the season and a gloomy day weather wise! However, we got a lovely warm welcome and the food was... More

Spanish style tapas, nice enough, some lacking a little in flavour. Great views of the sunset over the beach.

Nice little place opposite porth beach. Really good views of the sunset. Wine was excellent as was the draft estrella. Prompt and efficient service. Food included some original tapas dishes that I hadn't seen before. No deep fried stuff either. I guess if there was a slight criticism it would be the lack of a Spanish atmosphere. Maybe less rolling... More

Food is very nice and cooked to perfection. Proprietor is very friendly and polite. Only thing that stopped me giving five stars was the very long time we had to wait for our food. The place was busy but not full, and yet we had to wait 45 minutes to get what we ordered. When it came, the food was... More

We are a small family run Tapas Bar facing the beach in Porth Nr Newquay. Sorry we do not allow children under 14 as we are a fully licensed public bar, adults haven, adults have to have somewhere to go without children. You can sit & enjoy a glass or bottle (from £14 per bottle) of Spanish wine/ sangria (£8 per half litre or £15 per litre)or beer in our relaxing bar or out looking over the beach or if you feel a bit hungry why not try some our our tapas. All our tapas dishes are cooked fresh to order (if hot) & are from authentic Spanish recipes. Dishes cost from £3 (olives) to £6.75 (scallops & morcia) We say for a snack 1-2 dishes or substanial meal average of 5 dishes per couple if you want a full meal
