Lived in Newquay for over thirteen years and had never visited this restaurant previously. Recommended by my in-laws so my wife and I (together with my in-laws) visited here recently. We were not disappointed! We selected a varied selection of ten dishes which was plenty...More

We had dinner at Estrella Morada one lovely evening. The atmosphere was casual, given the beachside location. The menu was varied, offering something for everyone, and the service was efficient. I wouldn't say the service was warm and friendly - just matter-of-fact, impersonal, but efficient....More

4 of us went here for dinner the other week and were very impressed! Although from the outside the tapas bar doesn't look anything particularly special, the food makes up for that and more! There is a wide range of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes,...More

We are a small family run Bar serving Spanish Tapas, facing the beach in Porth Nr Newquay. Sorry we do not allow children under 16 as we are a fully licensed bar, adults have to have somewhere to go without children. You can sit & enjoy a glass or bottle of Spanish wine/ sangria 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. 99% of our dishes are gluten free. We have meat, fish, vegetable dishes, dips, Spanish cheeses & meats. We say for a snack 1-2 dishes or substantial meal average of 5 dishes per couple if you want a full meal
