Located in the main square above another restaurant. Filled with Spanish locals. Staff have limited knowledge of English. Menu is in Spanish, I would recommend using an application on your phone to translate (Google). Food was great. Value was great. If I can, I will return to this place and eat again.

During our 10 days stay in Estella we went to this friendly staff restaurant 3 times. First it was a discovery, fresh, well prepared dishes and great price quality relation (menu for 15 EUR). We repeated yet 2x more. We went with small kids who are welcome and on each occasion tasted 3 different menu variants, each of them simply... More

I've eaten here twice in the last 6 months and have enjoyed it both times. I'm certain I will return again soon. The room is always packed, so if you're going on a busy day, call to make a reservation. The food changes by the season, is delicious and always very fresh. The menu choices are somewhat limited but always... More

A bit Tucked away off the main square and up the stairs. A bit intimidating for a foreigner......but am I glad my wife encouraged me to go in. Elegant table setting, excellent service, knowledgeable English and a delicious 3 course meal with wine for 15 euros. Can't get starter for that in most of France Look at the pictures ....... More

We stumbled in here on a Sunday lunchtime after arriving in Estella after a day's walking on the Camino. It's very traditional and a bit like stepping back in time. It's obviously well loved by local people and has a rather old fashioned, bourgeois style. The name La Cepa is translated into English on the menu as 'Restaurant Strain' which... More

La Cepa is a classic in Lizarra/Estella, but the offer is well balanced. You can enjoy a good Menu for a fair price. The choices are tasty and surprisingly variated. I like it.

Open for lunches from 1pm to 4pm and closed at night (except Sat/Sun I think). Owned by a lady who can cook we were ushered here by locals. Unpretentious local cuisine, served quickly, freshly made and using local products. I ate a bean soup, suckling pig then egg custard with half a bottle of wine for 15Euro. Best lunch I... More

It's an average restaurant - a bit too noisy and crowded (it's just a room with no windows) for my taste. The food is fine but it seems the cook tries too hard (very long names for boring food). The menu costs around 30€ per person which is not super expensive, but also not really worth it. We went on... More

La Sepa has very good reviews on this site and we were looking forward to going there recently. Having had some of our plans to eat disrupted by restaurants being closed, we were glad to see the doors open and all the lights on when we got close, so we went in and climbed the couple of flights of stairs...
