Bar Esteban in London is a soulful tapas bar that brings together eclectic influences from Barcelona and Brooklyn. The bar has been described by Time Out magazine as a “great asset to Crouch End.”

The Bar Esteban menu was created by head chef Pablo Rodriguez-Lopez, previously of popular Spanish restaurants Barrafina, Moro and Morito. It includes mouth-watering plates such as salt cod croquetas, baked eggs over chorizo and octopus with potato & paprika. Spanish and British cheeses from the cheese plate can be matched with sumptuously sweet sherries and Spanish wines.

Influenced by founding partner Lisa Woolley’s years in Brooklyn, the Bar Esteban interior features a long metallic bar and wooden flooring for laidback, minimalist dining. American- style diner chairs and tables hold company with colourful Spanish art for an entirely unique restaurant space.

Bar Esteban in Crouch End is an intriguing blend of differing cultures, and is a short drive from Alexandra Park.

    Nice little restaurant but extremely noisy if you want to have a conversation . Service can be really slow and you need to grab the staff for attention

    We dined with our grown up son and very much enjoyed the experience. we had octopus, squid, pork, the chorizo thing with the funny name was our favourite dish, I could have eaten it all myself. The bread was lovely. The patatas bravas were a bit bland and i wished the olive had included wrinkly black ones. lovely red wine. I would recommend the bar to enemies in the hope it would turn them into friends. service was good.

    The second time I have been here this time for lunch instead of dinner. As before, every morsel of food was taste sensation
    The garlic prawns are particlaurly amazing and the courgette flower with cheese stuffing delicate and delicious. Aubergine with walnuts delicious. The tortilla was good but not outstanding like the other choices we made.

    The service was far too quick and it was over expensive for a few quite average tapas

    This is our absolutely favourite restaurant for eating out in N.London. Food is always fantastic, staff are charming, it's cosy & intimate and full of character and there's thankfully no loud music to talk over! Can't fault it....

    Bar Esteban is one of the best restaurants I've ever been to and it's even better that it's local. Great vibe, fabulous food and lovely staff.
