Whether or not you’ve hopped aboard the tapas train, Bar Estrella is certain to impress. Found down Sydney Road in Brunswick, this classy Spanish bar and restaurant offers a warm, inviting setting for meeting with friends or colleagues over fine wine and delicious tapas. With a cosy dining space that’s inspired by the many lively bars and hangout spots in Spain, the folks behind Bar Estrella aim to recreate the same feeling at their Melbourne passion project. Serving up both traditional and contemporary dishes, the restaurant has something for everyone – try the chorizo a la plancha (chorizo with chutney) and patatas bravas for a classic experience. No matter when you plan to dine, make sure to book ahead of time at Bar Estrella, as they’re known to stay busy.
We had a family, birthday and Christmas catch up. Bar Estrella is a favourite place. We sat outside and enjoyed the sangias and tapas. My cousin was happily getting into the Spanish beer. We ordered extra food; the smoked eggplant, chorizo and the meat platters are very good. The staff are very wonderful. It was a great family day made special by the food, wine and service
