Really bland food, seemed microwaved. Boring, with no effort. To bad this was the place we got recommended for our one night in Estella. One the plus side we got to see 6 80 year old Spanish women playing poker.

Florida Restaurante

Reviewed By worldin88days

Stopped here on the Plaza de Los Fueros because the band was setting up in the plaza and it was a good place to sit and listen. Took a while to be served and when I was the waiter did not seem to know the names of the beers that they sold. Asking for an Amstel Raddler! When it arrived the waiter presented the bill and demanded(!) payment at the same time - very disappointing attitude! Will not be back! Plenty of other bars around the plaza. Raddler and view was nice. Then to cap it all a local reveller was swaying around and 'singing' in the terrace area.

Casanova

Reviewed By HOWL_CAT

About a week into the Camino, it's in Estella some pilgrims begin to feel sore, sad, confused and homesick. There is a big bus station in Estella. In the morning you'll see lot's of pilgrims waiting to take them off the trail. I know how they feel. By the time I hit Estella I was ready to abandon the pilgrimage and bum around Europe instead. I might have even planned that in my mind while I was wandering around Estella looking for a place to eat after a long day's walk. I found Bar Casanova about 9PM. I peeked in and saw a pilgrim sitting with a glass of wine in hand. I sat down too. Minutes later I the pilgrim I'd seen paid and left the restaurant. I was alone with only locals for company. I ordered roast chicken and salad. Moments later my server sets a bottle of red wine and a salad down in front of me. Lettuce. Tomatoes. Chunks of dark meat chicken. I'm crushed. I thought I'd ordered a chicken, instead I'd ordered a chicken salad...and I don't like dark meat chicken. Not a fan of red wine either. Starved after a long day hiking the Camino I drizzle the salad with olive oil (which I noted was exceptional). Ate the lettuce and tomatoes (tomatoes amazing), finished a half glass of wine (also delicious), left payment on the table and head hanging and dejected I headed for the door. Half way there, behind me I hear, "Perrigrino, perrigrino!" It's my server (who it turns out is the owner). She asks me where I am going. Assuming she was surprised the cold chunks of dark chicken remain on my plate, I try in broken Spanish to explain everything is okay, " I just don't like cold dark chicken. I'd ordered wrong. I'd wanted roast chicken, but now it was late, I was tired and needed to get to my bed in the albergue." She laughs...loudly...she and patrons at the bar exchange words in Spanish and everyone starts laughing...everyone except me. What's so funny? Just then from behind her, a younger woman ascends a flight of steps from the kitchen into the bar holding a platter of aromatic french fries. The biggest pile of fries I'd ever seen. Atop the fries is half a roasted chicken. So fresh and hot the skin is crackling. The scent of the chicken fills the air. The owner speaks to the gal with the platter and she smiles and asks me to sit down explaining that the "chicken salad," was merely the first course. She sets the platter down in front of me, juices from the chicken dripping into the fries, pours me a huge glass of the red, and brings me crusty bread and a large glass of ice water. I'm ravenous. Elated. And I'm not lonely anymore. Now every person in the bar wants to hear my story. Why the Camino? What about my family? Religion. Politics. Wine advice. They even called my wife in California via Facebook face-time to assure her they were taking care of me. Hours later (after midnight), I can barely keep my eyes open and everyone is still chatting. I've got to go. Morning comes early on the Camino. They won't let me leave. I haven't had dessert yet. "please," I say, "just something small." A massive bowl of ice cream appears and my new trail-mom won't let me leave till it's finished. Barely able to move and a few pounds heavier than I was when I arrive, I again try to leave when they notice there is still wine in my bottle. Lickety split an empty liter bottle of Coke is produced and my wine is funneled into it for take away. Dinner is finished with a kiss on my cheek and hugs all around. It's the best meal of my life with the kindest restaurateurs I've ever met. Trail angels. Trail magic. A blessing on the Camino.

Reviewed By VeloandVine

A fantastic experience. Hugely varied and enjoyable menu, built around a series of set menu options, starting at €24 or €28. We chose the eight course €35 menu and couldn't have been happier. The opener of local tomatoes "many ways" was inspired, then the most delightful foie with truffle jelly and berry compote was brilliant. Cold cod with tomatoes was lovely, which led a phenomenal slow cooked egg with octopus and olive oil. Amasing! Next came warm cod "cannelloni" and then the local, succulent and gorgeous pork belly with yogurt. The desert of berries with sheep milk ice cream was a great finale. The wine list is really good and totally inexpensive and accessible. So, in conclusion; brilliant, unexpected and a total indulgence, but after 5 days on the Camino a luxury....... Muchas gracias por su opinión. Para todo el equipo de trabajo de tximista gastronomía nos reconforta enormemente, opiniones sobre todo describen la esencia de nuestra cocina y al mismo tiempo vemos que esta llega al comensal y la entiende. Una opinión la suya muy valiosa. Todos la guardamos en una cazuela que tenemos en la cocina. La llamamos corazón!

Asador Astarriaga

Reviewed By ExphilipX

Careful attention to sourcing of cows for the chuleta / chuleta. This is the particular spanish way of serving older cows than the rest of the world - full of taste. Initial attitude thankfully disappeared during the meal and ended with friendly complimentary digestives. Good local wine list - try the Navarra selection - very close to Rioja at a fraction of the price. The restaurant is in the back (bar & simple food at the front). They have a pilgrims menu but if you want to try the real meat you have to pay up. Nothing serious compared to steak restaurants around the world though - certainly good value

Huge saloon with medieval style chairs and tables with ceramic tiles. Ample garden for entrees or after lunch coffee, or full lunch / dinner when wheater acompanies. Good kitchen with quality products. Generous dishes served. Cabracho cake and spargus filled with sea food cannot be missed. I liked bacalao ajoarriero too. Chocolate dessert. House wine is good, no need to go deep into the wine list which is not too extense or appealling anyway.

La Cepa

Reviewed By Carol16

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 intrigued us. I think actually it means a strain of good breeding as in 'coming from good stock'. That made sense given the customer base. Most customers seemed to be well heeled regulars and were welcomed warmly. They were very tolerant of us pitching up in our walking clothes but we felt a bit out of place. The service is friendly but rather fast. The menu is traditional and reminded me of something out of the 1970s. Big portions of classics including a local dish of roast pig's trotter with lettuce which we didn't sample but was very popular and was enormous. Not the most relaxed dining experience but we didn't know this until we'd gone up the stairs into the dining room by which point it was too late to leave!

Casanellas Taller Gastronomico

Reviewed By lanitrek

We loved the cuisine, the friendly chefs, and overall vibe of the restaurant...endearing us even more to the city. Everything carefully prepared and most ingredients, if not all, were home made, grown or purchased locally. We wanted to visit the best restaurant in town so looked here and saw all the great reviews. I agree with every single superb review. The Chefs are local artisans and clearly are passionate about their craft. If in Estella, especially if you're a Camino peregrino....stop by here and take a break from the Pilgrim's menu. Their local but global approach to ingredient selection is evident in all the dishes. A rustic but modern Spanish cuisine that is more than a meal ...but also creates a lasting memory.We had the home made bread and butter, bacalao (w/Apple honey, tomatoes), duck (magret con arroz piña red curry), amazing lentil soup and mouth-watering salad. For dessert ordered the pecan pie and chocolate cake.We made reservations before arrival. Definitely will be back again!!!Suggestions: email in advance for reservations between the hours posted here on tripadvisor. They are responsive and will email you back. As other guests noted, there are only about 5 tables with a maximum capacity of about 16 seats. It's spacious though and the decor is modern and nicely decorated.
