Authentic Spanish Tapas bar in Gwithian, Cornwall

Open daily 2-10pm

About Us

Located just a short stroll from the beach at Gwithian, Los Establos is a classic Spanish tapas bar with a Cornish twist, infusing locally sourced ingredients with authentic Spanish cuisine to create a unique culinary experience – all washed down with fresh and vibrant cocktails and carefully selected wine.

What is tapas? tapas is designed to be a fun and informal dining experience. Originating in Spain, tapas is a selection of small plates which are shared amongst friends and family at the table or bar. We recommend that guests select 2-3 tapas each and share them around the table, placing a bit of each onto their plates to enjoy. We serve our tapas in the traditional method; when its cooked, it’s served.

The great thing with tapas being small plates is that it allows diners to be adventurous whilst also enjoying their favourites. And if appetites aren’t fully satisfied, our friendly staff are always on hand to provide more!

We recommend booking in advance as we can get very busy! It is all table service here to ensure our guests receive the full experience, with the option to dine in or go al fresco.
