Spanish
Estragon Tapas Bar: your slice of Spain in the South End. Estragon is owned and operated by Julio de Haro and Lara Egger. Chef Julio was born and raised in Madrid and his cuisine reflects the fresh simplicity of traditional Spanish fare. Many of the dishes are family recipes, served straight from Abu Luisa's kitchen to your table. To complement Estragon's extensive tapas menu, you'll find a unique cocktail list featuring oft' forgotten classic cocktails, a selection of over twenty local and craft beers, and an all-Spanish wine list with more than 100 references spanning both the country's established and emerging wine regions. An evening at Estragon is unlike any other dining experience. The decor-- art deco meets vintage chic-- provides an inviting, sophisticated setting perfect for any occasion.

The BEST tapas restaurant in the South End! Amazing food, cocktails, service, and ambience. They’ve also done a great job setting up safe, comfortable outdoor seating. You can’t go wrong!

They were extremely accommodating to our party in terms of table choice and proximity and of tables to each other for our large group. Service was outstanding! This is our “go-to” restaurant for get-togethers and special occasions!

An amazing menu and an adorable tucked away neighborhood gem.
As a dairy allergy diner I was thrilled that I could have almost every item on the vast menu without alterations, which is almost unheard of.
A new favorite spot!

We sat outside, just off the sidewalk. Mehta was our server - he is amazing. Probably hasn't seen me since last fall and he remembered both of our drinks, as well as most of our usual bites, asked about the kids... really that added experience that only comes from people who genuinely care.
The food was great - always is - and we had a lovely evening. Since our usual anniversary place is closed due to the pandemic, we will probably come back here for that celebration.

We have eaten at Estragon many times pre-Covid 19 and found the tapas selection interesting, showing gourmet level of cuisine. On this occasion the food was uninteresting/ blah, we had outdoor seating in the rear of the restaurant that had nothing appealing about the space, poor lighting when dusk arrived, uneven service of the tapas, etc. We will not go back.

Estragon has some of the best Spanish food in Boston, we went during the Dine Out Boston and the menu was limited but overall the quality and service were fantastic!

I know it is a function of the type of restaurant it is, namely a Tapas Place, but the individual courses came out so close together, that one was not done with a Tapas when another arrived. My wife and I do not eat so fast.

Unbelievably amazing service! Unfortunately didn't catch his name, but he said he'd worked there 11 years. One of our friends was vegan and there weren't any vegan dessert options, so he INSISTED on getting her something vegan -- she ended up getting a vegan virgin cocktail for free. :) So kind!

Excellent food! Every item was one of the best tasting versions I've ever had, from blue cheese stuffed dates, to salmon belly empanadas, to crab stuffed peppers. Incredible meal, great service, first time there and had the Dining Out Prix Fix so super value for the price. Will definitely go again!

Outstanding food and service. Outdoor seating was spaced out for safety and very clean with tall plants around edge so we felt a nice separation from the street. Menu was still full of our favorite dishes and quality was great as always. Superb wine selection.

My friend and I dined outdoors to celebrate my birthday. Estragon has a lovely social-distance setup with their planter boxes and the staff were all very meticulous about masks etc. The food was great. I'm a regular to Estragon and the quality of the food has been maintained or is even better than ever.
