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.

    What an absolute gem! Estragon is the place to go if you want incredible service and food in a relaxed, tranquille environment. My friend, who’s from Europe, said it felt like she was at a European restaurant. We went before a show at Speakeasy, very pleasant walk to theatre. Would highly recommend!

    Pleasant group dinner with excellent food. Interesting specials and more eclectic offerings for those that like to explore (grilled sardines, blood sausage (morcilla) A little noisy but didn’t interfere with enjoyment. Would definitely go back.

    We absolutely love Estragon. Everyone who works there from the owners, host, waitstaff and more are friendly, accommodating and ensure that you have a great experience. They were very responsive to a couple of special requests, and also very sensitive to wheelchair accessibility. The food is very good, we always get the pulpo and although it was good last night, it was slightly over cooked and chewy which is unusual, but they were also very very busy and pulpo is very difficult to cook! So this is just a small thing, but everything else is just delicious, you never feel rushed and I was particularly appreciative that they let us take our time, enjoy our conversation, that so many of the staff speak Spanish Comfortable, festive, yes it gets loud, but that’s the benchmark of people having a great time. We will be back and recommend many times.

    Definitely jockeying for too Tapas in Boston alongside Toro and Barcelona. Much more inventive than Barcelona, especially the meat dishes. The braised pork was the best thing there, but a close second was the black sausage toast. Fried artichoke hearts and asparagus both excellent. Great cocktails and a good wine selection too.

    Estragon is a delightful city neighborhood restaurant that provides consistently fine ambiance, delicious meals, and attentive service. My wife and I were very pleased to return after a long pandemic absence. Prices had risen a bit but such is the case everywhere. Our overall experience was excellent once again and we can highly recommend.

    Restaurant week inspired us to get out and check out Estragón. The service was okay, friendly but not attentive. Perhaps short staffed, like every one else. The value of the meals didn’t quite meet the expectations. Some food came out cool, but overall okay. The bread pudding was excellent. The facility it self was clean and done up nicely. Would check it out again sometime in the future.

    We decided to try out Estragon during Restaurant Week and we were so impressed by the food and service. The shrimp (gambas al ajillo) were cooked perfectly and the piquillos rellenos and chocolate mousse were highlights as well. Our server (we didn’t catch his name) was very personable and attentive. We will definitely be returning to Estragon in the near future!
