    Brussel sprouts were amazing, tuna special was excellent, but the ribeye special wasn't the best, and definitely not worth $45! I think the server should tell you the price at the same time as telling you the specials, especially when they are so expensive!

    Very underwhelmed. I’ve wanted to go for years and it didn’t meet expectations. Food wasn’t anything special and they were very snobby. Not worth the money. There are other really good restaurants in Rincon.

    Fantastic food and service. We had a kind of croquette with filet mignon, truffles, and foie gras as an appetizer. Then I got the catch of the day, and my wife got the lamb. I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a unique experience.

    Estela is one of my favorite restaurants in Rincon and every time we are in town we go! Amazing for small groups or large. The food is outstanding and staff is equally so and very attentive. Love the menu and how the Chef changes it every so often.

    The best meal we have had in Rincon. Chef is creative, his meals are pleasing to the eye and palate! It is well worth the slightly higher prices; you get what you pay for. We sat outside, it is a busy road, but that did not detract from our delicious meal. Highly recommend, make a reservation.

    We both got the ribeyes and it was a poor quality cut of beef with a gamey flavor and severely undercooked. Apps, two drinks, and entree and we were done in 45 minutes. Normally would be upset on pacing, but we couldn’t wait to get out of there. The Jalepeno Mezcal Margarita was good though.

    I was so excited to visit this restaurant on my first trip to PR in 2 years. The photos posted on Facebook are awesome but the actual spot was lacking ambiance. The indoor seating area felt very cold and sterile. To us it was lacking what they are portraying to be. The food was disappointing, there was no “wow” factor and not worth the anticipation. The staff did not feel as hospitable and warm as we know Puerto Rican’s to be. It could have potential but is not there yet.

    Estela is by far the best restaurant in Rincon. The food and service always exceeds expectations. Anything you order is guaranteed to be a winner and the menu is always changing, so there is always something new to try.

    Fuimos de aniversario y todos lo sabían. Bien atentos desde el comienzo. Tuvieron detalles con nosotros y la comida muy buena. Un menú bien sencillo pero excelente. El Catch of the day estuvo rico y el Fillet Mignon es el mejor que he comido y el termino de la carne justo como lo pedí. 100% recomendado.

    Our dinner at Estela was a wonderful, inventive reimagination of traditional Puerto Rican food in a quiet, atmosphere filled patio complete with the cheery sounds of coquis singing in duet with Frank Sinatra. Having the chance to hear Chef Abel’s story and his passion for his community and food made this a very special evening.

    Paper napkins with that quality of food isn’t a match. They should have cloth napkins at the minimum. Service was ok but not great more over when you buy a $100.00 bottle!
