The decor is nothing short of gorgeous, with design a self-declared focus for the owners here. But there’s no way Estel could be accused of style over substance. Thankfully, the attention to detail follows through into the food. This place produces impeccably presented dishes bursting with flavour making it a firm favourite among the people lucky enough to find it. Mediterranean specialities sit effortlessly alongside plates from further afield.
