They're back! Take a bite out of Summer with Chef Snyder's Grilled Peaches. Topped with fresh slices of avocado and drizzled in green onion lime vinaigrette this sweet and refreshing dish is one you don't want to miss before it's gone. #EstebanRestaurant #CasaMunras #Monterey 📷: @offthemenu831

Chic spot for Spanish & Mediterranean fare with an indoor fireplace & outdoor patio with fire pits.- Google
"They make an excellent martini and a lovely warm chocolate cake dessert."
"Continental breakfast selection was very limited and hot entrees were sub-par."

I would recommend sitting outside by the fire pits if the weather is nice, it's a great atmosphere. The service was fantastic. Great drinks, I would recommend the basque burro. You have to understand that everyone has their own preference in food, spice, flavor. So i'll say that the food was excellent, others say it was bland, boring,etc. Try it yourself and find out.

Hi Andrew, Thank you for the fabulous 5 star review and for joining us for dinner. We could not agree more that our outside patio is the perfect place on a warm summer evening to enjoy drinks and shared plates. We are so glad you enjoyed the Basque Burro and look forward to welcoming you back soon. Sincerely, Management of the Inns of Monterey

Delicious tapas variety! The octopus and hanger steak were my favorite! Our server, Richard, was great at explaining the menu options and answering our questions. The pairing of their house Spanish red wine and the hanger steak was sublime! Too bad I was too full to try their desserts. I don't mind going back just to try them. Great place!
Response from the owner - a month ago
Hi Evelyn, Thank you for the wonderful 5 star review and for choosing to join us for dinner. We are so pleased to find out that you enjoyed our range of tapas and our signature Pulpa Confit. A wonderful way to travel through our dessert menu is with our Sweet Hour promotion. During the last hour we are open each day we offer a special two for one dessert. Be sure to mention this promotion to your server and indulge in a little "sweetness." Sincerely, Management of the Inns of Monterey

I know a good restaurant. I use to have one. What they do right: Thomas Snyder walks the floor to see if all is well with the food. The waiter/waitresses are informed and cordial and not silly. Professional is the word. The bartenders I have had have all be professional but not distanced. It is not a sports bar. It is a "bistro" in the classical sense. Small, informal, with good yet simple (not THAT simple) food and good spirits and wine. It is the place I would liked to have had. (I was pretty close.) Even the house wine is far above what I find in most other restaurants. Go. Tell 'em Eric sent you. Whomever Eric is.

I've never written a review on Google, and never considered doing so before until I ate at this restaurant and found that I loved it so much, that I thought, "they deserve an awesome rating for this lovely experience". Seriously, a fantastic find. One of the very best restaurants in Monterey, and fair-priced too. Esteban honors the tapas style, while adding their own individual flair to the menu. Very attentive staff. Everything I've tried here has been delicious. Especially love the pulled pork empanadas, the short rib, the button mushrooms, and the apple tart dessert. You can't go wrong here.

We are always adding new seasonal menu items and if you haven't been before we hope to welcome you to our next Paella Tuesday where you can try some of Chef Snyder's favorite dishes.

Service was very good. Food presentation was good. Food taste was bland, muddy, and uninspired except for the Gem Lettuce Cups which were great. The outdoor fire was also nice.
