Sagardi Basque Country Chefs is part of SAGARDI GROUP, a large restaurant group championing Basque Gastronomy since 1996, founded by Chef Iñaki López de Viñaspre.

London is the 30th restaurant to launch and is situated in the centre of one of London's most bustling food and drink hubs, Shoreditch.

Simple, healthful cooking including meat and fish grilled over hot coals, marmitako stews, txistorra sausage, Idiazabal sheep’s cheese, “txipirones” (baby squid) and “roxario” salted cod omelette.

If you take your steak as seriously as the Basques do, relish in the restaurants premium red meat Txuleton (chuleton in Spanish) or Txuleta; enormous rib steaks from fattened, old cows that have lived in complete freedom with a 100% natural diet (min 6 years old).

Boasting an array of crafted beverages, a collection of over 200 wines, exquisite champagne, G&T´s, cocktails, traditional Basque vermouth and cider, trendy “perron” glasses and the famous TXAKOLI.

We choose our meat from the best herds available using cows, starting from at least six years old, ensuring that all of our beef is at the height of its flavour. Upon contact with the oak wood-fired grill, this incredible tasting meat comes to life with its uniquely clean and distinctive flavours from the land, milk and grass all shining through. The palate never tires of the spectacular taste of our sublime aged beef, you won't be able to get enough. In short, it is an honest, natural, top quality product

Arrogant from the moment we sat down. Dismissive and rude as soon as we didn’t order on of the large steaks and asked for tap water. We would have spent just as much money on wine and sides if the waiting staff had not just about thrown the food at us. It was really disappointing. And completely uncounted for. The food was well cooked, tasty and nicely presented. But cold.

Did write a note to the restaurant to get candle for her, but that didn’t happen. Throughout the night, the service was good by the staff, the guy came round to explain different cuts. We got premium dry at £12 per 100g but they didn’t ask us how we would like the meat, so the meat came out rare and the meat had a bad smell like you just walked in the butcher, so the main part wasn’t enjoyable and not sure whether that worth the money. The starters were really good and the Spanish sausages that were on the house were delicious.

Steaks are incredible and the monkfish we had was out of this world - ordered by weight and prepared superbly. The piquillo peppers are incredibly flavoursome, and the croquetas and jamon similarly leave you well satisfied. Come for the food definitely. Service was very good although I didn't need to be upsold on wine - not necessary to just point me to the most expensive bottle chaps - we spent £500 for 4 of us so it was always going to be a big bill anyway. And therein lies my one reservation with this place. Incredible though it is, I always come out thinking that it is probably £25 a head more than it should be. But one for a special occasion for sure.

I know there’s a premium for the location. Moreover I was hosting two old friends for my birthday, and was ready to spend for a memorable meal. In short the service was hurried, unhelpful, in a near empty restaurant we were sat right adjacent to a big and loud table, and most importantly, the food was *grotesquely* overpriced. (I took my family of five to SushiSamba on a Friday night for part two of the celebration, and that bill was £100 cheaper than Sagardi!!) Never again. AMG

Sadly, we were the only people in the restaurant. However, the staff were friendly, attentive and helpful, whether talking about the menu, wine or cooking. The food was univerally excellent. This place was a real find and it is highly recommended. It also has a great wine list, although you can easily spend alot if you are not careful. We will be back.

Steak needed no sauce cooked to chefs recommendation…which was rarer then i would normally go for but it was amazing. Like to think I can cook a steak and the chef invited me in the grilling area to answer my questions, cant wait to go back!

The seasonal menu never disappoints with a few classics in between. Wine list is as impressive although a little slanted towards the high end of a dinner budget.

The starters (beside bread that was very good with olive oil) and different cod fish werent that good.. On the other hand the meat was amazing? Thats what we qent for and totally compensates.. right cooking point, tasty, really good!

The Txakoli was sublime, best we’ve had, the Txuleta was the star of the show. We went for the tasting menu. Big mistake. This place is all about the Txulet, clearly the owners are from April. We should have chosen the steak option for sure. Great meal, good service is and. Price that wasn’t too bad all in all. The cod, cured in rock salt, was simply dreadful and this was sadly an affect on the experience. My wife (Basque) knows what rock salt cured cod would be like, we mentioned it not being great but we’re treated a little poorly with the feedback to us being ‘it’s cured in sea salt’. We know. We’ve eaten Basque food for 30 years, take the feedback and take the poor quality food away, apologise and move on, don’t defend it. Other than this a great experience and we would go back for the sublime Txuleta. It was out of this world tasty.

The waiter recommended a steak to us which was quite possibly the best steak we’d ever tasted! We’d definitely go back the next time we’re in London.

Oddly not offered any side orders and had I not asked would have ended up with a big steak only. Price for steak rather opaque but would return as it was a fabulous piece of meat.

It’s expensive and heavily sold by weight with a limited number of non steak options but I’d say you come here for the steak, and you get what you pay for with great texture and flavour. The restaurant was buzzing with atmosphere so I wouldn’t recommend a cosy romantic quiet meal. Music was very loud to begin with but was soon overtaken by the buzz of the place. Spacious bar area, friendly staff, huge wine list. Again our waiter was keen on selling the more expensive wine option which was a bit fresh but just doing his job I suppose. One criticism-the Jamón jabugo was very disappointing. I noticed the leg that it was being carved from was almost down to the bone (I e nearly finished) and it was very dry and fatty, although it had the distinctive taste. It should always have some fat but this was over fatty. Was mentioned to the waiter and in hindsight I should have sent it back. At £26 a plate (the normal going rate for London for a world class product) they should get this right. Second time I have visited and I would return, although it is on the pricey side as I say. That’s why they need to get everything right.

Had Sunday roast which was clearly not a freshly plated up meal. Would give it another chance and go back for a splurge on the steak, which is what the place is all about really I think! Had the best morcilla. Wine expensive and staff a bit condescending when we chose a wine at the value end of the spectrum.

The wine was delicious too. The service is very slow. We waited 40 minutes to place a drinks order from when we arrived and couldn’t flag down a waiter that wasn’t ours. The manager looked at us waving a few times and ignored it as did the other waiters. It’s pity as it’s a nice place.

First business meal with clients since March 2020. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to do it. From start to finish it was a very personable experience, Tanya excellent with helping to book the meal, and the service from Allesandro and Martina on the evening was second to none. We had the set menu, land and sea. Some of the best fish I’ve ever tasted, complimented with perfect wines. We’ll definitely be back. I’m still talking about the food 3 days later! Thank you!

We had the ribs which I encourage all to try, as well as the duck. Portions were quite large. The staff at the beginning of the meal spent more time trying to entertain friends it seems then the actual patron's. Once they left the service became a bit better. Washrooms were a mess, and a few women including my wife had to beg for them to sort it out. The staff besides the chef just seemed to have very lack of care.

We all got the tasting menu which was very nice but very overpriced. Octopus, steak, cheesecake were all amazing but unfortunately, after 5 courses we were all left a bit hungry. Often after a tasting menu I'm stuffed but I feel this one might be missing a few sides. Some bread at the start and some potatoes with the main would have probably solved that. Overall experience was very good though, would definitely come back for the regular menu again.

I didn't eat it. sent it back and left. I would have forgiven them and ordered something else if not for the appalling service. they kept skipping our table to serve the 2 tables next to us. you had to constantly keep look around to get any attention or to get a drink. and the last nail in the coffin for me was the fact when the waitress finally deigned to come to the table she took away my half full martini. Never again - i am crushed because i loved it
