Very good Sunday roast, including a starter and/or cheese or dessert, and extra chorizo bites as appetiser.
Very good service with nice wine recommendation.
Would definitely go again for a meat fix.

Very nice restaurant, located in one of the best area for a night out with your friends. It is a bit pricy but the quality of the food was pretty good. The service was very welcoming, very efficient and polite.
I loved the wine cellar on the back! Very dramatic effect!!
I will definitely go back to try more basque delicatessen :)

Very sneaky staff that are much more concerned about increasing your bill size than giving honest suggestions (we were suggested 500-600 grams of meat per person!)

I have visited Sagardi in Barcelona many times and this one was therefore under a lot of pressure to deliver. It did and some. Great beef, great starters and the whole ambience was great.. top marks Sagardin..

The worst steak restaurant I’ve been to in London.
We ordered a 2005 wine and they served a 2010 and failed to tell us, we informed the waiter and he took 20% off despite the difference being more.
I sound bitter now but tragic restaurant, a complete comedy.

This was not my first time in a stake house. I do know that meat is king in this kind of restaurants but I'm not expecting to be forced to choose a particular dishe just because it is the best seller. The service was to rushed we were there to enjoy the moment and even that was difficult. The constant interruption and persistence to sell more became unpleasant. The meat was very good but to expensive. They will advise you to eat 500g of meat plus side dishes.

We had a perfectly enjoyable meal, starting with the prawn carpaccio and red tuna followed by "Txuleton Vaca" washed down with a bottle of temperino. Everything was fine, my only feeling was that it was overpriced for what it was. I'm glad I experienced what Sagardo had to offer but probably wouldn't return as I feel there's better mid-range dining out there for £100 a head.

Excellent pintxos, tasty fish main courses, nice wines.

Getting hold of someone to order a glass of wine was slow a each time; no attention paid to the obviously empty glasses on our table.

Music was a whisker too loud, had to shout the conversation, especially so in the bar.

However, we are looking forward to returning to enjoy more of the pintxos, and the fabulous looking txuletón.

Confusing menu. Distinct lack of tapas. Meat was overpriced and cold (basically paid for a big chunk of bone). Sides arrived late. Had to ask three times for the bill. Overzealous waiters. £90 for starter and main for two persons. Only one side. Water to drink! I wouldn’t go back.

Sagardi is worth a try. There aged steaks look really impressive but it is an acquired taste. It reminded me a bit of South African soft Biltong.

Personally, I'd rather get an Argentine steak, seared and simply seasoned. More tasty and half the price.

The setting is sparse so you could definitely go with large groups and not be heard by you neighbours.

Wine list and staff - excellent.
