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.

Very poor when compared to Sagardi restaurants in Spain. We ordered Txuleton vaca matured beef 1kg, waitress recommended this meet and portion of 800gr between three of us (all of us normal size not big eaters). Effectively there was only about 200-250gr of real meet, it was mostly bone and excessive parts of fat and you will be paying for this at £70 per kg. We had to order two more portions of Txuleton otherwise it would have been very embarrassing.
Overall hygiene of the restaurant and service quality are poor. Manager was not interested in us being satisfied guests, he was not polite and only obsessed with making the profit, it’s a rip-off. First and last time for us to visit Sagardi, Shoreditch in London.

For a Basque/British roast this was a really good choice. Would recommend and will try again. Meat was really well cooked and the portion size was more than enough. Two courses for £26 is great value.

The reviews promised a lot but we were disappointed. Restaurant nearly empty at 1.15 and was still nearly empty when we left an hour later, so very much lacking in atmosphere. The food was perfectly nice but steep prices and a confusing menu were off-putting. Maybe we misunderstood but we were told the idea was that everything was for sharing, in which case you'd expect to order several dishes. Sadly, the "tapas" options weren't plentiful and anything that comes in at £26 (eg the stuffed baby squid) significantly impacts the budget overall
Just weren't blown away and we wouldn't rush back
