Steakhouse
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.

  • A Basque Kitchen's Pintxo Lunch

    £29.00 per person

    Multiple dates available
    Pintxos are small plates served at bars and taverns throughout the Basque Country and serve as the backbone of the local cuisine and culture. Chef Iñaki Lopez de Viñaspre has created a tantalising set lunch menu consisting of four authentic pintxos that give homage to the Basque Country. Available in our bar, Monday to Saturday, 12pm-5pm.

  • Off Peak Fridays

    £52.00 per person

    Multiple dates available
    A very limited menu every Friday for the next few weeks! You'll be greeted with a glass of Basque cider and the original Basque appetiser, Pintxo Gilda. A skewer made up of pepper, anchovy and olives. Incredible flavour and very typical from the Basque Country. The menu starts with some Jamon Iberico that we're hand-cutting. The fat completely melts in your mouth, releasing the most intense flavours. Followed by croquetas with pan con tomate, chargrilled baby leeks, and Txistorra, a fresh Basque sausage that we're making with the best raw ingredients; fresh minced pork, garlic, salt, parsley and paprika. Juicy sirloin steak from the parrilla, and a warm Basque cheesecake served with a dollop of homemade blueberry jam.

  • A Basque Butchers Roast

    £35.00 per person

    Multiple dates available
    You only get one choice, but it’s a good one: Dry-aged boneless "Txuleton" beef, served with beef dripping roast potatoes, a selection of seasonal vegetables from our Basque Country gardens, homemade Yorkshire puddings and signature gravy. Served from midday until we run out at £35 per person (two people or more).

    Indifferent food in odd portion sizes, inconsistent service, felt too much like a chain for the price point they are aiming at. Now I know why I was able to get a table for 4 there at short notice on a Saturday.

    We had a nice night at Sagradi but feels like they are working out some kinks. The hostess at the front desk clearly has no customer service experience. We had a booking on open table which I had booked weeks in advance. She made me look it up on my phone and then proceeded to tell me that open table doesn’t work and that she can “squeeze me in” even though restaurant is 75% empty. The steak was excellent and the sides were also tasty but overall it just felt expensive and just nice. We weren’t blown away. I think if the prices were adjusted and service improved then it could be a really great experience as the concept is really cool and the food is tasty.

    The main event, the steak was amazing. The overpriced sides were ridiculously tiny. Creamed chad was a tiny sauce with a tea spoon. Maybe you get 4 teaspoons. Delicious but tiny. Mashed potatoes was a tiny portion in a bowl. Maybe seven teaspoons. Been eating here for years, but I think value is falling. Prices on website are out of date.

    First time we’ve dined in this restaurant and certainly won’t be the last. The dinning area is really well fitted out with the attention to detail being first class from the “butchers shop” where you pick your own meat to the open charcoal fire where the chefs prepare excellent steaks. For London,the gaps between the tables are a lot better than most of the restaurants in the area making for a good dining experience. The food is extremely flavoursome and perfectly seasoned with rustic presentation which adds to the country style food theme. Good quality wine and first class service which makes this a little gem in the heart of vibrant Shoreditch.

    We followed our waiter’s recommendations who considered everyone’s dietary needs. It seemed like a lot of food, but we cleared everything and left feeling fed with perfectly proportioned food that was delicious. It is my third visit and certainly not my last.

The stake and Basque cheesecake was so delicious too! The ambiance, service were top. We will definitely come back

    The food was very tasty but portions too small. We went for the Sunday roast and a board came out with little amount of sides and sauce. When we asked for more they didn’t seem to provide. The bill was just under 150 and we had to go get more food elsewhere! Should of complained really.

    Place looks beautiful and staff is very attentive, a minor call on delivering bills and accepting payment which too a little too long Food whilst tasty we felt the nanny dishes would be the best of the best, but just haven’t had that extra ompth tht we were expecting The matured meat was delicious although a tad too tough, but really good nonetheless Reception/reservations team called saying that there was a system glitch and they were super professional and attentive and in the end we were accommodated in the main dining room, so kudos to them

    Left with whatever steak sizes were on the board! Turned out incredibly expensive compared to what was on the menu. Sat within half a foot of other guests which was awkward and the food was okay. Service was absolutely brilliant though to be fair.
