Once again this special evening was a must to attend. The atmosphere, service and the food (except for one blip - the cream in our profiteroles was off) was superb. The Flamenco, especially the dancing, was outstanding. Thank you guys - I'll be there again soon.

A great little restaurant with very friendly, welcoming staff and great food. Our waiter was very engaging and helped us choose our selection of tapas. All our dishes came out piping hot and were very tasty. We are looking forward to our next visit.

This was our first visit to El Sabio and it will NOT be our last. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly and accommodating to our group. We perhaps ordered a little bit more food than we should have but it was so good there wasn't anything left on the table. Great range, great flavours and the house... More

We had a groupon voucher given us for Christmas and we are glad we did. I have to say it is one of the best Tapas Restaurants we have been to. We had a selection of six tapas which was plenty for lunch . The vegetarian option was excellent and full of flavour without being too flavoured. We also had... More

9 of us went to El Sabio last Saturday night- it's quite a large restaurant and was fairly busy with a few other big groups. Drinks order taken quickly however there was a long wait for any food. We would have liked bread and olives a bit sooner. The food is of superb quality especially enjoyed the croquettes and the... More

We have been coming here off and on over the years and whilst the restaurant looks and smells the same, I fear it's hitherto high standards are slipping. Service is good and friendly but the food is not maintaining its high standards, or didn't on the night we visited. We thought most the dishes we had were unnecessarily oily, not... More

We were pushed to order because it was going to get busy... but it didn't. The waiters were pretty grumpy. The food was distinctly average, not what you would expect from an independent restaurant. The calamari was awful and the Spanish omelette was a tiny cold slice. Really quiet too, I wouldn't bother.
