Founded by Nieves Barragan and José Etura, Sabor (meaning flavour in Spanish) takes you on a journey from the tapas bars of Andalucía through to the asadors of Castile and the seafood restaurants of Galicia.
Located on Heddon Street, Sabor has three distinct areas – The Counter and bar on the ground floor and the El Asador on the first floor, each offering a different taste and experience of Spanish cuisine and hospitality.
Sabor was awarded a coveted star by the Michelin Guide in 2018.
Nieves Barragán and co-owner José Etura have created something authentic and truly joyful with Sabor. There are three distinct areas: on the ground floor is the bar and, opposite, a counter serving tapas from all over Spain. Upstairs is El Asador – the only area for which
bookings are taken – and here you can enjoy specialities from Galicia and Castile. There are two must-haves: the succulent Segovian suckling pig roasted in the specially built oven, and the melt-in-the-mouth octopus cooked in vast copper pans; you’ll be licking your lips for hours.
Sabor means ‘flavour’ in Spanish. But to dine here gives you more than just a flavour of Spain. You’ll leave feeling like you’ve been fully immersed in the country’s proud culinary traditions.
There are three distinct dining areas specialising in tapas, seafood and asador cuisine (succulent meat cooked on a traditional wood-fired oven). Highlights of the tapas menu include chicken oyster bocadillo and tortillas, while upstairs in El Asador the suckling pig is unmissable. You might want to make three trips to get the full Sabor experience.
