Newbury’s El Sabio Tapas Bar and Restaurant is the follow up to a hugely successful big sister already taking Winchester by storm. Just like the original, El Sabio Newbury is a friendly, family run Spanish eatery as reliant on charming service as it is on good food. The simple, contemporary interior of El Sabio is comfortable and bright, the décor vibrant in deep red and cream on both floors – the ground floor a more relaxed bar space while upstairs the space feels more restaurant-like. The brainchild of Hungarian chef Attila Vanko, El Sabio is an expression of his enthusiasm for authentic Spanish food and the easy, relaxed approach of the Spanish tapas bar to socialising and eating with family and friends. Attila sources a combination of locally farmed ingredients as well as specialty produce directly imported from Spain for us in his kitchen, the resulting tapas menu (which also features the brand’s famed paellas) a blend of freshness and authenticity.
