Sagardi is a Basque-inspired restaurant headed up by Iñaki López de Viñaspre. Located in the trendy area of Shoreditch, the restaurant is well-positioned in one of London’s food hubs. The focus of the menu at Sagardi is simplicity, and a devotion to quality ingredients, alongside wines and hard ciders from the Basque country, and of course the roaring Basque grill, which is the true heart of the restaurant. 

Oysters are a good way to start at Sagardi, alongside some Iberian ham croquettes or grilled morcilla from Biscay for good measure. From the grill, fish options include cod with Biscay sauce, red tuna or octopus with vegetables, as well as monkfish, turbot and seabass by the 100g. Meatier options include duck breast, beef sweetbreads with artichokes or farmhouse pork ribs.

From the “Grandma’s Cooking” section, there are more traditional dishes. These include Donostia style seafood soup, “Roxario” cod omelette, brown crab “txangurro” San Sebastian style, stuffed baby squid cooked in their own ink and braised suckling lamb trotters with Espelette pepper.

Alternatively, there is a tasting menu. This features highlights from the menu including “txistorra” (Basque sausage), “Txuleton vaca” matured beef and a selection of artisan Basque cheeses. Desserts at Sagardi follow the theme of traditional cuisine with options like “Torrija”, a bread, milk, sugar and cinnamon biscuit with sheep milk ice cream. There is also a range of sweet Basque wines available, the perfect accompaniment.

Sagardi also offers a Sunday lunch, featuring dry aged boneless Txuleton beef from retired Basque dairy cows, served with home-grown vegetables, beef dripping potatoes, homemade Yorkshire puddings and gravy. The wine list showcases bottles from the Basque region, as well as cocktails like dry Martinis, bloody Marys, negronis and more. Basque hard cider is a specialty here, available in 150 and 750ml pours.

Amazing food, too expensive

Not the best value for money, there are other restaurants in London with a similar menu for less

Best steak in London!

Such a fantastic restaurant located in the heart of Shoreditch. Staff very knowlegeable and passionate about their extensive wine list and dry aged beef steak. If you are a meat lover you must check this place out, incredible meat cuts from old dairy cows cooked on the grill right in front of you! My new favourite restaurant in London!

Superb Basque experience
Opened in August and the best steak I've eaten in the city (or edge of anyway). Pick from with either the Vaca (6-7 year old cow) or Buey (similarly aged steers). Without doubt the tastiest meat you will eat anywhere in the square mile because uniquely they allow the organically produced beef to grow much older than your usual beast. Hanging is then between 12 and 14 weeks. This type of ageing is not found in Britain. Finished on the Basque grill to whatever level of cooked you desire results in something spectacularly good... There's a Pintxo bar at the front for those wanting a snack. Very good morcilla and catalan sausage from the Basque grill with superb tuna tartare make delicious starters. Fresh fish brought in daily also finds it way onto the grill and is served Basque style too. shall be returning for that as looked wonderful. Superb Spanish wine list with some real rarities as well as some giants of the region - Vega Sicilia, Pingus, La Ermita etc... This place is a hungry forager's Aladdin's cave. Pricing is reasonable given the quality of the product, but it can get punchy if you let loose on the wines.
