Menu & Wine List

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting us so that I can share my passion for Spanish food. I have over 20 years experience as a chef. Our menu contains simple but traditional dishes and I only use personally selected ingredients, including those from the Valencia region in Spain which are sourced by my friend Antonio.

I very much hope you will enjoy your meal at El Sabio, however if you have any comments, or if you think we can improve on anything, please do not hesitate to share with us so that we can do better next time.
