Head Chef, Sabor

About Us:


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. Sabor focuses on capturing the flavour of Spain as well as showcasing the use of traditional ingredients and cooking methods, and a relaxed approach to dining.

The quality of the produce our kitchen enjoys is unparalleled. Upstairs in the Asador, whole suckling pigs are cooked in the wood-fired oven, and octopus are simmered in giant copper pots. Downstairs in the restaurant, a seafood counter sits next to dining bar, where guests can oversee the kitchen in full service.

Sabor is also part of JKS Restaurants’ group, which currently includes Michelin Star-awarded restaurants, Trishna, Gymkhana, Kitchen Table and Lyle’s; as well as  Hoppers, Bao, Xu, Brigadiers, Berenjak, Bubbledogs and Motu. There are ambitious plans for growth, with the opening of further restaurants across all ends of the market and types of cuisine, both imminently and over the coming years, making this is a very exciting time to join the team
