True tapas aficionados know that when it comes to finding a place to kick back with a delicious bottle of Spanish wine and nibble on tasty morsels, they rarely consider anything other than Sabio Tapas Bar. Located in the bustling Duxton Hill enclave of Tanjong Pagar, this is one of the spots in Singapore where you can enjoy tapas with your friends in a fun and convivial atmosphere similar to that in Spain. Tables at this downtown gem tend to fill up fast, so we highly recommend that you reserve ahead.
Tapas bars are fast becoming the next big thing in Singapore’s F&B scene but one only needs to look to Duxton Hill to try out one of the originals. Tucked within a row of shophouses in the hip enclave, Sabio Tapas Bar was among the first of its kind to open its doors in Singapore and it remains a refined spot in Tanjong Pagar to flock to for that after-work hangout with your friends and co-workers.
On the menu at Sabio Tapas Bar is a varied selection of hot and cold tapas made with the freshest seasonal produce imported from Spain and around Asia. Popular picks include the pan con boquerones y tapenade (mini baguette with green olives tapenade and anchovies), croquetas de jamón (ham croquettes) and gambas al pil pil (sizzling prawns in virgin olive oil and garlic), so order them to share with your crew, along with a bottle of red from the Spanish wine-producing regions of Rioja or Ribera del Duero. You can’t go wrong at this Tanjong Pagar hotspot that everyone’s been talking about, so reserve a table now to avoid disappointment.
Had a lovely night! The sangria was awesome and the food was delicious!
Seriously awesome. I have not ever rated any restaurant a ‘6’ before now. This place is fantastic. The food is simply awesome. Lots of choice and cooked and presented exactly as you would expect. Service is not just good it’s fabulous. The staff are actually genuinely friendly and attentive. But wait....if you were to order everything on the menu it would cost several hundred dollars, however you can take the “all you can eat” option for just $59.90......I had to ask if that was a typo on the menu. Please just go. You won’t be disappointed
I had a great casual tapas dinner. The venue felt relaxed and service was very prompt. It was easy to progressively order dishes which is how tapas should be.
love the food and the ambience of the restaurant, will be back soon
good food, nice vibes, accomodating staff, friendly boss/manager. the only issue i would raise is that the space is pretty tight and if you are two like us ordering a few plates (we got 8) at a space for two, the table gets full after just two plates - excluding drinks - and the plates just kept on coming which made no sense as we weren’t eating that fast. we eventually moved to a table for four but i can imagine that it could get tricky on a busy night. pace the serving maybe?
Food was very good however service could be better improved. We booked a table for 4 however we were given a table that was very low and small thus it made the meal very uncomfortable. The kitchen took very long to serve our clams dish - we ordered at the start of the meal but the dish was only served AFTER dessert despite numerous chasers. The other dishes came within 10-20 min wait which was acceptable, other than the clams.
My Husband and I have quite a few favourites here. Always a good experience coming here for a date night. The scallops, the Gambas and the lamb are delicious and the sauces are always great with an extra serving of bread. We love the bone marrow too
Friendly staff, cosy environment. However, choice of spanish dishes was limited. Most of the dishes I ordered was an attempt in fusion of local and spanish cuisine. The 2 dishes that I really like was the prawn and scallop. Was a bit disappointed when they don't have paella in the menu.
Great service. Friendly staff and many vegetarian options! You can choose anything from the menu or go with the All you can eat option. Do not miss the churros for desert.
Great food and nice staff. Good location for a Sunday Brunch. You can choose between non-alcoholic option or alcoholic option which includes Cava and Sangria (Red and White)
