The SAGARDI Group was founded in 1996 with the goal of seeking our gastronomic roots and offer high-quality, solid and authentic dishes. Over the years, this project has become a prestigious referent in the restaurant world, one that initially specialised in quality Basque cooking and today has diversified into other gastronomic cultures as well.
The initial project dates back to 1994, when Iñaki and Mikel López de Viñaspre opened the first IRATI restaurant in Sant Pere de Ribes (Barcelona). One year later it was moved to its current location in the historical centre of Barcelona. Based on IRATI, which became the seed of today’s SARGARDI BASQUE COUNTRY CHEFS restaurants, the group has evolved and grown to become what it is today.
