Deeply rooted


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 Barcelona, in the historical centre of the city. 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.

With over 25 years of experience, today the SAGARDI GROUP is a project in the midst of international expansion and a solid brand on Spain’s gastronomic scene. It currently has more than 15 brands and more than 30 establishments , most of them in Spain but also located in Porto, Amsterdam, Buenos Aires and London.

Euskadi Gastronomika

Ambassadors of Basque gastronomy

The SAGARDI Group is a member of the Euskadi Gastronomika Product Club of Basquetour, the Basque Tourism Agency, as a strategic partner. This concept perfectly fits the mission of the SAGARDI Group, which was founded with a desire to revive traditional Basque cuisine in order to export it to the world. The company pays special attention to the selection of its products and has reached agreements with artisan Basque producers to offer the best products from the Basque Country on its restaurant menus, all crafted with a creative touch and accompanied by the best wines and hard ciders from the Basque Country.
