Lovely atmosphere on Friday night. Great tapas and wine. Lovely staff. Nice churros. Definitely visiting more often Could do with a few more veggie options but what is on offer is great.

Service was slow not enough staff for quantity of people. Squashed onto a table too small for 11 people. The meat paella was just a huge bowl of bones in soup, very little rice. Rip off! Will not be returning.

Moved to another part of Wokingham town centre to a bigger place. Like the new decor! Staff as friendly as ever, particularly Lamri (of Come Dine with Me fame!!), Like their tapas but their fajitas are excellent! Make a nice cup of coffee too

It is fantastic to see this place growing and as is does new team members joining and adding to the ambience. Warmly greeted back yesterday for Sunday lunch as if we had never been away it makes such a difference. Lovely family lunch as always think we had most of the tapas and some twice. Nothing is ever to much... More

At first not sure if we had the right place as there is no exterior signage, the Spanish decor confirmed our thoughts. Great, buzzing ambiance, very friendly and attentive staff, even with the place full on a Saturday night (booking in advance highly recommended.) Very tasty selection of tapas followed by a shared dish of seafood paella (a touch over... More

Last time I visited Sanpa was in their old location and I wasn't that impressed. Having been there last night my opinion is completely changed. The new location is bigger and more comfortable. All the food was delicious. We tried a variety of tapas and then shared a meat paella and a fish paella. All the food was delicious. The... More

Recently visited for the 5th time, it's now my favourite restaurant in Wokingham. I've always had to book and they are always busy, a good sign that this is a popular place any night of the week. There is limited serving staff and they are alway busy, however, they are extremely polite and helpful. If you want a real Spanish... More

Great service and incredible food, Sanpa is highly recommended for a laid-back meal. Always book to avoid disappointment as space is limited and this place is so popular- for good reason! W e have been several times now and always go for their set menu which changes regularly. This gives you the proper experience of authentic Spanish cuisine, at such... More

We had booked a table on a Saturday evening. Given it was extremely busy when we arrived, I assume they had taken a lot of bookings. However, they only had two waiting staff on. Both of whom were excellent, and I felt sorry for them. The lack of service (having to ask four times for some bread), was not their... More

Description
Sanpa is a small organic family business; growing with customer demands and feedback. I started off on my own selling extra virgin olive oil and fried tomato. The shop used to be located right at the end of Peach street with nothing more than boxes of olive oil and tomatoes. Growth has had to be modest, being entirely reliant on ourselves. Coffee was one of the first requests and investments after the olive oil and tomatoes. We wanted to offer people decent coffee, as this is standard in Spain and in many other parts of the continent. Paella Friday, shortly became a tradition and still is at the new premises. Over time, our customers have voiced how they'd like to go for a coffee, a glass of wine, eat something and not break the bank, but eat and drink well. This is how we see ourselves at this stage. Now we are able to offer a small selection of tapas during the day and a set menu in the evenings. We are thankful to our customers constructive feedback and look forward to our unwritten future.
