“A hidden treasure in this side street in old Jerez”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

A lazy afternoon in Jerez, having read some very good reports about Sabores we walked into this hidden treasure, through a cute garden.
A beautiful authentic, old house with cosy corners: a promising entourage for a good meal!
It broke our heart to find a totally deserted restaurant, tables set so nicely, interior so stylish.
We were the only guests upon arrival and remained the only guests.......

Our waiter, Antonio, was very polite and helpfull and served us nicely.
We chose the Tapa tasting menue for 2, offering us a large selection of their kitchen.
Some very surprising dishes, unexpected combinations but all extremely tasty and served beautifully.
We drank nice, cool beer with our meal and found it a perfect match.
The last dish, the cheese cake Calabaza, was só good that we ordered a second portion....
Two different types of coffee and a glass of Jerez' brandy completed our meal.

A true delight it was, a big compliment to the chef & kitchen staff (we dared to enter the kitchen for a split second and tell them ourselves...). We wish you lots of satisfied guests and happy reports for the future!

“Boring and too salty”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Savores wants to be a fine restaurant, but the food is simply not good and a way to salty. The only good thing is that they offer Tapas and half portion, otherwise we would not been able to finish some of the dishes we ordered (not because it was too much, but because we did not wanted to eat more than that little portion they offered). We had the following dishes: 1. The Pâté de morcilla iberico - just a simple Pâté with a tiny little bit of apple chutney (and not a very good one) - just ok
2. Cod fish with hummus and roasted paprika - the combination did not match and the roasted paprika was tasteless
3. Tartar solomillo ternero - a beef tartar, well seasoned, probably the best dish of the whole meal
4. Toasta d carne mechado - a toasted bread (to old) with some cold pork meat and cheese on it - tasted like something from the cheapest tourist tapas bar
5. Foie mi-cuit with sherry gelee and red jam- sounds interesting but the sherry gelee tasted really bad and was bitter and the Foie was just foie and the red jam was...not idea
6. Seasonal mushrooms with slow cooked poached egged - again, the combination did not match and the slow cooked egged might as well be micro-waved eggs - nobody would notice any difference
7. Grilled vegetables with squid and ginger - we could not find any ginger and the whole dish was soo salty that we used half a bottle of water to wash at least the squid, the vegetables were almost not eatable

The house wine rioja was ok, waitress friendly & ambience fine - but if you want a good diner go elsewhere (check my other review in Jerez)

“Wonderful food in a lovely intimate setting”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Our fifth visit to Jerez. We always eat at Sabores where the service and food is excellent. You can drop in for lunch or supper, have a quick meal before a flamenco show or linger over all courses. The quality of the food is very good, the presentation excellent and there is imaginative use of ingredients. I loved the creamy parsnip soup with a pile of delicate white mushrooms in the centre served with several tiny squares of sharp and salty tuna daps for variety. Hake goujons were lovely and crispy, served with lemon mayonnaise. We have a fabulous steak last year and this year I have had the pumpkin cheesecake with yogurt and sugared pumpkins three times! Not too sweet, just right for me. Antonia as a host is perfect and the gin and tonics very generous. You can eat outside in the lovely garden in the summer, In the winter you sit in the cosy interior.The restaurant deserves to be no 1 in Jerez!

“Very simple food! ”
Reviewed 5 March 2014 via mobile

Had the tasting menu with wine pairing( I'll get back to this) for 45 € pp. Restaurant is nice and the staff is friendly but the food had nothing special and is over priced. The wine pairing was one Sherry aperitif then the waiter opened a bottle of white wine and left it on the table. We asked if the bottle was for us and we got a "have as much as you want" answer. Two fish dishes with the same white wine and finally changed for the same wine company but red for the meat. Same family, same region. Ok local wine but defiantly not a Spanish tour as written on the menu. The most expensive evening of our trip and absolute not the best. The are much better restaurants in Jerez!!!

“One not to miss!”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

My partner and I enjoyed an excellent meal in this first class restaurant. The service and food was superb as was the very extensive wine list. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable when asked about the appropriate wines and was spot on with every one we tried with each course. The Ambiance was modern yet not minimalist making it feel inviting and classy. The restaurant was also a big hit with the locals which of course is testament to how good the food is in such a gastronomic city as Jerez. The courtyard area also had wi-fi, not necessarily a pre cursor when choosing a place to eat but certainly handy for my Social Networking updates to make all my friends at home a little envious!
