Recommended for the brunch

We had a good brunch here but a pretty long one for about 2.5h despite some of the misses. We were lucky enough to be sitting in front of the air condition as the restaurant wasn’t chilled enough. Service was pretty OK though it didn’t start off well until we told them that we haven’t gotten any of our food after they have been ordered for quite a while. I believe that this restaurant is really short staffed and that explains the slightly forgetful service. So, we learnt a trick – that is to remind them about our food if we don’t see them in about 15min and they would be promptly served. Then again, if you are really patient and would like to have some pretty good tapas at a very reasonable price, then brunch at Sabio duxton would be your choice!

Nice Spanish Tapas

For full review and pics, visit therantingpanda.com The Vieiras en salsa de cava ($14) is such an endearing dish! The sea scallops are very fresh and huge, which is perfect when cooked in the sparkling white wine sauce. We finished every bit of the sauce. The La Medula ($19) is one of my

Pedestrian and a little bit overpriced unless you've got the palate card

Even on a Thursday night, the small place was operating at a 80%-90% capacity. I suppose its popularity is why Sabio has a no reservations policy. I didn't quite get the hype though, the

Awful service, not cheap

Went on a Monday night and the 3 wait staff were completely overwhelmed by the 60% full restaurant.

Service was slow, my first dish was wrong, 2 things we ordered never came, the overly sweet cocktails came during dish #2 of 3... Painful. The bill at the end just rubbed salt in the wound.

Would have
