A word from Sangria
Finding a good independent restaurant in London can be difficult, but one of our Islington favourites is the Sangria Tapas Bar. Located just a short way from the Angel tube station on the busy Upper Street, Sangria is a hidden gem tucked away amongst the many bars and eateries that shout much louder for your attention. The small but comfortable main dining room of Sangria takes its cue from its Iberian forebears, maintaining a simple, rustic charm in the classic, unfussy décor and sturdy, basic furnishings, colour added by large prints and splashes of red paint on feature walls. The menu here is very typical of true Spanish tapas joints, providing a wide selection of small sharing dishes with plenty of seafood, cured meats, trademark paellas and other choices suited to laid back dining accompanied by, perhaps, a drink or two from the bar which serves Spanish wines and beers and, of course, the red wine cocktail that gives the restaurant its name.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Service a bit rushed and inefficient, food ok but not the best Spanish food I've eaten in London. Good choice of tapas, cocktail offers mid-week are good."
    dined on 26/04/2013
  • "Never been to this restaurant before but booked it as was an easy location for the group. Would defintely go there again -food was excellent and service was very friendly. The wine was questionable but maybe that was our fault for not doing the obvious and having sangria!"
    dined on 21/03/2013
  • "Excellent venue for big groups. Good selection of food that can suit all tastes, and appropriate for sharing. Ambiance is good for chatting - not too loud, but music and full of people on a Thursday evening so it felt like there was an atmosphere. Would recommend for big groups looking for a fun evening out."

  • "A true authentic Spanish experience - For a couple hours you could forget you were'nt on holiday.."
    dined on 02/02/2013
  • "It's about 5-10 minutes from St Pancras to the restaurant by cab and conveniently located close to Angel and the best part of the high street. "Screen on the Green" (a cinema) is just next door. There is a wide a selection of dishes to choose from so it was great for groups / sharing. Staff were accommodating and very friendly. Great night out and the Sangria taste great!"

  • "This is a great place to bring a big group of mates. Tapas was reasonable priced and the selection is big. I had a few friends who were vegetarians and there were quite few selections for them."
    dined on 07/12/2012
  • "We ate at Sangria in London. Our meal was fine (garlic bread, calamari and chick pea stew). The drinks were small and mostly ice and there was a terrible draught from the door each time it opened."

  • "Went to Sangria on last saturday with a friend. We had the mixed-paella (sea food and chicken) and were absolutely happy about it! We did wait for about 35 minutes but it was worth it. Willl definitely recommend Sangria, good food for outstanding value."
    dined on 15/09/2012
  • "We ate at Sangria in London. Service was slow - the couple on the next table left after 20 minutes as their order hadn't been taken. One of our dishes was incorrect but the food and sangria were delicious."

  • "Good tapas big portions, quick service, will come back"
    dined on 26/05/2012
  • "Pleasant meal at Sangria in Islington. Tapas all fine - nothing really special, but all perfectly adequate (if a little salty). Portion size good. Service very attentive and friendly. Restaurant generally pleasant though a smidge noisy. A decent choice in this area, but perhaps not a "wow""
    dined on 23/03/2012
  • "The tapas at Sangria come in large plates and we were absolutely stuffed after ordering only 5 plates to share between two. Fairly priced, though I wouldn't consider it cheap (£60 between 2, including a large jug of sangria). Nice atmosphere and would go back again."
    dined on 01/03/2012
  • "Went to Sangria in Angel as a last minute decision, and again didn't regret it. Service was a bit slow being saturday night at 8pm. Had plently of food (too much indeed) and have to remember to order less next time (we ordered 3 tapas each)."
    dined on 28/01/2012
  • "Sangria was fine for a post London Art Fair snack and drink but not very exciting."
