The dream and inspiration of two people who moved to Kent in 2006 to start a new adventure, has materialised into Rico Sabor Restaurant. A warm and welcoming place where customers enjoy delicious food and drink within the beautifully created ambience and music.

Passion, dedication and a love for good food are the key ingredients that have created Rico Sabor Restaurant. Bringing the best fusion of the most loved dishes from Spain and Latin American, including dishes from Peru and Mexico and a tasty selection of Tapas and Paellas.

We are very proud to bring the flavours and spirit of Spain and Latin America to the town centres of Gravesend and Rochester (opening soon)

Head Chef and Owner Julian, has a passion for Spanish and Latin American food since a very young age. His motivation and drive are to modernise and bring fantastic flavours unique to Rico Sabor, ensuring that every customer is satisfied. He has been in the industry for 20 years and has made many customers happy with his creative mouth-watering menus.

We ensure that only the best quality ingredients are used, many of which are sourced locally, and enhanced with lots of passion before being crafted into delicious dishes. We take pride in every dish and work together in ensuring that only excellence leaves the kitchen!

These delicious dishes can be enjoyed with a fantastic range of wines, beers, spirits and cocktails from Spain, Chile, Colombia, Argentina, Mexico and Brazil. Our customers enjoy the lively atmosphere and music that transports them to the ambience of Spain and Latin America. Customers often complement the food and décor many have said that it makes them feel like they are on holiday, which is the ultimate compliment for this creative eatery.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

We arrived late in the evening on the off chance that we would be served. Staff were very welcoming. We ordered 5 tapas, all of which arrived promptly and were delicious. Our favourites were the garlic mushrooms, meatballs and chicken and chorizo skewers. Will definitely return.


Went here with friends and ordered lots of tapas and some nachos and can honestly say every single dish (we ordered 10!) was full of flavour and cooked perfectly.
In terms of service the staff were all friendly and attentive so no complaints there and for the amount of food and drink we had I’d say it’s reasonably priced too.
Would definitely recommend and look to go back again and maybe try the Mexican half of the menu


Been waiting for a while to have a meal at this restaurant and had heard mixed reviews. We visited last night as a party of four and it certainly did not disappoint! When we arrived the restaurant was very busy and the music adds to the vibe of the place. We were sat at our table and within five minutes were offered menus and drinks. Our starters came out within an acceptable time, as was the period between our starters and main courses. All food was cooked perfectly, came out together and was piping hot. The staff were extremely attentive and Michael looked after us throughout the evening. Gravesend needs a restaurant like this, thank you Rico Sabor, keep up the good work!


Myself and my partner have been waiting to try this place for some time but never got round to it. Well we will definitely be visiting again the food was delicious and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was just like you were not even in this country like you were abroad.


The food was excellent here.

I was worried that a table outside during one of the winiest days (weekend) of the year would be too cold, but the outdoor heaters were on and we were covered by a tent.
This building was the former jail in Gravesend and the restaurant has pleasantly turned the cells into private booths.
I managed to get a good vegan meal here and the food was enjoyed by all.
The head waiter is a character and made the evening.


Great atmosphere .We booked a cell and had a fantastic night with friends. The food was lovely, fresh and full of flavor.The service was outstanding even on a very busy Saturday night and we are definitely going to return.



If you have a special occasion, it is highly recommended that you book..
