BóRN is the 3rd venue in the Tapavino stable and takes its cue from the tapas bars & restaurants in & around El Born, Barcelona. Located on the waterfront in Barangaroo, We take inspiration from the Spanish classics but with a modern twist.
Our endless pages of over 300 Spanish wines and 80 Sherries is an important component of our obsession of all things Spanish, and this reflects in our dedication of bringing the most exciting boutique and artisan wines from around Spain to the Australian Market.

    It was one of the best dinner experience, right from seating experience to food and drinks suggestions, to service! Booked in advance, we were quickly shown to our table. The wait staff were super attentive and had plenty of great suggestions right from the starters, mains, wine and drink pairing with the food. Not sure I will be able to name all the authentic Spanish dish names, but the pictures should do the job. Overall loved the food and the different variety of Spanish beers! Definitely recommend if you want an authentic Spanish experience which is more than just tapas!

    One of the worst experiences of my life. The food was bland, all the meals, really bland. The seating was not private but in the the middle of the travel way. Not worth the Valantines $110.

    Food was ok, entrees and desserts great but mains/sides lazy (like the beetroot and Spanish tortilla). Set menu lacked variety and had a lot of seafood and fish despite these being two groups of food that a lot of people are allergic to. My girlfriend for example was allergic to nuts, which I made clear beforehand, and two dishes were brought out with nuts scattered everywhere. Poor service.

    For Valentines Day, the wife and I decided to head back to Born by Tapavino for an early dinner. For me the 3rd occasion, for her the second. Facing a 3hr drive home, it was really good to be able to book our table for 4.30pm. Not every restaurant has such an early time. Given our past excellent dining experience, our expectations were high. They were met. The wait staff are attentive to the extreme but without being bothersome or hanging around. Our waiter would spot my wine glass almost empty and re-fill in seconds. For entree we shared the Warm Cow’s Milk Cheese Wrapped In Jamón Serrano, Truffled Honeycomb with Toast. OMG. Wow. We also shared one Spiced Chicken Skewer. Very tender and delicious. For main, I had my usual Lamb Fillets, White Bean Purée, Pistachio Picada, and as usual it was cooked just right and delicious. She had the Fish of the Day, which was Salmon and, in her opinion, the best fish she had had in while (She loves fish). We also shared a side dish of Fried Potatoes, Rosemary, Alioli and they were AMAZING. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. A big plus for us is the fact we can order wine before 5.30pm and get 50% off. Given the EXTENSIVE Spanish wine list, this allows us to have a really nice wine we would normally not have. But now the 50% Happy Hour only applies to selected wines. However, the choice in price varies greatly, so no issue there. We chose a 2012 Tempranillo normally $270 reduced to $135 and it was DIVINE. This restaurant is pricing itself in the Fine Dining category, so not cheap. The single chicken skewer was $15. Knowing this, we save up going there for special occasions. Given that, our recent dining experience was very much enjoyed.

    A liltle disappointing regards food and service. The waiter was friendly when he interacted but our water wasn’t refilled, table not wiped clean and just generally felt like they were perhaps short staffed…. Food was mixed, bruschetta was nice, sardines OK but the lamb was pretty average, little chewy tbh and such a tiny portion for almost $40. Overall just OK, nice vibe down Barangaroo, but won’t rush back here or recommend Born.

    The banquet we had was absolutely delicious and we were very grateful to the staff for being accommodating with veg and allergy requests in a larger group. We were after a casual but tasty meal with friends and got excellent wine and service as well The teenagers with us also loved this restaurant. Not always easy with diverse preferences!

    Fantastic service on the day - 10/10. Super friendly, great recommendation and prompt responses to request even when the place got really busy. BORN has been one of our favourites, however under the current economy situation, unfortunately the price has gone to a range where the cost and food portion took an impact. It has indeed gotten more expensive with shrunk food portion. Nevertheless, it is still a great place to have a good social meal, chit-chat and have tasty food - just budget well prior.

    Came with my 2 friends last night for a birthday dinner. We were off to a good start with the friendly waiter helping us assist with the menu. We arrived at 6:15 and told we had the table till 8pm for the next party. As one of my friends was a bit late and we were talking and drinking, we didn’t order till at least 6:45. The food itself was not too bad (not amazing) but we were constantly reminded of how much time we had left. As 8pm approached, we were still eating and drinking, and the waiter came to our table, gave us the bill without us asking for it, and cleared the table even though we were not finished. We found this extremely rude. Our booking was for 2 hours from the time we arrived, not the time of the booking. It’s not a good look when you’re trying to enjoy dinner with your friends and having to be almost forced out. This is everything wrong with the Sydney food scene. I will not be coming again.

    Our recent visit to Born Tapavino left us with mixed feelings and a sense of disappointment that lingered throughout the dining experience. It was very disappointing that upon our arrival we were told that the seating was for 1hour 45min, contrary to the 2 hours timeframe stated on the booking page. Felt we were being rushed. Plates constantly being moved before we had finished our portions. This practice not only felt intrusive but also added to the sense of being hurried through our meal. While efficient service is appreciated, it should not compromise the comfort and enjoyment of patrons. We were a group of 10 and had to select the banquet which was average in quality, I was hoping for something more interesting. I will look elsewhere for larger groups next time.
