Amazing from start to finish, as always. The jamon with burrata and pickled onion is a favourite and never disappoints. We tried the meatballs for something new and these were very tasty. The pate was also a highlight. The 500 ml of Pinot noir ordered was delicious and very reasonably priced. Will definitely be back!

We had such a wonderful experience! Couldn't fault a thing. The food and bubbles was bloody delicious. Our waitress was unreal, she was subtle, our glasses were always full and she provided great recommendations - advising against a starter in addition to the set menu. The set menu was unreal, a great variety of flavours and perfect sized portions. There was a great buzz for a Tuesday night. HIGHLY recommend. Can't wait to visit again!

Technology was overused to send a message to contact the venue minutes before our booking time to confirm arrival (after a reminder the day before). We were sat very close to a large noisy group - table locations are to maximise people, not for comfort. The tapas was quality but not great value for money. If it wasn't for patas bravas, I think we would have gone hungry. We've just returned from Barcelona and this was nothing like the fabulous dining experiences there. There are much better dining experiences for the price at Barangaroo.

Struggle to see how it has 4.5 star rating. Service was abrupt and will be sticking with my better known restaurants moving forward.

I love the ambiance of the restaurant especially the outside. The feeling of sunday afternoon relaxed vibe is sooo calming. My family enjoyed the food and reminisce our Barcelona holiday. The staff were all accomodating and helpful. Will definitely go back!

Most enjoyable light tapas lunch on a Saturday. Staff were attentive, food was beautifully served and tasty; atmosphere/ noise was comfortable and heaters sufficient for a mid winters day.
Most enjoyable first experience, will return and recommend.

Lovely setting and very attentive pleasant staff. The food is very good and is well explained by the staff as in portion size and recommendations. BORN has the most extensive wine list I have ever seen and is well laid out for those of us who need a little help with choosing a good drop.

Went there for lunch. Happy with the Spanish ham selections in the menu; there are 6 options to choose from. We tried the Iberico Cebo and happy with our pick. The outstanding dish that we ordered is the Galician Octopus.

We went in happy hour which finishes at 5.30pm. At 5.20 we asked the waitress for some help with the wine menu. She said she would get another waiter to help us. He arrived at 5.31 and told us we were too late to purchase the wine in the happy hr. We were going to spend the evening there but instead we left and will never go back.

Delicious food, expertly served and matched. Outside on a nice day is where you want to be, however, the inside dining provides a good alternate option.

The staff were friendly & provided great service, I can't speak more highly of the service we received. The food selection is wide and every dish we ordered was excellent. The outside dining area was comfortable and lively. I will be returning again, hopefully soon.

Already recommended by a friend and I'll be returning to bring other friends. Really enjoyed the food, Duck Pate (along with the accompanied fruity 'bread' ) was the best I've tasted, as were the Croquettes. Staff very attentive and friendly and helpful... atmosphere and location perfect, sitting outside for lunch. Thank you!

We always enjoy BORN by Tapavino. Great location and food. It did feel on this occasion that we were rushed in and out to ensure they had the table for the second sitting. We were fully aware we had two hours and had no issue with that. I think they need to be a little mindful that people are paying a lot to eat there and the first sitting is as important as the second. Otherwise another very pleasant evening.
