I recommended Tapavino to friends for a girls night out.
I booked on line and was immediately advised that we had to vacate the table by 8.15pm. There was no indication when booking the reservation otherwise I would have booked elsewhere.
The service was non existent, some food items had sold out before 6.30pm!
I’ve previously enjoyed the original Tapavino restaurant in the CBD but sadly won’t be visiting Born at Barangaroo again .
A very enjoyable dining experience. Service was excellent. The sommelier was very knowledgeable about Spanish cava. The food was excellent as well. The savory churros were a great idea. My compliments to the chef.
This was my 2nd visit with guests who had not been before. Unfortunately one of our guests being gluten free found the whole experience a bit overwhelming. Firstly, a beer on your menu noted as gluten free - was not labelled so on the bottle and did include barley. Secondly, we did need to ask our waiter several times which meals were gf or not - wouldn't it be simpler to print this on the menu? Please understand as a non gluten free diner I will be back but the pain of our guest having to ask several times re gf - was painful for all including our waiter. Bless him for his patience.
A bit of a disappointment. In fairness the wine and food was v good - apart the burrata that was a little bland - but the service wasn't really up to scratch. It was busy that may have played a part but we just didn't get friendly service. Not really the tapas vibe at all. Shame its got the potential to be great.
Only negative S the outside area is very tight/narrow and we had four men around a table which was cramped.
Great selection and spectacular taste, with attentive and really friendly staff. This is one of those places you identify as one of your all time favorites!!
Had people up from Melbourne we all had a wonderful night thoroughly enjoyed it
Great place to meet with friends. Amazing tapas
The food is incredible and very reasonably priced considering the quality of the food and the setting of the restaurant in the middle of the trendy new Barangaroo area. I've been here twice now for date nights with my boyfriend and we are always blown away with the experience all round. We would highly recommend this for a special date night for two or a celebration with a small group of friends. Expect to enjoy a wide range of delicious Spanish style meats, seafood and tapas over delicious wines!
Born by Tapavino is excellent - relaxing environment, great help with the wine and food suggestions and no one making us feel like we had to leave after a VERY long lunch!
