Had a few entrees and mains; some food was plain tasteless, some swam in mayonnaise, and some overcooked (the salmon special was extremely dry and hard).

The food is excellent for sharing. The wine list is large and they are all Spanish. The selection by the waiter was very good

We shared dishes and were really happy with the variety and quality. The restaurant was also very accommodating for a member of our group who has special dietary requirements, and they modified some of the dishes so she had more options.

Had great meals here before, but sadly this was not one of them. Disappointing. Sorry, but you asked. I'll still probably return but a bit warily.

I celebrated my birthday lunch at BORN by Tapavino, and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience! My family had recommended this restaurant for my friends and I to go to, and I am so glad I took there word for it. Location is great! Right opposite the ferry wharf with a beautiful view! We ordered the lunch set menu, and found the food to be exceptional! In addition to this, the service was also lovely. The staff were kind and prompt, and were very much cultured! We also received 25% off our entire bill due to their monthly promotions which are great! Overall, such an enjoyable time, and can not wait to go back again!!!

One of my favourite restaurants in Sydney! I’m a regular customer and recommend to friends and family! The food never disappoints!

Service this time was extremely poor! We were originally told there was nothing but a desert special which ended up been wrong once we asked another waiter. We waited for an unacceptably amount of time for our food and wine recommendation from our waitress wasn’t great. We requested a recommendation for a dry Rosè and ended up with a sweet Rosè! Our waitress was either new and required training or was having a bad night (which happens to everyone) .

The food and atmosphere is always fantastic which is why I’ll continue to go back and recommend to friends!

The food here never disappoints, however the serving sizes seem to have shrunk over time which is very disappointing.

Beautiful food and the service was great. My only issue was our table was booked for 2 hours and 20 minutes before our time was up we were being asked to head to the bar to finish our drinks and dessert.

Took family including a visitor from London recently. All were impressed with the high quality of the food, the modern and creative style of the menu, the very good location and the very high quality of service. Sommelier Amadine is especially helpful and her wine recommendations are yet to disappoint.
All round, highly recommended.

Great meal and great service as usual. We had the Charcuteria plate, meatballs, beef cheeks, potatoes, Spanish doughnuts and chocolate tart. Everything was delicious.The wine list is very extensive and the waitstaff always happy to guide your choice.

Great long lunch with friend. Small tapas dishes, octopus and potato dish great other seafood dishes an finished with veal and beef cheeks dishes. Lots of help with the Spanish wines, very attentive but not intrusive service. On a hot day it was very pleasant along the Barangaroo waterfront.
Great place.

Our second visit as the first was amazing, Always a beautiful selection of dishes to try. Sangria is value for money on the drinks list but the sparkling selection lacking a little on the lower end price point. The prawns, scallops and the anchovies are simple but standout dishes as is my favourite the salmon tartar. The chairs were a little uncomfortable to be honest but looking forward to our next visit again soon when hopefully the kidneys are back on the menu as they are my brothers-in-law favourite. The waiter ( Little young guy glasses with possibly French accent who was looking after us on Sunday 29/12 around 3pm ) was fantastic looking after our happy hour drink prices 👏🏼 . See you again soon

It was Sunday night and clearly the staff wanted to go home so we got kicked out without even be able to finish our bottle of wine ! Very poor service

Responded on 26 December 2019

Hi Karine, No gets kicked out because staff want to go home. There are rules in place because of the residents that live above all the restaurants. We have to move patrons on at 10pm. I'm sure staff would have informed you before 10pm. All other nights are 11pm. The same rules apply for all the venues on the Barangaroo waterfront.

The food and drinks were served in a timely manner, service was attentive and unintrusive. Our waitress Gloria went above and beyond to make this experience all the more enjoyable.

The only flaw we found was being served oysters that weren’t in their prime and some cava that was corked but couldn’t be sent back because who tasted the wine did not identify the bottle as flawed.

Overall good atmosphere, delicious food, very nice sangria.

Will definitely be back.

Thank you Giorgia.

We had an inside table and the staff did the utmost to get us an outside table. Well done. The food we ordered was to die for, as I am sure the other items would be too. Superb.
