BORN by Tapavino
We just love Born at Tapavino. Our starters were the jamon croquettes, jamon topped with manchego and spicey eggplant along with negronis and sangria. All delicious and very flavoursome. Our mains were the octopus and chicken with almonds. So tasty. The service and food was top quality. We love returning to this wonderful restaurant for the ambience and whole dining experience.
Lovely food - even if sharing plates is not your thing - but gets very hectic on weekends.
Food was excellent and service was quick
Food portions are bit small
The setting was lovely and the food was enjoyed however the service put a dampener on the whole evening and was very different to what i have experienced before at BORN. We were constantly being reminded that the kitchen closed early on Sundays and we needed to be offsite by 10pm. We felt rushed and that we were holding up the the waiters finishing time. We were seated at 7.30 which is reasonably early, i don't think it was necessary to be so time conscious as soon as we arrived. Plus when we asked for menu advice it seemed far to much hard work. Quite disappointing, i would recommend to a friend based on previous experiences, not this one.
Hi Zoe, All the venues along Barangaroo have strict times because of the residents above us. You might have or not have noticed every venue at 10pm would have been empty. The same during the week, however, 11pm is the curfew. We only do this is make sure guests are aware of the rules we operate under, instead of being told at 10pm without notice that you have to leave. I hope this reply clarifies the reasons. Regards, Frank
Our waiter was so helpful with food and wine recommendations. Best service we’ve had in a while! The food was outstanding! Compliments to the Chef! And a wonderful location. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it. Do yourself a favor !!
The service was terrible waitress had spilled our cocktail and then didn’t even clean the mess that she had made
Always Love this place; amazing food, wine list & service
We ordered the Set Menu, and even if we didn't know what tapas the menu would include, all the food was amazing and we enjoyed.
The only suggestion would be to have a sangria Jug available for the set menu.
My partner and I have been there a couple of times, tapavino never disappoints.
Will definitely be back.
Looking forward to our next dinner.
Great food and one of the best service ever. For sure I’ll be back
Always enjoy this venue. Always made to feel welcomed and comfortable, and never neglected.
The food was great, though the chorizo slider was on a bun that was a bit too big, but it was tasty. Loved the duck pate and mussels.
Sommelier service was outstanding and we were delighted with the choices made for us.
We had a fantastic time at tapa vino. Fab food, service and atmosphere.
I took my bestfriend to born Tapenvino for her Birthday. The service was terrible. We found a hair in the salad. We politely told the waitress who took the salad away. The waitress then came back and said abruptly to my blonde mother that no one in the kitchen has blonde hair. The salad was no where near my mum. It felt like we were being blamed. The hair was wrapped around the salad so there was no way one of us could have done that. After we paid we realised that they had then added two dishes from the table next to us onto our bill. It was refunded but there was no apology made for either situation. From a customer service standpoint it was not dealt with properly.
One of the most enjoyable tapas meals I've had! Great selection of dishes, really tasty and great advice from staff re number of dishes, etc. The wine waiter was amazing with his knowledge of the wine menu and how they might compare to a local style wine - all of the wines we had were lovely!
Even though I had booked, we were seated in the passage way which was a little disappointing. Food was excellent - I could have eaten the cabbage salad all day. That said, the quantities were a little all over the place. The eggplant tapas for one was actually more than enough for two and the kingfish main course was pretty small, for the price. Service was excellent - the waitress noticed that we had been given still instead of the sparkling water we ordered and replaced it really quickly with no hassle. I will definitely dine again but ask particularly for a different table.
Excellent food and variety. But felt we were persuaded to order too much.
Recommend to order as you go. Otherwise excellent spanish food with lots of seafood and vegetarian options.
Food is great, but the menu was hard to understand and service was very poor
Food was amazing, service can be a improved a bit but overall ok.
The food was delicious and the service was impeccable.
Our waitress went above and beyond to ensure all allergies were carefully considered and we had a great time out on a special occasion!
Loved the food, healthy options , quality ingredients, great choice of wine and I love the fact that it was Spanish Spanish Spanish, viva Espana
Fantastic food and service, friday night for dinner extremely loud. Would probably try and do a lunch time in the hope that it was quieter.
Every.single.dish was incredible!
This is my third visit and each and every dish blows my mind.
I think your set menus are really good value.
Looking at the particular dishes we order and the size of them, this meal felt a tad expensive.... but I’ll be back none-the-less.
Excellent service dealing with my extreme allergy and also dealing really well with an issue about a wine. Very professional and hospitable! Oh and food to die for!
Very well presented, very yummy food, will recommend it to friends and family.
Great Service and food! The honeycomb and melted cheese was my fav!
Perfect food; amazing wines! Totally recommend it. Great place also for corporate gathering.
We enjoyed our meal immensely. We ordered jamon on bread for starters,scotch egg, beef cheeks and coleslaw salad. Everything was full of flavour and portion size decent. The Service was great, and the waiter very accommodating . We will be back!
Great food, service and atmosphere.
Always consistent and will definitely recommend.
Every dish is excellent and the wine list is extensive. most wine can be ordered by the glass, 250ml, 500ml or litre carafe or by the bottle which makes for a great opportunity to try many.
Food and drinks was fantastic, the waiter was very attentive even though it was busy. Great location.
Awesome restaurant. Amazing food and drinks
Love the outside dining
The place was very busy and we had a nice table, the lady that looked after us was very informative regarding the food the sommelier recommended exceptional white wine and the white sangria was very good as well.
As to the food the grilled artichoke,jamon with cows milk and baked figs where very good.
But Galician octopus I had to look for it to find it ,the beef tartare the the quality of the meat was very good but the mixture of the sauce was by far too overpowering to balance the quality of the meat.
I hope that my opinion will find a sympathetic ear and yes I will visit again to see if there are some Improvements.
Service was excellent attentive without being in your face. Food was tasty the mussels were delicious, it’s expensive but we had a lovely meal and felt it was worth it.
service was amazing and staff were able to recommend dishes. very enjoyable experience.
the waitress who served us was impatient & impolite.
We have been to Born at Barangaroo several times now and always enjoyed the food and the ambience. However on this visit we found our waitress to be abrupt, not terribly friendly and she kept trying to hurry us even as we had just been seated asking for our order without us having sighted the menu. She continually hurried us all night. We were fully aware of our 2 hour sitting and were well within this time when we did leave. We also felt for a fine dining restaurant such as Born, she was inappropriately dressed in an extremely short skirt which looked cheap and tacky. I have never commented on the way someone was dressed before but this did look very out of place considering the quality of this restaurant.
We will still visit Born in the future but fingers crossed we don’t get her again!!!!
In overall we really appreciated the environment, the food and the cocktails but the waitress was quite pushy and kept coming over every 2 minutes...
Service was very good with attentive and very friendly waitresses. The food was very well presented and extremely tasty.
Reliably good! Always happy to return. No hesitation to recommend. Not sure I'd want an inside table though - the restaurant definitely enjoyed more on a terrace table.
