Great food, We sat outside in very windy and cold weather and the heaters and shutters did a treat to keep us warm. Excellent drinks menu - apertifs, beer and wine

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.

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.

I visit Sydney from Melbourne each long weekend in June and since trying born by tapavino the first time always book to include the restaurant in my schedule. I love the modern twist on traditional Spanish food and always find many dishes of interest. This year my experience was even better due to the fact you now have an excellent sommelier Cecile. His suggestions and service were first rate. He is a great addition to your staff. Thank you. I will be booking next year on my return. Pamela Turner

The staff were rude and hurrying. It was like they didn’t want us there.
We went to enjoy happy hour and were told we couldn’t order another drink while our glass was still on the table from the current drink.
Then when they wanted us to leave they were like you have 10minutes left before the next booking. And we still had a glass of wine each.
Very disappointing.

It's our responsibility of serving alcohol, because what’s stopping someone ordering 5 drinks 2mins before it ends. Therefore, we serve the next drink only after you’ve finished your current drink. We finish happy hour at 5.30pm because the restaurant is booked at 6pm, that is why you were informed 10mins before the table is required, it needs to be cleaned & reset before the booking arrives. You're more than welcomed to finish your drinks at the bar, like most other people do. Regards,Frank

Was nice enough food. Not as good as tapas vino in the city though. Too busy. Hard to get a waiters attention. The business took away from the location really.
