BORN by Tapavino
This has to be the best tapas in Sydney.
It has quite a cosy layout, but that does not mean it is too noisy, the food is excellent and there was lots of help with the wine list which is very comprehensive, but a little daunting if you don't understand Spanish wines.
Excellent food, great wines and top service. We loved it!
Really delicious food, great service and an extensive and interesting wine list. This is one of my favourite restaurants in Sydney, especially for a Sunday lunch. Highly recommended.
We had an amazing natural wine and our waitress was great . Very natural and willing to have a giggle with us
Although the menu can be overwhelming, the waiter was more than happy to suggest a number of dishes and explain what they were. Location and value for money were outstanding
Always get amazing service with a smile, the food and wine list are exceptional. Would highly recommend Born Tapavino without hesitation.
Food here is excellent, the vibe of the place is great and it is one of my most favourite places to eat out!! Service this time around was very slow, didn't feel well enough staffed for a Saturday night, and not the friendliest we've had, a little young perhaps.
Not a great experience given the competition nearby. Rushed us out the door. Food was adequate, service, nothing to rave about.
Really nice spot for Saturday lunch. Some creative tapas dishes. Flavours were excellent.
I’ve had many very enjoyable meals meals at Born but was underwhelmed on this last occasion.
Nothing was bad but nothing was particularly worthy of praise. It was in short ordinary ,ho hum even and that’s never been my experience before at Born, which I have unreservedly recommended to one and all.
Maybe it was just a busy Friday but given the prices and what Born usually achieves,it was a disappointing experience.
I’ll try again in the new year when I get back from Europe ,by which time I hope it’s back in top form.
We had an amazing dinner, staff were so helpful from suggesting dishes & picking a delicious wine to match. 100% highly recommend trying their tapas menu it won’t disappoint. Special Thank you to Valentina she made our night extra special
I found the food to be delicous, the serve excellent and the location was wonderful for a sunny lunch.
The French Somm was excellent. Her wine choices were well priced (great value)
Our waitress was absolutely superb. I'm gutted I did not get her name, but she is an absolute asset to your restaurant. So attentive and patient with us.
The food and wine were sensational.
No better place to take interstate guests for a Saturday afternoon lunch than Barangaroo hence as we had not eaten here for some time the return did not disappoint & the improvement from the early days was evident early on.
However when you have staff like Eliana with her vibrant & friendly attitude nothing is a worry and things go very smoothly.
All the dishes we had were very tasty including the Beef Cecina, Octopus & Bunuelo Donuts, together with the Vierlas SHR & Particular Chardonnay—all four of us were very happy and look forward to coming back soon—Thank You!
Tasty food but not a lot of it for the price. Waitress topped the wine very quickly so you had to purchase more. Felt very cynical and the aim was to squeeze every dollar out of you. Recommended very expensive wines without any discussion of price. Doubt I will return.
Great location & good vibe by the water at Barangaroo. The waitress was really helpful with the menu & spot on in her recommendations. There is a huge choice on the menu & it seems like everything is good!
Really good experience and thoroughly enjoyed the food and service.
Really nice food and lovely staff. Beautiful and relaxed location. Shame its a bit pricey
Food was delicious, great setting, good service, overall a fantastic restaurant!
Service was great. The noise level was too high - perhaps more soft furnishings and fewer hard surfaces could absorb some of the noise.
Food was average at best. I had the pork and it was very tough and dry. It’s a real shame as my previous visits have been most enjoyable. I won’t be back in the near future.
I wish I got the ladies name who served us. Best service I’ve had in years! Lovely food but the service just made it
Always love going to Balcon but we decided on similar food but a change of scenery, everything was fabulous from beginning to end & we also tried different things on the menu, made a nice change. Look forward to our next visit
Prices are expensive just for everyday dining. We visit Born for our special occasions. Staff is multinational, professional, friendly. The ham is superb. The Barangaroo area is exceptional. Our birthday celebrant was very pleased. TY.
Love Born - family favourite :)
Staff were quite rude, quite snobby and not helpful with the menu at all. Place was noisy and seats were too close together. Food was the only decent thing
Lovely to visit their Barangaroo location as it was a great atmosphere and stunning views. Happy staff were nice enough to fit us in outside as the weather was so great. Great value meal and we were so full ! Only negative was they asked us to order more bread to go with a dish, but not sure why when 2 serves came with our other dishes, so was unnecessary. We will be back!
We booked a table for 5 on Tuesday evening. We were squeezed in a table for 4 people and 5th person has to sit at the corner. Most disappointing thing was that the restaurant was not full and I asked the waiter politely if there is a better way of arranging a table for 5 of us. The answer I got back was "no, not really".
That was our 3rd time to BORN in the last 18 months. We will never go there again and would never recommend to any of our friends.
On occasions what may seem like there is an ability to move tables isn't always as simple as that. I'm not sure where you were sitting, but the restaurant was booked out except for a few tables down the middle & the bar. Inside two tables no-showed. If they were available I'm sure we would have moved you, but it seems in this case the waiter didn't pass on the message. I would certainly like you to make another visit & hope that the two previous occasions will make up for your recent experience
We asked one of the waiters to recommend dishes for the 4 of us, and he did a wonderful job.
It was very helpful as the menu offered so many delicious options. We enjoy the opportunity to try a variety of dishes, and the size of the servings were perfect for this. We will return.
Definitely one of my favorite places to go for Spanish food. Will probably go back again!
i can find better service elsewhere, food was good though
I ordered 5 dishes only 3 turned up after an hour and 15 minutes. The tables around me all received the two dishes that i was waiting for. Very disappointed as i have been here a number of times and it is usually really good. I was taking a friend there for the first time and i had talked you up so much, but you let me down.
Hi David, What we normally do is put your order through, place half the items on hold, replace your dishes, re-set and call away the next food items. We do this because the first couple of dishes are tapas or entrees followed by mains & sides. It seems that the waiter might have forgotten to call it away or he was waiting for you to finish the first dishes. However, it shouldn't have taken that long. If you do come back, just let the waiter know not to put your food on hold. Regards, Frank
Great food and excellent service right on the waterside in Barangaroo. Not the cheapest Spanish fare around but good for a special meal.
Great Service and we enjoyed the food and drinks.
Lovely evening, good food, polite waiters and just a nice overall experience. Will definitely come back!
Delicious tapas and spectacular service
I love this restaurant, great position, ambience and very good helpful staff. Food is delicious and serving sizes reasonable. Amazing list of Spanish wines. I look forward to going back!
Great food - great service. Definitely heading back again soon.
Always happy with the food and service and hope to try the new venue soon
Great experience. Fantastic Beef Cheeks - made the experience a worth one to reccomend
Consistently so good!! I have been here a number of times and never had a bad meal. Great deal for September.
