mist dishes are great but the Peepers and eggplant dishes were great and I normally eat meat.

Great location for lunch by the harbour. We had an outside, undercover table that was just perfect. The food was delicious and we appreciated the chef's flexibility to make us a dish that wasn't on the main menu. Our sommelier - Ama, was incredibly knowledgeable and a great help in choosing the wines. Definitely coming back.

Great food. it was very busy and a good vibe. It felt as thought we were being rushed though and they wanted us out.

We’ve been meaning to capitalise on the happy hour specials and finally we had the chance. The food was tasty and decent portion sizing, drink was great, service was attentive and venue was lovely - absolutely no reason not to return!

Rosie looked after us and she was amazing! I made a note that is was my friends bday in the booking comments and they were so friendly upon arrival and acknowledged her straight away. All of the staff that touched our table were very helpful although Rosie had our whole meal planned out from start to finish including matching wines by the glass for us. It really was a special evening.

We have dined there several times over the past two years.
The staff are friendly, and one of the managers, Ilaria, is on point, and goes above and beyond. They have great wines, and the food never disappoints.
Menu changes keep it interesting. Highly recommend.

We have been going to Tapa Vino and then Born and also Balcon since Tapa Vino opened next to the Marriott Hotel several years ago. We took our staff there for lunch on Friday and were blown away by the food. Whilst it has always been good, it really was outstanding. They have reviewed the menu and may even have a new chef? Either way, top notch and can't wait to go there again.

The food is superb along with the service. Couldn't fault our waitress and the setting who wouldn't love the position of this restaurant.
If you're a wine lover the selection is amazing.

What a brilliant experience. The restaurant was full (unlike all the theta). The food, service and wine presentation was all outstanding. The coding system they use for wine classification is brilliant. I am so coming back

The food was delicious, full of flavour the waitress was lovely as it was our first time she helped recommend what to order so we could taste a-little of everything. A little disappointed with the red sangria though just tasted like red cordial. The mango chilli cocktail was a surprise just the right amount of heat!!! Would definitely go again

A new Dining adventure, as. I had dined at the original Bar Tapavino in Barcelona.
Sydney’s version does not quite live up to the Barcelona one but it is a nice experience.
The Food is very good and the Service very friendly and attentive.
Barangaroo has developed into a trendy and full of live area. Worth a visit for sure!

I especially love the prawn from the set menu. The braised beef need more flavour but everything else from the set menu was to die for. I would highly recommend the set menu for a nice night out

Had a lovely dinner out with a few friends here. We left our selection up to our waiter and he did not disappoint. The warm cow’s milk cheese wrapped in jamón serrano with truffled honeycomb and the octopus with kipfler potatoes were both stand outs! The apperol spritz's were also very tasty! ;-) Would definitely go again.

I had the chorizo and butter zucchini and it was delicious, my husband opted for the hanger steak which was good, although very rare, despite that fact he'd asked for medium. Service was excellent, really attentive without being fawning or over the top. Lovely French rose too, altogether a lovely experience with the nice view out towards the trees bathed in blue light and the water.
