About the restaurant
Located right on the edge of Sydney Harbour with the Opera House just beyond your fingertips…it doesn’t get any more Sydney than The Dining Room.

Our produce-driven menu is paired back, sustainable and unmistakably Australian, and shares center stage with unrivalled harbour views. Relaxed and elegant, enjoy the freshest of
seafood, seasonal Australian ingredients, and a selection of fine wines and locally crafted beers and spirits.

Lunch and dinner reservations are highly recommended. Our popular window tables are available at a surcharge when booking and subject to availability. Dress code is smart casual.

We dined there previously with old menu that were full of vegetarian dishes. Most of them have been removed from the current menu, however the chef and service staffs were going above and beyond to accommodate our requests and made it such a pleasant night for us. We highly recommend to everyone!

About the restaurant
BóRN is the 3rd venue in the Tapavino stable and takes its cue from the tapas bars & restaurants in & around El Born, Barcelona. Located on the waterfront in Barangaroo, We take inspiration from the Spanish classics but with a modern twist.
Our endless pages of over 300 Spanish wines and 80 Sherries is an important component of our obsession of all things Spanish, and this reflects in our dedication of bringing the most exciting boutique and artisan wines from around Spain to the Australian Market.

It was one of the best dinner experience, right from seating experience to food and drinks suggestions, to service! Booked in advance, we were quickly shown to our table. The wait staff were super attentive and had plenty of great suggestions right from the starters, mains, wine and drink pairing with the food. Not sure I will be able to name all the authentic Spanish dish names, but the pictures should do the job. Overall loved the food and the different variety of Spanish beers! Definitely recommend if you want an authentic Spanish experience which is more than just tapas!
