We found this bar courtesy of TripAdvisor and it was so good, we ended up there twice. The decor and atmosphere are perfect for enjoying some excellent tapas. The staff were excellent too, they even helped us to direct our taxi man on the phone....More

The only issue with dining at El Born is how to choose from the many delectable dishes. We had the salty fish cakes, filet Mignon with broccoli sauce and avocado and tuna salad. All were superb, with generous servings. Our hopes for enjoying main course...More

The tapas coming to the table by the waiters is a new twist on a the Brazilian steakhouse concept with meat coming to the table. The bartender, Aragon, made me some delicious bespoke cocktails with gin. The avocado & tuna dish was excellent and the...More

Great staff, chilled vibe and the food is amazing. Best place I ate in rio for sure. Drinks are a tiny bit pricey but I found the food to be quite good value, especially for its quality. Definitely go here if you like tapas

Stumbled upon El Born, and it certainly took me back to Barcelona! Service, ambiance, everything was fantastic. Great selection of tapas and drinks, both traditional and some local flare. The portions were very well-sized, and I couldn't put down my fork!
