“Great atmosphere, yummy tapas, great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

This place serves simple tapas in an atmospheric packed restaurant.

It offers fantastic value considering the quality of both the tapas and wine.

I probably wouldn't go here as a couple as it's quite cosy and can get quite noisy.

“lovely atmosphere, good food and wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

only a few tables,a cozy atmosphere. we could get a table for 2 right away but arrived after 10.45 pm. food was very good, variated with attention to catalan specialties. seems that locals also do appreciate the place for food and wines quality.staff was friendly and did not treat us as "another tourist couple", which i did appreciate a lot. formally it is xarcuteria, so you will find ham, sausages and the like, along with cheese, but they also serve tapas. patatas alioli and la bomba catalana were great.

Nice area, was getting a bit busy before we left and seemed mainly locals coming in. The food was great though. Staff very friendly and helped us as much as possible with ordering tapas. Would definitely reccomend.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We walked in Set de born and to be honest it didnt feel very welcoming but due to the fact that there were a lot of locals in there we decided to give it a go. The menu was a bit limited and the waiter was a bit flat but to be fair it was very late (23:00sh) .. The food was not bad but nothing that I would go out there and recommend. I am pretty sure you can find many better tapas places (Tapeo is one) around the corner
