“A delightful Find”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We wandered into this restaurant, not knowing the area at all - and we were so glad we did. The food was fantastic, the waiter was helped us choose what to eat, as this was our first time in a Tapas restaurant. The staff were very friendly, and for just under 40 euros for 2 people including a bottle of wine, it was such good value. We ate at the 4 Cats (4 Gats) the following evening, and much preferred Set de Born.

“Perfect tapas bar”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Small old style tapas bar in a great area just off Leitana. Excellent quality wine and very good substantial tapas. Very friendly welcome but the place fills up quickly at weekends.

“Best tapas ever!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

The serrano ham and the manchego cheese were so good! Awesome place to order a few dishes and share them with your table.

“True tapas!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

I totally reccomend this restaurant. I live in Barcelona and I go often dinner, since I really like the atmosphere, the staff and specially, the food and wine quality. It is perfect for a couple or group of friends, but be sure you make a reservation before you go, the restaurant is not very big, and it's always full. It is located in one of the best areas of Barcelona, the Gotic Quartier. Rambla de Born is a one minute walk from Set de Born so you may find lots of pubs for after dinner!!
