Further Information

Spain is one of the favoured destinations of Brits abroad, so it’s unsurprising that the good folk of Birmingham have developed a taste for tapas on their travels. Catering to this need are Alfonso and Emma, seasoned servers of Spanish specialities to the UK market, who met 10 years ago whilst working in a Birmingham restaurant and dreamt of opening an eatery all of their own. A decade down the line and the dream is a reality, in the form of El Borracho de Oro on Edgbaston’s Harborne Road, where they deliver down-to-earth Iberian dishes in a modern, elegant setting.

The food served up at Edgbaston’s El Borracho de Oro is a far cry from the egg & chips and Les Cadburys Fingres that the punters of Birmingham might have enjoyed on the beaches of Benidorm. The flavours on offer are a fiesta of traditional tapas. Patatas bravas, croquetas and chorizos feature of course, but also lesser-sighted – at least in the Spanish restaurants of the UK – platas such as albondigas, calamares and huge gambas (prawns) are present as well. El Borracho de Oro is more than just tapas though, with paellas and other main dishes available, as well as a huge – 60 bins! – wine selection and a range of Spanish beers and ciders on draught and in bottles. After all, El Borracho de Oro means one who gets drunk on fine liquors, so book a table now and, just maybe, a taxi home for afterwards.

Everything was fantastic - food, drinks, atmosphere and service. The five of us had a fabulous afternoon birthday lunch for my friend and we can't wait to return!

A lovely tapas restaurant that was relatively quiet on arrival but a few more diners arrived whilst we were there. Very friendly & attentive waiters. Food was delicious although we had ordered from the Tues special menu so found the portioned quite small in comparison to food that was ordered by other diners from the main menu from what we could see... Dessert was the only thing that let it down really, churros with a thick hot choc dipping pot, not very thick and the churros were far too crispy... Other than that a great evening...

Restaurant is set in a nice location in Edgbaston. Attention to detail at the restaurant is excellent from the welcoming upon arrival and especially to the food, the chef even came out to let us know about the specials available. The majority of the staff were Spanish speaking which impressed not only us but our Spanish friends who we visited restaurant with. All in all was a very enjoyable evening with great food and great wine, would highly recommend.

Excellent meal and atmosphere - very authentic feel - we unfortunately arrived late however his was not a problem to the restaurant and at no time did we feel rushed - food and wine was excellent and service was very good with staff very knowledgeable about the dishes and able to meet dietary requirements also. Probably one of the best Tapas we have had outside of Spain - would definitely recommend and return.

Amazing food and brilliant attentive service. The chef came over a couple of times to talk about his menu and made recommendations (beef cheeks, pork belly with beans and the pork ribs are not to be missed). The wine was great again with knowledgeable staff and the whole place has a lovely ambiance. Our 4th visit and it keeps getting better.

We received a friendly, warm welcome on arrival & were offered a choice of table. Good ambience from a modern rustic interior. There was a good choice of food which was well presented; cooked excellently & very satisfying. We enjoyed the whole experience so much we arranged a return visit at the end of our evening. *****

El Borracho de Oro offers lovely food, a good range of drinks and a good atmosphere. We would visit here again for a quiet meal or a night out with friends.
