This place is perfect for a great night out, no matter what the occasion or company - food is just delicious, wine list is very reasonable, service is excellent and atmosphere is so fun. I love to go to this restaurant and am always satisfied with my meals and the all round experience. My only issue is that they don't... More

So first I guess I should know that Tapas go with wine - but as a hardcore beer drinking I was a little taken back by the no beer situation - when I finally came to grips I set my sights on the tapas and I'm glad I did. I tried their chicken special and then four other tapas to... More

I have eaten here a number of times and the food is always perfect, as is the service. While I don't drink wine myself my friends have all said they have a lovely selection. The chocolate fondant is a lesson in sheer decadence!

Four of us visited Bodega last Saturday night and very much enjoyed the warm atmosphere, strong service and decent food. A couple of the tapas may be marginally overpriced...but the taste was authentic and our guests had no complaints. We tried two bottles of red, an organic Malbec and a Shiraz (I think) called Elephante. Desserts were very tasty and... More

Came here to have dinner with my friend on a weekday. We didn't reserve a table in advance, but were able to get one with only a 5 min wait. The place was pretty packed for a Thursday evening. The staff were professional, the food was really really tasty and the prices were appropriate for the restaurant. I am impressed!... More

Was there a few weeks ago with my wife. It's a nice lively spot , nice décor and great atmosphere. We had a number of dishes which were all really good - special mention for the chicken wings and lambs kidneys which were fabulous. Cheese board to finish was excellent. Nice wine also. Looking forward to my next visit.

This place is great. What a variety of dishes, flavours and tastes. Two standout dishes....the Lambs Kidneys in Sherry etc and also the Anchovy dish was amazing. They were so unlike the awful tinned salty ones. Friends of ours were there the previous week too and loved it too. We will be back very soon! Oh and quite a few... More

Tasty food, but prices don't match the size/quality. Great atmosphere, make sure to book if you want a table, it was busy when we arrived and equally as busy when we left. Okay selection of wines, pity they don't do any spanish beers. Staff are effected when busy, our wine was forgotten about twice and had to slow down on... More
