Nooooooooooo!! Bodega! What's going on?! :( Sad. Face. We visited you in November 2015 and LOVED you! Like, if you were a person, I'd definitely have creeped on you on Instagram or FB & maybe followed you & got chatting....maybe we'd meet up for a drink.... But this time it just wasn't as good, I'm heart broken! 15 months I... More

A lovely welcoming bar with a real fire in the main bar - very cosy on a cold winter night! Drinks choice very good and offers a lovely tapas menu. We had a meal in the restaurant upstairs and again the choice was great and food very good. The waitress was helpful and provided suggestions when we were trying to... More

The best tapas bar outside of Spain,the staff are all Spanish and run a tight ship, the food,wine and atmosphere all add to a great romantic evening out. Will definitely be back 👍🏻

Words cannot describe how good this place is. We have paid several visits previously, but as we were staying in Bowness for slightly longer than usual stay we made it our second home. A short walk from our hotel meant that visits were frequent. The staff are amazing. The tapas was amazing and the atmosphere is superb. The choice of... More

Staff recommended 3 to 4 dishes each, but as me and my partner have huge appetites we ordered more! Each dish was excellent, and appeared hot and freshly prepared. Lovely atmosphere in the heart of Bowness.

We ordered a Bodega Special and a couple of drinks, my friend then went and ordered another 9 lots of tapas, far too much food but it tasted fine in the main but the Prawns and Calamari was a little over cooked......not five star but perfectly acceptable and a relaxed environment.

A huge array of small plates to choose from at this eatery - I counted 51 on the menu. Anyone who enjoys the tapas style of eating, in particular Spanish food, will find plenty they will enjoy on the menu. Good selection of drinks at the bar and a lovely atmosphere. There were lots queuing for a table so I'm... More

Had a tapas for two here. The food was pretty good. The service was excellent and the soft drinks were reasonably priced. My only gripe for a Spanish restaurant was the olives. They were not quality olives and the liquid they were in didn't help. That said I would still go back. It has a nice ambience. We ate in... More
