Many of my friends and family have been to Bodega and really enjoyed it but until yesterday I hadn't. I wish I hadn't waited so long. It has a reputation of being difficult to get in without a booking but our party (3 of us) chanced our arm and thanks to a no show and a very helpful maitre d we managed to secure a table with only a 10 minute wait. I suspect we were lucky.
In short, the food was well presented and tasted very good (as you'd hope!), the service was excellent, and the bill was what you'd expect in this part of town/this type of restaurant. We shared two starters which was fine. I felt that the size of two of main course meals was a tad disappointing - too small. The third was fine (generous in fact).
So, we'd go again and I'd recommend it.

Hello Smashie11,

Thank you for taking a chance on getting a table - fab to hear you enjoyed your visit and lived up to your friend's praise!
As you've not stated which dishes you had it's hard to comment re the portion size, but next time just ask your server for some advise and they can guide you over the size of the dishes depending on your hunger levels!

See you soon,
Vicky

We were very excited at prospect of being able to order in as due to illness couldn’t go out.
Website advertises Deliveroo and yet when click on it, they are not accepting deliveries !!!
Either sort website out or get linked with Deliveroo as poor advertising !!

Literally the best nachos I've ever had. If you eat here and don't have the nachos, what a fool! The service and beer were good too.
