Compared to my last visit a few months ago, I found the quality and detail on the food had gone down a bit. The portions are still the same size but it lacked flavour and punch especially the new items on the menu. Lucky though its easier to get a table if you rock up to the place at 6pm. I love the new plants in the rooms which really freshened the place up and the staff are always friendly and nice!
The staff did however cause us to over order which was annoying as I couldn't eat my fav dessert the donut and ice cream! :S Instead I would rather the staff tells us to order maybe 4 dishes instead of 6 dishes and see how we go.....

Atmosphere of Bodega was quaint and very much like a beach house cafe. The pace of the food was fantastic, nothing disappointed at all! We ordered an entree and a main each a couple of drinks as well. The highlight of the night was the dark and stormy drink which tasted like a spiced adult lemonade!

Bodega is a great place for couples and smal groups. Took my wife there for her birthday, and we had a great experience. From the food, wine to the friendly and always smiling staff. They brightened the atmosphere in a slightly dimmed restaurant. Highly recommend!

Not sure why people like this restaurant. The fish was nice but very over powering smell. The rest of the food was average. 4 girls served us and 3 were really rude and snooty. Highly not recommended.

It was a pleasant night. Thought the music was going to be too loud but it was turned down which made it easy for us to talk to each other. The place itself is cosy.

We shared a number of dishes - started with the fish fingers, crispy duck, wagyu beef and the chargrilled calamari before finishing off with the pina colada trifle.

Each dish was different but tasted fresh and innovative. Servings were average but was tasty.

Cost was $45 pp minus drinks.

Definitely worth checking out but maybe during the weekday when it's not as crowded.
