We both ordered from the set menu (too much as usual) to get a selection of tapas, meatballs, prawns mushrooms, patas bravas etc All dishes were to a very high standard and more than enough for everybody to try. Great attentive service. Would recommend this bar and restaurant to anybody jus get there early to avoid disappointment as you cannot... More

We've eaten here before and the food is great, but last time we were here we just went for late night drinks. The cocktail menu is great and they're really trendy and they're definitely pulling it off. It's always a nice bar to have a drink in, whether sat down or stood up depending how busy it is. Always got... More

A freezing January night had us looking for sanctuary and food in Bowness and we thought the best place to try (finally) was Bodega. There was a good Friday night buzz about the place and thankfully we were able to get a table as we hadn't booked . Service was prompt at first, then sadly after our food was brought... More

The Bodega bar is a great place but can get very busy because it is so good. This can mean that you wait a while at the bar to get served while they are making the cocktails that they also serve. Maybe a couple more bar staff would help. Worth a visit but beware it will get busy so best... More

My fiancé and I went to Bodega Tapas Bar for dinner for our anniversary! We loved every minutes of it! The gentleman who served us was a really kind and talkative Spanish guy who's name I didn't catch unfortunately. He took good care of us all night, very attentive and quick to serve us. We even spoke a few words... More

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
