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.

Very cool vibe, the place is designed like 50´s Diner which is right in the centre of Surrey Hills. The portions for the tapas are generous with some excellent Cold Cuts and great cocktails.

The food was mediocre and quite overpriced. Some of the staff weren't friendly and we had an uncomfortable time at Bodega. Wouldn't go back there again...

Three of us went on a Friday night with no reservation and the staff was super nice and got us in after a minimal wait. The food was excellent. Very interesting flavor combinations, really unique. The salt cod croquettes, squash salad and corn tamale were...More

We were so wonderfully surprised by the delicious food. Truly yummy! It is pricy especially the wine....but what spoiled the whole ambiance of this place and its experience was the over loud music. When you meet friends to chat and share news over a scrumptious...More

An amazing restaurant experience doesn't need my review - there are plenty of people out there willing to describe a great night. I chose Bodega to dine with a friend last week. She'd never had the chance to go before and was quite excited. Admittedly...More
