At LA Bodega you will find menu's to accommodate all occasions. An extensive a la carte menu displaying a fantastic array of fish, meat and chicken cooked in a variety of sauces is available. In addition to this there is also a selection of vegetarian dishes. For the more traditionalists why not try our two/three course Sunday Roast lunch menu from £9.95.

Really friendly and welcoming staff and food was amazing. Only wish I didn't have a starter now as with all the inclusive sides (chips and veg) I couldn't finish it... More

I really enjoyed my visit to La Bodega, and would certainly recommend it. There is a wonderful variety of Tapas - we had Cheese, Patata Bravas and to finish an excellent Creme Brulee. Beer and wine are excellent value and I'm glad we made an stop. Merthyr is overrun with franchises at the moment, so it was nice to find... More

This place was recommended to us. From the outside it looks like a wagon stop and the food is far from the theme they try and present.
