Came up to Merthyr over the weekend to visit friends. Stayed in the travel lodge and had huge choice of resturants but found these on Google as wanted something different. 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

I was looking forward to tapas and some sangria but what I got was my mother very upset from the attitude of the staff. The food was ok and a few of the tapas dishes was nice but everything seemed dirty! There was cob webs everywhere the sangria jugs didn't pour so every time you wanted a drink you would... More

the restaurant is typical spanish basque and you should expect a certain style i.e rough & ready as with most spanish bars restuarants we have visited on our frequent trips to spain (about 4 times a year) the bodega is no different, all we can say is that we have yet to taste any food we have had in spain...

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.

We have been booking meals at this quaint little pub for the past 7 years and i have yet to have had a meal to disappoint. Don't be put off by the 'small bar area' and the... More

A little bit of Spanish in Dowlais, what a fantastic resturant, okay so it does need decorating but for the price they charge for meals its no wonder they wouldn't be able to afford redecoration! what amazing value for money! All the food is Authentic spanish traditional dishes (English too if you fancy) I recommend the Chicken Rossini, stunning. I... More
