We visited La Bodega today, for the first time, trying to find somewhere to eat on a Sunday evening. The food was fantastic - much more traditional and earthy flavours than many high-street tapas bars in the UK. They also have a nice selection of wines. Service was good, but not exceptional, as the staff seemed keen to close for... More

First visit to this tapas bar. A small place, in need of a luck of paint. There were 8 of us and we were at the back placed outside the toilet in a conservatory setting. Not the best of surroundings. Place was busy, food reasonably priced and not too bad. Not a very extensive range but passable. Nowhere close to... More

Great tapas, friendly service - uncomfortable seats! Just round the corner from Komedia cinema. Will be back.

Popped in here for a midafternoon break and some light bites. The place was busy, the service wasn't the quickest but we wanted a relaxing break from shopping so that suited us. Our waitress was warm and welcoming, the food was excellent as was the wine. For four plates and two drinks the bill was (just) less than twenty quid.... More

Came in mid week for tapas and it was fine. Decent portion sizes and tasty. Nothing ground breaking but does what it says on the tin. The waitress was friendly and efficient.

I used to come to this lovely little tapas bar every week, but since Juan left over a year ago we havent been. I love tapas, and we where in a rush to go to the theare - so we thought we'd give it a whirl. Chaos! Despite the place being half empty, we where guided to a dirty table... More

Traditional laid back tapas, the food is excellent, the service is good (laid back and relaxed, not slow) and the ambience is just right if you want a quick in and out dinner this definitely isn't the place to go, if you wish to spend an hour or two having a drink and some good food then this is the...

My family and I ate here on a recent day trip to Brighton. We used to live in Spain and my mother said that it was the best tapas she has eaten outside of Spain. Fantastic selection and very good value for money. Décor is in the traditional Spanish tapas bar style. Will definitely recommend.
