Nice enough

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.

The tables are small and the chairs or stools are not that comfortable, but the food and wine are excellent. We have eaten here many times, enjoying the tapas and rioja.

We visited twice in a week! Once as a couple on a quiet Tuesday evening. The waitress was warm and friendly and took the time to advise on the right wine for the meal. The food was absolutely delicious and in true tapas style arrived quickly in a sporadic order. We left leaving having made reservations to return 4 days... More

Fancied some tapas do we popped in to Bodega. Only a limited number of lunch options but excellent food. Especially recommend the Albondigas in Goats Cheese and the Tortilla. Simple food done well. Nice Rioja as well.

We visited because we could not believe the bad reviews having visited the sister Solera. We found the same food quality, service and atmosphere, after all they share the same staff. The food selection is a bit less than the other restaurant, but you can see the menu displayed outside so you know what you are getting. You are warned... More
