We thought this was a great Tapas Bar. The food was great and good size portions. The service even on a busy bank holiday was great. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone

This is a great bar and the only one I've come across like it in the lakes. Its lively and feels a bit more like a club scene with music and double bar area. Its what I call almost a club, its probably the best you will get if your looking for a night out in Bowness. I really like... More

We found this little gem and went back the following night. It had a brilliant atmosphere and even though we had to wait 45 min for a table the first night we had a great time waiting in the bar downstairs. Good food and well priced. Thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend. Try the ribs!

The food was delicious and the service was excellent even though it was a busy bank holiday weekend. Good value for money. 25 pounds each for 4 tapas dishes and 2 drinks. Good choice of beer on draft, especially the Spanish beers. Very authentic.

We decided to try this Restuarant with a bit of unease as the tapas bars and restaurants we have tried in England have fallen far short of the standard in Spain. This one is on par with the Spanish ones. The food was great, the drinks were good and the staff were outstanding. I think, but not sure that this... More

This is certainly no authentic Spanish Tapas Bar as it's let down terribly by the food. We ordered 5 dishes of assorted vegetarian tapas and they were all well below standard. The tomato sauce on the Patatas Bravas was obviously from a jar and was terrible. Overall, a very disappointing experience.

Visited at lunch time, only appeared to be one table ordering before us, even so took 45 mins for food to turn up, we were not advised of this when ordering, asked waitress to chase after 30 mins to be told kitchen apologies but it will be another 10 mins that turned into 15. Food nothing special, squid appeared frozen... More

We always come to the bodega bar every time we come on holiday to bowness. We ended up 7 days in a row for a couple of drinks and had tapas twice. The tapas was lovely and there is a wide selection of beers and the cocktails are amazing. Can't wait till the next time we go back.
