I was visiting Sydney for a long-weekend and Bodega was the standout dining experience of my trip. We arrived just before 6:30pm on a Friday night and managed to get a table for 3 without a wait - brilliant. Firstly the service was fantastic. The staff were really helpful in recommending wines and advise on dishes for our party of... More

We (5 of us) dined at Bodega Tapas 3 weeks ago. The food was interesting and very tasty, and the wine we selected was perfect with the food we had selected. I also have to compliment the Manger on the service of both himself and his staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience.

Foolishly I didn't consult Trip Advisor before going to Bodega recently with three friends. The food combinations are creative or weird depending on your point of view but certainly designed to titillate your taste buds. Duck with scallops and chocolate sauce? Fish fingers, cuttlefish and charred toast? Tapas portions are meant to be small but at these prices we expected... More

The tapas here are delicious. The look and feel to this place is fun, with creative food to match. Flavours were awesome, loved the fish fingers and mussels! Yummo

We visited as a group of 5 friends on 8 February 2014. There were a large number of dishes to choose from - but as we were an odd number we opted for the chefs selection at $80 per head (there was a $65 option but we were hungry!) What followed was a delightful 13 courses of tapas - each... More

Loved the colourful surrounds, and latin influence. Great place to have good tapas. Attentive staff. We enjoyed the proscuitto, calamari, lamb neck etc etc, each dish better than the next. Well worth a visit if you love Tapas.

Food was fresh creative and tasty, service outstanding. 6 of us away on our staff party, so we had the set menu which I found to be perfect for our group. Plenty of food for all of us. Lamb neck & the fish fingers were a standout for me oh and also the balsamic meringue with the strawberry dessert. Also... More

Food creative, service excellent. I was surprised by the silky bbq tongue on a steamed milk bun and the strawberry parfait was out of this world. Great night

Service by two thoughtful young women -an English waiter found time to argue and split hairs with me when I politely asked if the'music'could be slightly lowered -And found time to TELL me the restaurant 'was not Spanish.' So the food I almost wanted to find the English waiter and tell him he was right -This place couldn't possibly be... More
