We stumbled across this place having set our hearts on a tapas dinner. We got there at 6pm and there was a large queue but we waited 10 mins and we all got in ok. We were seated at the bar (directly opposite the door) which we were concerned about but it turned out to be a great place. We... More

Have been around to many tapas bars in Sydney and by a large margin this is the best I have been to. Please go and when you do make sure to order the beef cheek simply amazing one of the best dishes I have eaten.

This was my third time to bodegas. No bookings for under 6 people. You'll put your name on a waiting list or get there by 6pm for dinner. They have two sittings. Food is delicious. Service good. We got the degustation. Great selection of wine however very limited cocktail list

After reading through the cookbook and loving everything about it I travelled to Sydney to see if bodega was like the book conveyed. I was not disappointed. The dishes were all in the cookbook making it a bit tricky to decide what to have. Luckily we had a fabulous waitress who helped us with choices. My only disappointment was not... More

Really enjoyed from the starter to the dessert. Do order the Banana Split - its is not the american style associated with the name. Service... More

A very small, authentic menu. We took the last 2 available seats at the counter and enjoyed a delicious meal with wine.

Hubby has been a fan of proprietors Ben and Elvis for some time and is the proud owner of their recipe book - so when the opportunity to enjoy the fare at Bodega presented itself - it was a very quick decision! A great space - quirky, funky, fresh and welcoming. The service was fantastic and the food....well the food... More

The restaurant is located on a quiet street deep in Surry Hills. We were second to enter as the place opened at 6pm and we had a show to get to later on. It filled up quickly though and we did see a few couples get turned away. Service was fantastic - attentive and efficient. We ordered several dishes and... More
