3 of us visited for dinner. They don't take reservations so there can be a wait as it is very popular. The menu is quite small however the food is delicious. The seating is cramped and the restaurant very noisy, we could hardly understand each other. The service was great and friendly. Only mishap... read more

If you haven't been here before prepare to have your tastebuds taken on an adventure. Drawing on Argentinian influences amongst many others, this is a tapas with a difference. Consistently rated as one of Sydney's best restaurants and with very good reason. There are that many 'wow' moments you're almost high by the time you exit. Brilliant service. Great atmosphere....

Had dinner with my partner at bodega yesterday night. The place is nice, table close but still private, when crowded it was slightly too noisy, but still appreciable. The service is impeccable, fast and funny, with a little campiness to it. The food is good. We had a really nice bruschetta with cuttlefish and kingfish, arepas (grilled maize dumbplings topped...

Easy walk from Meriton Campbell St this place was small but they squeezed us in. Great vibe and excellent foo - best fish fingers ever! Excellent Spanish wine, and desert was well worth making room for.

Rock'n staff and killer food make this the place to be. Seriously delicious and worth the wait- (get there as early as possible) Great wine list- ask for a recommendation and you won't be disappointed.

Sometimes the best dining experiences come by when you go into a restaurant without influences from so called food critics and recommendation sites. This is one of those memorable meals when we stumbled upon this delightful tapas restaurant during our visit to Sydney. Every one of the 5 tapas selection we made from the menu had something in common. They... More

Went here with work, group of 7. Had someone else pick everything we are, and everything was delicious. Such different thing that I would never have tried, smoked cod, bbq tongue! But it was amazing. Service was exceptional!

Made a booking for a small family gathering and was asked to be punctual as it is normally very popular. The service was professional & efficient. We liked the music & the atmosphere. The food was excellent. We tried the pork, octopus, green apple salad, crispy duck, maple beef ribs, lamb, calamari - but my favourite was the roast pumpkin... More
