Really good food served here, in a lively setting. There was a queue before it opened, which is always a good sign.

Loved everything about this place. So glad we found it. It really is one of those restaurant discoveries you love telling your friends about. Can't wait to be back in Sydney to try more off that awesome tapas menu & relax with amazing service that doesn't over do the formalities. Well done the team at bodega. Faultless.

A lot of hype accompanies this place, and it doesn't quite live up to it, but we still enjoyed it. We love Porteno so had to try this Bodega. It's cool. The music is great and, for us, perfectly loud. No, it is not a library, but that's its appeal. The staff are fun and clearly enjoy working there. Nothing... More

I wouldn't call the food at Bodega Spanish as others have noted. I would say that the food is presented well and is quite tasty. We had a banquet, and for the price I would have expected a bit more. The service was fantastic and the wine list is impressive, ambiance was pretty much spot on in our section. A... More

As spaniard I'm able to confirm that Bodega does not serve Spanish food at all maybe it's just South American but NOT Spanish. Anyway the food and the place are only nice.... but nothing else! We were there having dinner a month ago, the white anchovies were the best tapa (delicious) but the bill wasn't worth it. We were 4... More

This may be a bit black and white, but, for the sake of this review, I'll break restaurants down into 2 categories. In the first you are treated courteously, waited upon seamlessly and nothing is too much trouble because you're the customer and eating in the establishment is about your experience, one that you're paying for. Then there are places... More

If only the management listened to all the complaints here about the music being too loud. But possibly the message doesn't sink in, they don't hear it, because the music is too damn loud. It's a restaurant fundamentally (not a bar or nightclub) and frankly unless you are incapable of conversation you don't need the music to be so loud... More
