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

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

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

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

This a great place, if you can find a table. We sat by the bar and had delicious tapas, Extensive wine list, great food, a treat for non meat eaters as well as meat eaters. Well worth the wait for a table. Top Marks
