Is this Spanish food?! It's a joke, right?

Wow. People saying this is nice SPANISH food they must have never been to Spain or if they did, had their food in some tourist trap cause this food is anything but Spanish. First, is halal - and the substitute for pork the way they use it simply doesn't work. Second, is badly cooked and greasy... read more

We had about 4-5 dishes of tapas (eggplant with tomato sugo, lamb meatballs, mushroom in garlic sauce, garlic prawns, etc and it was served with complimentary slices baguette to mop up the sauces). Dishes were generally robust and flavoursome, except for the mushrooms which were insipid (tasted a bit like the mushroom sauce you get on steaks with less flavour).... More

We enjoyed delicious ice coffee at one of La Bodega's sidewalk tables. The tapas were nothing to write home about, but it was a fine place to chill.

They have ladies night on every Thursday. Ladies are entitle to get free flow of beers and house wines from 8pm till 10pm. Great place to chill with warmth ambience, ideal tapas, and they even have board games! Upstairs have widen floors and some of the nights they hired a dj to spin.

Had lunch with some friends here on the weekend, 5 adults, 3 kids aged 1-5. Food was probably 3.5 stars, my salted beef sandwich was really good, as were the codfish croquettes. Most others had pasta, which was fair to good. Drinks service was ok, seemed to be a bit of a breakdown in communication between bar and outside staff,... More

Visited the La Bodega branch in BSC and found the menu to be quite lacking for a typical tapas place. Ordered patatas bravas with garlic mayo sauce and cod croquettes. Both were horrible! The potato wedges were thin enough to be called fries and definitely fried and refried to be heated up before being served. They were also incredibly hot,... More

We came here for breakfast today and we were sadly disappointed. I ordered French toast, it was sub-par quality undercooked. Plus hash browns on the side which were just as sad. While I received my meal in an acceptable time frame, my partner had ordered an omelette and waited far too long. I had easily finished my breakfast and he... More

I am in Malaysia since 5 years and I have been many times to the different La Bodega restaurants in Kuala Lumpur. The quality of service and food is very going down especially the one in Bangsar shopping center...
