Relaxing venue

Not our first visit to the Bodega. Food still solid and well prepared. As almost every time some dishes from the list were unavailable, service could be more professional but staff was very very friendly. Good wines from the estate. It is a relaxing atmosphere on that veranda.

This is a picturesque setting especially on a warm autumn day. Our waiter was very friendly by clumsy. We ordered a 2 course meal with mains and desert. We ordered mains and desert together. After waiting for at least an hour and half and having finished our bottle of wine our mains arrived. I had pork belly which was wonderful.... More

The food came out slowly - we were a table of 14 though - and it was busy. The wine was served slowly and much of the meal we helped ourselves to refill. The staff are friendly - although a bit un-approachable. We would not go back soon.

We went to have lunch at Dornier's. It is an absolutely beautiful place. From their terrace you have a magnificent view over the vineyards and mountains. You can sit in the shade but also partly in the sun. When it's getting too hot, they actually spray mist onto the terrace which was most welcome by us. The food is also... More

An annual Family Easter luncheon treat was the reason to take a drive to the winelands away from the city buzz. Our host found the Easter special on the website. On arrival, the mountain vista was beautiful. We were met by two courteous staff members at the terrace reception table. Wind - inside or out was an option - we... More

Previous review was a 5 star one. This time, We waited over 2 hours for our meal. One order was completely wrong. To be fair, they comped the wrong order. However, we will never return..

5 of us met up for lunch on a Wednesday in March, the seafood special was on, basically more seafood than you can eat at half price, no debate we ordered two of them, two of us had a 12 hour flight to catch that evening so we tried to invoke quantity control, waste of time, the food was delicious...

Went for lunch on a Monday which is not always the best day to visit any resteraunt. Good menu range and good food. A couple of items were not available which to me indicates they source fresh food in smaller quantities rather than bulk frozen foods. Service was very goods, wines excellent especally the Malbac and the setting is awesome... More

My family enjoyed a great lunch at Bodega. Have been there several times, but the food and service is still outstanding. Our waiter smiled from the moment we arrived. Our 4 year old son enjoyed the playground while we enjoyed our delicious lunch.

We visited your restaurant alot because it is kiddie friendly and the food is great. After today, and how your staff handled a situation and treated us we will never visit your restaurant again. It is not kiddie friendly and the manner in which you handle your customers is shocking!
