Charming place and vibe. Very friendly staff that works hard and fast to give you and tidy up the empty tapa plates. Big choice of tapas. Not the best tapas we have eaten but anyway a high quality. Freshness is the most important and it was. Of course a big amount of people and noise... if you don't mind it's... More

While is a very popular spot and always quite busy, the quality of the food was average. The tortilla was very dry and tasteless, that fried calamari where border line to awful. The highlight was the montadito of solomillo which was pretty decent. Bottomline you definitely can find better places to eat on Maastricht, NO WAY this is within the... More

This really is one of the best tapas restaurants in the country. It's location is great, in the summer you can sit outside if you're lucky. The design inside looks authentic, staff is friendly. But most important the food is authentic and tastes great! Great tapas, freshly made which means a dish could be sold out during the evening. Next... More

Very nice restaurant with very Spanish atmosphere. You can go there for typical meals (rations) or for tapas experience. Food is very good as is the wine. Really had Spain vibe in there.

A bit touristy, but tapas are good quality. Nice choice considering alternatives in the area. I would suggest the calamari and king prawns.

Avoid at all cost! The tapas are made without love and bear no similarity whatsoever to the wonderful originals one gets in Madrid, Barcelona or anywhere else in Spain. We had a few glimpses of the kitchen when staff was entering and exiting - looked filthy and a mess. Seating is very cramped and the restaurant would be a death-trap... More

We weren't very hungry but wanted to sample some local food on our last night in beautiful Maastricht and fortunately went to 'La Bodega'. The service was very good, the atmosphere - very Spanish. Could not fault this place. We particularly enjoyed the potatoes with cocktail sauce, and the beef skewers.

Located on a cute little street just off the vrijhof this tapas place looks very inviting from the outside and Inside it was cosy with friendly staff and a good atmosphere. The tapas menu was varied and we chose some really tasty dishes, their pimientos de padron were beautiful. We left feeling really happy with food, service and price. Thank... More

Whenever we are in Maastricht diner at La Bodega is on top of the list. For us this is the best Tapas restaurant in the Netherlands (and we tried many). Only in Spain we had better Tapas. We always go for one of the Tapas menu's. The fish is good as is the meat (nice hams). The staff is always... More
