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

Great food and service. Ordered the cheese, albondigas and chorizo croquettes, all were fantastic! Small place, we ate on a Sunday night with no wait.

12 EUR for 4 gambas which were not very good; 4.50 EUR for a very small portion of fried potatoes, but the worst is 7 EUR for 3 small pieces of bread. This is the first time ever I had to pay for bread in a restaurant. As I thought it was free, I asked for a little more bread,... More

We had high expectations about the food here. But we had mixed feelings .Croquetas de jamon were ok albeit a little too much fried. The gambas a la plancha and the berenjenas al miel were exquisite. Good selection of wine by the glass. The patatas bravas were very mediocre : the sauce served was absolutely not a brava sauce but... More

We did not make a reservation but they were happy to served us anyway. Service was fast and tapas were delicious. Bathroom was very clean eventhough it was a very busy evening.

We came in the restaurant without a reservation but they immediately accommodated it us with a pre-reserved table..The tapas were served very quickly as well as the drinks,almost 2 minutes after our order.The selection of Spanish hams was not that good, but the pinchos were really well cooked..The calamares a la plancha are the stars of the show..All in all...
