Nice casual ambience and great food snd service. Small dishes filled with exquisite taste. Cuban sandwich was a delight and well seasoned pulled pork, pickles, mustard , Swiss cheese and a slice of ham . The “yucca” cassava fried sticks were perfectly fried and soft..., served with an amazing garlic cilantro sauce . Hearty wings and an amazing Cream cheese cake with delicious guava jelly . Well done indeed . Gotta try the cocktail, Maria Hemingway! Make sure you come to Bodegas.More

Hidden gem! We pulled into the parking lot to find a local restaurant to get take out from and there it was! We got the Cuban sandwich with those delicious shoe string fries and an order of the street corn. The place was very clean-...friendly staff and the food rocked. It had been a long time since I had real Cuban bread!! Cant wait to try other menu items!More

Two words. Yuca Fries! Banner Elk is a little hidden gem in NC and Bodegas it's little star! If you are lucky you may even get a piece of their famous Florida Key Lime pie by Miami chef Paul Alcazar. It's a mix of glamping...in the mountains and demure elegance. If you are into star gazing while you sip on one of their artisanal drinks that brings out the smokey earth tones of the mountains, you will love it here!More

We were excited to eat there and food smelled amazing from outside. However the hostess greeting us was very rude. She seemed annoyed by having to accommodate our group with children. We turned around and walked out and took our business elsewhere.

We went with our two children and loved everything we ate! We even ordered take out two nights later as the food was the best in the area...by FAR!

The price is very high for the amount of food they serve. The food isn't that rich. The service isn't so bad. But whatever I paid for what I ate wouldn't come back. All portions are very small and very expensive.

Dined here without reservations; enjoyed our experience but the service/management seemed like they didn’t have it all together. Ropa vieja and Cuban sandwich were delicious! Hoping this restaurant can sort out the hospitality issues as the food is worthwhile!

Food was good, servants were nice but the manager/ bartender, was so rude that ruined the whole impression. Not family friendly place!

With COVID, I have made sure to make dinner reservations wherever we are traveling. I made reservations at Bodegas for Aug 20th, and we walked to the restaurant from the village center. Arrived and there was a note on the door they were closed. I...understand things happen, but they had my phone number and could have called. We walked back to the village and had to find another restaurant that could accommodate us. Bodegas was opened for the rest of the weekend, so it looks like it was closed just for that day. All the more reason a phone call would have been appreciated.More
