“Tappas and view--YAY!”
Reviewed January 6, 2011

We stumbled upon this place and were so impressed! The squid is amazing (not to mention fresh)! If you are looking for light fare--do not miss! Our service was exceptional, the food delicious, and the Presidentes were cold! What more could you want??? Ohhhhhhhhhh and on the beach--great view! This place was one of the few in Grand Case that were open during a tropical storm--just a few minutes walk from Grand Case Beach Club. It was refreshing to have a place that was unpretentious, yet delicious! Rock on!

“Serves a purpose”
Reviewed May 29, 2010

I wouldn't call La Bodega a restaurant; at least, thats not why we went there. It is a small bar right on the beach with delicious an pleantiful tapas and very tasty sangria. We went twice for a plate of tapas and wine before visitng one of the area restaurants for dinner. The two guys that run the place are nice enough, but after you get your food and drinks, you have to actively seek them out to get refills or the check, which was a little annoying. Overall, La Bodega is a fun option for a small bite and delicious sangria/wine while sitting water side.

“Keep walking.”
Reviewed October 18, 2009

Given its waterfront location and favorable reviews, I was ready to love this place. But after we ordered, I noticed something odd written on the chalkboard behind the bar. A rough translation from the Spanish: "Islanders and Spaniards welcome. Gringos - see you later." I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised that we gringos got served a very bland paella and room-temperature white wine. Clearly Americans are not welcome here, and with so many good places on the same block there is no reason to spend your Yankee dollars at La Bodega.
