From the cranes flying overhead to the eclectic menu Bodega offers something for everyone. Although I was alone it would be great for a group with differing food preferences. The wait staff were friendly and helpful.

My son and I had our early evening meal before going to Live at the Marquee. We were pleasantly surprised. I didn't think we would get food because we were there too late for lunch and early for dinner at ordinary restaurants. ...not a problem here though. Our waitress was really nice. We ordered our food and we were very happy with it. Tasty and good value for money. We would go back if in Cork again

Thank Wyvisview

Popped in for a quick bite to eat this evening. Such a pleasant surprise! Beautiful building and lovely staff. I had the roast vegetable soup with the house salad, both of which were beautifully presented and full of flavour. My server Claire was extremely polite, knew loads about the history of the building and was absolutely lovely. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

We had a family gathering and there were about 16 of us. We were given our table and catered for like a 5 star restaurant, rather than a 'pub restaurant' which is what this really is. This venue is definitely 'punching above it's weight' with unique items on the menu and a great approach to customers.

We just wandered into the Bodego and we were pleasantly surprised at the welcome that we received from the staff. Tasted several of the appetizers, enjoyed piano music as it was not too loud and Claire was even able to supply us with a detailed history of the building. Good food, beer, and ambience that made a relaxed evening in the midst of travel!
