Excellent selection of tapas especially the gambas in ailo. Good selection of drinks. We were there with a large group, but service was prompt and kept up! Pricing was very reasonable.

Group of 5 of us visited over the xmas period. Pretty good range of tapas, all well done and just the right antidote to the repetitive food normally had over Christmas. Only criticism was we had to sometimes wait a while before we could catch someone's eye for more drinks or food but the staff were friendly and helpful once we got their attention.

Having visited La Bodega I have to accept the fact that the best tapas I have ever had was German!

We were lucky enough to discover this place on the first night of our trip and returned again on the last. The first time we arrived early (about 6.30) and were seated quickly downstairs. The 2nd time we were later and had to accept a stool by the door as this place is very popular with locals and tourists alike. I was expecting poor service as the restaurant was at capacity but it was absolutely consistent. Still, I would advise you to book in advance if you want a good seat.

Its easy to see why La Bodega is so popular. The service is good, value reasonable, and food great.

Once inside, La Bodega is huge, having many different segements. The service was good and the tapas excellent. I've eaten plenty of tapas in different countries round Europe, and this is definitely the best I've been to outside Barcelona.

First time there with my girlfriend. We shared some very good tapas (patatas bravas, garlic chicken, beef with mushroon sauce, cheese-filled mushroom, gambas with garlic sauce, dates rolled in bacon). Pleasant service but it was a bit long to be served. Nice atmosphere but it was really too hot in.
