As portuguese visiting Luxembourg, We decided to try this place, after seeing the good reviews here on Tripadvisor. It had indeed good and savy food. We tried the "bacalhau" and the lamb and they were indeed done the same way as if we were home. As for the ambience, we hadn't reserve so we were only able to secure a place at the ground floor, which is Ok, but nothing special...

All in all, very good food but the ambience, especially at the ground floor, could improve a lot, especially if they take out the TV they had showing the footbal.
A negative note was the bathroom, which was very dirty, hence my rating on only "average"

If you are a fan of Iberian cuisine, this restaurant is a Luxembourg-must-visit place for you. It's an adorable little restaurant, with a friendly ambient and incredibly tasty dishes. Certainly amongst the best in town!

Had lunch there during a business trip to Luxembourg. The restaurant is small, on two floors, and the decorations make one feel as in someone's house - very comfortable and friendly. The special of the day was veal cutlets with mushroom cream sauce with salad and fries. The veal was fine, but the sauce and the fries were really good. Simple and tasty food in a most comfortable environment.

Very nice relaxed place, the list of "tapas" is a bit limited and more Portuguese than Spanish but very tasty.The waiter is very friendly and they are open until late.

We discovered the Bodega the first time by chance in 2011. The Bodega is near the Place d'Armes towards the Urban pub in the center of Luxembourg, and just back of the Cercle Cite' Municipal building. It is this great little tapas bar and restaurant in the middle of Luxembourg. Having worked on projects off and on in Lux over 3 years, I can tell you two things: 1) most are pretentious, French-restaurant wannabees, and 2) they are waaay over-priced! OK, they are Spanish but speak mainly French, which I find odd in most restaurants in the city center in a country that speaks to over 80% a Germanic language, and full bankers, who speak English or German mainly. Although they speak no English, this place is great! It is ran by a "man and his dog" as such, but is first class service and the tapas are top! Also, the other food is fantastic and cheap! Getting something other than expensive French menus and bad service in French would be good enough in Luxembourg, but the Bodega is in a class all its own! This place is full everyday of the week, the beer and wine great and cold, and the tapas real. It seems they serve only fresh, vibrant food. My only advice is tell them to learn English and German, and perhaps they should buy the building beside them! Yes, I think they are good enough to be able to service it too! Want a good, inexpensive restaurant in the center of Lux, go to the Bodega! Hint: If you are more than 2 people, you will need to reserve a table. My two cents worth, nuff said!
