“Value for Money and an excellent ambience!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

This restaurant has been operating now for a number of years and has always kept its standards, which are excellent food and fair pricing. Sometimes the portions were a bit small, what the main courses is concerned, but maybe that just teaches one to order starters as well.

The recently appointed new Head Chef, was the Sous Chef before, so standards set by his predecessor should stay high.

“Good tapas - great view”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Joined friends to celebrate a birthday and shared the tapas platters. Great quality and value, with wine included in the price. The view over the mountains is spectacular and the Dornier wine range pretty good.

“Gourmet tapas at great value”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

My husband and I were part of a big party celebrating a friend's birthday. First time for us at Bodega, but will definitely not be our last. Sleek & friendly service, excellent tapas (best we ever had and that includes having been to similar venues around Constantia) and a view that is hard to beat. R250 platter for two incl. a bottle of wine (specified). Love the ambience and décor. Wines on the wine list (and in the cellar) excellent and fairly priced for the quality. They also have lesser known (in SA) cultivars like a Malbec and Tempranillo, which is currently selling at R94 each at the cellar. (The Malbec sells for R124 in the restaurant.) Top score to Rafael and Phelan for excellent service; keeping everyone at the table happy and their glasses full!

“Great outing!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

My husband and I had the tapas platter for two, which included a bottle of wine, all for R250. It was most enjoyable and our waiter, Percy, was brilliant - extremely knowledgeable and charming! A great way to while away an afternoon - good food and wine in a magnificent setting!
