Wow! We stumbled upon this place and asked downstairs if we could eat. The girl behind the bar ran upstairs for us and grabbed us the last table! So much choice in food and wine, we opted for a bottle of Shiraz, a sharing platter and a few dishes which were priced around the £5 mark. Food arrived fairly quickly... More

Lovely tapas meal, very modest prices, Wonderful staff. We visited around 7.30 on a Wednesday night and didn't need to book. Busy in the vat downstairs, about 50% full in the restaurant. Nice and authentic feel in the decor and dishes on the menu. The albondingas were gorgeous, not over keen on the croquettas but that may just be personal... More

After a trip on the lake, one needs a pit stop, both input & output. This is a great solution with seating both inside & outside. We will use this again during our stay.

We have been a few times and even though some of the dishes are really good! The service is nothing but disasterous.👎We come to the lakes alot throughout the year and will NOT be going back to Bodega.

This is a really nice tapas bar, food is good and reasonably priced. For wine, Try the Albarinho (which I gather is the latest 'must do' grape, but I'd never heard of it!). It was a shame that the waitress who plucked the menu from my hand didn't explain that they stop serving food in the bar at 18:00, but... More

I'll be honest, I'm sick of going "trendy" Tapa's restaurants where they mess with the food and its overpriced & rubbish, Bodega food is authentic, simple, very tasty and reasonable - we will be returning!!

On our second visit to the lakes, we decided to eat at Bodega again because it was so good last time. We tried to make a reservation for the Saturday evening, but couldn't, We were told we'd be able to have a drink at the bar, whilst a table (for 8) became available upstairs in the restaurant. There's a great... More

We stopped here on our final night in Bowness and were glad we did! A huge selection of tapas around £5-6 per dish. We got 6 dishes between two of us and there was plenty. Go earlier in the evening then you can sit and eat in the bar room which has a great Spanish theme.
