We’re disappointed in Bodega’s new set up. We loved the restaurant at the old location with private tables. The new set up is 1 long bar, so our group of 4 was 2x2 each side, with other groups of 4 also split across the bar on either side. It’s noisy, and impossible to have a private dinner conversation. A couple was sitting together on 1 side and despite the lack if privacy, engaged in heavy PDA. Very awkward for diners (us) who were elbow to elbow with them. It’s also such a tight space that the wait staff had to squeeze behind you to reach others. The food was excellent - varied and every dish delicious. The wine was also excellent. Sadly, the atmosphere was awful. It’s very expensive for that type of experience. I won’t return unless they put in tables.
Got in early for lunch, photoshoot going on and no one else dining - perfect! Great service, left it to them to select dishes and accompanying wine. My old friend and I could concentrate on catching up. Could have stayed there all day if it wasn’t for his flight out...
Terrific wines, fantastic service & wonderful food!
Outstanding client lunch experience. The waiter took control of ordering and was very attentive thereafter. Food had depth of taste and presentation was superb. Highly recommended.
Wonderful and delicious food, lovely, helpful and attentive staff, great vibe and atmosphere!
Amazing food. Been many times and they have the best staff in Sydney. Looking forward to visiting their new premises.
Bodega never fails to satisfy! It has been a personal favourite of mine, a place to enjoy an intimate dinner for two or an evening with friends. The food is outstanding and the hosts are friendly and personable! I highly recommend Bodega!!
Interesting food with impressive flavour combinations. Fun service, great experience
Delicious food though
Some smallish dishes a little expensive.
Appreciate changes to the menu
We have been to Bodega many times and have never been disappointed. It’s one of our favourite restaurants. The food is always original and delicious and the service is welcoming and professional. I would be happy to recommend Bodega to anyone.
Bodega is my favourite restaurant. It has the perfect mix of great food, staff and ambience. Am never disappointed.
Being a huge fan or Argentinean food, I used to visit Bodega quite regularly. It had been some time between visits and I was extremely disappointed on my return.
My first waitress was unhelpful and difficult, putting a very sour taste in my mouth from the moment I walked in, and some of the best plates from the old menu were no longer available such as the empanadas and dulce Leche with earl grey ice cream. I work in an industry where I entertain regularly and won’t be returning or recommending to clients or friends.
Wir waren seit langem mal wieder im Bodega (Regensburg) und es war ...
... sehr lecker (8 verschiedene Tapas - einige Grappas :)
... Service anfänglich etwas launisch - sehr viel los - aber dann sehr nett
... meist schnelle Essenslieferung
... ein sehr schönes Ambiente
... super und ich würde es einem Freund/Freundin immer weiter empfehlen!
The food was OK - nothing special and very small, overpriced portions. We had 4 main tapas dishes between two of us, plus one dessert, which came to $120 and yet I was still hungry afterwards. I wouldn't mind the cost if the taste had been outstanding, but I found it rather average to be honest. I wouldn't go back.
Most overrated restaurant
Food very basic and service not friendly
Expensive would not recommend
Wonderful vibe, amazing food and great service, I would recommend to anyone
Great ,location, beautiful food. I really enjoyed dining at bodega and I love all of their restaurants!
Good efficient service with delicious food. Highly recommended.
This neighbourhood Spanish gem still delivers the goods.
WOW!! Spectacular food
Loved the atmosphere and the staff where fun, attentive and helpful.Good fun night.Fabulous food and wine, see you soon.Big thanks.
We had a group of 6 and really enjoyed the evening. The service was very good and the food and wine was lovely. The only thing was that it was noisy and we had to talk louder to hear each other which would have made it even noisier.
Great atmosphere , quirky and sophisticated. Great staff and service
I have been to Bodega several times and have always enjoyed the food, service, and great wait staff. This time we sat in the first section of the restaurant and it was somewhat noisier than the other room especially with the door to the restaurant left open. Generally the food was tasty and interesting however on this occasion I found some of the dishes tasted bland. The avocado on one of the dishes was tasteless. It added nothing to the dish and only served to make the meal less textured. There was also a sauce on a chicken dish that didn't add much flavour or spice. Not sure if the avocado had been cut with something to make it smooth so it lost more of its flavour this way. So overall mixed feedback on the dishes.
Spanish wine we chose was excellent.
We'll probably give this one a rest for the moment.
Every dish we ordered was a hit. Great tasting food.
Absolutely loved it, ambience, staff, the flavour combinations of the tapas - just wow!
Disappointed with our visit, food has gone really downhill. Not worth the money for the quality
The arepas and the Wagyu is a must have! Love love love the octopus salad as usual
Delicious flavours with some unusual twists to tapas offerings. Only downsides very noisy and fairly expensive.
Dont ever write review but dìd not understand menu.order corn fritters.i thought fritter was made with batter not crisp base.calamari dish very small undercooked. Pork salad ok but not great
Dont no maybe off night.cheers
This eatery helped revitalise Surry Hills as a foodie's destination with outstanding reason. The dishes all have a distinct favour and the standouts are the skirt steak, corn fritters and especially the fish fingers. Whilst many restaurants open and shut like the flash in a pan, this place stays open for good reason.
Food exceeded our expectations and the staff were lovely! You cannot / must not skip the Gozleme. Ridiculously good!
The food was fun, innovative, banging with Flavour. Want to come and try more. We were impressed with the flavors and the freshness with each dish. Loved the fusion effects to each Latin element. We left with a need to come back for more.
The food was amazing and wine list was fantastic. A perfect place for a date night or dinner with friends. Never disappoints.
Very interesting delicious food. The chefs are to be congratulated and we also appreciated the friendly and informative service.
Really amazing dinning experience. Staff, ambience, food and wine selections are wonderful! Will come back again!
The love heart emoji with the two different sized pink hearts.
Wonderful food, brilliant service, great experience... highly recommend
Had an amazing time a Bodega. Everything was delicious. Perfect.
The dumplings and wagyu beef were outstanding. Slightly less enthusiastic about the fish fingers which were tasty but a little too salty. The banana split dessert was as good as the reviews state!
