    Lovely food. Staff are nice but were a bit flustered and didn’t seem to communicate with each other - we were asked by more than one member of staff for our order when we had already ordered. After our starter the waitress came to clear our plates then said she had to leave the forks and wiped it clean for us instead of a fresh fork

    Great food and cocktails. Went for their January deal for 4 dishes for £25. Tacos were delicious. In my opinion best tortilla chips in town and generous fresh guac. It was super busy for a Tuesday night and felt bad for the 2 staff but they were super nice and service was quick.

    Very tasty tacos - the veggie and fish ones were my favourite! Good value for money also. We ended up spending less than 50 pounds for the two of us!

    Food was excellent, as always. Service was slower than usual which put a slight dampener on the experience. However, staff were friendly and I get that it’s the first week of Jan so the team are likely shattered!

    Maybe it was just the choices we made from the menu but our food lacked seasoning and was for the most part disappointing. The bean dip was very nice and the cocktails really tasty. We felt very rushed as they wanted to turn over the table but the food had taken a while to come so it felt a bit unfair then to be rushed when we were finished it. Had to hurry our churros down which were also meh. Third visit to Bodega and it really feels hit or miss.

    Food was fab as always, staff are lovely and helpful. However we’d booked for 5 and were sat in such a strange layout for 5 people, with two people on either end of a long table and three across one side, which made it really difficult to hear and have conversations!

    Bodega is a combination of amazing food, atmosphere and service. The menu is very unique and delicious. Also, you can’t go wrong with a pitcher of classic margarita. A bit busy over the weekend but totally worth the hype and the booking in advance

    I knew these were small portions, but must have forgot. A little disappointed with the value. £50 a head was steep for what you got. My friends had the margarita jugs and said they coukd barely taste the margarita.

    Amazing amazing food! However, we arrived before peak service and experienced a bit of a delay in between our starters and mains. Staff were knowledgable, friendly and were great at looking after us though. Highly recommend the potatoes and tempura scallions (pictured) - some of the crispiest batter you might ever have. Mezcal served with verdita was amazing - a first of many for me! Tacos all incredible, especially the squash one, plus the black bean dip with tortillas to start was delish. Freshly made tortillas as well. Would make a preference to have a printed menu rather than QR code as this uses phone battery (and on a full day out battery is precious!), it puts guests back on their phone which instantly feels unsociable (which should be the opposite when you go for dinner!!) and it's also just hard to see the full menu - much nicer to see it fully laid out in front of you.

    I used to go to the tiny Bodega which I miss and when the bigger one first opened it wasn't as good. This time was awesome! Stunning margaritas and tasty tacos. A great date night for two tired parents. We were looked after so well by our waiter. Can't wait until the next time.
