Had the chef’s special and it was really good! Enjoyed the elotes con crema... street corn.. needed more cream originally. When I asked for more, the staff quickly brought it. The meat on my tacos was super trendy and just melted in my mouth!

What quaint little place! I absolutely loved the special margarita for the evening. The carne asada tacos were amazing. The tomatillo sauce was the right amount of spicy. The house made salsa was a little sweet for me but it was definitely full of flavor and had a nice kick. The staff is extremely friendly. Great place for a fun evening alone or with others!

Both the food and service was fantastic. Our tortilla chips were refilled when we finished them without asking which a lot of places don’t do! BYO wine also makes it a budget friendly option! Will definitely go again.

Having been to the leith walk premises a few times we visited Toll Cross and it is everything we expected from Bodega! Food is delicious! Service is professional and laid back. A small but comfortable venue as a nice vibe. And though I think I’ve almost had everything on the menu, the taste is so fresh it makes you want to go back again! Whoever thought a taco could taste so good! BYOB is a touch also so hope they don’t give that up.

I'll give this place another try as I feel like we went on a bad day. We arrived and there was no one to be seen (neither staff or patrons) but were seated quickly after finding someone. As we were the first people there we were excited to have hot and speedy food. We ordered and waited, and waited and waited. It took 45 minutes for our plates to come out and as we were a table of 2 this was... not great. The food was very nice, and I will give it another chance, but speed, service and atmosphere all left a lot to be desired.

Cracking tacos! Working my way through the menu but every taco I’ve had has tasted great!

Unlike many Mexican restaurants bodega has gone for quality over just sheer quantity. I’d rather have these guys Vietnamese pork belly or Baja fish in my tacos than your ordinary Mexican fair that’s just smothered in cheese and sour cream.

First of all we were disappointed to learn this was not BYOB as advertised all over the internet. This was our main motivation for coming here so understandably felt let down that it was not advertised on your website as no longer being so. The food however was lovely! And the staff were very friendly. It’s a super small place and we felt like we couldn’t stay for long as it was busy and noisy so headed to the bar across the way. Nice food but probably won’t be back.

Small space, but very nice. Bit of a squeeze getting seated but well worth it. Nice mix of diners from students to older people. The table next to the door isn’t great though. Food was tasty. Small menu but everything we had was good. Staff were good but when I asked to move table one said no, the free table was taken. The other member of staff said no problem which was good, and no one ever did turn up for that table, which was a little annoying. Enjoyed it so will probably go back from time to time.

Lovely little restaurant with a great vibe, and loved the food. The staff were a little over worked but provided great service. There was a rowdy group of students that overtook the room, but that can’t be helped. I was as bad when I was their age, probably worse to be fair. Definitely better for groups rather than solo like I was today, felt a bit awkward amongst the conversations going on around me and it being quite small trying not to look like I was nosing in on other people’s discussions. Not a knock on the restaurant at all, just a perfect place for a group of mates for a meal.

I really liked the food and the ambiance - but the service was really quite slow - only one waitress on and I felt the food was slow to come out given its quite a limited menu. Having said all that - we would definitely give it another go

There were six of us. The menu is small but that's a good thing, and everyone was able to find things they were able to eat, including the three vegetarians. It has a great vibe and the food and margaritas were excellent as was the service. Definitely recommend.

My third visit but this time in the evening. Love this small restaurant, the menu is limited in a good way, the food is fresh with something for everyone including the vegetarian in our party who loved his dishes, there are many flavours to excite the tastebuds and the ambience is great. The waiting staff do get very busy but they are never that far away. I will be back.

Delicious food and expertly made margaritas (for just a fiver). Best vegan taco taste experience so far in Edinburgh. Not many veggie options but the ones they have are all super tasty. Identical offering and just as good as Bodega on Leith Walk.
