Best chicken wings I've ever had! The staff were amazing and gave us a freebie as it was our anniversary. Lovely decor also. I would have preferred the pork belly slightly more crispy but other than that it was amazing.

Was thoroughly blown away by the food here, really, really tasty. Had a selection of tacos and a couple of sides. Would wholeheartedly recommend the Mexican streetcorn and the spicy potatoes. Nice casual vibe.

Great tacos. Do as menu suggests and order a couple of plates each. Drinks are well made too! Only tiny downside is the churros... should be big and crispy on the outside not small and soft. Avoid the puds and stick with the tacos.

First time I’ve been and will definitely be back! The food was fresh and something different, throughly enjoyed it. I recommend trying a few different tacos…hard to pick the best one but the Pork was awesome! A special mention to the staff who were excellent……attentive, made sure everything was ok and kept everyone safely distanced. Overall a 5 star review.

Visited with a friend for a quick dinner, before the lockdown hits.
Bodega is a friendly, cozy place that offers tasty, freshly made food, a great choice of delicious cocktails, all with a friendly and efficient service.
Also, Bodega clearly takes very good care to provide a safe environment for its diners: screens between individual tables with enough spacing between them too, sanitisers available on entry and on every table, staff conscienciously wearing face coverings....
This was my second visit, and there will definitely be more.

Great ingredients in the tacos! The quality they use is very high, and very well cooked. The bread they use is not so good, but overall their tacos are very good.

Been here a few times with my wife and the food has never disappointed us.
I did feel that on this particular occasion that only having one member of staff waiting all the tables did impact upon service.
My wife and I will still revisit at a later date.

Good procedures in place to ensure staff and customer safety from Covid-19.
Food is excellent - very difficult to pick out a highlight! We had the black bean dip and nachos to start, then four of the tacos between us (my favourite was the beef) along with a side of sweetcorn - which I would definitely recommend. And the margheritas were good too.
