Bodega Reviews

  • A small restaurant lit with fairy lights and candles coupled with slow relaxing ambient music. Though a small venue the tables are spaced out quite well so you are not on top of the other guests. The decor makes you feel like you are in a mountain village in Spain. The service staff were very attentive, proactive and thoughtful. They engage really well with guests. The food was fantastic, comes piping hot, the pork belly melts in your mouth and the chicken was extremely tender and moist, everything was well seasoned and tasty. It’s a great spot for a special occasion dinner in Waterford

  • If I could give Bodega 5+ * then I would. This gem of a restaurant was an absolute delight. Food was superbly delicious. Service was gentle but very effective. Atmosphere had a positive vibe between the chatter from contented customers combined with the low key music in the background. Every dish we selected was mouth watering & lip smacking yum-sious! I can only highly recommend a visit if in Waterford.

  • Really good food, very tasty and well done. The atmosphere is good, the drinks were amazing 🍸 I would go back for a nice date dinner or something more special. I wouldn't say much about the service because I don't like people coming to the table all the time. But I understand that they are trying to keep everybody happy.
