When Bodega first opened its doors in Surry Hills over a decade ago, it became a fast and firm local favourite, serving up food and fun times in a way that has made it synonymous with the neighourhood itself. We look forward to Bodega 1904 catering to the community of Forest Lodge and serving the surrounding suburbs in the same way.
Our chefs – Elvis, Ben and Joel – bring with them a wealth of experience and a diversity of influences from around the world with a niche focus on Argentinean and Latin American cuisine. We work closely with local farmers and fishermen to ensure that we bring you the freshest and best seasonal produce to create simple, honest dishes that are prepared exactly the way we love to eat with our own family and friends.

amazing food (especially the brussel sprouts!) and extremely attentive staff. great value for money and a lovely atmosphere.
Three mature ladies certainly appreciated a booth in the main part of the restaurant. Wide variety of meals on offer, we shared 3 entrees of calamari, croquettes and falafel which were delicious starters and then we all had the rigatoni. Just divine. I had been previously and was looking forward to ordering the Spanish eggs again but did not realise that our Friday lunch booking meant we couldn't order from the weekend breakfast menu. Bad luck - I will just have to return on a weekend which I will definitely schedule.
We had a great night, staff were lovely and the food was delicious. Kids really like it too which was a real bonus, best spaghetti and meatballs ever apparently. Will be back again soon for sure.
Went for lunch rather than brunch, Great food, even though it was set up on Sunday's for brunch there was still a good selection. Wine was excellent to compliment the food. Noise level was low even though it was very busy outside in the Tramsheds.
The food was excellent, the service was good, my friends enjoyed the wine list, the food did take some time to get to the table, it was a bit slow, overall it
Was a very enjoyable evening
We were there for brunch. Pleasant ambiance, whole Tramsheds development has a fun vice. Coffee was good. However very limited choices for brunch. I had a cheese & mushroom melt with egg which the flavours were nice but was served too cool so turned a bit too chewy and the egg too greasy. My husband had pancakes which were very small and not much flavour.
Great food and amazing service. Only downside was the main meal was served straight after entree. Staff apologised and gave us a complimentary drink after our meal. The wonderful staff make this restaurant a pleasure to dine.
Great restaurant in the Tramsheds. Excellent service, amazing food
A great experience for 4 friends to catch up and share great food. Love the ambience. Professional service. Convenient parking. Will definitely visit again.
Quite simply one of the best meals I have ever eaten - and we are foodies!
I had octopus - not only were the flavours amazing, it was so tender it just melted in my mouth. My partner had a vegetarian tart and said the flavour combo was stunning.
We shared a rhubarb tart desert - again delicious. Just the perfect amount of sharp and sweet, and a dusting of marjoram was perfect.
Amazing. In a GREAT setting too! We cannot recommend it enough.
Bodega has improved a lot since our last visit - food is genuinely tasty - service is good - but a little slow - nice reception too.
I’ve eaten here 4 or 5 times and its always outstanding
A wonderful experience and I would definitely return. Thank you for a wonderful evening of attentive service and delicious food.
A very long wait for our food and while 2/3 dishes were great (the steak and the broccolini) the polenta was awful. Too sloppy, was meant to be three cheese but all you could taste was rosemary.
Excellent service. Food was delicious. We had the chefs menu which was heaps of food. Would go back again.
The food and drinks were more tasty and interesting than expected - was surprised that the standard has maintained itself after a couple of years - definitely an impressive place for a girls night out!
Amazing food, and a good sommelier who will let you try interesting new wines.
Second time at Bodega. Always a nice experience. The key is not to over order...
The food was very good and the guy handling the wine was very knowledgable and helpful - including offering a couple of samples that were excellent. The ambience in the tramshed was great and noise levels were low, even with people moving around outside the restaurant. We had an excellent time, and would definitely recommend the restaurant.
Service was great, food ok not as good as the Surry hills menu
Recently changed menu is superb. Great tastes and quality service
Lovely staff and yummy food and the decor is beautiful
Lovely food and great service- perfect for a belated team Xmas lunch
We had the set menu in New Year’s Eve - the food was wonderful, so was the matching wine and the service was great. We will be back. Thanks for a great night!
Had a fabulous meal, thoroughly enjoyed everything. Definitely recommend.
Great food, amazing service! I came here for lunch and look forward to coming back for dinner at the bar!
Excellent service and outstanding food. The tramsheds is also a great spot for a coffee before or an ice-cream after.
Great food and service! Perfect for our family Christmas dinner. Extensive wine list with lots of natural wines.
Never fails to disappoint and service is always top notch. A regular favourite.
A great evening out. Fabulous food and excellent wine choices. Not too noisy. Attentive but not overbearing service. All of this and within easy walking distance of home!
You could be in Barcelona: this Bodega has all the attributes one expects of a Spanish/South American/ Australian style bar and restaurant. The staff could not have been more helpful, even offering some wines to taste before choosing, and meals were excellent, especially the lamb ribs. Comfortable, great for people watching at the bar, and an excellent selection of vino (I may have already said that!).
Bodega was nearly empty when we visited. The food was uninspiring and the serving sizes small, especially the "large" tortellini dish my son was served which was small and priced at $36.00, more than the fish dishes the rest of us ordered. The crockery was thick and unsophisticated, much like you would find at the local cafeteria or leagues club. Not what you would expect for $32 to 36 for a main.
Love this place and the food was great but the vego options (while tasty) were focused on pasta and cheese - tough sell next door to A Tavola! The original Bodega generally had more vego variety. The lamb was excellent though.
This place had it all, the food was astonishing! Flavours I had never tasted that just bursted in your mouth, followed by outstanding service that I haven't experienced in a long time. Super attentive, friendly, plates replaced with each new meal, drinks topped up before they were empty etc.
I have already recommended to friends and family. Cannot wait to dine here again!
Food was lovely. Service ok. Wine very expensive for the type of restaurant. Bench seats in the booths very uncomfortable for an older lady and a pregnant lady. Also booth seats were very low for an average person.
We have eaten here 4 times since opening
So we decided to take foodie friends here fordinner
To say we were disappointed is an understatement
The food and service compared to our previous visits was 3 out of 10
Will not be returning any time soon
We had a very tasty and filling lunch for 6 people. The service was very good and the staff polite. Food arrived promptly. I would certainly return.
Excellent place with amazing food and vibe. Each plate was a delight and the staff made sure your night was an excellent one.
Thankyou. Seventh wedding anniversary and everything was perfect.
Food is amazing, great wine list, friendly & accomodating! Definitely on the regular list!
