Delicious food and great value for money. Would be back
Absolutely loved our evening here. Very good covid set up, felt completely safe. The cocktails were so tasty, the food was delicious! Most importantly, our servers were wonderful - so friendly, attentive and personable.
We will definitely be back soon 😁
The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. Beautiful restaurant and very friendly staff. A little bit on the pricey side but I would definitely come back again.
Always consistently a great place to eat. Never disappoints.
First time out for a proper meal in months and didn't know if it would be as nice an experience as we've previously had but, it was as always fab, food was stunning, service was great and you could sit back relax and enjoy your evening.
The food was delicious.
Slightly annoyed that we could not choose the chocolate desert on the early bird even though all deserts were the same price on a la carte 🤔🤔
Great menu and the food was lovely! Great selection of wine and the cocktails were delicious! Enjoyed it for dining solo, but would equally recommend for couples/date nights or to groups of friends!
Noise level... I didn’t know how to rate that as for it fitted in with the ambience of the whole place... staff and everyone involved... take a bow!
Mannerisms to adhere to guidelines....perfect
Nice to see a lil quirky restaurant hit all the right signs!!
Great good, great service, great ambiance! I recommend the lobster croquettes and the lemon and raspberry dessert, they are both amazing..
Lovely to be out in what felt like and was a safe environment .Made feel so welcome from the minute we arrived .Food was super as usual .👏
Everything was lovely until they turned the music up, we asked for it to be turned down but was told it was a Friday night !!!!
Lovely restaurant with great food and wine. I highly recommend it!
Outstanding! the chef made a dinner specially to meet my food requirements, as I cannot eat many ingredients. It was super delicious, felt safe in the place too
Excellent food and an excellent dining experience. Congratulations.
Nice but nothing special , wouldn't be in any rush to return
Food was excellent, portion sizes just too large for me. Great experience though some very loud group tables
Delicious - a must for anyone looking for a really good quality meal out.
Consistently good food & service. Always enjoy our meals in Bodéga.
Well done to staff & management on adhering to COVID guidelines. Social distancing & staff all wearing masks throughout our sitting. A positive experience for us.
Really enjoyed our meal. We had the lobster and the burger. Both were excellent, we had baileys creme brûlée’s for dessert and it was delicious. The atmosphere was lovely and friendly and the service was attentive and helpful.
Covid guidelines were adhered to but it was done in a friendly manner.
Super experience all round.
Deliciously saine dining!! Excellent protocol through coronavirus checks to make sure its not present for my visit.
The food was delicious. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. It is a stunning restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. We felt relaxed and enjoyed our whole evening there.
As a Coeliac I felt comfortable eating there. Most dishes were adaptable and the waiting staff kept checking on certain foods with me which gave me great confidence knew the difference between a Coeliac and just GF.
Food was tasty but I thought the sauce with the pork belly was a little salty, but that may be just a personal taste.
Greeted warmly on arrival and staff very efficient and nothing was a problem to them.
Although impacted by COVID and social distancing there was still a nice atmosphere in the restaurant.
Would definitely eat here again.
Fabulous restaurant, food was amazing, service was excellent. The restaurant was spotless clean and all necessary precautions were taken to protect diners and staff in relation to covid. We felt very safe and throughly enjoyed our evening. Thank you
Overall experience excellent and Covid measures in place were spot on
Food was amazing, lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff. Overall extremely happy. We will definitely be back.
Really appreciated the COVID measures which made us feel safe and secure. Food was lovely too with a great choice. The Butternut squash and coconut soup was especially delicious and as many others have noted the pork belly is a must
Hey so ordered the steak and the pepper sauce was like water and was very disappointed with it as I got there for my birthday every year and was really good ! There was very little mash and lots of green leaves to nearly just fill the plate so overall was disappointed
Came here for Saturday dinner and enjoyed it so much we came back for sunday dinner also. Staff were so friendly and the food and atmosphere was really nice. We didn’t feel rushed at all and had a lovely evening ! Thanks guys if we are ever back down in Waterford will Defo be back x
Wonderful food, atmosphere and the kindest staff!! I couldn't recommend it enough!
For great food, served by a friendly team in lovely surroundings, Bodega is the place to go.
lovely staff, good service, good menu, would go again
Great food, wine, cocktails and atmosphere lovely friendly staff.
Lovely interesting place, food delicious and felt very safe.
Simply out of this world food, miso chicken wings are to die for, 8oz fillet steak and pan fried fish were mouth watering and to top it all off the raspberry pavlova was amazing!!! Highly recommend Bodegas. Have been here twice and both times have been memorable.
Really enjoyable experience- exceptional food and service! My partner and I got the fillet steak and the sirloin- both were delicious! Great selection of lovely cocktails! Would love to return when I’m back in Waterford!
Very good. Dessert was only thing that disappointed.
Food was lovely. Staff very welcoming and attentive. Plenty of room between tables. We were well looked after.
Very nice food and staff very friendly. Great atmosphere
Highly recommended if you are in Waterford! Amazing food, lovely staff and a great atmosphere!
