Called in on Friday Evening and my wife tried a couple of cocktails and I tried a couple of beers. The drinks were good although a little expensive. The atmosphere was good as it was again on Saturday evening. Will definitely call again.

This place is popular and probably 'the restaurant & bar' to be in however its popularity impacts on its service. Firstly and probably rightly (unless you are a huge group) this restaurant does not take advance reservations but it can be a wait for some. With over 40 different dishes and platters on top the range here is superb. Equally... More

Went in for a meal at 6pm there were at least 3 tables free; a 6 seater which could be split in to 3 a booth which would hold 2 and a table for 4. We were told that there was no availability and so were a couple who entered at the same time. Obviously they are happy to turn... More

Enjoyed cocktails in downstairs bar on a wet Saturday night and it was buzzing with atmosphere. Decided to try the upstairs restaurant for dinner and very glad we did. Lucky enough to get last table as very budy. Excellent choice of tapas at reasonable prices - and the portions were huge. Good waiting staff who were very helpful. Highly recommended.

We went here last night and spent about 2 hours in the bar. It's a very noisy bar, but it works. It was really busy when we first went in but we managed to find somewhere to sit. I had three cocktails and they were really nice! The best one by far was the Eton Mess which is just pure... More

I enjoy a visit to the Bodega when I visit the Lakes. The atmosphere is buzzing but could do to have the toilets modernised!
