Good selection of Tapas, decent menu, decent prices, decent service, and a great paella. Worth visiting, but largish portions.

Ordered the paella (one with duck in it) and fed both two of us at the restaurant, and the leftovers fed us again later on!

Their tapas are the best. Please try chorizo sausages are the best which I had in US. The octopus was good but the potatoes were raw. Also their silverware was not very clean.

Light, simple bit sophisticated and authentic cuisine, washed down with cool sangria. The atmosphere is chilled as well and the price's are pretty OK for Georgetown.

Whilst the food was okay - meatballs, chorizo in particular- the service was disinterested and delivery of plates was abrupt. Not welcoming of tourists looking to experiment with different flavors.More

Bodega Tapas compares well to other tapas restaurants I have visited. The restaurant itself is larger than it looks when you enter, extending back to side rooms and an enclosed patio area in the back. We had green beans, croquettes and calamari, all of which...More

They have a big table for a large group of people in the second room, I would advise you make a reservation for that. In terms of quiet, it depends on the people inside and the time you go. For lunch its pretty quite, late... More
