“Verry Cool and Trendy”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We had a long day on the road and just wanted a quick bit and a glass of wine. We did not have a reservation and as a result we were offered a seat in the lounge. I actually would ask to sit in the lounge if I went back. It is very cool and trendy, set in an old house, they have made a very long and very inviting social bar. We were impressed with the list of tapas and wines both by the glass and by the bottle. We tried several appetisers, the crab cakes were of particular note, must have been fresh crab to have that level of flavour. We also tried the chicken pizza. It was alright, a layer of uncooked fresh herbs on top gave it bit of a grassy taste otherwise it was tasty. Overall it was exactly what we were hoping for. Would definitely go back and stick to the tapas.

“Great food with great service - the perfect combo”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Had heard good things about La Bodega so I decided to check it out on my recent business trip to Regina. The place is easy to find, right on Albert street a few blocks north of the legislative grounds. The decore is nothing spectacular and the menu is focused, indicating they only want to serve what they do well. I had a small steak with a side ceasar salad. Steak was delicious and nicely cooked. Salad was excellent with nice fresh ingredients. Dessert was warm french crepes wrapped around banana halves with whipped cream and ice cream. Very nice. Good coffee too. I had the benefit of a clear view of the serving staff buzzing around the kitchen and the bar. It was pure ballet. This is a tight spot where collisions would be easy or frustrations as staff block each other's progress to get in and out of the kitchen. There was only the smooth, responsive actions of a team dedicated to great service. The staff were active, hustling to get food out and respond to their customers. What fun to watch. Great job.

“SO GOOD!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

This place has such a great variety of Tapas! Their menu is changing all of the time but one of my favourites was the Lobster Poutine! Neat eating experience and quite reasonable for the quality of food!
