Tapas / Small Plates
At Bodega 1830 we wanted to create an authentic yet modern tapas experience that would not feel out of place if it were on a busy street in Madrid or Barcelona. Coupled with the very best wine selection, we hope that when you walk through the door that you leave the busy Clonmel streets behind for a delicious and delectable taste of Spain.

    We had a family occasion and decided to celebrate it at Bodega. We had a magnificent night!!! The food was tasty, the ambience was perfect, and the service was incredible. Mia, our waiter helped us choose dishes. She was so efficient, polite & smiled all night. The chef catered for my gluten & dairy free diet, and they did not scrimp on taste! The piano player is gifted and added to the atmosphere. The music blended into the background chatter, it added to our experience. We truly had a lovely night, topped off with a cocktail!!!

    Had booked a high top table however ended up being seated upstairs which was very warm. I think staff are aware of this as there was a fan at the top of the stairs however some sort of air conditioning would be of benefit. Tables are quite close together upstairs. Food was lovely, ordered 6 Taps which was, in hindsight, too much however all food was lovely. Had a drink in Gatsby’s afterwards. Nice room however dance music being played did not create the right mood for the setting. Main server in bar was lovely. Another server came to us to mention an “off menu” cocktail to us. We already had drinks but thanked him for mentioning. A few mins later he came back to us with two drinks and told us it was the cocktail he told us about. On tasting it, it was just water. He then came back a few minutes later to tell us it was just in fact water. We didn’t understand the reasoning behind this. It did put a dampener on our experience unfortunately.

    Hi Foody101 after reading your review i looked into it and this is what happened. That night we had a special cocktail on the menu which was put through a clarification process which leaves the drink transparent. Somewhere between the waiter offering you this drink and the manager bringing you glasses of water which is customary, on returning to your table the waiter thought you had ordered the cocktail, just a simple case of mistaking your glasses of water for the cocktail no hard was intended. kind regards Paul

    Great food, the prawn cracker and beef cheek dishes were a particular highlight for us. The service was a little all over the place though. We asked our waitress when ordering would it be possible to have the antipasti as a starter and to delay the hot tapas. However 3 different servers brought 3 different hot tapas to us before we were ready and we repeatedly had to explain our situation. It also took over 20 minutes for a cocktail to arrive. If they could sort out the service it would be a 5 star review from us!

    We have been to Bodega several times but this time around we decided to start the evening with a Cocktail. After the Cocktails arrived we asked if we could finish the cocktail before ordering food. Shortly afterwards another waitress arrived to take our food order and the food arrived before we could finish our cocktails. We found this part of the evening was a bit rushed and would have preferred if we were left to enjoy and finish the cocktails before food arriving on the table.

    We were 7 people at the table. It is my 3 time there, I love food and atmosphere there. Both previous times all food came all together, so we really enjoyed eating together. This time every dish came very separately: first dish came for the first person, and then second and third came after 10 minutes, then 4 and 5 after another 5-7 minutes, and so on - while all food were on the table id say it took 45 min all together. Eventually some people had 2-3 tapas, some had none and were still waiting. Also we never got the duck who ever ordered it, it was last dish to arrive, we all were finished eating and the person find out only by asking - that unfortunately kitchen finished all the duck. He got something else instead which is fair enough. I am just curious - food didn’t come to the table all together- is it because our table was of 7 people? Previous times we were 5 and 4 people and all was fine. I am not complaining or anything, just want to find out about food arrival all together for bigger groups than 7 people. Also we noticed that it was long waiting for drinks to arrive thru the night.

    Thank you for your review and your continued support of Bodega1830. Im glad your brought up this point as we have had many discussions internally about the best way to serve tapas for groups ( as with tapas they come out of the kitchen as ready ) with groups of 6 or more we will be emphasizing picking 5 tapas on a deal of 29.95 pp. We will then serve each tapa to everyone at the same time. e.g if you order nachos as one of the 5 we will bring out enough portions of Nachos for everyone. also if people then want to order any other specific dish they can do that also. This will make for a better Tapas experience for everyone in the group. thanks Paul

    Quality of food was very good, however as there was six at our table the tapas were slow arriving which meant some of us were eating while others were still waiting. It would have been a nicer experience if we all had some of our choices at the same time. I had eaten here twice before and the tapas for the table did arrive much closer together, but that was not the case last night.
    BODEGA 1830Responded on 6 January 2024
    Hi Chris Thanks for your feedback. For optimum experience we would recommend our group special which would be to pick 6 tapas for the group in your case 6 people. we would then deliver each choice to all the group at the same time. Example if Nachos was one of your choices we would serve enough nachos for the whole table. In my opinion this is the best way to enjoy tapas at bodega for any group 6 or more. Kind regards Paul

    Our first visit here on Friday and it won't be out last. The decor, the ambience and the food, 10/10. We came for a family meal and had two small kids with us, one who required a highchair. This was all accounted for on our arrival. Staff were so friendly and accommodating - especially towards our kids. I cannot remember the lovely ladys name at the front of house but she is wonderful addition to the team. Food and cocktails were outstanding and so reasonably priced. My only fault was that dishes were on slow side to arrive out. The five adults tapas dishes came out too far apart and one kids meals arrived mid meal. Hopefully this was just due to the restaurant being busy that night.

    3rd time giving this restaurant a go and won’t be back. Service was really poor and the food was so slow to come out. We ordered 2 tapas each between 3 of us and got them over the space of 1 and half hours. Our chips were freezing by the time the last round of food came. The salad came half way through. When questioned about this the manager said that’s how tapas work. There’s a tapas restaurant in the town that you will get all your food at the same time and actually share with your party. If you are in a small group you will have to wait until enough tables around you order a certain item before you will get it. Not impressed.

    Lovely experience from start to finish, from being greeted at the door to the leaving the restaurant everything was just right. The food was amazing and the service was tip top, and the little extras that we got made it personal and friendly We have visited many times but this was a first for our son and he was very impressed.

    Amazing Service and food. Really relaxed mood with piano been played and the laughter of friends and family out for meals. We got 5 Tapas and a portion of loaded taco fries. All the food was amazing. So so tasty. Had lobster for the first time and it was so tasty. It's my 3rd time been there and I can't wait to be back there again. Everything about the place and people is perfect.

    Atmosphere was lovely very nice restaurant. Food was outstanding was gorgeous and lots of choice especially for a coeliac. Servers were all very friendly and very nice and accommodating. Cocktails were gorgeous. Some tapas came kind of slow as in two at our table were done their five tapas before the other four, who were eating for a while after we had finished, that would be our only advice but didn’t take from our experience it was lovely.
