Stumbled across this place when looking for somewhere to dine for dinner after arriving in Whitianga for the first time. The waitress who served us was lovely and attentive ! The food was okay but not as authentic as I would have hoped for.

While recently in Whiatanga we came across this little restaurant. Was a quiet night and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. The staff were fabulous, very friendly and happy to have a chat and recommend things for us to do while visiting here....More

We were holidaying in the area and discovered La Bodega during our walk. We were greeted by a very friendly staff member. We ordered 5 different tapas, all were fresh and tasty and the family enjoyed them all. We will definitely be back for dinner
