When Bodega first opened its doors in Surry Hills over a decade ago, it became a fast and firm local favourite, serving up food and fun times in a way that has made it synonymous with the neighourhood itself. We look forward to Bodega 1904 catering to the community of Forest Lodge and serving the surrounding suburbs in the same way.
Our chefs – Elvis, Ben and Joel – bring with them a wealth of experience and a diversity of influences from around the world with a niche focus on Argentinean and Latin American cuisine. We work closely with local farmers and fishermen to ensure that we bring you the freshest and best seasonal produce to create simple, honest dishes that are prepared exactly the way we love to eat with our own family and friends.
Whether celebrating a special occasion with family and friends or hosting a corporate event, Bodega 1904 can accommodate all of your special event needs.View Private Dining Details
The food was excellent, the service was good, my friends enjoyed the wine list, the food did take some time to get to the table, it was a bit slow, overall it
Was a very enjoyable evening
We were there for brunch. Pleasant ambiance, whole Tramsheds development has a fun vice. Coffee was good. However very limited choices for brunch. I had a cheese & mushroom melt with egg which the flavours were nice but was served too cool so turned a bit too chewy and the egg too greasy. My husband had pancakes which were very small and not much flavour.
Great food and amazing service. Only downside was the main meal was served straight after entree. Staff apologised and gave us a complimentary drink after our meal. The wonderful staff make this restaurant a pleasure to dine.
Great restaurant in the Tramsheds. Excellent service, amazing food
A great experience for 4 friends to catch up and share great food. Love the ambience. Professional service. Convenient parking. Will definitely visit again.
Quite simply one of the best meals I have ever eaten - and we are foodies!
I had octopus - not only were the flavours amazing, it was so tender it just melted in my mouth. My partner had a vegetarian tart and said the flavour combo was stunning.
We shared a rhubarb tart desert - again delicious. Just the perfect amount of sharp and sweet, and a dusting of marjoram was perfect.
Amazing. In a GREAT setting too! We cannot recommend it enough.
Bodega has improved a lot since our last visit - food is genuinely tasty - service is good - but a little slow - nice reception too.
I’ve eaten here 4 or 5 times and its always outstanding
A wonderful experience and I would definitely return. Thank you for a wonderful evening of attentive service and delicious food.
A very long wait for our food and while 2/3 dishes were great (the steak and the broccolini) the polenta was awful. Too sloppy, was meant to be three cheese but all you could taste was rosemary.
Excellent service. Food was delicious. We had the chefs menu which was heaps of food. Would go back again.
The food and drinks were more tasty and interesting than expected - was surprised that the standard has maintained itself after a couple of years - definitely an impressive place for a girls night out!
Amazing food, and a good sommelier who will let you try interesting new wines.
Second time at Bodega. Always a nice experience. The key is not to over order...
The food was very good and the guy handling the wine was very knowledgable and helpful - including offering a couple of samples that were excellent. The ambience in the tramshed was great and noise levels were low, even with people moving around outside the restaurant. We had an excellent time, and would definitely recommend the restaurant.
Service was great, food ok not as good as the Surry hills menu
Recently changed menu is superb. Great tastes and quality service
Lovely staff and yummy food and the decor is beautiful
Lovely food and great service- perfect for a belated team Xmas lunch
We had the set menu in New Year’s Eve - the food was wonderful, so was the matching wine and the service was great. We will be back. Thanks for a great night!
Had a fabulous meal, thoroughly enjoyed everything. Definitely recommend.
Great food, amazing service! I came here for lunch and look forward to coming back for dinner at the bar!
Excellent service and outstanding food. The tramsheds is also a great spot for a coffee before or an ice-cream after.
Great food and service! Perfect for our family Christmas dinner. Extensive wine list with lots of natural wines.
Never fails to disappoint and service is always top notch. A regular favourite.
A great evening out. Fabulous food and excellent wine choices. Not too noisy. Attentive but not overbearing service. All of this and within easy walking distance of home!
You could be in Barcelona: this Bodega has all the attributes one expects of a Spanish/South American/ Australian style bar and restaurant. The staff could not have been more helpful, even offering some wines to taste before choosing, and meals were excellent, especially the lamb ribs. Comfortable, great for people watching at the bar, and an excellent selection of vino (I may have already said that!).
Bodega was nearly empty when we visited. The food was uninspiring and the serving sizes small, especially the "large" tortellini dish my son was served which was small and priced at $36.00, more than the fish dishes the rest of us ordered. The crockery was thick and unsophisticated, much like you would find at the local cafeteria or leagues club. Not what you would expect for $32 to 36 for a main.
Love this place and the food was great but the vego options (while tasty) were focused on pasta and cheese - tough sell next door to A Tavola! The original Bodega generally had more vego variety. The lamb was excellent though.
This place had it all, the food was astonishing! Flavours I had never tasted that just bursted in your mouth, followed by outstanding service that I haven't experienced in a long time. Super attentive, friendly, plates replaced with each new meal, drinks topped up before they were empty etc.
I have already recommended to friends and family. Cannot wait to dine here again!
Food was lovely. Service ok. Wine very expensive for the type of restaurant. Bench seats in the booths very uncomfortable for an older lady and a pregnant lady. Also booth seats were very low for an average person.
We have eaten here 4 times since opening
So we decided to take foodie friends here fordinner
To say we were disappointed is an understatement
The food and service compared to our previous visits was 3 out of 10
Will not be returning any time soon
We had a very tasty and filling lunch for 6 people. The service was very good and the staff polite. Food arrived promptly. I would certainly return.
Excellent place with amazing food and vibe. Each plate was a delight and the staff made sure your night was an excellent one.
Thankyou. Seventh wedding anniversary and everything was perfect.
Food is amazing, great wine list, friendly & accomodating! Definitely on the regular list!
The flavours were great. the staff were friendly and went out of their way to assist with accommodating a genuine dietary allergy with menu advice for a member of our party. Will go there again.
I think each time we go to Bodega it just gets better, and it was great to start with. The food on Sunday night was exceptional. We had the blood sausage, Cod fritters, steak, cauliflower side, yum yum yum. We look forward to going back soon.
PLEASE improve the service. We sat there for ages before anyone came to take even our wine order. And it was definitely not busy. We decided to order everything at once, as were concerned it would take another 20 mins before our food order was taken. No one checked on us to see if we were enjoying the meal either. We had our water topped up all the time, this was great, and only once were we asked if we'd needed another wine... Another suggestion: we had a vege with us, and apart from a very small salad, there was nothing on the main menu she could eat. I appreciate Sth American food is very meat heavy, but really feel there are enough amazing vege dishes that could be added. Apart from that food was delicious, wine was delicious, dessert was delicious, and would come back again because the food (and the WA chardonnay) made the day.
Great food, good service and amazing choice of drinks! falls short on space but that's Sydney for you...
