La Bodega Negra Restaurant
Great vibes in the underground restaurant with delicious food and some of the best margaritas I have ever had. Staff were lovely and welcoming. There is a bar area you can hang out in and have more drinks after your meal too.
The food was unreal. Probably the best guacamole I’ve ever had and that takes into consideration allot of tropical counties we’ve visited. The service as fast, attentive, and very warm. Both of our servers were top notch. Even had some laughs with the manager. (Our first waiter Bruno looked just like Messi) highly recommend this place and don’t be fooled by the exterior like we were when we hesitantly opened the door to see if the place no longer existed 😂. And they have 1942 🤤. This place will be an official staple of any visit to London. I hope whoever reads this has an equally spectacular time 🥳🥳🥳
Loved Bodega Negra - great atmosphere and decor here. They had an awesome happy hour from 4-7pm, every Monday to Friday, where 2 margaritas were £15, which was a great deal. I had both the regular margarita and the hibiscus margarita. Both were delicious but the hibiscus was a showstopper. We had the guacamole to start, as well as the prawn tostada - both were excellent and good portions. We finished with the lamb taco, which came with two small tacos, and had amazing flavour. Would definitely come back and would be a great date spot!
This place is quite ok for cocktails and cake.
As an overall experience I would say this was a roller coaster. They had tables free but they didn’t want to seat two people on them so they placed us in the bar. Not a great start of the evening. Some of their cocktails were quite watery and mediocre for the price they charge.
They good portions are quite the joke. I’d honestly not even bother. Nothing unique or worthy of the visit.
They chocolate cafe was quite nice so I’d give credit there but apart from that …
