Evoking an authentic Latin American experience, La Bodeguita Restaurant sits inside the landmark Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre. Dishes from across South America are served, with live music and salsa dancing fuelling the unbeatable atmosphere.

Specialities from across South America feature on the La Bodeguita menu. Colombian bandeja paisa mixes meats like pork belly and sausage with plantain, avocado and red kidney beans, and prime cuts of Argentinian steak are served with homemade chimichurri. There are also seafood stews, and specially marinated king prawns.

There are homemade fruit juices served at La Bodeguita Restaurant Elephant & Castle, as well as cocktails, and South American specialities like Refajo (a beer and soft drink combination) that you won't find anywhere else in London.

Overflowing with Latin American spirit, La Bodeguita Restaurant in London is just 2 minutes' walk from Elephant & Castle Tube Station.

    I went for information from friends and family. The Colombian food that you offer is very varied but it lacks a lot of quality. The presentation of the dishes was fine. Very good service.

    It was great! People were charming and food was delicious!

    Went eary ish (7:30) with a friend with the idea of dining and dancing. First disappointment was that dancing starts at 11:00 pm! Way too late to enjoy as we were both relying on the tube so had to leave at 11:30! Ordered 'picada'. Very disappointing! I would give it 2 out of 10. Service was prompt and staff approachable though.

    Very busy restaurant. Terrible service and charge for everything. I ordered a drink thato had stale fruit returned it and still got charged. Portions are big, taste is okay.

    Very quick and attentive service. Had a delicious steak dish (carne assada). Was hoping for some live music to lift the atmosphere of the place, but that might be something that is only done on the weekends.

    The food is good, the management is good as well, and the attention to answer a request is good too...
