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.

    The worst service ive ever seen in London. The waiters completely ignored us the first 20min after arriving they did not even ask us for drinks, we had to chase them all the time, at least 4 different persons "attended" us, half of them were lost and did not speak english.

    The ceviche is in fact a cocktail which is completely different, a mess up in the drinks orders, had to repeat things over and over again even to get a glass of water. La carne asada was not cooked as asked and the different pieces of meat were cooked irregularly.

    One of the waiter did not even know which plates he was serving us. For a colombian restaurant i would have expected much more, we were very disappointed. I definitely will not come back.

    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.

    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.
