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.

    Mixed feelings about la bodeguita.The worse experience my friends and I had, it was bitterly cold and none of the heaters were "on" or "working". We would have appreciated very much a phone call or a text being told about the situation before we arrived. We felt as if were ingored completely and subtly being pushed to buy drinks to keep us warm. The food overall was good, the waiters seemed very impotent in the face of the situation. The cocktalis were terrible but the DJ & music were amazing.

    The food and service were alright. It was quite humorous that the staff mostly spoke Spanish to us but we got there in the end. They did get some of our food wrong though but the portions are very large! We decided to go here for the late night dancing and that was great! Highly recommend to go and dance the merengue!

    It was excellent. My girlfriend is from Puerto Rico and told me it was legit Colombian and Argentinian food. I always wanted to bring her there and we both enjoyed it so much. The food was excellent and tasty, the drinks where perfect and we had great service . Only note will be maybe more Cuban , puertorrican dishes ;)

    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.
