La Bodega was born of our love for Spanish food and culture.


We fuse all of the flavours of the Mediterranean with the quality of seasonal and local ingredients.


We are located on the main road through Ranelagh village. The interiors are inspired by traditional Spanish country design and feature classic art and Moorish lighting. Stepping inside transports you to warm memories of holidays gone by. We look forward to welcoming you.


Our Inspiration

A Passion for Spain

La Bodega was opened in 2010, to recreate those perfect places we found and loved on our travels to beautiful locations across Spain. We wanted to take the charm, character and authenticity of those wonderful places and bring them home with us to share with our customers.

From the bustling pintxo bars in San Sebastian to the sprawling cellars serving rustic stews in Catalonia, we combined all of our experiences and with the help of our talented kitchen team, we were able to make those dreams a reality. We hope you enjoy it as much as we loved creating it.
