Description: This is a tiny and familiar restaurant. Customers like it because they feel like at home. It is the first tapas bar in Colombia and is well known by its contemporary menu, composed by traditional Spanish tapas like tortilla, Serrano, but also by its creations. They even have their own version of patatas bravas and they are actually very famous. The Serrano salad, the white fish in basil oil with asparagus and dried tomatoes, tha lamb burgers etc. Tapas go along well with a cold beer, a glass of sangria or wine. If you want to have a unique and personalised experience come to Tapas Macarena. Feel free to order what you want, ask the waiter or the cooks. And something else, the music is really nice.....

We hunted this place down in the Macarena district from previous articles. They were right in terms of quality, with the best ceviche we've had a good selection of beer and a great starters menu. On top of this the staff were extremely helpful and enthusiastic. The only downside being the price, would be acceptable for a London lunch but... More

Go to this place. You will enjoy it. Food is very good and the staff is very good. We had the meatballs, blood sausage and patatos. All of them score high. The place is just excellent.

We are currently on our honeymoon having just got married in Spain and I can without doubt say the tapas I've had here are the best I've ever had even better than Spain! The flavors in each dish were astounding. By far my favorite was the Pinchos! Would highly recommend their Patatas Bravas with aioli also. Very small restaurant we... More

The best tapas me and my boyfriend have ever had. It is such a nice, cozy restaurant in a quiet street of Bogota. We really recommend this place. Try the beef (res) pinchos! Fast and good service. Suitable for couples or groups up to 4-5.

Tapas Macarena was a blast. The food was tremendous (try the Pulpo, Ceviche y los jamones), and the selection of beers and wines were pretty impressive for the small place. The service was outstanding, and the waitstaff provided great recommendations. The area where this restaurant is located is a hidden gem. There are tons of other hip restaurants and cafes,... More

Came back to celebrate the birthday of a friend and again were not disappointed. Even so the staff changed, food was great, service very friendly and the atmosphere familiar as always. Great that they keep it for so long now!

Went there with a group of friends (we were four and the place can probably only fit about an absolute maximum of twenty people) and had a very fun dinner, albeit late. Limited wine selection but very appropriate for the menu which is well balanced with meats, fish, and vegetable dishes. The tapas are flavorful and unpretentious as is the... More

I can say that this is my favorite restaurant in Bogota. It reminds me of a tiny place in Gracia, Barcelona. My friends and I would like to congratulate the whole team. We ordered rainforest mushrooms, excellent! with basil oil made with pines, portobellos, mushrooms and orellanas, with anchovies and manchego cheese. We had a wonderful and very generous salad...
